Kurobuta pork cutlet in Goro

I was recommended by my Airbnb host to this pork cutlet restaurant ’Tonkatsu-Rikyu'. He said that the owner uses only the finest domestic “kurokbuta” pork cutlets and I was not disappointed! They only open from 17:00 to 18.30 for dinner so I arrived early at 17:30. There was a guy already seated... read more

We had really excellent pork tasting like no other pork. No sure but it must be famous kurobotu pork. Small restaurant but definitely recommend!

The chef explained the different type of pork cuts to us and accommodated us as we only wanted to share one set between the two of us. The pork is prepared, battered and cooked right in front of you for ultimate freshness. He is a gentle and quiet japanese man so that may be the reason others think he's rude,... More

We discovered the place rather by accident and were blown away by the tasty pork loin and tofu menus.

we pass by this little gem after visiting Gora Garden. never expect to have such a yummy deep fried pork in this little lane. the chef's a bit cool, there's only one menu available on that day. It's a MUST visit when you're at Gora and we definitely go back again.

Accidentally entered this restaurant while looking for lunch without knowing its actually famous. The taste really good and the pork very juicy, the Miso soup nice as well. Highly recommended if you will visit Hakone, just few footstep from Gora station, although abit pricy and I think its worth for trying.

My friend and I went there for dinner, the pork chop tastes amazing! The owner chef and his wife cooked the main course while we were having some nice appetizer. They were both friendly and we had nice conversation during dinner. definitely worth trying!

Near Gora station, we found Tonkatsu Rikyu while looking for lunch. Initially, we were the only ones in the restaurant. Simple establishment. A wood counter with about 10 seats. A prep area and kitchen are in front of the counter. And an old man and two women. For just over 3,000 Yen, we ordered the tonkatsu set menu. While at... More

Doesn't like foreigners. Even with my broken Japanese in an attempt to break the ice, he was unwilling to explain his menu. The place certainly wasn't busy. The pork was ok but I've had better. Certainly marred by the borderline hostile take it or leave it service. There's no room for that in any part of the world. And at... More

Stumbled across this one just around the corner from Gora train station. Walked past just before 2PM and it was about half full (10 seat restaurant). Decided to waste our 2:30 train ticket back to Hakone because this place just FELT like it had to be good before stepping inside. Just one old man does all the cooking and he... More
