My friends highly recommended this place for its juicy thick Kurobuta tonkotsu. This particular restaurant cuts its Kurobuta at least 2" thick and its tonkotsu is still juicy in the inside and crispy on the inside. They said it's the very reason why they fell in love with tonkotsu. It's really good but I guess I am not too keen... More

The Taiwanese family sitting beside me came on the recommendation of reviews like those before this. Seems like we are the result of mob instinct and the quality of the food from rice to sauces to vegatables and of course even the premium quality pork fillet is nothing short but ordinary. After their first mouthfuls, they did not disagree the... More

We ordered the tonkatsu (especial pork cutlet) and it was delicious - crispy and smooth. In addition to tourists, plenty of locals which confirm its quality.

This is the best ever katsu ever touched by my tongue :) Their rice is also perfect. Two thumbs up. The location is hard to find. But when you've experienced it, well it was quite worth the effort. Tenderloin katsu is a must try.

I've had a lot of Katsu (I live in Hawaii), but this was amazing! The staff was very friendly, great atmosphere, and pretty inexpensive. I'd suggest going around lunch as we didn't have much of a wait. We tried to go a 2nd time (we loved it that much), but there was quite a wait around dinner time. They do... More

We ate the Teramachi & Shinkyogoku shopping area Katsukura restaurant. One of the best Katsu ever. Sauce is awesome. Worth it.

We were travelling with an allergic person. The staff was not very helpful in trying to find something he could eat. Their best suggestion was whiskey and coke for dinner. For the rest of us the food was good enough.
