We really liked this restaurant, where you get to make your own sauce at your table. Katsu was lovely and English menu/instructions are available.

Found the place ok thanks to reading earlier reviews. We were seated straight away but were relatively early and it was already getting busy by the time we finished. The English menu was helpful and staff were attentive and ready to explain how it all works. We both had pork but although ordered from different parts of the menu not... More

Delicious. Moist and Flavorful. Grind your own sesame seeds, select your own sauce, enjoy endless pickles and microscopically shredded cabbage. Delicious. Server brought an English menu and explained some of the restaurant's procedures.

I was so looking forward to dining here after being recommended by a friend back home but somehow ended up a bit disappointed. We initially had a bit of difficulty locating the place because they didn't have an English sign. After asking around, we eventually found it. It's located on the 11th floor along the hallway leading to the toilets... More

Be prepared to queue 15 to 30min. Yeap, it is famous among local too. We like that you get to customize the sesame sauce and unlike other outlet, dipping into this customize sauce indeed enhanced the fry pork taste.The fry prawn is fresh but the bounce sensation is kinda limited, kinda odd. All in all, it is still above average,... More

Located in the The Cube building attached to Kyoto station on the 11 th floor. Speciality is pork , various size portions can be ordered , very good, English menu available, staff get by with English. You probably have to wait for a table as a relatively small restaurant.

The dipping sauces were really good (you grind up your own sesame and mix w/ your fav sauce, very aromatic!). The pork was dry and the service wasnt great.

Queued for about 30 minutes to get a table here at peak dinner time... it was absolutely worth it. The food is very good - we shared one tonkatsu and one portion of spare rib. This was equally good. The tonkatsu comes with unlimited soup, rice and cabbage - all of the accompaniments are excellent and refreshed frequently. Prices are... More
