Tonki is a restaurant serving tonkatsu only, and it is delicious! We liked the food a lot, and thought it was great fun being there as we could observe the cooks and staff working in front of us, preparing everybody’s food. Sitting downstairs at the...More

Our Airbnb host recommended this Tonkatsu place to us. We had to queue for about 15-20 mins before we were seated. We chose the slightly fatty Tonkatsu and we loved it! Rice and soup are bottomless so yay to that. We enjoyed every bite of...More

I have been here twice and I love it. It is worth the wait. It is fun to sit at the counter and watch the food be made. The food is simple Tonkatsu. It is cooked perfectly. I love the spicy mustard!

We were directed here by a friend who lives close by - wouldn't have found it otherwise! The menu was provided in English and has only two items - lean pork cutlet and pork cutlet with fat! Perfect - we had one of each. We'd...More

They only offer this one thing - pork tonkatsu (with cabbage, rice, miso and pickled vegetables). Best I’ve ever had in my life and 100% worth the wait. It is fun to sit at the counter and watch the impressive teamwork that goes into preparing...More

Ever grabbed a hot piece of meat from hot oil? That’s what chefs here do all day long! Ask to sit on the counter on the ground floor versus upstairs seating, although there may be a long waiting period. They will be happy to give...More

I have been going to Tonki for over 50 years and have never had a bad meal. Expect lines but the wait is worth it. Try the "HIr-re" - the filet. Watch the precision of the kitchen on the first floor but sit upstairs if...More

The restaurant has a large room with a central counter, and long benches on the sides where customers wait their turn. People keep coming non stop and the guy in charge has them sit around in apparent random sections on the benches. It looks like...More

Some friends have recommended the place, and although is usually somewhat crowded I decided to give a try after some 6 y ears living in the area. The regular tonkatsu fillet was nicely cooked, very tender and served with the original house sauce and all...More

Shinagawa / Gotanda
In Shinagawa, an office district shares space with
luxury residential buildings and the scene is
constantly changing with rapid development. Ikedayama
park and Togoshi park are great places to see
beautiful traditional Japanese gardens with ponds, as
well as enjoy the changing seasons. Shinagawa was a
post and a port town during the Edo era and the lavish
old Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples at Shinagawa
