Been here a few times as well as the main restaurant in Shibuya. Fantastic Tonkatsu and unlimited supply of the freshest cabbage you can eat. A true institution in Tokyo and it is really, really good.

Found myself alone and looking for food and weather is just cooling down so a portion of deep fried pork is exactly what I needed. I went with the Kurobuta fillet and it was super soft and not too oily. Free refills of cabbage and rice come with the set as well as miso soup, pickles and a scoop of... More

Tonkatsu meansa breaded pork cutlet. Juicy pork cutlet with a crispy Panko breading and served up with a hot bowl of rice and cabbage salad, don't forgeot to seasoning the cabbage and pork with tonkatsu dressing, a dark, sweet, thick sauce.

I neven seen many kind of tonkatsu, even they have special black pork, mean special breed farm, and also they have loin tonkatsu, fillet tonkatsu and many others tonkatsu, they all look the same but different taste of pork. I love tonkatsu but this one special worth to try. They have English menu with drawing, waiters can speak english too.... More

We went there for lunch but by that time there premium cuts were sold out, however the Tonkatsu was still absolutely delicious and the Katsu sandwich we had was just something out of this world. The pork was just so tender that it literally melts in your mouth. Will definitely go early next time in Japan and recommend that while... More

This place was a little tricky to find, but absolutely worth the visit! The sauce that you mix yourself... I could have poured that over a sponge and eaten it. The tonkatsu was cooked to perfection, and this was truly one of my favorite meals I had in Tokyo!

My family loves this restaurant! But be careful - once you have tonkatsu prepared so perfectly - you will be spoiled ! Excellent service, kid friendly

Sought this place out after reading about it on TA. A little tricky to find on the 9th floor of the Tokyu dept. store because most of the signs are in Japanese, but if you look carefully, there is a sign with Maisen and the front display case has some bowls and plates of fried pork loins. Agree with the... More

The kurobota tonkatsu was so melt-in-your-mouth tender. Thinking other restaurants will taste similar is a huge mistake... This place has the best. By a wide margin.

They serve breaded deep fried pork. I had the pork served in a pot where they drenched the tonkatsu in some sort of broth with egg boiling away around it. It was quite yummy. Wouldn't have it again, but still yummy.

Neighborhood Profile
Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast, Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
