Went last night after reading positive reviews. Queue moved quickly our order was taken while we queued but when we were seated we were told what we ordered had changed and were offered another set meal which included tea and ice cream (which I don't eat!). I can only think that this menu is given to us unsuspecting tourists as... More

Went on a Sunday lunch with the family. 30 min wait for quite a long queue was a nice surprise. The cutlets were OK but definitely not inspiring. Beware some cuts have quite a lot of fat under the breading. Kids menu is junk as in many places - meat is some meat mash, old pasta, plain rice. Better feed... More

I struggled on my recent trip to Japan - I don't see myself as a fussy eater, but I couldn't find too many places where anything looked remotely appetising to my Western tastes (my fault entirely, of course). If you're like me then Katsukura is right up your street. The food was delicious - the pork tenderloin (tonkatsu) melted in... More

This is as good as Japanese food gets, If you love Tonkatsu this is an absolute must place for you. Its more expensive than your generic restaurant Tonkatsu but its super good and every bite is worth every yen. They have their own home made souse and bring ingredients from Kyoto to keep it authentic.

This restaurant is on the 14 floor of the Takashimaya Shopping Centre next to Shinjuku Station I had been to the original restaurant in Kyoto; and so I know how delicious the Tonkatsu is. It literally melts in your mouth! There is an English menu and the service staff speaks English. The tonkatsu comes with refillable barley rice, shredded cabbage... More

Pricing might not be the cheapest for a tonkatsu meal, but you get what you pay for. Ordered the top premium meat and also the kurobuta (Berkshire) pork. Both were excellent, I prefer the kurobuta because it had a little less fat and more taste, but I think this is a personal opinion and there's a reason people pay for... More

We read about this restaurant in a couple of food blogger sites and were not disappointed. The tonkatsu was delicious. It's a great introduction to Japanese cuisine for children. The service was friendly and helpful. We'd definitely make a return visit if we visit Tokyo again.

We had been to the sister shop in Osaka years ago and still remembered fondly of our meal then. I found this shop in Shinjuku on the web and decided to try it out. The deep fried pork chops were very tender and moist. Simply high quality and delicious. I would definitely recommend it!

To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household.
