It is a must-go restaurant for their authentic and perfectly cooked tonkatsu. I am not a big meat fan but really enjoyed my meal.

Kinka pork was absolutely delicious!! Juicy and the outside was perfectly crispy. Perfect with a half bottle of wine. Only problem was our waiter took a while to come take our order, even when the place was not at its busiest. Still worth the wait...More

The Tonkotsu is crispy on the outside but tender in the inside. The finishing is just perfect. Free flow of rice, salad, miso soup. We were given a bowl of sesame seed to grind into powder while waiting for the food. After which, there are...More

We visited the place on a Saturday evening for dinner. There was a waiting line but we thought it would worth the wait since we have read lots of positive reviews on Tripadvisor. While waiting our 2yo daughter slept in the stroller but the staff...More
