Had difficulties finding this place on good maps then realising it's in the subway station! We ordered the set for two with a variety of different types. The tonkatsu was amazing! The outside was crispy and the inside was moist and most importantly didn't get...More

We stopped in here after figuring out that other pictures of the outside are from another restaurant. Had the pork, shrimp, crab cream croquettes. All were great.

Tried this place for lunch and it was quite crowded. The food was really good and the service fast. The only thing maybe lacking is that in comparison to other Tonkatsu places in Tokyo, they serve only a max of 2 pork loin pieces.

Wasn't expecting much from this place (a fast-food feel to it), but the tonkatsu were great. Not greasy and perfectly crunchy! Cheap too!

Tricky to find, but well worth the effort. Located in the subnade this restaurant is not for the diet conscious but fantastic value for money and a very enjoyable meal when you have been on your feet in the rain all day. Highly recommend

Best Tonkatsu, our friends recommended to us, my husband liked it so much we visited twice, but during meal time would be a long wait. One good thing is they have chairs outside the restaurant you can sit and wait.

We had read the great reviews for Tonkatsu Wako on TripAdvisor, we wondered the mall looking for this place but couldn't find it, then we came across a restaurant that sold Tonkatsu & as it was getting late decided to try it. Turns out it...More
