Services were friendly and prompt. There are pork cutlet, chicken Cutlet and fried shrimp to choose from. We try their pork and chicken Cutlet.. both test really awesome. Grind and mix your own condiments. I will definitely try again the next time I visit Nara!

Highly recommend the pork chop 100g and prime pork chop 75g set. Specially prime tasted great! All menus come with condiments including rice, miso soup, little soft tofu and pickles. Staff is nice and waiting line was not too bad during lunch time.
