Place is probably frequented by tourists but the food is pretty decent. Had the korubata pork, tenderloin and ginger pork slices for 4 pax to share. More than enough food. Would recommend to eat if you’re in the area.

We went for a dinner after I red some good reviews about the tonkatsu. I had never realised the restaurant is awarded with 1 star Michelin till we arrived at the restaurant. The tonkatsu which came in a generous size was the best we've ever...More

This is probably the best tonkatsu we had. My wife and I each had the black pig with large shrimp set. What we were impressed with was that the pork loin wasn’t so fatty, as if it’s perfectly marbled, so unlike many other tonkatsu restaurants....More

One of the best pork katsu that I have ever tasted in my life! It was crunchy on the outside, yet tender and juicy on the inside.

The Kurobuta Tonkatsu was simply delicious. Meat was juicy and tender, bread batter was done just right, something difficult. The Japanese rice that came with the set was so good that I had to finish it. Restaurant ambience is cozy.

Anyone who tells you they can replicate the flawless, crispy breading of this tonkatsu is either ignorant or deceitful. Light crunch, perfect pork, fresh prawns. Grinding sesame to add to tonkatsu sauce is a nice touch too. Overall, a great meal. Service was great as...More

Stopped here for dinner after seeing the reviews and left full and extremely happy. We had the pork fillet and the mixed katsu and it was all delicious. The miso was just about the best we've had in Japan too. Quick service and fair prices...More

The fatty cut of kurobuta is actually from Kagoshima but the whole meal works well and quality is great. The breaded outside is different from other shops too. English menu available.

Best katsu that I've ever had. Feathery light batter with no trace of excess grease. Free flow miso soup, rice and shredded cabbage. 1.5k yen for a mixed katsu platter which included 3 pieces of oyster, one prawn and a very tender pork fillet.

I had a wonderful meal with my family at this restaurant. The service is very good. I’m usually not a fan of deep fried food, but this is fried to perfection. No greasy taste at all, I will definitely go back again if I am...More
