My wife and I were in town for work for about 6 months. During the first 2 months, we went to Katsu once, sometimes twice a week. The food at Katsu is perfect. We have never had any issues with the food. The rice is the only weak spot when it comes to the food. Nothing special, no vegetables, no... More

This was good but I have been to better. The chef was very good especially with the two children with us. The fried rice was plentiful but nothing special - no vegetables nor egg. Shrimp was small. Chicken teriyaki was very good. Drink service was poor. I was totally out of water.

The staff at Katsu were friendly and made every effort to make my graduation Celebration wonderful. They made quick work of adding extra people who showed up to our dinner and never made us feel like we were inconveniencing them. The food was incredible, the show was fun and made my son's eyes light up with joy. Thank you for... More

My husband and wre riding around trying to find a late night dinner. We came upon this place by happen chance. The food was good and the wait staff were humorously professional. This would be a great place to bring large groups.

Kind of an odd layout to this place but was visiting daughter at college and location was great for us. Waitress wasn't very good and I rarely complain about service on my reviews but this just wasn't good at all. Forgot food, drinks, etc...Sushi was ok, not the best by any means but not bad either just middle of the... More

A small party of friends went here for dinner this evening to celebrate a birthday. Not much of a "show" put on by server and all the food, except the rice, was salty. Just a disappointment after having had so many great dinners at this location. I would not recommend.

We decided to try this out whilst visiting from the UK despite my husband not liking Japanese food, think it's just the sushi though. Didn't know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised, we didn't mind sharing the table. The chef was very entertaining especially as it was our first visit. Didn't realise how much good there would be and... More
