“Worth the money! Excellent Tonkatsu & Salad Dressings!”
Reviewed April 26, 2012

This place serves very yummy fried stuff -- tonkatsu, etc. I ordered fried shrimps, and they arrived crispy-fried! The salad dressing that they serve was so good i bought a bottle to bring back home!

“For a chain restaurant its very very good!”
Reviewed April 25, 2012

After reading the reviews here and elsewhere I was really tempted to try out the tonkatsu.. the wife, less so, but she humoured me! We actually ate at the Sanjo St branch rather than the one at Kyoto station (due entirely down to the proximity of our hotel) but at the end of the night she was converted by the succulent tonkatsu, generous portions and good value (for japan).. I had the extra thick premium fillet, she had the fillet and prawns. We both enjoyed extra barley rice and other accoutrements (included in the price), with the grind-your-own seasame as part of your own custom made dip an extra little touch.. the staff were helpful, with enough spoken English (and English on the menus themselves) to make it a pretty painless exercise! Recommended (though liking pork helps!) :)

“Lots of reasonably priced food”
Reviewed April 13, 2012

This place is about tonkatsu – a deep fried pork cutlet. Choose one of the sets displayed at the entrance, before you sit down. You get lots of good food. There is an order in eating and using what is on the table. Either look at what Japanese at next table do, or the waiter will instruct. This is a reasonably priced large amount of food at the Kyoto train station’s “The Cube” on the 11th floor. Bon Appetite!

“Good eating at reasonable prices.”
Reviewed January 4, 2012

Travelling with a party of 6 necessitated hearty but reasonably priced food which restaurants at "The Cube" provided. We had 2 evening meals at 2 different places and were satisfied with our choices. We opted for Japanese food and there was plenty of choice. It is conveniently located at Kyoto Railway Station on the 11th floor of the central shopping complex best accessed by the lifts in the Isitan department store.
