Found this place just through google and loved the food. The tonkatsu was all made so well and it was so tender and delicious, would love to come back and have it again.


Best Tonkatsu I’ve ever had in my life.


Pretty sure that this is the best Tonlatsu Restaurant in Sannomiya area. A bit pricey (about 20% more than ordinary ones) but it is worth the money. Superb tender and delicious Rose and Filet Cutlet. But I liked big fried prawn.
