Nishimura Reviews

Nishimura Google Average Rating



This place is also listed in the top 100 and has good reviews locally, plus the prices are very reasonable. The premium loin is only $1600!

Around 12 noon, there were already a few office workers lining up, but the wait was quite fast. I waited for about 15 minutes for the first 3-4 groups. While waiting, I already placed my order, so as soon as I sat down and wiped my hands, the food was served.

There was already plenty of cabbage, and I didn't need to ask for more. I prefer the slightly sour citrus vinegar with cabbage. The pork cutlet was fried to perfection, crispy and flavorful. The pork was juicy, tender, and not greasy, with a hint of miso flavor. The breading wasn't super thin and tended to separate easily, but that was fine for me. The only downside was the lack of a cooling rack, so if you eat slowly like me, the side of the pork cutlet touching the plate gets soggy.

The miso pork soup in the set was also rich and flavorful, with well-marinated white radish.

To be honest, it's quite delicious, but not as amazing as the top 100 restaurants. However, considering the price, the quality is really good.


A nearby restaurant close to the hotel. I got the Kaki Mixed Katsu Set (deep fried oyster, pork, and shimp) with three different sauces. The food was delicious.


The restaurant is quite small, can fit in like 15 people maximum I guess? Most of the staffs are like grandmas and granddads, they are always smiling when serving you! No need to mention the pork katsu tasted really good! The portion was quite big, I think it would be just nice for guys.
