This restaurant was listed on Michelin guide as a Bib Gourmand. It was relatively easy to find and had a traditional vibe with an open kitchen. We waited about 10 minutes before being seated on the second floor. We ordered pork cutlet, fried prawn, fried anago (eel), with rice/picked vegetables/miso soup. The pork loin cutlet was delicious - very tender with a nice crisp. The fried anago was my favorite and well worth the money. The prawn was sold at the market price, a little over 4,000 yen - also worth getting. Between the two of us, we paid about 80 USD. Definitely worth trying out if you’re willing to splurge a little!


Tonkatsu’s pork tenderloin is fairly tender and juicy, nicely done - but it could be better - the bread crumbs at the bottom of the tonkatsu is soaked by tenderloin’s vapor, some other places will try to avoid that by adding some space under...

Their salad on the other side is just perfect.

Overall, it’s a great restaurant worth trying.


A cutlet restaurant with tradition atmosphere. They serve English menu and cutlet pork chop is alright. What amaze me is the cutlet squid, thick in size with very good texture , what a masterpiece! Waitress asked me politely and see if I need to have some more rice! (Note: restaurant close at 8pm)
