Very meaty and juicy(but not too rich)Tonkatsu ever. Deep fried oyster is great. (4-5oysters in one). Must try it in winter season!


Went for dinner on a rainy day. It was quiet and there were only 2 customers. I ordered the tonkatsu meal set. It was so tasty! The meat was so tender and delicious. The best I ever had. Rice, soup and side dishes were also very yummy! The best tonkatsu I ever had compared to other countries I've been to! I'm a tourist and don't speak Japanese so we communicated with gestures and G**gle translate. There were two workers that night and they were friendly, patient and attentive! I would definitely go back 😊 Recommend trying!!

I didn't take a picture because I couldn't wait to eat ! 😄


The food tastes great but the the place feels small. (Maximum is 12 people)
