Highly recommend the pork chop 100g and prime pork chop 75g set. Specially prime tasted great! All menus come with condiments including rice, miso soup, little soft tofu and pickles. Staff is nice and waiting line was not too bad during lunch time.

An excellent restaurant for tonkatsu and lunch time has value sets. Upgrade miso soup to Iberico pork soup. Staff speaks English.

It was the best tonkatsu in Nara to us! We ordered pork cutlet and chicken with egg, and both dishes were really tasty. Portions were bigger than expected, but service was a bit slow since it was lunch time and so many people was waiting.
