The restaurant is located in the basement of a building but we found it easily. We arrived at 8.30pm on a Saturday and they were not taking any new customers for the night so they turned us away, but at the look on my face the owner took pity on us and let us in. The food was great, the... More

The pork was amazing! Portion was huge. We were told by the stuff that the dishes was big and we decided to share meals between us and they seemed not mind at all. The chef came to our table to show us the right way to have the meal. Even though the shop was filled with Japanese it was very... More

The food here is amazing. the chef came out to our table to show us how to eat it (heavy on sauce and dont be afraid to use a bunch of mustard). He spoke great english and we really enjoyed our meal here. one of the best in japan

This restaurant is located in the basement floor of a pretty large building. It is easy to find. You will have to wait in line - I did, on a Thursday evening. The katsu is awesome, and although it's a bit more expensive than most katsu, they give you a lot. I couldn't finish the rice. The staff are very... More

It is located in building basement diagonally from tenmonkan tram stop and Remm hotel. The pork looked a little over-fried with darker than usual fritter but it was very tender and juicy inside. Very large portion of pork with large prawns. Also love the generous portion of shredded cabbage to balance up the meal. we had to share among 3... More

The restaurant is located in the basement of the building. The owner Mr Take speaks English and will help you with the ordering. We ordered the black Pork and prawn sets. Although the batter appears dark, the taste is good and meat moist & succulent.

This restaurant is located in the basement of a business building. Most tables are tatami mat style. The fried black pork and shrimp platter was excellent. The shrimps were fresh and large. Mr. Take, the owner, speaks English. He came out and talked with us near closing time. When my wife could not finish her plate, they wrapped it real... More

The restaurant is in the basement of a building, so a little tricky to find even with GPS. a very famous restaurant but we were lucky as we did no have to wait long for our table. Very friendly service and they do speak a little English. Tonkatsu was huge but very juicy. A pleasant surprise when the owner came... More
