I love eating at restaurants that specialize in one type of food. Tonkatsu Ginza Bairin certainly fits the bill. We had the chicken katsu, the pork loin katsu and the pork loin katsu curry. I highly recommend the pork loin katsu curry. It was perfectly...More

Amazing genuine Katsu cooking. I recommend the thick cut tenderloin, but everyone in out party ordered something different and thoroughly enjoyed it

We visited there around 9 without reservation , but they gave us a table within 10 mins. We tried the Donbury of tiger shrimp and the chicken Katsu. Both foods come with a lot of salad. Decent price for this area. Good food

We visited Ginza Bairin on our hotel concierge's recommendation. He had lived in Japan and felt it was the best in Waikiki. This place did not let us down. The panko was crisp and light. The tonkatsu sauce was perfect. The katsu-curry don was inhaled...More

This restaurant specializes in breaded pork chops or tonkatsu in Japanese. The pork ranges from tough and tasteless to tasty and pretty tender, depending on how much you are willing to pay. The really best pork chops are very good, but an order is $...More
