This is a Japanese restaurant, specializing in "Katsu" (breaded and fried meats). The food quality here is excellent, the service excellent, their prices reasonable, but can be very busy during peak hours, so will often wait in line. Check this place out, but perhaps during off peak hours for quick seating.

I visited yesterday to fill the Tonkatsu deficit in my diet. There was a time, that 30minutes before the gates went up, there would be a crowd lined up.

Today, Tonkichi has a few more outlets in HK and there are other Tonkatsu places as well. I have visited these as well... but tonkichi Tonkatsu at the world trade centre in causeway bay remains a sentimental favourite and I think has a little edge in terms of;
- menu choices
- quality of the ingredients
- service

I had the regular Tonkatsu, not the premium one - but it was tender and succulent - crispy ready and not greasy. It's not huge, but also not tiny.

The oysters, breaded and deep fried were great - but if you don't like your oysters cooked - go for the scallops

The prawn - done in the same style. One is never enough.

You can't do this every day - but if you want one, this is my favourite

Tell a real japanese what he thinks about this restaurant...
The price of the raw fish is just incredible. Not enough choice of fish and sea food (almost nothing). It is more a fast food than a restaurant. It is the worse japanese restaurant i have never seen in all the civilized countries i went before.

Tonkichi is located on the 4/F of World Trade Centre, Causeway Bay in Hong Kong. It is a specialty restaurant for Tonkatsu (deep fried pork cutlet) but it also serves other dishes like sashimi and sushi. When you order a cutlet dish, it comes in a set with pickled radish, miso soup, rice, and unlimited refill of shredded cabbage salad. Besides fried pork cutlet, there are also shrimp, oyster, scallop and minced beef with potato cutlet on the menu. The breading on the cutlet is so crispy yet the meat remains juicy and soft. It's absolutely delicious. It's a little pricy but worth every penny. If you go for dinner even on weekdays, please make reservation because it can get busy at night. If you are lucky, you might get a booth seating by the window with a spectacular harbor view.

One of my favourite Japanese restaurants in town. The cutlet is delicious, though deep fried, but never oily, and the batter never too thick, just good enough to wrap around the meat for the crunchiness. The tonkatsu set comes with shredded cabbage salad and rice, the latter two are free for how many refill you may want. Cabbage is so fresh, sweet and crunchy I seldom add the salad dressing onto it. All in all, it's simply terrific!
