I had the kurubota tonkatsu, which is prime pork, rich and juicy. My wife had the filets, not as rich, but very tasty. The wait was not long, as this place moves quickly.

For those who love tonkatsu this is a nice place to eat in. The place is small but its worth it. It could sometimes be quite a line but its worth it.

A very small place as with all restaurants in Tokyo. We waited for about half an hour to get a seat and had to split up with 2 at the counter and 3 at the table else we’ll be waiting even longer. It was nice...More

So good I had to return during my time in Tokyo. Excellent portion of tonkatsu served on tasty cabbage with rice and miso soup. Great value for your money in a very central and accessible location in Ginza.

There was a long line of people waiting for the restaurant to open for lunch. We were the last lucky two people to be seated at the bar. The rest of the people in line waited patiently for the first group to finish their lunch....More

It’s easy to find. I waited in line for 20 minutes, not too long. We didn’t know how to Order as we didn’t know the difference between the different meals. So we ordered the one that costs 1000 and the one that costs almost 3000....More

Very good place if u walk around Ginza, very close to Ginza Six. I only tried one dish. It doesnt need any reservations, just walk in. I would recommend for a good quick lunch if you are in the area.

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular

We went there tonight and had to wait half an hour in the queue, did not see anyone jump the queue while we were there. I am pretty sure you cannot book, just come and wait (if necessary).
