The Tonkatsu of pork tenderloin was super tender and juicy (allthough a bit expensive). Served in less the 20 minutes. The choice of sauces is also really nice.

Mostly long tables and communal dining serving deep fried pork, with big lumps of fat! The sauces are nice and the service was fine, but I wouldn't go back of our of my way to eat here! And it's not cheap. Really disappointing given the...More

I did admittedly do the rounds of the best restaurants in Kyoto and this came highly recommended in many places. I literally can't fault our lunch here. The main Katsu is incredible - we had Pork lion and it was just so tender and juicy....More

Tonkatsu is crispy outside and the meat is so soft almost melting in your mouth. They serve with unlimited brown rice and cabbage. One of the must-try place.

Juicy and tender, one of the best I've eaten. The miso soup is also excellent; I loved all the root vegetables they put inside. Free flow of rice, salad and soup. I would recommend the special pork (can't remember the name-the most expensive one) because...More

Nice spot, superb Kyoto pork. Worth a visit if you stay around but better to arrive early for dinner if you do not want to wait to be seated as it is not a big place.

My second meal at this chain. Their meat are very tender. Like their chawamushi too. Prices are very affordable.

Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub,
Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining,
and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with
tourists and local business travelers, making it a
competitive location for ever-new commercial
structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and
trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains.
Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and
