Highly priced and super slow service. Loads of people cleared out but the line going in still hasn't moved. Upon going in to ask, I was told to go wait outside and that there's a queue. For the price and the service, I'm wondering if we would be better off eating at the opposite restaurant.

The place is a bit hard to find but definitely worth getting a wagyu katsu - it's different and tasty! Only downfall is the price.

Would recommend the cheese tonkatsu - it's pretty tasty and the set meal is decent value for money as well.

Try the katsu with the cheese filling. Light crispy exterior. Interior is unique as they use layers of pork rather than one solid piece. Definitely try this place if you are craving katsu.

Was looking for some tonkatsu near my hotel when TA said this was closest. Hard to find for someone who can't read Japanese. You have to go thru the door at street level and down an escalator and walk along a hallway. Two restaurants are on your right. It's NOT the restaurant with the pig mascot. The staff didn't speak...

Conveniently located in the famous Dotonbori area. The restaurant itself is hidden from the crowd in the basement of a theater building. Theie menu is not big with a selection of either katsu set or just the katsu itself. There are several different fillings of the katsu. I would recommend black pepper. Must try when in Osaka.

Description
Kimukatsu own recipe The best part of the pork cutlet is, what texture of clothing that was also the crispy saying and juicy taste of pork. Only the delicious part of the carefully selected domestic pork loin (also referred to as the "millefeuille of meat") piled 25 sheets in the ultra-thin slices and fried to clothe the raw bread crumbs of special. As a unique cooking method, carefully 8 minutes fried at a low temperature of the oil, and steaming further vertical to to 2 minutes. This heat is transferred to the uniform by, it will be drawn for maximum flavor. Fluffy texture, accumulate gravy between one by one of pork became millefeuille like, a very juicy taste "Kimukatsu". Kimukatsu is deep-fried to order from us carefully one by one. The taste of Kimukatsu multiplied pains, please taste your slowly please. How to enjoy Kimukatsu Also choose from seven types of flavor is will tend to be lost, but also to taste the real thrill of "Kimukatsu" We recommend the "plane". (There is also platter where you can enjoy a variety of flavors you.) The source also we offer, but please enjoy and refreshing no other "special wholesale ponzu". And, please with us more favor "cooked fresh rice set" the charm of the Kimukatsu. The combination of juicy "Kimukatsu" and piping hot, shiny "cook fresh rice" is the strongest combination. The reason for issuing a cabbage in front of the "Kimukatsu" Shredded heaping cabbage has served before to enjoy the "Kimukatsu". Cabbage send for every day from domestic best of origin in accordance with the season, and crunchy, which was crisp, was in the "ultra-fine cut" so that you enjoy the freshness. The "vitamin U" that is included in the cabbage there is a work that will protect the mucous membrane of the stomach, will relieve the burden on the stomach when you eat fried food. Over a special dressing, delicious, please enjoy plenty shredded cabbage. All changes are free therefore do not hesitate to.
