This is a small but nice restaurant tucked behind a larger mall. There are about 12 tables, but service is generally quick. There is only one service person, but he is very efficient. The food is excellent - my favorite is the chicken katsu curry.

Drive past here a few time, I decided to try it today. It's tucked in a small strip mall, kinda hard to find, also the name doesn't help the uninitiated, so most of the business is word of mouth. Really cute place, done up in...More

My very first attempt to have 'katsu'...and I was certainly not disappointed! Tender, succulent meat in a crunchy crust and served on a plate of salad....very nice. Will certainly repeat my 'katsu-experience'! Staff was very nice as well. Great to end with cotton candy👍

I'm a bit addicted to Tonkatsu and miss my business trips to Tokyo to indulge. I've been on a search in the bay area for a comparable dish for awhile and was excited to see that a tonkatsu-ya had opened in Mountain View. Tried Guru...More

This place recently opened. It doesn't try to be an "all things to all people" Japanese restaurant. Its a Japanese Katsu restaurant. That's it. And it does it well. Have eaten here a few times, the food is consistently good. For me, the portions are...More

Guru Katsu is the first of its kind here in the bay area. It's a tonkatsu-ya so they specialize in serving a variety of tonkatsu (fried pork). So don't come here expecting sushi or ramen or chicken terriyaki because they won't have it. The vibe/decor...More
