This is one of the best Tonkatsu I have tasted. I ordered the special edition fillet with YUzu sauce. I love Japanese Yuzu. The queue was Long at 6 pm at Daimaru 12 floor where this Restuarant reside. While waiting the waiter asked me in Japanese number of people. I replied in English and asked for English menu. Thank God... More

Have been here twice in the last couple of years and have found the quality to be consistent and high. There is always a line and wait outside the restaurant at lunch times (of mostly Japanese diners) which probably is a good indication of the restaurant. Have had the pork cutlet curry and regular cutlets. Both were very tasty and... More

I'm not overly keen on restaurants in shopping malls - i don't know perhaps they don't seem to try as hard as stand alone restaurants. But Maisen is a renown for their beautiful Tonkatsu and once you've been here you'll realise how mediocre other Tonkatsu places can be. Maisen don't skimp on the ingredients; Kurobota pork is very tender, their... More

If you're on a budget and you want to have great tonkatsu, come here during lunch time, their set menu's are really worth it and the food is oh so good!

Many consider Maisen as the best/second best Tonkatsu in Japan/Tokyo. And this one is extremely convenient in the Daimaru Shopping mall adjacent to the Tokyo Station. Find this outlet on the 12th floor. Staff friendly and speak some English. We had the Akai upper end Tonkatsu (must ask if they have availability) and the mainstream Kurobota Pork. Pricing for Dinner... More

I've had a lot of Tonkatsu in my life. All different kinds, over rice, with egg, made of fish, etc. This really was a totally different experience. I had the black pork filet and loin, and the quality of the meat is really apparent. If I had to pick again, I would go with the filet. The juicy, firm meat... More

I'm not the biggest fan of pork but when in Japan.... Even though the pork filet was fried, it wasn't super greasy and in a way felt light. Tasty meal, good service. We sat at the counter and got the watch as all the meals were prepared. Such precision!

Their donkatsu is well known to be delicious while the typical long queue in front of the restaurant often exhausts our tummy. Department store offers a great convenience to experience the taste of the famous cuisine. I went their around 3, and ordered without waiting. They have 3 grades of the meat selection, the cheapest option was sufficiently satisfiable for... More

I've been to Maisen numerous times, normally to the shop off of Omotesando. This was first time to the one in Daimaru Bldg. Somehow it seemed slightly less delicious - meat was a bit drier and 'mealier' than normal. Not sure if it was the particular piece of pork or the shop. Will perhaps stick to the shop near Omotesando.

Is the Long Queue worth it? Definitely is one of the good tonkatsu restaurant during our visit to Japan. The pork is juicy and very tender, definitely live up to the famous name.
