One of the oldest and most famous reasonably priced "Tonkatsu" deep fried pork- cutlet restaurants I have known in Tokyo. I first ate there about 50 years. It is open on Sundays as well and always very crowded. Just a walking distance from Meguro JR...More

I gave a second chance to this famous tonkasu place, I want to revise my previous opinion: the pork was nice and juicy, just choose the fat one. There is a funny very quite atmosphère, very silent even though the place is big: people come...More

We went there for lunch. Closed! We hung around the neighborhood for 6 hours till dinner. The place is quite large by Japanese standards. The tonkatsu preparation is good kitchen drama, but the whole experince was just average, especially the main dish. A bit disappointing.

Simple, tasty, fun! The food and service were great. Simple menu—two meat options—so we chose one of each. To be honest I think I liked the leaner meat option but both were very good.

This Tonkatsu restaurant near Meguro Station is wonderful. It’s an institution that has been operating for more than 40 years. There is usually a queue but you sit on seats at the side and it doesn’t take long to be seated at the serving bench....More

Lovely little restaurant tucked away. Very crowded but feels relaxed. The staff miraculously dressed completely in white run a tight ship. You really have a choice of fatty tonkatsu or lean tonkatsu. It comes with unlimited shredded cabbage, miso, rice and these terrific pickles. It...More

If you want to have a taste of an amazing tonkatsu, you are in the right place. Tonki is very famous in Tokyo so there is always people queuing to enter, please be patient and you will be rewarded with the awesome meal. You won't...More

Loved sitting at the bar here and watching the guys wheel out portion after portion of Tonkatsu. Apparently this place opened in 1939, and it looked like one of the chefs may well have been here since then, but despite his advanced years he masterfully...More

Shinagawa / Gotanda
In Shinagawa, an office district shares space with
luxury residential buildings and the scene is
constantly changing with rapid development. Ikedayama
park and Togoshi park are great places to see
beautiful traditional Japanese gardens with ponds, as
well as enjoy the changing seasons. Shinagawa was a
post and a port town during the Edo era and the lavish
old Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples at Shinagawa
