Was originally recommended another place by a friend who frequents Japan as much as I do. However, as it was a family trip we instead opted for another place, and this was the result. It is in one of those typically Japanese small streets, which...More

I was by myself and the restaurant looked a little fancier than I was dressed for. The take away booth right out front their door was a fast and convenient experience. It was 770 yen for the Tonkatsu and damn good.

Katsu anywhere else is nothing like it is in Japan. Tender, flavorful and not oily. This might be my favorite thing to eat there even more than sashimi or tempura. Ok I guess the A5 wagyu is up there too. Again we ordered way too...More

It was our first meal in Japan, and it was lovely. We were seated almost immediately after entering the restaurant. The waiter served us drinks after providing us with the menu. I ordered the Chicken Katsu which comes with barley rice, miso soup, as well...More

Had a great experience here, we had the Tonkatsu and it really was superb probably one of the best I have had in Japan. When I return to Tokyo I would certainly go again. Food was cooked to perfection, chicken was very tender and moist.

Place looked promising, we got the traditional Japanese seating upstairs. Our server was great and it was fun to read the different types of pork that they served. The pork was crispy and the sauce wasn't anything special. The reason why I am giving a...More

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.

About 10-15min walk from harajuku station. You can take different route to get there, as it's not off the Takeshita dori. I would avoid going that way as it's too crowded- unless you want to tour through Takeshita dori on... More

Hi Ivy, Apologies for late response, didn't get notified! I can't remember exactly but probably no fish, chicken maybe... :) I think they do have prawn or seafood choices, very limited though.
