Japanese Katsu (deep fried pork loin) specialty restaurant that is one of the best in Singapore. The katsu’s come in 2 grades, premium and standard. The premium pork loin is more juicy but also more fatty. Personally I prefer the standard one which is less...fatty. There are different set menus with katsu with additional toppings or gravies eg. miso gravy, men taiko topping, cheese filling , curry gravy etc. Except for the cheese which was sub par due to poor cheese quality, the rest of the options are very good. There was a promotion of 2 pieces of oyster fry for $4 which was a good deal as the usual price is $18 for 5 pieces. For to katsu lovers, this is highly recommended !More

Tried the pork loin katsu and fried oysters at this place, and they were absolutely delicious! Though slightly on the pricey side, the taste made it worth every penny. If I ever crave tonkatsu again, I'll definitely be coming back for more.

The restaurant is casual. Food is somewhat tasty- I was expecting higher quality. The fried pork specialty was a little dry. Enjoy the hotpot pork, it’s much more juicy.

This is one of the best Tonkatsu / Japanese pork cutlet I taken so far in SG. I came one week ago and I am coming back for it again one week later. Every bite is perfectly crunchy on the outside and juicy on the...inside. It’s Premium pork loin cutlet is so juicy, meat so tender ( excellent with some fat) , perfect with truffle salt, yuzu salt and lemon that complement bring out the best of the cutlet. It’s unlimited serving of fresh cabbage with Jap sesame salad sauce goes so well with the cutlet, one bit of cutlet and one mouth of cabbage. I love it.More

Quite reasonable price. Liked the wide table layout. Waited for a while outside even though they have some empty seats but they work behind cleaning up tables. Free refill cabbage and sesame dressings. Rice as well. Very delightful service. The only disappointed thing is the...cutlet is so greasy. Hope they improve how to drain oil.More

As one of a few imakatsu chains, we tried this after sampling another outlet. We came for the fried oyster and it didn’t disappoint. Crispy, soft and tender within, it was a great accompaniment. The pork cutlet with cheese inside was a Long shot as...I wanted to try something a little different different. Unfortunately it felt a little gimicky as the cheese didn’t particularly add to the pork’s tender flavour. But the meat was still good and accompanying endless cabbage was enough to complete the meal. Next time I’ll probably stick to the plain pork tender cutlet, but all in all the meal was still enjoyable.More

Brought the family here for dinner on a Monday night. The kids obviously loved fried items and I found the tonkatsu here, though deep fried, but not greasy. They know their stuff here. Especially love the loin where there is a layer of fat. The...skin was crispy and the seafood version was fresh as well. Nice services provided. Good option for tonkatsu without going all the way to town for it!More

This is 1 of the WORST restaurant in Singapore I have encountered in term of service! 3rd May 2019 - It was a business lunch with my partner and just immediately we finished the last piece of meat, they quickly come to clear our table....I was still thinking they are so efficient. Then almost shortly they present us the bill and ask us to go off!!! We were so shock! I asked why they chasing us out, they casually says many people waiting outside, and we have to vacate our table for them, even after I pointed out there are 2-3 tables still not taken. The waitress just walk off. I felt so embarrassed in front of my business partner! When we went to pay, we saw another 2 tables empty and there was no Q at all! I asked again, why chase us when nobody is Queing, again, the male waiter casually said, there was a Q but they are gone now. OMG, this is the kind of service they have in Singapore. Even in Fast Food restaurant, they don't chase you out like that!! I hope the management will teach the staffs proper service! On the food, it was normal, the meat was very fatty & oily to our liking, not sure it was suppose to be this way, but those we had in Japan was not like that. The refillable tea was almost like plain ice water and they dont refill until you called out for them. Likewise for the cabbage. Again, lacking of service here! Will bring my $$ to eat elsewhere next time!More

Went there with friends and order Mentaiko Tonkatsu. My friends got Mixed Tonkatsu and fried mochi cheese cutlet . They served shredded cabbage where we can mix with either the BBQ sauce or sesame sauce. Cabbage is very fresh and crunchy. Tonkastu were served with...rice, miso soup and few shreds of dried vegetables. Overall, the tonkatsu is delicious. Ambience wise, the noise level is very high so you have to talk loudly over the table.More

It was the day after national day. We decided to have dinner out and went out to star vista to eat our dinner. We headed straight for this place. It was not very crowded. The wait staff showed us to our seats, presented us with...2 menus and very soon came back with a big bowl of fine shredded lettuce. This was free flow and there was both sesame and plum sauce dressing. I tried the eel rice bowl. It came with onsen egg and small bowl of soup. My wife had grilled fish sticks with a bowl of rice. She told me that both the lettuce and rice are free flow. Service was very friendly and prompt. Ice water/warm water is provided free. This is great as some places charge unreasonable rates for plain drinking water in Singapore. We thought the restaurant was very relaxing. It became quite crowded as more diners came in, but it for have that crowded feel. The noise and voice level is also well managed. Somehow the layout and the high ceiling helped. Tables are well spaced and there is good privacy and distances. The offrring of food is quite similar to Saboten, but the feel and mood is quite different as it's more relaxing atmosphere.More

Visited this place twice for business. It’s nice but I find it overpriced. If it wasn’t for a business meal, I won’t come here. Everything is fried here.

I had lunch in their newly opened branch located at the new Tanjong Pagar Center, next to many other restos. I recommend the hire katsu set meal. It comes with a fairly good sized breaded pork cutlet. Meat cut is leaner, less fat so it...is healthier, but more expensive than the regular rosu katsu. The meal also includes miso soup, shredded cabbage and other condiments like mustard and sweet katsu sauce with sesame seeds. I've had better cuts of meat, but this is not bad.More

Went for dinner , restaurant still under staff, only two staffs around, restaurant almost full, it's the same situations from our first visit. Waiting to be seated takes quite a while. After taken our orders, the staff went off , very busy. We were not...serve our food, while another table next to ours were quickly served. Question the service staffs, no reply. Foods is reasonable and on the high side, but service up to today very unsatisfactory. Will not return.More
