The tonkatsu was as good as what the other reviewers have unanimously said. The wait also needs to be accounted for so being there early is recommended. To not get on the old lady's angry side, I was ready with my order when she brought...More

The tonkatsu is great no doubt but there is only 6 seats in the store and waiting time cross over one and a half hour for around 15 people in front . The price quality ratio is impressive but I would think I prefer to...More

One of the best curry tonkatsu's I've had. The meat was tender without being greasy. The fried cutlet didnt taste like oil and was super crunchy. Rice was perfect. Nice and consistently fluffy. The curry was complex. It had spices and little bits of beef...More

Stumbled upon this restaurant while walking along the shore of the lake. Saw a queue at 1130am outside this shop. Decided to join in the queue. Worth waiting for the food. Generous portions. Value for money. Service was great. Would highly recommend this place.

Greta Tonkatsu (common Japanese fare), superb value, fast friendly service and very clean restaurant. Lovely view of the lake and not at all "chintzy" like some of the eateries around the area. Just good food at a good price cooked fresh.

Food: Really, really fresh tonkatsu. I think it is because the cutlets come from the butcher shop next door (probably the same owner). The lean cut is more expensive but my friend and I found the slightly fattier cut more tasty, particularly with a dash...More

A very small tonkatsu restaurant nestled between souvenir stores. The restaurant is located across the street from the boat docks at Lake Chuzenji in Nikko. It is very clean but only seats eight. If you frequent Japan fare, you will know that this is common....More
