I came here with my daughter for lunch on the advice of TripAdvisor. We are so glad we came. The food was incredibly fresh and the pork was made to perfection! Superb service. We were both very happy after the meal.

Spacious clean ambience, it's a two floor restaurant. Lots of customers but we felt we had our comfortable privacy. The lunch set including pork and shrimp was great, but the special premium black pig thick cut was something else. Loved the little grooved bowls and...More

We came for an early dinner, having read reviews of queues and got in straight away. The Tonkotsu was great, as was the chicken. There’s an English menu and the staff were very helpful

This restaurant was recommend by both Trip Advisor and a Kumamoto friend to us. The three of us enjoyed a ¥1300 set meal of delicious tender crunchy tonkatsu, miso soup, rice, pickles and compulsory shredded cabbage. It was delicious. 100% recommended to fellow travellers.

The best Tonkatsu I ever have. Make sure you order the premuim pork. Very juicy. English menu is available and coffee is complimentary.

Katsuretsutei is a famous Tonkatsu restaurant in Kumamoto, and therefore it is quite crowded. As we went there, we first took a number and waited about 40 minutes. But anyway it is worth. Their Tonkatsu is delicious, but it is really voluminous.

Together with my friend we wanted to have a nice dinner after coming from the rainy Aso caldera. We checked out few places but decided on this one. And we were not disappointed. The staff is very kind and we got the table right away....More

Good place for a bite to eat. Famous for its pork and its nice and tender. They do have an english menu so you can order. You get to make your own sauce for the pork.
