Almost everything on the menu is katsu, mostly pork of different cuts and a few chicken selections. No place for vegetarians. The fact that almost every diner is Asian should be a testimony to the authenticity of the food. Choose the more fatty cuts of...More

Wonderful place with authentic Japanese ton-katsu. There's another katsuhama on 55th but that's more like a bar. This is a nicer place with better food (imo). Oishii!

We came here for dinner before getting to the sky panorama at Rockefeller Center. The eel katsu, vegetable kusi, Tuna salmon carpaccio were all delicious, served with steamed rice and the service was commendable. A lovely restaurant for a romantic night out.

This is one of our favorite Japanese katsu restaurants in NYC. Located on E. 47th, Katsu-hama's specialty is...you guessed it, Katsu! Try their Oroshi Free Range Chicken Katsu or their Oroshi Kurobuta Loin Katsu, and you won't be disappointed! Service is friendly and attentive, and...More

We had a jugs of beer which was probably the best thing we had here. We ate edamame, pork gyoza and spicy tonokotsu (like a ramen) all ok but nothing special.

Good affordable price for NYC. Average food but good service. I ordered fried chicken in Japanese style and didn't like it at all. The sauce was nice but chicken wasn't very good so hardly ate. My son had tonkatzu and he reckon it wasn't great....More

Yes, reviewers are correct that portions are small, however this is to be expected if you are going to an authentic Japanese restaurant. I found the portions to be on par with what katsu restaurants in Tokyo and Yokohama served. The unlimited salad with ginger...More

A staple of NYC Japanese cuisine for over 20 years now. Last visit, we got the curry soba katsu which uses a slightly less thick broth than the rice curry. It doesn't come with the unlimited cabbage so I would recommend sticking with the regular...More
