This is for Capitol Hil location. Big Plenty of choices. The pork was so juicy & thick, the beef was falavorful & moist too. I like they have Jones sodas on fountain! Fast, reasonable, filling and not greasy. Yummy

I don't like giving low scoring reviews when service was so good... ... and friendly. I went thinking, can't go wrong with deep fried pork... but I ended up disappointed. I suppose it's more Hawaiian, but still can't consider it good. If you are going to get a burger, go get a burger at a burger joint. If you want... More

My daughters and I all had chicken katsu burgers, the Samurai Select and the Tokyo Classic. All were huge and so absolutely delicious. We couldn't imagine eating a beef burger deep fried so it's nice that you can choose between beef, chicken, pork or tofu. We loved the curry fries and dipping sauces. Jones soda fountain? Why yes! Fun place... More

Asian flavors in the burgers and executed well so can't complain. Burgers priced appropriately but the sides and drinks were overpriced.

On my plate: the ninja - deep fried, breaded pork, topped with cheddar, shredded cabbage, red onion, tomato, pickles and sriracha instead of the normal mayo (since I do not like mayo). Alongside the burger, I had a side of nori fries with nori ranch dipping sauce and wasabi coleslaw that had edamame. Flavour: Burger- juicy and thick but not... More

Great burger with a twist. It's deep fried! The shoestring fries come in many varieties and dipping sauces. A flavor explosion.

Probably the best Japanese burger I've ever ate. But then again, I've only eaten this one. And I intend to do so for now and all eternity for all that I care! Ninja curry samurai wabi-wasabi Godzilla - yes please.

Delicious, fresh and unusual. Fresh ground, antibiotic free, no hormones and raised here in the Pacific north west. The burgers are unusual and really good. Japanese influenced, deep fried but NOT greasy. Light and juicy. Nori fries crisp and yummy. Gingerbread shake thick and full of nutmeg flavor. A total yes, for us. Eat inside or out.

Katsu Burgers are one of a kind. Deep fried Japanese style. My favorite is the Godzilla one that has jalapeños on it. It's GINORMOUSLY delicious. Very small limited seating area so picked your table first and then order. Everything is made to order so make sure you're not in a hurry. The fries are served with Japanese mayo and you... More

Katsu is a little burger joint just outside of Pioneer Square area. The burgers were great. The options are overwhelming, there are so many fry options and dipping sauces.
