Located on 11F. Look for the never ending escalators in the cube. The pork tenderloin was tender and really tasty. We also enjoyed making our own dipping sauce by grinding down the sesame seeds and mixing them with the sauces provided. The vegetable miso soup that comes with the meal was really good.

As promised, this was as good of Tonkatsu as they come. We tried both the regular and 'Zen' Loins (more fat, more delicious-ness), served on a metal rack to preserve crispness with bottomless Miso soup, tea and barley rice. This place lets one grind their own toasted sesame seeds and customize their dipping sauce ranging from the sweet house sauce, spicy and sour which are all great. With a lively atmosphere, the prices for this quality and location are excellent and the wait in line more than worth it.

The pork is crispy and the sauces were good. The atmosphere is casual and price wise, its ok. We both selected different pork type from the menu - a tenderloin and a loin. Conclusion is tenderloin is the best but the loin is done not too bad either. All in, it was an enjoyable meal! Will go there again, when I'm in Kyoto!

We went here for dinner as we were in the area and quite a few reviews mentioned the great vegetarian options. However there was just a small vegetable crocket and a smaller potato crocket on the menu... Both were OK, but there’s better and more interesting things out there.

My friend had the pork tenderloin, and this was ok as well but nothing amazing. And same for the drinks actually.

Read good reviews so we did a walk in and was greeted and seated under 5 mins.

We knew exactly what we were here for and ordered quickly and relaxed, hot tea was brought immediately and meal not far from there.

All food cooked at your table and was fast and fresh.

Can't say enough over the Service and price.
