    Get the tonkatsu, pick which cut of pork you want, from fatty to lean. Pro-tip: you can ask them to give you curry even if your item does't come with it

    Delicious pork cutlet (katsu). I'd say one of the best. You'll have options on the breed of pork. From Kurobuta (Black Pig) to Chamiton who have green tea as part of their diet. Superb & tasty meat

    I also stop here for lunch for their famous katsu pork with rice and cabbage salad. Free refills on those. Last time i tried the croquettes and they were amazing. Must try!! Follow the signs.

    A great standard for comparison when it comes to Maisen. Fresh panko and a selection quality pork are what makes this place. Very fluffy yet crispy texture makes up the tonkatsu here. Worth a visit.

    Famous for the best pork tonkotsu in Tokyo. Worth the splurge to try the Kurobuta Pork (said to be the best 🐷 in the world)!

    This popular chain’s flagship specializes in tonkatsu—panko-breaded pork cutlet that’s fried golden and drizzled with an addictive sweet-tart sauce. Get the kurobuta (Berkshire pork).

    The standard tonkatsu is fabulous, but if you want any of their special cuts you need to get in early as they only make a few each day. Don't forget your cabbage refill.

    Authentic tonkatsu in a very cute and cosy restaurant. Kind service, decent prices, yummy food! Highly recommended!

    World-famous for tonkatsu (fried pork cutlet), this local favorite—housed in a former pre-World War II bathhouse—is hidden away in a back alley behind a busy Omotesando street.

    Ask to sit at the Japanese tables on level 1 if you can't sit at the bar. Much nicer ambience. Lunch set is well priced and tasty!

    Special tonkatsu made from specially curated pork types. Pricey but good experience, although you probably can get similar quality elsewhere for a cheaper price.

    We split a pork set and got small sides of pork belly and pickled veggies and it was plenty.

    authentic tonkatsu - not greasy at all! they have counter and table seating. table seats are placed in their main hall which has a high ceiling and a hanging grandfather clock.

    You want the pork, not the fish. Pork = round or cutlet-looking. Fish = fish sticks. Beware the fish sticks.

    Expect to wait in line for a seat. But the tonkatsu is worth it. They have English menus.

    Never oily, always crunchy and juicy deep fried pork cutlet is the main draw here. Choose from many types of pork as you please.

    Really good food. Long queue for the restaurant but if you just want to grab something on the fly the booth is a good alternative.

    Incredible restaurant for katsu, super friendly, great service. And the meal sets are actually a good value.

    Amaze katsu. The more expensive cuts of loin are worth it.

    Delicious meal. Ask for a counter seat if you're in a hurry and there is a wait.

    I ordered the mixed platter which came with shrimp, potato and pork katsu. It was crispy and not too oily which is good but the taste is nothing special

    Maisen is one of the most popular katsu places. Personally I prefer Butagumi in Azabu for fancy katsu.

    I ordered the mix platter and it was ok. Service was great. My friends all had a stomach ache from the pork though ...

    No reservations for lunch! Always a pit stop, but must also nicer/smaller hole-in-wall tonkatsu places around ginza-san! 🍛😆😁

    Splurge on the kurobuta set while you're here - the pork melts into your mouth after you bite into the light, crispy exterior.

    Definitely focus on the katsu. It's terrific. Avoid the set meals, as their kitchen isn't particularly good at making anything else.

    I think the katsudon is actually better than the full meal. Brings out the flavor more.

    Ask for table in the cool main hall (it used to be a public bath!) and because the tatami room doesn't have a 'drop down' area for your legs...
