    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

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

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

    Definitely get the Tokyo-X pork cutlets!! You wouldn't regret it! Compared to Tokyo-X, Kurobuta was not that impressive.

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

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

    La experiencia en si ya merece la pena. Tienen sitio en la planta de arriba pero es mejor comer en la barra. El tonkatsu básico está buenísimo (1.700¥) y los cócteles bien hechos. Recomendable 100%!!

    Подают японский вариант шницеля. Все очень вкусно и разнообразно, но в моем сознании шницель не соединяется с японской культурой. Тем не менее, в ресторане полным полно людей и это не туристы.
