    I'm so glad I walked by here. The "Dry" Curry is amazing! Never tasted anything like that in my life. The Berkshire Pork Katsu Curry is one of the best Katsus I've had. I wish I lived closer.

    This place has got some great dishes! Get something with the fried pork! Cash only!

    Has lost its authenticity and quality when the place has changed the owner or maybe chef. The price compared to its quality is non sense now.

    The seaweed salad is great. The classic Japanese seafood curry was excellent but the shrimp and scallops were a bit tough. If you REALLY like spicy, Go for hot.

    this is some of the best japanese curry i've had in nyc. i like the tiny, luncheonette layout of the place. more of a pricier, slow-cooking, vaguely french approach to japanese curry than is typical.

    Pork cutlet is a must try. So are the baked curries. Go solo if you don't want to wait too long. I can usually find a spot to squeeze in.

    Among the nine curry options, we like the one with a crisp-fried Berkshire-pork cutlet best; the hamburger curry is also terrific, if not as easy on the eyes.

    For the baked curry dish, the sauce is poured over a bed of rice and topped with an organic egg and cheddar cheese, merging multiple comfort food stars for a profoundly satisfying meal. Read more
