    Try the Green Tea Ice Cream - After a big meal of katsu curry, you just want one scoop of something sweet. This is perfect.

    In a rush? You can get Katsu to go! Hot dishes are pre-cooked and re-heated via microwave, though.

    Weekly ritual to pick up a bento box for lunch here from the pick up window. Sit in meals are great, too – it is Katsu heaven! ESP love the Salmon Teriyaki, Chicken Nan Ban, Seafood Katsu.

    I had Snow Crab Cream Croquette. It was good, but just a bit too creamy—may not be able to have more than 3 pieces for me.

    I tried the chicken katsu for dinner which was okay. The rice didn't taste very fresh. Service is pretty quick. I liked the attention and the green ice tea.

    Though this authentic tonkatsu-ya has branched out in the last couple of years, you're crazy to order anything not made with one of their imported-from-Virginia pork cutlets, either fatty or lean. Read more
