    Really delicious katsu (we had the pork and prawn). Last time I had katsu was on a vacation to Japan and this was just as delicious! Plus reasonable prices.

    Pork is very delicious! Definitely a must even if you are not really fond of it.

    Good value lunch sets, but for some reason I felt it was not as good as the last time.

    $4 draft beer. Katsu menus and the self-grinding sauce reminded me of Saboten.

    Arrive before noon to avoid the rush. The standard lunch set (120g of pork loin I believe) is authentic katsu.

    The most authentic Japanese cutlet place I've ever visited in NYC. From the authentic taste to the free refill of rice and cabbages, everything is as just same as Tokyo.

    the curry katsu was delicious, but the portion of katsu to curry was severely lacking.

    The Katsu Donburis come with a huge portion of rice. Free refills of the accompanying miso soup too.

    Pricier than your average lunch, but you get high quality for the price. Other katsu places don't compare to their distinctively good food.

    Solid authentic tonkatsu. If Ootoya is an A, Katsu-Hama is a B.

    Try Age dashi tofu! It will change your perspective about the tofu forever. So yummy. The kurobuta katsu was just perfect. We all know they're famous for it.

    They've been doing amazing katsu for years. I've tried all the kinds on the menu and honest to god they're all great. Try the king salmon katsu. It's a little less traditional but damn it's delish.

    Berkshire pork comes with a huge piece of fat. Regular combo pork loin is better. I like to get the Oroshi special, comes with radish and ponzu for dipping. If you're a vegetarian, ask for tofu curry!

    Everything is clean and classy, from the decor to the food. More on the pricier side but well worth it.

    People come here for the katsu, but be sure to try the pork belly over rice. Delicious, melt in your mouth pork!

    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

    Perfect, crispy katsu pork. Hint: Grind up the sesame seeds with the wooden pestle then pour in the tonkatsu sauce.

    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.
