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.
The chicken katsu was delicious!
The Katsu Curry Udon is insanely good! Must-have.
Awesome chicken and rice. The miso soup is great 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.
I love coming here for lunch. Katsu is very good. I also like the daikon salad.
solid katsu, order from the specials menu
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.
Katsu 120, unlimited miso soup!
Order the hire katsu Don & Jidori Karaage
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.
We had some delicious and well presented food here, much recommended.
Get the Kurobuta Katsu Curry - Berkshire pork loin cutlet served with rice and topped with curry sauce.
Pork katsu curry special. So good.
Come here early if heading for the take-out window. The #1 and pork katsu curry special run out quickly.
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.
Perfect, crispy katsu pork. Hint: Grind up the sesame seeds with the wooden pestle then pour in the tonkatsu sauce.
Amazing katsu. Very authentic.
just fyi, they don't serve sushi here. good katsu, 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.
Best Pork Katsu UNF. $12 lunch special is all to feed you for the rest of the day. Oh and their rice is amazing.
You never thought plain white rice could ever be this good.
the hype is real, the $12 lunch a steal
Their sister restaurant Menchanko-Tei (ramen) is nearby on 45th and Lex
Better than momoya & ootoya
Large cheap beers!
AH katsu done right. Pork cutlet curry, bottomless shredded cabbage salad. Great lunch place.
Very very good
The best Katsu. Ever. They lost the unrelated lunch to-go counter and classed up the spot.
Great katsudon and curry katsu.
Good katsu here. Skip crab croquette or shrimp and go for the porks :) Go for the kurobuta if you want to go the extra mile.
Pork Katsu Curry is the way to go!
Try the Pork Belly
It was one of the best meal in NY for Asain food, the price is reasonable and go early, otherwise full very soon in 10 mins..
