    I am a regular at Saboten. The food is great and the service staff are attentive. I would not return so many times if the service was bad.

    This is in the public section Level 3 of terminal 1. You can't get there from transit area.

    Delicious, quality breaded pork loin and pairs extremely well with the shredded cabbage. Value for money. Should work on their service though!

    I always trust their tonkatsu items. And always ask for extra servings of shredded cabbage.

    I normally don't care for cabbage salad, but for some reason, the shredded cabbage here has a very fresh taste, no 'rawness' like the usual cabbage

    Favourite place for tonkatsu. And a good place to be when oysters are in season.

    Have eaten here twice. Reasonable value but a great meal with all you can eat sides and sauces. Great miso, tonkatsu pork and sesame flavours.

    Ask for the bill once you get your food... Coz the whole process of paying with a card could last longer than your meal (which happened to me)
