Now, don't think I don't love all the amazing fish I saw at Tsujiki. I have spent quite a few hours (and Yen) at many of the sushi restaurants in the Ginza and closer to Tsujiki. But, after a week or so, I found I wanted something different. Yabaton filled that need wonderfully. They have quite a menu full of... More

The restaurant was easy to find in the north part of Ginza. The atmosphere was good and they provided a menu for us in English. The food we had was average at best and a bit pricier for Tonkatsu (pork cutlet) than we had at other restaurants. The sauce was delicious but overall, it was pretty average food.

Yabaton had been recommended to me as a must-do which means high expectations - and Yabaton delivered ! The staff are cordial and the meals not unreasonably priced ($25-30AUD for a main). There was an adequate range of beers (possibly wines even !) so a lot of the ingredients for a great meal were in place. Its easy to find,... More

Had "hire miso katsu" (pork filet miso cutlet) as a dinner in September, 2015. Just as what I expected from "Yabaton" brand misokatsu that I've been used to enjoying it in Nagoya through the years. Restaurant atmosphere is good. Tastes the same from Nagoya recipe. The only minus is the location of the restaurant that may be hard to discover... More

This place was recommended by one of the locals in Tokyo. We saw no tourists (only locals) and that is always a big plus when dining somewhere. Both went for the black pork filet and it was delicious! My husband had a few more fatty/chewy pieces but mine was absolutely perfect. The atmosphere at this place is also nice and... More

Met with a friend for lunch at Yabaton. We tried the black pork with miso sauce and it tasted - right on. Very nice. Not particularly easy to find as it's off the main street. English menus are available but there's only 1 type of beer available.

Met a friend here for dinner shortly after landing in Tokyo, and their tonkatsu really hit the spot after a long flight. Prices were quite reasonable as well, which can be a rarity in Tokyo. Their tonkatsu was also a nice change of pace from the usual tonkatsu with curry. English menus are available.

Must try - Miso-flavoured Tonkatsu two ways. This is unique to Yabaton (originated from Nagoya) and is going to be one of the best pork katsu that you will ever have! Restaurant is right behind Mercure Hotel Ginza and is within easy access from Ginza Metro station. English menu available for those who cannot speak Japanese.

For those who are unfamiliar, tonkatsu is a breaded Japanese pork cutlet. I'm told that many people associate it with country home cooking. This restaurant has unique sauces on their version that are especially delicious. Although not high brow, the decor is fun and funky (pigs float in plastic bulbs, dangling from the ceiling on string), the staff was friendly,... More
