Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We lined up for 30 minutes and it was worth the wait! The Pork Katzu was amazing! Meat was tender and the the crumb was so crispy- best we have ever had! We got the lunch special and it was so much food. Highly recommend.

It was delicious and nice service, but I had to wait for 20mins to seat. The price is 1500yen with pork cutlet and rice, miso soup and salad. I think it’s cheap and deli

The staff were friendly and the lines moved quickly and the menu is both in English and Japanese. The food came very quickly for a restaurant of its size. The food was excellent the best tonkatsu in Tokyo! Definitely a must have in Tokyo.

Very nice restaurant in Omotesando, they serve tonkatsu. Also very cheap for the quality they serve and the place is really fancy. Really recommend it. You might want to come early because there is a bit of line

Delicious tonkotsu away from Shibuya without the queues. We waited for 15 minutes and ate at the counter with a great view of the chefs. Crunchy and juicy pork with rice, cabbage, miso and a selection of sweet or spicy sauce. We went for the...basic pork option although there are pricier cuts and breeds available for the pig-enthusiast. Served with a few delicious cold beers in frosted glasses. Very reasonable too- £30 for two with beers and soft drinks. If you are staying nearby then check it out, but it's about 25 min walk from Shibuya Scramble. Quiet surrounding area with galleries.More

This is the must-visit for Tonkatsu for each visit to Tokyo. The bread crumbs are just delightfully crispy and light and the pork always succulent. Each day, only a limited number of servings of some special pork are available, so it always pays to arrive...early while they’re still available. After the meal, the takeaway sandwiches also make for a nice snack later in the dayMore

I came at an odd time, late lunch/early dinner so there was no wait. Pork filet set - was very filling. The filet was good so well and the meat was tender. Green Tea highball - this was tasty. It had an even amount of...alcohol and green tea. 3 piece tonkatsu sandwich - such a simple dish, but still so tasty. The service was really good. It was one of my more expensive meals during my visit, but very well worth it.More

The Tonkatsu served with oysters were pretty good and tasty ! The quality of rice declined and that is a very important side dish in Japan . You increase the price of the dishes but do not try to save money on the rice .

Tonkatsu was delicious but it’s a bit expensive what i had was 4,000 yen and i personally think, with this price Tonkatsu must be good. For me, one time experience is enough i don’t think i would visit here again.

Tonkatsu Maisen Aoyama Honten is one of the most famous chain restaurants for Tonkatsu in Japan. We were impressed by their fried pork chop sandwich which was a collaboration with Family Mart a few years ago. The restaurant was located away from the main streets...and we even got lost while looking for it. The decor was modern with an open kitchen set up and the ambience was elegant. Their service was really authentic Japanese, polite and considerate. The options on the menu were various and we had a hard time making up our decisions. We ordered a classic pork chop set and a sashimi & pork chop combination. Their fried pork chop was super juicy inside with crispy & chunky layer. The best way to enjoy is dipping in the special sauce with white radish purée. The sashimi was okay but not special so we highly recommend to have their signature fried pork chop set.More

The beauty of Maisen's tonkatsu is in the way they fry pork in panko crumbs. Every bite is just juicy and delicious. Also I recommend getting Rosu because there's no fun in eating lean pork without fat!!

There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.

It may not be private for that many but there is a lot of seating for a party that big in the upstairs part of the restaurant. Definitely contact them because I thought I did see some private rooms.

No. I believe it’s first come first serve. There is a waiting seat out front.
