Beautiful ambience and outstanding pork tonkatsu! Definitely worth a visit when in Tokyo (Omotesando district)! Highly recommended!

The best tonkatsu you can find in Japan. I visited the Tokyo branch and was slightly disappointed that the fillet cut (supposedly the best cut) was out of stock, so I got the loin instead. The special sauce that came along with it was tangy...More

We visited the restaurant for lunch on Sunday. There was a queue but the restaurant has an efficient way of seating the customers. We hardly waited 10 minutes. The waiters and waitresses are equally efficient. Food was served relatively fast. We had their speciality, Amai-Yuwaku,...More

Based on the other reviews here, we decided to go to Maisen and I must say that we have not been disappointed. I can only echo the positive reviews even though I can’t really judge whether it is the best Konkatsu in town. It was...More

I’ve never really cared for tonkatsu (probably because I’ve never tried a place that specializes in tonkatsu), but this place totally blew my mind! The tonkatsu was so crisp yet moist and flavorful. The wait time wasn’t too bad either..we came on Sunday around 2pm...More

When I told my Japanese friend I wanted to eat Tonkatsu, she quickly replied with one word. Maisen. Coincidentally, my husband had also gotten a recommendation for this chain of tonkatsu restaurants too. This particular location is free standing and I saw the sign almost...More

You haven't had porkchop until you've had the Tonkatsu at Maisen. It's down a side street in Ura Hara, but there are signs directing you there from Omote Sando, just look for the yellow sign with a line drawn flower logo. The restaurant is surprisingly...More

Very good tonkatsu to take away from the outside shop. Reasonable price too - great for a snack and worth hunting out, a little way of the main Street - follow the signs with the logo on front the main Street to the shop /restaurant.

I didn't visit there over decade. Because I stop eating pigs. But I found they have Ebi fry and others. It's OK to visit solo. Quite. Free rice, cabbage, mugicha and tarutaru refill. By the way, I am not super avoiding pigs, though.

Heard a lot about Maisen's high quality Tonkatsu meals and it prompted us to pay a visit to this restaurant located in Shibuya, Being earlier was a blessing as there was a short queue inside the restaurant when we arrived. It later grew into a...More

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
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.

The lunch menu is the same price. I would definitely recommend getting some of the more premium cuts of meats to fully enjoy what this place has to offer! :)

About 10-15min walk from harajuku station. You can take different route to get there, as it's not off the Takeshita dori. I would avoid going that way as it's too crowded- unless you want to tour through Takeshita dori on... More
