If you've ever had tonkatsu outside of Japan, this is the place to try the real deal. On the recommendation of my trusty Lonely Planet guidebook, we wandered into Maisen after doing the Omotesando Avenue walk. Arriving before 12:00pm, there were about 5 people in...More

Delicious deep fried pork dish and other pork meals. We came during new year’s holiday lunch hour so the line was long. The price will be higher than most restaurant due to higher standards of the pork.

For all the positive reviews of this Maisen restaurant, I simply cannot understand the appeal. After waiting about 15min for a table on a Saturday afternoon for lunch, my husband and I both ordered the ‘famous’ pork cutlet. He got the more expensive Aged Cutlet,...More

Great food and a wonderful atmosphere! I had the katsu pork curry and it was the best katsu I’ve had in a long time.

there was a bit of a queue but lucky they have a take away kiosk outside that sells sandwiches - so i had a starter while waiting in line. probably best to go off-peak meal hours - but business is brisk and people don't linger...More

There’s a little takeaway store and I couldn’t help but to buy the sandwich. So huge chunk of juicy meat! I had the second and third piece the next morning and it still tastes good!!! I’m sure dining in the shop would be even better...More

This Honten location of Tonkatsu Maisen was recommended to me by a close friend. It did not disappoint! It turned out to be a short walk from Salon Nalu, where my children were getting their hair done, in trendy Omotesando. The tonkatsu was simply amazing--so...More

One of the best Hirekatsu I've had anywhere. Outside crisp, meat tender and juicy, almost melts in your mouth. They also have some special cuts that they only sell in this restaurant. We had an late lunch/early dinner around 4:30 and they were already sold...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
