I often follow the advice of fellow travellers, via TripAdvisor, when visiting a new place and I was not let down in Osaka. My hotel in Shinbiashi is a short walk from Dotonbori and this was a good place to dine on tonkatsu for the first time. In contrast to other places I have eaten this restaurant is tranquil and...

Absolutely delicious tonkatsu! Very juicy and tender. We walked straight in without lining up, as it was fairly quiet that night. Staff were lovely, menu & how to were in English, and although not the cheapest meal, we had more than enough to eat with the tonkatsu set meal. Almost spoiled other tonkatsu we had during the rest of our... More

Highly priced and super slow service. Loads of people cleared out but the line going in still hasn't moved. Upon going in to ask, I was told to go wait outside and that there's a queue. For the price and the service, I'm wondering if we would be better off eating at the opposite restaurant.

The place is a bit hard to find but definitely worth getting a wagyu katsu - it's different and tasty! Only downfall is the price.

Would recommend the cheese tonkatsu - it's pretty tasty and the set meal is decent value for money as well.

Kimukatsu own recipe The best part of the pork cutlet is, what texture of clothing that was also the crispy saying and juicy taste of pork. Only the delicious part of the carefully selected domestic pork loin (also referred to as the "millefeuille of meat") piled 25 sheets in the ultra-thin slices and fried to clothe the raw bread crumbs of special. As a unique cooking method, carefully 8 minutes fried at a low temperature of the oil, and steaming further vertical to to 2 minutes. This heat is transferred to the uniform by, it will be drawn for maximum flavor. Fluffy texture, accumulate gravy between one by one of pork became millefeuille like, a very juicy taste "Kimukatsu". Kimukatsu is deep-fried to order from us carefully one by one. The taste of Kimukatsu multiplied pains, please taste your slowly please. How to enjoy Kimukatsu Also choose from seven types of flavor is will tend to be lost, but also to taste the real thrill of "Kimukatsu" We recommend the "plane". (There is also platter where you can enjoy a variety of flavors you.) The source also we offer, but please enjoy and refreshing no other "special wholesale ponzu". And, please with us more favor "cooked fresh rice set" the charm of the Kimukatsu. The combination of juicy "Kimukatsu" and piping hot, shiny "cook fresh rice" is the strongest combination. The reason for issuing a cabbage in front of the "Kimukatsu" Shredded heaping cabbage has served before to enjoy the "Kimukatsu". Cabbage send for every day from domestic best of origin in accordance with the season, and crunchy, which was crisp, was in the "ultra-fine cut" so that you enjoy the freshness. The "vitamin U" that is included in the cabbage there is a work that will protect the mucous membrane of the stomach, will relieve the burden on the stomach when you eat fried food. Over a special dressing, delicious, please enjoy plenty shredded cabbage. All changes are free therefore do not hesitate to.
