Very nice food, albeit a food court setting, and sans waiting service. The price of food at Hong Kong Airport is stupendous. Just thanking god that it was delicious.

The pork cutlet is a must try...soft and tender and the mixture between pork and egg aroma is just wonderful

A very popular joint in HK airport...try to visit this place everytime we transit thru or after check in. The Tonkatsu is excellent. Go for the classic tenderloin rather than some other prawn variation... they also serve Asahi on tap!. Can't have deep fried food...More

Needing a meal before our overnight flight, we followed the 'rave reviews ' of this restaurant and were not disappointed. It's the first time my wife and I have eaten this Japanese-style food and we really enjoyed it. We would echo all the positive reviews...More
