We ordered the premium pork cutlet with unlimited rice and cabbage. The pork was juicy; coated in a light and crispy layer. The sauces went great with it - definitely the best Tonkatsu we have ever had. We also had the large Prawn and that...More

This was one of the best meals we had in Japan. The tonkatsu was so juicy but cripsy on the outside and the sauce, which you mix yourself, was delicious. The venue is beautiful and service was friendly.

Returned to Katsukura in Teramachi after a 4-year absence and it was as good as I remembered and though slightly more expensive, it is a bargain. I opted for the pork loin tonkatsu which was moist with a crisp coating. The serving was generous and...More

Perhaps the restaurant has taken note of previous comments as we found the service to be efficient and friendly. The food was excellent too. Just one thing to note - the entrance is tiny so do t be confused by the restaurants either side!

Place looked great based on TripAdvisor and Google reviews so I decided to bite. The restaurant was advertised as the best katsu with an English menu. After walking by the place due to no English signs outside we backtracked to a katsu food display we...More

Do yourself a favour and order the tonkatsu pork. You can choose different grades of pork as well as creating your own sesame based sauce with a mortar and pestle. I love interactive meals and Katsukura does not disappoint! Other reviews mention questionable service, but...More

I like this chain restaurant. One of the better chain restaurant around. Quality is consistent and reliable. Service is ok.

Quite simply the best tonkatsu. Great service and at a very good price. Don't miss this if you're in Kyoto.

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.

Sometimes they have fried vegetable dishes, sometime fried yuba (tofu curd), seasonally fried oysters and croquettes (fried mashed potato balls - sometimes with meat). But it's not a restaurant that caters specifically to... More
