“Probably the best Katsu on Earth!”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

This place rocks! The quality of the beef in the filet katsu is unreal. All the dishes are very good, but that one is just sublime.
The setting is very nice for a lunch with family or friends. Quaint, countryside Japanese eatery.
The pickles that are served automatically are also of a very high standard.
Just a wonderful place!

“You probably will not regret skipping Matsuyama Castle for this.”
Reviewed 22 August 2010

They servce no fancy talks, no fake smiles, but they do serve probably the best class Tonkatsu (Deep Fried Pork) in the world.They use the best class pork from the local farm and they know how to deep fry. (Tonkatsu is an adopted Western dish to Japan but has long enough history to have developed Japanese unique way of doing it.) This is the depth of Japanese dish which European ranking dude will never even notice because there is no stylish entrance and porsh wine list here. With the range of JPY1000-1500, you can find out what I mean by the "depth of Japanese dish". By the way, this shop is 5 min walk from the castle.
