We passed by this restaurant a day earlier at dinner time and noticed a long queue waiting outside so we went to another place on the same floor. We went again to this restaurant next day after the normal lunch time and was surprised by the good service and food provided. The waiters were very helpful and advised us on the types of sauces on the table and also how to grind the sesame seeds. The food was very good and the meat tender. Refills for rice and cabbage salad were provided.
We recommend this restaurant for the food and service provided.

We enjoyed this place a lot. It's on the 11th floor of the Isetan department store food court, immediately adjoining the Kyoto Station. Crispy delicious Tonkatsu - I had the Premium Pork Tenderloin, ¥ 2.100 my wife the Shrimp Set, ¥1.600.There are also some very good lunch deals for around ¥1.500. Recommend.

We all love tonkatsu. Katsukura delivered to our highest expectation with medium price t We had it in both Umeda(Osaka) and Kyoto(the cube). You can have it with just salt or their dipping sauce with sesame. The pork goes very well with both. Unlimited rice pickles and salad if you order a set menu. Their salad dressing is so refreshing.

We stayed near shin-Osaka station so we just took the bullet train to Kyoto for dinner. So convenient.

Great little place for good pork tenderloin. The highlight of the meal is crushing your own roasted sesame seeds with a pestle to which you can add table sauce to make your own pork sauce. SO GOOD!!

It's a little hard to find, but with some persistence, you'll make it to floor 11 and be able to connect to the CUBE (by elevator... or take several consecutive outdoor escalators visible from the main lobby floor level of the station up to floor 11... Beware, it can be chilly in winter since the escalators are outside.) The name of the restaurant is listed in English on the directory of restaurants once in the CUBE.

Prices are reasonable... About 25 dollars for 2 people to eat (and your meal will come with unlimited miso and rice). The downside is that everyone (locals and tourists) thinks this place is really great, so even at lunch there can be long lines out the door. The upside is that there are chairs to sit on outside the restaurant and the line moves pretty fast!
