Daily: 11:00 - 23:00
Cosy comfort reminiscent of casual eateries in Japan. Decor is minimal but effective in creating a clean-cut look. Serves authentic tonkatsu from various cuts of high quality pork and seafood.

Tonkichi is definitely one of my favourite places to go for tonkatsu! It is the only Tonkatsu specialty chain restaurant in Singapore. I love how their katsu is very thick and lean unlike most places where the meat is sliced thinly and you can't feel any shiokness while eating it. I went there on a Friday evening to celebrate a friend's birthday. We arrived at around 6.30pm and there was no queue. By 7, there was a queue formed and the waiting time could be quite long so do go early to secure a seat or make a reservation!
Mentaiko Kasane Katsu $29.90
I love drenching the shredded cabbage with the seaweed sauce (idk what it is called). So good!! The Mentaiko Katsu was a disappointment though. It was not the least bit spicy and halfway through, it felt a little "jelat".
Cheese Kasane Katsu $29.90
I love this! The melted cheese went well with the pork loin. It was very filling and satisfying.
My friend found that it was average only. For me, I like the soup base of my ramen to be rich and thick so this is not my type of ramen.
Chicken Katsu Toji $26.90
Friend's. I tried the egg and it was quite tasty. I will probably order this the next time I visit there.
Chicken Katsu Curry $24.90
This is the ideal dish for lovers of Japanese curry! The curry is placed in a separate serving bowl so you pour your desired amount onto your dish. This set comes with a salad side.
It is a really unforgetable experice to come here for my meal, since I have stayed in Japan for around 3 years, as a foreigner, I love it when I was in Japan. When I come to Singapore passing by this restaurant, I can't help coming inside for the tonnkatsu. I ordered とんかつセット 、inside with 茶碗蒸し. It is really delicious with full sause. I will never forget this kind of nice taste,especially for the 茶碗蒸し, so nice. I hope to enjoy it again.
This is the same Tonkichi as the one in Takashimaya but the quality is indeed different. First, the salad dressing is diluted, making the cabbage inedible. Secondly, there was no quality control on the frying of the rosu. It was just hard and dry. What was supposed to be a quiet birthday dinner for two became a disaster. Utterly disappointed.
Would never come back here again. Will only go back to the outlet in Takashimaya.
