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.
At Tonkichi, food isn't just something fried up and slapped on the table. Instead, they are properly handled and cooked to perfection each time you dine there. My love for Tonkichi, is its constant taste and wide variety of meat cutlets. From chicken to fish, Tonkichi always has the taste suited to your palete. Another one of their signature dishes are their curry dishes which are much milder than the Singapore curries but its something that I'm sure kids would love. This makes Tonkichi all the more, a much more favorable dining experience for both me and my family. However, their slow service and lack of seats could be improved but this can be overlooked if you dine in the afternoon, where the place is less crowded. Overall, Tonkichi is definitely the place to go to experience the authentic taste of Japanese local foods without having to leave junior with the babysitter!
This restaurant is located on the 3rd floor of Shaw House.
They serve Tonkatsu and other deep-fried items. The tonkatsu include different cuts of meat, such as the pork loin and tenderloin. There's also fried oyster which I love and always order.
They have sets available, so its easy to order.
Rice and sliced cabbage is free-flow.
The only Tonkatsu specialty chained restaurant in Singapore, Tonkichi bills itself as a cosy restaurant in reminiscent of the causal eateries in Japan. With the soft yellow lighting, the restaurant is a stark contrast from the nearby brightly-lit Japanese department store, Isetan. From the positive raving reviews about their Original Tonkatsu, I was skeptical about the quality and authentic of their Japanese food. I decided to try for myself to see if it is really one of the best Tonkatsu restaurant in Singapore.
