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.

we came for our Japanese fix and I took charashi don set @40 and my hubby took tonjiru iron and tempura Mori. The food is generally decent as expected and service is good. chawanmushi is surprisingly yummy. the sashimi is fresh except for the white fish. Over all good.

The tofu salad gave me food poisoning :(

My boyfriend's katsu curry rice was fine. I really liked the service as they were super nice and prompt. The ambience of the restaurant is good too because it's quiet even though it's in Tampines Mall maybe because it's at a corner, and the seats are not placed really close together like they are in some restaurants, which is really irritating. The vibe is soothing, good if you wanna have proper conversations with your dinner-mates.

This was my third time to Tonkichi (other two times were at Millenia Walk & Liang Court) and no complaints. Till my choice to eat healthy yesterday bit me in the butt. The boyfriend's food was fine and he didn't have any problems later. There must have been something that'd gone bad in the tofu salad (but I couldn't tell when I was eating it) because an hour and a half to two hours later, I got badly queasy, almost threw up and only after a trip to the little girls' room did I feel better. Thankfully I hadn't finished the whole salad or it might have been worse.

Tonkichi please check the ingredients that went into the tofu salad and make sure they haven't gone bad!

Worse Dining Experience for a Japanese Restaurant

Visited the restaurant to have dinner after a show, order was taken by staff. While waiting, found it curious that staff did not provide the sesame powder for grinding to make the sauce; and no staff bothered to check on our orders despite having sat at the table for 20 minutes and having to personally enquire on the status of our orders to later find out that our orders wasn't even logged into the ordering system. For a Japanese restaurant that upkeeps service standards; not worthy of mention nor patronizing. Unacceptable service!
