Although I am a very picky eater, I went to Katsu-Hama with my cousin and loved it! The food was good, and the waiters were friendly. I advise everyone to go!

We have been to Katsuhama several times and my wife first took me there to show me what good tonkatsu was. That was a couple of years ago. Tonight we went again and we were horrified to discover that the quality has drastically changed. The tonkatsu sauce was watered down! The famous tonkatsu was greasy with batter that was too thick and it seemed like the oil was old and smelly. The only thing that tasted fresh was the cabbage! I 've had better tonkatsu in the East Village bars that are half the price! What happened? Did they get new management? We will not be returning.

They got great katsu specially lunch menu. Very good price too. But I don't recommend anything else there. Nor service or environment. If you be there just have great katsu plate, I definetely recommend.

Great lunch spot. I work nearby and grab two rolls (tuna and california) for only 5 bucks at lunch at least once a week. Not sure why it got 3 dollar signs for price because it is pretty cheap in my book.

I've always loved this place since discovering it a couple years ago. Lately though, perhaps due to the popularity, two things have gotten worse. First, the portions have gotten smaller, and they're very stingy about giving you more rice/cabbage/etc. Second, there's is a waiter who can be rude. What they should do is open a second location in a cheaper area rent-wise and hire better service people.

I'm a real guy - a guy's guy - and I had the 'ladies choice' set! It is soooooo awsome. I felt a little funny asking for the ladies choice set since I'm a man, but my dining partner said 'go for it, babe' and boy oh boy am I glad I did!

Every once in a while I as well as my Japanese colleagues crave for Tonkatsu served at this restaurant and that's when a bunch of us go there. You may find tonkatsu at many Japanese restaurants in the city, but real quality tonkatsu can be found here only. Panko (bread crumb) they use is specially designed and made just for them and the pork they use is best possible quality and cut perfectly for tonkatsu. I know it is deep fried, but all you have to do is order a half size and to start with shredded cabbage with yummy original dressing like salad which is pure fibers that helps digest oily food and cleanse the system. Enjoy!
