Time Out says

This hidden gem of a restaurant looks like it’s stuck in the ’70s, from its location in a forgotten back-alley building and old-school interior to its surprisingly low prices. It specialises in cutlets – meat and vegetables breaded with panko and deep-fried.

The popular set meal, which comes with a chicken cutlet, ham cutlet and croquette plus rice, miso soup and shredded cabbage, is only ¥700 – it’s arguably the best-value meal in central Shibuya. Otherwise, you can pick and mix from 11 deep-fried options including chicken, pork, squid, horse mackerel and aubergine. A set meal of two cutlets is ¥700, three is ¥850 and four is ¥1,050. It’s good honest food at feel-good prices – you just have to look hard for it (tip: enter the narrow alley next to Shot coffee bar).
