This place was adorable.

Katsu - I ordered Rosu Regular (198 pesos) I was amazed in my first bite I can't explain the feeling AHHHHH. I can only say YUMMY 128077128077128077128077.

Cabbage - was OK 128077128077 as normal vegetable. But the bomb 128163 was the sesame dressings perfect combination with cabbage. 128077128077128077128077.

Service - The waitress here was friendly and super duper nice 128077128077128077128077128077 even the manager was friendly too. They have a time to entertain thier guests.

Keep it up guys 128512128512128512128512 I will definitely back here to try thier Ramen and gyoza.

I would only be rating this specific type of food in their menu but this isnt for the whole menu

we ordered the katsu sushi roll and okonomiyaki and gyoza

Im not a fan of gyoza but theirs was okay

I super duper loved their katsu sushi roll with all the crunchiness with it. And the taste... Mmm

It also went well with their okonomiyaki but it wasnt the best okonomiyaki ive tasted it tasted good with sesame sauce

Overall was very happy that dinner time. And i would definitely go back for the katsu sushi and the okonomiyaki together

And this time id skip the katsu and rice sets

My family and I went here for dinner and we dine here quite often so we opted to try other stuff rather than just order our regulars.

I was a tad (bit of an understatement) heartbroken cause they didn't have Unagi then so goodbye Unagi Katsu for me. 128148 But they sure made up for their other menu items. 128525

Their California Maki was absolutely divine! It was simple, non-pretentious but super duper amazing! It was definitely a must-try as recommended to me by my BF, Josh G! 128536128536128536 Thanks dear for the heads up. He dined with us too that night and he managed to convince my parents to try new things too. 128077🏼

My mom tried their Ramen and it was delicious! It would definitely give Ramen Nagi just around the corner a run for their money. 128522 And the portion size was reasonable and not super gigantic like in other ramen places. 128516

I had the Mixed Katsu Set D and it is definitely also one of the best choices in the place. It's like the mother of all katsu surf-and-turfs! 128516

I can't wait to fly back to Manila to enjoy these babies again! 1008410084100841008410084

I had the Meal Set C. Composed of Black Prawns, Hire and Dory(?).

What i like about eating in a Japanese restaurant is the unlimited Miso Soup!

For me, Ginza Bairin is better than Yabu when it comes to seafood dishes. That's why i always order the seafood set or just plain seafood.

And the price is not bad, considering most of the food that is on the tray is unlimited.

The california maki is a must-try!!! Besides the usual order of a katsu set, adding an order of the california maki will complete your dinner needs. I cant stress enough how good the maki is.

A few friends and I came here for lunch and we were their first customers of the day. The resto still smelled like lysol lol we all ordered the chicken katsu set meal. It came up to around P300+. Their miso soup was good. The shredded cabbage was fucking incredible lol (What do they do that makes it taste so uncabbage-like?) The chicken katsu on the other hand was just...okay. It tastes like something ready made from the supermarket 128530 so, I don't think it was worth the price. Servers were attentive though.

ALSO, a baby cockroach landed on my neck from the ceiling while I was eating...which gives you an idea of how clean this branch is. Luckily, I'm not afraid of bugs but, I'm not coming back again.

My son Latrell Joshua L 13th bday celebration part 4. Bday dinner at Ginza Bairin treat from his dad.
Sobrang lahat resto sa UP Town puno thats why we end up here.

The waitress recommend their specialty Special Katsudon meal set so hubby and i got it while for the kids they had the Katsu set. Price range is 300-400 pesos. Comes with drink and unli rice128077

One of the best and sulit Katsudon I've tasted. Fast service too

PS: sarap nung cabbage ba yun then deep it sa parang mayonaise na lasang peanut butter

Compared to other Katsu restaurants I this this has the best katsu sauce. I order mixed set of pork and shrimp. The shrimp was too soft. Felt like I was eating fat. Shrimp is my favorite so O was kinda disappointed but the pork was good.

It's already 9pm on a Sunday and the resto is still full. Had to wait around 40 minutes for our turn. Our stomach was already growling!!! This better be worth it!!

And so it did 128522 one of our orders was special katsudon, part was hiro so it was tender and dont have fats. The sauce was overflowing, perfect for us since we brought our 3yo son with us and he only eat food with sauce. So this was 5 star.

For the other orders like rosu sets and seafood set was ordinary and a bit dry. The curry was good though! I love cheese so menchi with cheese on curry sauce was great! One rice is really aint enough.

For these kinds of restaurant, my favorite is still kimukatsu for the most tender, juicy and flavorful tonkatsu 9786

Had this for lunch yesterday as it was full in all the other restos we wanted to go to in UP Town. I got a chicken katsu set because I like chicken.

I really wasn't expecting anything except I know that this place is from Japan and it's bound to be at least okay. Plus whenever I'm in UP Town, this place is almost always empty. I was pleasantly surprised! It was delicious!

Anyway the set is not different from all the other katsu places, the cabbage dressing tasted the same but the cold tea was kinda watered down. Prices are about the same, maybe a bit cheaper but not by a lot.

Service isn't that bad but can still be improved.

Their prawns are crazy fresh today! And cooked so well, it was like eating butter 128561

Sayang this place looks a little run-down na. It was dark and the menus have seen better days.

I told myself a few months ago that i wasnt going to eat here anymore (see previous review), but im glad i gave it another shot.
