I ordered the Bento meal. For some reason, I'm at a stage (or age) 🤣 where I can't exacty finish the whole set meal and have refills. Sa cabbage pa lang busog na ko..
Still the best Katsu for me.

Yabu was the first katsu restaurant to open its doors in Manila. Many have followed in suit, but none as successful as Yabu. They have many branches spread across the metro, giving a whole range of people a chance to sample their food.

My fiancé and I spent the day at SM North and we finally decided to have dinner at Yabu. We have kept coming back for years because of their modern interiors, good service, and of course, the food. We have a habit of either eating a late lunch and/or early dinner to avoid the crowd. This time was no exception, so we were immediately seated.

We wasted no time ordering the mozarella katsu sticks, which we loved during our previous visit. Mozarella cheese covered in breading with a slightly spicy sauce. If you haven't tried this yet, you really must! Crave worthy!

I ordered my favorite menchi katsu set (no curry this time). I love how the cheese gives an added saltiness and moisture to the katsu. The more cheese the better, right? My fiance, on the other hand, prefers the Hire Katsu which is just pork tenderloin with breading. He dips it in the sauce and proceeds to eat about 3 cups of rice. He also grabs a few of my menchi katsu, because I need help finishing my order. We love the food and we appreciate the great quality control they have between branches. Servers are very attentive and quick in all of the branches we have visited (about 4 branches in total). You have to respect how they have maintained their operations thru the years. Still excellent!128077🏻

My friends and i ate here for dinner. the order took 20 minutes but it was worth the wait, the staff were very accommodating and they were eager to provide the best service. I ordered the chicken katsu 120g. it came with soup, rice and fruits. The food was good, but i found a piece of hair on the rice. forgivable but i hope next time they will be more careful and sanitary.

will i eat here again?

yes.

I YABU, Yabu! The Mozzarella sticks are the best! The Katsu was superb! Plus the good bonus were refillable fruit, veggies, white & brown rice, Miso soup and dips! I suddenly fell in love with you Yabu! Definitely not my last.

After all this time, you'd think that getting a table at Yabu would be easier 128517 No such luck, lines are still long specially during peak hours...

When we finally got a table & was handed the menu, we noticed that there were new items 128064 Yay! We opted to try out this 128070🏼Crispy Ebi Aioli @380 - crispy battered shrimp coated with aioli sauce & served with furikake chips 128076🏼 It was soooo good! Was impressed with the size of the shrimp 127844 & the crunchiness, it was deep fried perfectly & the aioli sauce also gave it an extra oomph!

I also ordered their Tori Menchi Katsu Set @390 - Ham and cheese enveloped in minced chicken, fried with fresh golden Panko breading... It came with unlimited white/brown rice, soup and cabbage salad. Since I love their salad dressing, I usually don't take rice, just refills of cabbage 128523

What I love about this place is the consistency, they know their Katsu & you really get your money's worth! Service is still pretty good too... It's also one of the few remaining places that has free service tea 128514 so yeah, I love Yabu!

Food was great but nothing spectacular. The staff were great. That visit was actually my 3rd time there. The first and 2nd visit, we were seated near the wall so we had no problem with the next table talking loudly and evesdropping to our conversation. The 3rd visit was the deal breaker. Not only did the people from the table beside us talked loudly and animatedly, they act like they were the only people there! I can't entirely blame them though. The tables were so very close to each other that if ever the people from the other table were whispering, we would still be able to hear them. Haaayyy, I love the food, and will be back only if I get seated perpendicularly on the wall.

Got their Menchi Katsu Curry set, should've gotten a plain Chicken Katsu Curry instead. The cheese doesn't go too well with the curry sauce. Nevertheless, excellent food and customer service, as always.
