Katsu King @ K-Village, Bangkok

Cuisine: Japanese (Tonkatsu Specialist)
Price: THB300 per person without alcohal (what I paid for)
Visited: 2 January 2011
Food: 4/10
Atmosphere: 3/10
Value for money: 4/10
Service: 2/10
Overall: 3/10

Katsu King, one of the famous restaurant at K-Village, offers varieties of Japanese katsu dishes ranging from seafood to Berkshire pork and is popular for its homemade Katsu Curry. The setting of this restaurant is rather easy going and simple. Each katsu dish here goes really well with the special made tasty katsu sauce, which has to be combined with ground sesame.


In case a set meal is to be ordered, rice with side dishes and miso soup will be available. Each katsu dish will be served with chopped lettuce salad, which goes perfectly with sesame dressing.

Gyoza, a traditional Japanese dish, had tasty and juicy filling with crispy skin. However, the skin was a little thick and the filling was too little compared to the size of dumpling. Too normal and typical in my perspective (3/10).


The next dish was Katsu King's famous Rosu Katsu with Garlic (Black Pork or Berkshire Pork from Kuroda Farm). Berkshire pork is famous for its tenderness and juicy meat due to its fatty marble. Despite its real crisp batter, this dish was rather below my expectation (5/10).

Hire Miso Katsu (Nagoya Style Katsu) was crisp on the outside up to the standard of Katsu King. Strong miso sauce was thick and tasty, yet too salty (4/10).

Next inline was Premium Roll Pork Katsu (Fillings: Shiso & Ume, Fresh Wasabi, and 3 Cheeses being Cheddar, Cream, Mozzarella). While shiso & ume was sour in flavour, 3 cheeses were just non spectacular. The combination of tender pork with different fillings was creative, however, right of matching was doubtful (4/10).

The last to arrive for the meal was Yakiniku Don (Australian Grass-fed Beef). This well-known dish was famous for its rich flavour of sweet and salty. At Katsu King, beef was well marinated with sauce (despite too salty). Beef itself was not tender enough as it was overcooked. Rice was a little too soggy. Kimchee and pickles were normal (4/10).

Not accounting for its poor services, an intention for a revisit is perhaps not the option but a place for a quick meal with friends and family is ok. An overall of 3/10 is generously enough. I, personally, cannot find anything outstanding here.
