It's so interesting to see the variation of experiences here. I've been a half dozen times and have always liked it and had a good experience. I met friends here mid-day on a weekend, for Yosaku's apparent brunch, which actually doesn't seem all that different...More

This place was okay but would not go back. I have had better Japanese food. We got: Pan Fried Dumplings- filling was bland. Normally can eat three servings of dumplings but did not even want to eat three of these. Potato Croquettes- really enjoyed these,...More

So, It was just ok, wouldn't go back but... We've had better sushi; this place wasn't bad. Server was great, avocado was lack luster and the building needs major updating (lights kept dimming and building wasn't appealing).

There was nothing even remotely special about the 4 different dishes we had last weekend. 3 sushi choices and a tempura. All tepid in delivery and taste. With all the other sushi choices in Portland I wonder what special circumstances would bring me back here???

We didnt expect that we will be happy after this Japanese meal. The food was great, server attentive and accommodating and the price was not expensive. The food presentation was unique. Seems they elevated it to an art. The Donburi was served in a box...More
