Their Take Platter is a tremendous value of enough sushi rolls to satisfy four people. Pleasant service and ambiance.

On the recommendation of a hotel desk clerk, we tried Yosaku on a crazy busy Friday night in Portland. The wait for a table was long, so my daughter and I sat at the counter. There were two young men manning the counter doing everything...More

Nothing fancy just really fresh fish. A lot of different options. Recommend getting a boat because of the variety. Felt like a little corner of Japan. One of the more authentic Japanese places for sure.

This is a nice little Japanese restaurant on the fringe of the Old Port area. The service was good, if a little indifferent. I had a pan fried scallop dish with pork dumpling appetizer. The food was served promptly and was well prepared and delicious.

Excellent food and great service....made one small error on the bill but was corrected right away. Nice atmosphere , and quaint. Small parking area but manageable. It was worth the drive. I am very picky about my Japanese food and this place has my recommendation.

I love the food and the service. The fried pork cutlet is as good as any I've had in Japan. The pork dumplings are delicious as is the sushi. This is one of my favorite restaurants in Portland.

Hard to believe a japanese restaurant by the sea would be anything but wonderful, but this place is just average. Portland has lots of amazing restaurants, so maybe don't waste your time or money on a mediocre experiance.
