My friend's daughter's family goes here all the time and so I knew it had to be worth a try! <3 It was very slow in there and the food came slow, but we were in no rush. The wait was worth it: the sushi was well presented, very fresh & very tasty! I have to say it has been... More

My family waited for 1 & 1/2 hours for food, forget about my poor grandma's diner. Greeter wasn't friendly, didn't give small plates to share appetizers, asked for utensils, never see the waitress come back.

First time visit to this location since they moved a few months ago. We arrived about 12:15pm for lunch, my wife had the hot Bibim Bap which she thought was average, considering this is her favorite dish. I had the Bulgogi Bento box and this is my favorite. Service was slow, same person seating, serve and answer the phone for... More

Sushi rice was soggy/mushy with the maki super tiny, most tiny I have ever seen. Worst sushi I have ever had and I will even eat airport sushi! The chicken pad Thai was seasoned with red hot sauce. Seriously. The service was ok but overall I was severely disappointed. For the money I could have easily gone someplace more reputable.... More

The food was just awful except the fried dumplings were delicious. But the spring rolls although perfectly rolled were flavorless. The pad Thai was inedible the sauce tasted like ketchup with brown sugar in it. The teriyaki was absolutely flavorless. I could go on with the rest but it was a heart wrenching meal. They seem so nice but I... More

We ate at Nara last night July 8,2016 for the first time since they moved to their new location. The food was even better than we remembered. Try the OMG roll, the Korean pancakes and the Seaweed salad! We have eaten sushi all over Portland and we consider Nara the best place in town. I'm not sure why the other... More

We arrived at 1:30 for lunch to be greeted with "We close at 2:30". I should have left then. The avocado was not ripe for the avocado salad and covered in a sticky sweet sauce. The sweet potato roll was covered in thai chili sauce. The bill was 50 bucks and I couldnt get water or any of the other... More

A couple of childhood friends and I get together every other month or so and choose restaurants in So. Portland as it is a central meeting spot for all of us. We thought we would give a sushi restaurant a try and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere is nice - with good music playing in the background. Good wine... More

We have visited Nara a number times in the past and were very disappointed on this visit. The quality of food seems to have gone down greatly as the quality of the sushi did not seem to be of top quality. The Sake was rather tough and the size of the individual pieces of nigiri was rather small as compared... More

Came here for dinner with a couple of friends and had a great time and the food was good but overall wasn't too impressed with the serving staff. They were not very attentive and didn't give water until we asked, and then didn't fill the glasses once empty. But the food was very good and everything tasted great! they have... More
