When I visit Portland and I'm craving sushi I come here. The size of the sushi are way bigger than the normal. Quality is really good and tastes delicious! Just be prepared to wait because it can get extremely busy.

Saburo's sushi is quite good considering the price. Their salmon, smoked salmon, and ahi nigiri were great [two per serving] as was the creamy scallop [2 per serving]. Their rolls are large and the fish is very fresh. It was difficult not to order many choices as the menu is large as the sushi. I will definitely go back again.... More

From the outside, Saburo's doesn't look like much - a small, brightly-lit place in a strip-mall. Until you notice the line outside - and there's ALWAYS a line outside. Because this is hands-down THE place for sushi in Portland. Big portions, great prices, quick service, and DELICIOUS and FRESH. They don't take reservations so plan to wait (there's a pool... More

I've never been here when I didn't have to wait at LEAST 30 minutes. Yesterday we came 20 mins before opening and there was already a line around the building! Thankfully we were able to get in with the first wave, got our order in quickly and got our first delicious hot, deep-fried roll within minutes...but then waited over an... More

Would really recommend Saburo's Sushi House if you happen to be around here. They start at 4.30pm but even 45 mins before opening the queue line is already almost into the car park area. As my daughter experienced a >2 hour wait during earlier visit - we made sure we were there before 3.30 n got 1st in line. Food... More

The Mid week wait for 2 people was short. Luckily my friend had been here before and knew that the portions were large so we were careful not to order too much. We ordered 5 items (2 sashimi and 3 rolls) and still had leftovers even after opting to scoot the rice filler aside. The dishes were beautiful and tasty... More

I am back after two years and the sushi here is amazing. There is a waitline to get in but the food is so good. Service is excellent even though they have limited staff. If you love sushi, this is a must visit.

We had a birthday party at Saburo's one very rainy night. Party of 8 only took about 20 minutes to seat. I had the yakisoba which was mediocre. The rest of the table had sushi, which they raved about. The highlight though was the endless bottles of pink sake.

Long wait. Hey it was Portland on a Saturday night. Big sign on the door said cash only. Many people failed to see it. Staff was stressed and crazy busy. Hostess/waitress was abrupt but not rude. We waited about 30-40 minutes for a table. You order with a dry erase marker on the menu. Make sure you put the number... More
