Finally tried this little gem of a restaurant nestled in the North Portland. We were a little apprehensive as there were no other customers in the restaurant when we arrived, however our worries were quickly dispelled when our food arrived. We ordered a couple entrees (teriyaki chicken and spicy chicken) and a couple sashimi and sushi platters. Everything was very... More

We went to this place on a groupon. There are many choices of rolls, nigiri, and Korean BBQ. Everything we had was delicious. The sushi rice was amazing. They use wasabi on the rice giving each piece the perfect hint of flavor. The teriyaki was delicious and their veggies are awesome. Our server was a friendly and helpful young man.... More

I love Sushi. I'm a vegetarian and so it is always phenomenal to find interesting vegetarian sushi. This place went well beyond avocado rolls. I had interesting tofu rolls, and one with mango in it that was delightfully sweet. Really good stuff and reasonably priced, for sushi!

A cute little hideaway in N Portland off Rosa Pkwy is a little Japanese restaurant. I had the Teriyaki Chicken with salad & rice and sauteed vegetables along with Tempera Shrimp & vegetables. Our server (Rachael) was very attentive, brought sake & beer and extra sauces and made sure we were very happy. We'll be going back again for Happy... More

I've hesitated to write this review, because I really do want to see a "mom and pop" small business thrive, and I like having a sushi restaurant in my neighborhood. However, I've had so many not-great experiences here that I'm compelled to share that this is really not a great option for what you pay. Here is my balanced assessment:... More

We have visited this restaurant quite a few times. Some of the time its good and were happy, other times obviously not so much. Sad to say this time left quite a bit to be desired. We arrived during "Happy Hour" which actually is pretty much a joke (only about .50 off a few rolls). Water was brought promptly and... More

Had another dinner here with 4 family members. Two live here, 2 live in Tucson, I live in SE Washington State. All of us have travelled extensively in the U.S. and abroad. All of us agree this is included on our list of very good Japanese restaurants. Nothing fancy, just good food; however two weren't real happy with their miso... More

Whenever we want a treat, we head to this small sushi restaurant in North Portland. The ambience is a cut above typical sushi restaurant -- it's small, quiet, art on the walls, friendly staff, sushi chef behind the counter, with a sushi bar to sit at as well as several small tables. We go for the rolls, and we experiment... More

I have been coming here for quite some time. The food is always good, and fresh. Large selection of specialty rolls, and they have the soy wraps which is a plus for the hubby. I got the spicy tuna roll, very good. We also tried the combo plate with chicken teriyaki and veggie tempura. We also got the shrimp tempura.... More
