I recently went to Ginza but was a bit disappointed. While the place was very clean- and warm on a winter day, the food was just fair. I ordered a special with Lobster and avocado and just wasn't very impressed. The tuna roll was also ok I left wondering if everything was a little less fresh -thus the "off taste".... More

Wonderful spot to enjoy hot pot. This maybe the only place where you can enjoy sushi as an appetizer and hot pot as your main meal. If you can't decide between Vietnamese and Japanese this is a place to go. The flavors were spot on and the ambience was great. Definitely worth the visit.

I've been to Ginza several times for lunch before and it was consuming their sweet potato roll that moved me to write this review. Those little sushi rounds are little bits of heaven. Everything I have tried here is really delicious. The pork gyoza (dumplings) are delicious and don't get me started on the chicken curry. Really quality food here... More

This hidden gem has a cult like following and for good reason. The food is outstanding, the prices can't be beat, and the owners are wonderful. I cannot recommend it enough.

I was introduced to Ginza Town back in the summer of 2014; it has become a regular haunt for me, as well as my colleagues and friends! They offer a variety of Vietnamese, Japanese, and Chinese dishes… Don’t let the location fool you, this is some of the best sushi I’ve had in Portland, and the overall experience is just... More

I like Ginza Town which is a small, unpretentious restaurant serving excellent sushi and other Japanese food as well as some Thai. The service is generally excellent but when we were there most recently they had a very large party which slowed the service down. I recommend Ginza Town.

Vietnamese, Japanese, and Chinese food to suit all interests. Best. Crab. Rangoons. Ever. Pho was really good, and all of us enjoyed our sushi. Don't bother with the miso soup but def. get pork goyza! We will be back.

I've tried them all in the area and this is my favorite. Their beef stew is also great but really spicy and I like hot food. Service is always great.
