Restaurant details
Reviewed 24 February 2014

This is a very unassuming Japanese restaurant located in downtown Portland. The menu items are always fresh and the rice is just right. The decor is a bit dated and the piped music can be extremely annoying especially if the same old CD of Japanese bamboo flute music happens to be playing. If you are fortunate to be dining with company, it isn't too distracting from the amazing food offered up. In particular, I enjoyed the sweet cucumber which is served with drinks, fried squid, rainbow roll and spider roll. Everything is perfect when you are immersed in the delectable and fresh cuisine. Highly recommended.

This is a popular dinner spot on Congress Street, on of the busiest streets in the Portland area. The place itself is small, but it offers both indoor and outdoor seating depending on the season. Parking is extremely limited in this area, but the restaurant is withing walking distance of a few parking garages. It's also right at the beginning of the shopping district and has a lot of neat stores to visit!

The staff is small and consistent. They all greet you when you walk in, and the owner and chefs always thank you for visiting. The food is absolutely delicious and always fresh! It's all traditional japanese cuisine with some modern flare to perk up the flavor. They also offer mochi desserts if you're up for a bit of sweet after your meal.

This is a wonderful Japanese restaurant that I highly recommend!

Two of us- one had an uni shooter, one had an oyster shooter while waiting for sushi take-out. Oooweee! - delectable. Would've had another or two had budget been no object!

Food didn't even come close to being good Japanese quality dishes. Lang's Chineese put's this place to shame! Chineese or Japaneese?
