    Took awhile for someone to take our order. Spicy tuna roll is ACTUAL TUNA with spicy sauce, not the chopped up scraps it usually is!

    Don't not come here. Do come here. Eat everything, every time. Come here every day and order everything on the menu. Eat all of it and regret nothing.

    I travel for a living, and have eaten sushi in Japan, and Okinawa Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Houston... This was a better experience. Awesome time. Great wait staff. Chefs were helpful.

    You MUST have the spicy scallops, allergic to scallops, then ask for the sauce on tuna. I Bento Box it weekly & ask for 'Chefs Choice' for my sushi, 50% of the time u get something interesting.

    Spicy scallop roll IS tasty, but didn't expect it to be drowning in a ton of mayonnaise. Scrape some off before enjoying.

    Sit outside on the garden patio and watch the birds play in the fountain. Friendly service, fair prices and a huge selection of rolls and sashimi. Try the avocado salad and the Yosaku roll.

    Excellent value and great service! Try the lunchtime bento box and enjoy it on the sunny garden patio. Try out the Yosaku roll and the caterpillar. Avocado salad and sweet potato roll for vegetarians.

    No extra charge to make that spicy tuna roll crunchy, unlike some places in town. Favorite place around.

    Try ponzu sauce with your sashimi, much lighter than soy sauce and really enhances the delicate fish flavor

    Try the avocado salad! Even if you don't like avocado the dressing is worth trying.

    Favorite sushi place in Portland...except the last time I had Udon Noodle Soup, the flavor was lacking...however you cannot go wrong with any rolls or the sashimi!
