delicious sushi in PortlandMy favorite sushi spot in Portland. Located on the 2nd floor off a street level entrance, the restaurant is attended to by a friendly and efficient staff. The Pearl Roll and Japonista are examples of the excellent food available. The quality and terrific flavors make this a most satisfying meal any day of the week. The second level location provide a treetop view of the sunset and natural light filtered for the open space and tranquil vibe accompanied by great, ambient music.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMRanks with the BestImpeccably fresh seafood. Some may say that the sushi is too complicated, but we say they are marvelous combinations of texture and flavor. Two of our favorites: Transformer and Japonista. The vegetable tempura makes a great starter and can easily be shared between two people. Great drinks; exhaustive sake menu. Great location in the up and coming West End.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's all in the detailsI've been twice, once for omakase at the sushi bar and once for their chirashi. Both were excellent experiences! The $50 per person omakase gives you a very personal dining experience with their head sushi chef who clearly takes his sushi seriously. Both hot and cold dishes were well executed. He even makes some of his own pickles (ginger flower?) with main ingredients from Japan! The chirashi last Saturday was an enormous bowl of goodness! In particular, I love how their rice is mixed with diced tamago, cucumber and ginger - shows it's not just an afterthought! It's all in the attention to detail that elevates the dining experience there5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSushi NoviceAs a novice to sushi (have had it, but do not feel comfortable ordering it just anywhere) this food was great.

We were sat at the sushi bar and it was a great experience.
The service is attentive and friendly. Everyone was helpful in making suggestions (drinks, sushi, etc.)when asked.
We had edamame, miso soup, and four sushi rolls -- all very tasty! I cannot recall the specific names of the rolls we ordered, but they were all delicious.
Overall, it was a great place to grab a late dinner.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
