Ramen
We are proud to open our first location outside of Japan. Reasons abound for us to introduce our style of ramen to the Rose City, however Portland offered us something no other US city could. Soft water, from a pure source, within close proximity.

Much like Mt. Hood, Afuri mountain in Japan has long been revered as a sacred place of harvest; the unique geography creates ideal spring water, perfect for ramen making.

Portland’s ecosystem produces a nearly identical water (ppm22-25), which combined with a bounty from local farmers and producers, allows us to create the highest quality ramen and Japanese cuisine available.

Perfect meal as always. Service was great and covid precautions were obvious but didnt detract from the ambiance or welcoming feel.

With all of the COVID restrictions most doors were open, which made it very chilly. Totally understand and want to be sure all restaurants + businesses are following, but a heads up would be great, so we could dress appropriately. Food was amazing as always! Love Afuri!

It was incredibly cold and not very comfortable. It would have been nice to know ahead of time. I completely understand with COVID however is was less than enjoyable with a $170 tab to boot.

Generally an amazing spot HOWEVER we reserved indoor seating because we thought we would be seated indoors! And although we were they have the huge garage doors open for circulation. I totally understand and can even appreciate the safety measures they’re taking but there WAS NO FOR-WARNING! So my bf and I got there dressed to sit in a temperate room, not to be freezing cold. We ended up getting our food to go and had a quick appetizer while we waited.

This is completarla unacceptable. There should be some sort of warning on here when you book. And the host told us we missed it (and was very uppity and rude) that it was on the info section here but it was NOT.

We won’t be back until after COVID.

I was so pleased with my recent lunch at Afuri. Multiple doors were open for ventilation. The host explained the mask policy and the next occupied table was probably 20+ feet away. It was so nice to enjoy exceptional food in the restaurant and to feel safe. Thank you!

Food was top notch, but some favorites (miso soup, edamame, California roll) were not on the menu. I understand that it may be beneath a fancy place to feature such common items, and I didn't think much of such elitism.

Ramen was great, but not the best we've tasted.

Afuri did a great job in terms of COVID prevention (distancing, ventilation, mask policy). However, they seemed to overdo it with the distancing requirement for outside tables. All the 4 outside tables should have been available, I believe.

The host came out after we were done eating to tell us to move our car because it was too loud and the exhaust was coming in to the restaurant...? We were just sitting in the car for less than five minutes... just SITTING THERE with the engine running after we ate there deciding where to go and they tell us to leave? Such a rude, weird experience. I’ll never go back because of that.

Consistently excellent food, good variety of dishes to choose from (while not being unwieldly or overwhelming), and each dish has its own twist.

I've been there twice and cannot think of one negative thing to say. The staff is amazingly welcoming, friendly and professional. They're attentive and helpful.

Then there's the food. Everything is superb and prepared perfectly, especially the ramen dishes.

Love this restaurant and will definitely return. They’re doing a great job serving their customers during this season of Covid-19. It’s a little chilly inside because they need to keep the doors open, but ramen is the ticket for a cold evening! And they have the best around!

Waiter wasn’t the best...ordered a bottle of wine and he brought the wrong one. Then when he brought the correct one, he dropped it off without uncorking, so we had to ask for him to bring a corkscrew.

Food was good but came out super inconsistent. Got most of the food within the first 15 mins but waited over an hour for the ramen which caused issues with the reservation time limits with covid. Ramen came and tasted definitely different than in previous times I have been, not sure they can handle all of the to go orders with those in the restaurant.

Ramen bowl was really bland the noodle dish was really good and the roll didn't have much flavor. They were incredibly slammed with takeout order so might have had something to do with it. The service was great and it's a nice soace. Won't try again though .

Fantastic food and enjoyed the time there - had opportunity to sit inside (no issues as they had the doors open for ventilation and minimal capacity seating). We enjoyed the subtle spice and flavor nuance in everything, including the carrots. Didn't take a picture of the ramen but had some from our apps.

We arrived at our scheduled time and were informed of the precautions they had taken and in turn the realistic expectations they had of us. They have done an excellent job of spacing and frankly I enjoyed the entire experience from service to cocktails to food.
Thanks for staying open.

Great food! Have been 2x now and have enjoyed every item we've ordered. Only issue that seems to be consistent is that the temperature in the restaurant is not comfortable. It's very warm and then you start eating ramen and it gets warmer. The AC kicked on after we were done eating. Dress in layers!

Excellent ramen! Went with large group & the ramen broth was thick & truly delicious. The veg options are great. Amazing beet salad. The add-ins were fine but not stand-out - the egg in my ramen was cold. Better than most other ramen places that I’ve been to.
