We have seldom been disappointed at this place. We go back time and time again. Crispy tempura, excellent sushi and appetizers.

Four of us visited Kurata and we all were very pleased with the Japanese food. The presentation was beautiful, the food delicious and the service friendly. We ordered four different entrees…soba, pork tonkatsu, tempura, and salmon. The only, very minor, weak spot was the miso soup…a little weak on the miso. We will definitely return, often.

A small intimate place with good food - especially Hamachi Kama. This is a dish we try at every new Japanese restaurant and Kurata has one of the best. The tempura is light and crunchy and their salmon dinners very good. Also, very fresh sushi. If you like Japanese food you need to try Karata

Good sushi, not the best in Portland, but this place is not really worth is as the service is just abysmal.

We wish Kurata was open for lunch more often. It's a pleasure to find authentic Japanese food that doesn't depend on rolled up rice for presentation. However, the sushi is fine too.

Been here a couple of times, and will go back I'm sure. It's good, the people are nice enough, it's kinda generic no real flare, but it's always clean and close to home. I love sushi and Japanese cuisine, this just qualifies.

Great food, grumpy waitresses. We eat here regularly, because we like the food, however, the service people here are never as welcoming as it seems they should be. If you go to restaurants for atmosphere and experience, skip Kurata. If you're looking for good food at a slightly increased price, great place.

This small restaurant in Lake Oswego is really good. Fish is always fresh and the rice is perfect. Can get busy so make a reservation so you won't be disapointed.

This tiny place offers the best sushi in PDX. I have been to almost every other sushi joint in town and I always crave Kurata. Nice people and amazing fish!
