I tried their bento box and YUM! It had plenty to go in it as well. It was a nice place to try out with a few friends for lunch, plus it's right off of 23rd Ave! I'll be coming back here

Groupon brought me here . Calamari appetizer deep fried, thick pieces a bit tough with a basic mayonnaise dip with a hint of garlic. Ok, $5.95. Teriyaki Salmon bento box with nice tempers. Bland Japanese fried rice, so so salad, salmon tasty, small piece. Had to ask for wasabi mustard and pickled radish, WTHey? And the large $7 house sake... More

Below average service from the waiter, the waitress was about average, and the 2 chef's behind the counter were very good. They made some excellent tasting (and looking) sushi, and were also able to recommend me some different types to try based on how 'fishy' I like things. Nothing special or fancy about the decor, but they food was very... More

Friends and I had lunch at Wild Wasabe on a bright, October, Friday afternoon. The place was very clean, and the menu was extensive and appeared very authentic. One of the members of our party has lived in Japan for several years, and he was impressed. I had the lunch combo #1 which consisted of six nigiri and six slices... More

I liked the look of Wild Wasabi at first sight. It just rang true - which can't be said of other sushi bars in this area of Portland. We went in, received a friendly welcome and were seated at the bar in full view of the sushi chefs. I ordered 5 different Nigiri. Spot on. The following day we returned.... More

After a tough day, it was nice to go to a place with quiet atmosphere and friendly servers.... and not one flinch about using the Groupon. But the real surprise was the portion size. No joke... it was filling, and when it comes to sushi, it's hard for me to get filled up. It's elegantly prepared and beautifully presented, which... More

After a day of the Japanese Garden (about a mile away) and a happy surprise of Taiko Drums in the park (free concert) we decided on sushi for dinner. Trip advisor lead us to this cosy neighborhood restaurant. Wonderful food. Friendly staff. Good price. Would eat here again in a heart beat.

We had dinner at Wild Wasabi while visiting Portland. We had gyoza, California rolls, and chicken teriyaki and everything tasted great. We each selected the teriyaki 'hot plate' and were very surprised at the portion size, about twice as much as we get at our usual Japanese restaurant. Prices were very good, especially for the portion size.

Used a Groupon...I feel like this place is a little hidden gem towards the industrial side of NW 23 and would be more popular if it was on 23 closer to say Glisan and not competing with 3 other sushi places within a mile of each other. I will continue to come back the service is great...mistake on the beer... More

I visited this place twice in one week. The interior is very inviting and warm. The service was great. I only had sushi, but it was great -- very flavorful and tasted very fresh. And can't beat the prices during the happy hour. They also serve excellent green tea!
