Good Sushi/Sashimi

Famished after running the Portland Marathon, my friends and I found Sakura close to our hotel. We all love sushi and were pleased with the quality of the fish and the service.

There are other conveyor belt sushi places in town that are good when all you want is quick and cheap stomach fillers but for really good salmon and tuna nigiri and spicy rolls I go straight here. Large slabs of salmon that almost melt in your mouth are on the $1.95 plates and the well-filled sashimi plates are not much... More

I'm extremely selective with my sushi and I reject most places in town as garbage. I have about ten places I will visit, most very expense (and not often.) This is the ONE sushi-go-round that gets my business. I've long-shirked the cheapo sushi in favor of a "great sushi or nothing" mindset. I absolutely hate fishy-tasting seafood. For some reason...

My daughter had a hankering for sushi at lunchtime so our son took us here, and we were very glad we did. The restaurant was set up in a sushi boat fashion, and everything, but everything was mouthwatering, fresh and delicious! It was a little chilly in the restaurant, but at this time of year, the downtown of any major... More

Like the conveyor belt concept, here the sushi comes on a train which my kids loved. Otherwise, the sushi is ok at best, we ordered one item off the train (yellow tail hand-roll......the fish was dark red....never seen yellow tail like that) and the place smelled a little odd. Very nice staff, had cold sake and was very inexpensive. If... More

This is right up the street from the Hotel Monaco, which made it very convenient for an impromptu evening meal. One of our party had never been to a rotating sushi bar, and he must have eaten seven plates' worth...would definitely recommend!

We have many great kaitensushi in Japan and also a couple in NY. We did not have a huge expectations on this place (did not look very authentic and we were right) but we were too tired to look for more. Compared with those in Japan and New York, the quality and variety were just not comparable. Pieces were small,... More

We just finished a most enjoyable Sunday lunch. Convenient location near Pioneer Square downtown. Two blocks from the MAX. We stumbled onto happy hour, open at noon on Sunday. By 1:15, the place is packed. I'd recommend planning to be there by 12:30. This is a very reasonably priced sushi house with fresh delicious varieties and pleasant chefs. My wife... More

Fresh ingredients, quite a bit selections, central location, normal sushi taste. We caught the happy hours, and very good price, $30 for two people, 11 plates and two Saporo beer. The only issue is that they may use too much mayo or something taste creamy.

Sushi Sakura was next to our hotel and our niece traveling with us had never had Sushi so we decided to check it out. I had only seen a Sushi Train on TV food shows. It was really interesting to experience. The only problem was we could not easily identify which rolls or food was going by us. I was... More
