Surprising Find

We were looking for a Japanese restaurant between Clackamas and Vancouver. Found this place and decided to try it based on the reviews. Despite the outside appearance, we found the inside to be quaint. My daughters enjoyed the train that travels above the guests. The food was delicious and... read more

While living in Portland we went to Takahashi's many times. Like said in a review before me the outside is unattractive but get inside it is so cute and quant. We like to sit in the front and watch the action. On the table is the sushi list that you can check off what you want, also there is a... More

I used to eat here a couple times a month. Sometime last year, the prices went up as the rolls got smaller and smaller. One family member ate there yesterday--complained that the waitress was smug, the portions small and overpriced. He's not planning to return because he had the same experience last month. I want this place to succeed. I... More

The freshness of the sushi is evident in the taste. The dinners are served with several small side dishes including miso soup, pickled vegetables and hot potatoes in broth. My companion doesn't like seafood, so ordered the chicken which was cooked perfectly. We also ordered vegetable tempura which was lightly battered and crispy. The inside of the restaurant belies the... More

This is a rustic-style Japanese restaurant in the unlikely location of a small strip of businesses on Holgate Boulevard. Don't let the somewhat run-down exterior put you off. This is the real thing - a Japanese country-style restaurant run by a Japanese-American family. Because it's country-style, there are more stewed vegetable, chicken and meat dishes than maki rolls. We are... More

We ordered sushi, tempura, etc. All are good and with above average freshness - perhaps this was because it was Wednesday (the restaurant is closed every Monday and Tuesday). The sushi was much fresher when we visited last year. We continued to look for the combination dinner - inexpensive, good ingredient and great portion - a combination of teriyaki beef,... More

I've never been disappointed in the 21 years that I've been going there. My entire extended family (many of whom live or have visited Japan) agrees that it's the most authentic Japanese restaurant in Portland! Delicious sushi, friendly waitresses, and great service!

Joined a group for a birthday celebration here recently. It was my first time, and I was impressed! Shared a rainbow roll as an appetizer, was a little spendy but ingredients were all very fresh. Had the teriyaki special dinner for my main course; came with miso soup, cucumber salad, yakisoba, fried or steamed rice, 6 California rolls and the... More

Step into Takahashi and feel whisked away to another time and country. Packed with a horder's dream of random Japanese collectables, a family-run Japanese kitchen, and plenty of seating, this place is always delightful and the sushi is excellent. Also the prices cannot be beat.

My husband did some on-line research on Portland restaurants for our recent vacation to Oregon and came across Takahashi, which had gotten good reviews, so we decided to try it. Don't let its location in a modest little strip center deter you (if we hadn't read the great reviews, we might have kept on driving when we saw the outside).... More
