Go for the burger!

The burger rules over the Japanese and sushi at this restaurant. A friend told me I had to try this burger and was confused at the offerings, but glad I did. It's not everyday that you can savor a great burger, followed by some good sushi. While I didn't find the sushi to be exceptional, the burger... read more

We went as a group and were seated in the private room. We tried a selection of dishes, the kale salad was amazing, not to be missed. Make sure to order multiple things, we loved the cod, the mushrooms, the sushi rolls, the tofu, etc. The kids had fun with their special menu and also tried some of the grown... More

I was looking for a Japanese restaurant near the airport in Portland Oregon. Wanted to have a great meal before our flight back east. I fortunately stumbled upon Yakuza. The menu was really interesting, and had several of the tuna specialties including the tartare, the tuna roll, and several of the sushi rolls. The food was really excellent, well-prepared, and...

My daughter and her girlfriend took us here when we visited Portland. A fun menu with lots of small plates - think of it sort of like tapas or dim sum. I would categorize the food as Asian fusion, but I'm no expert. By the end of the night we had each ordered 3 plates. We ordered one at a... More

We saw the burger on a food show special and it looked great so we decided to drive from Seattle to Portland just to try it. The restaurant has a great atmosphere. We sampled a few items off the menu and all were fantastic but when that burger arrived there was a lot of moaning and groaning with the first... More

We met family here for burgers and it did not disappoint. Their regular burger prepared normally is very tasty. I would return again on our next visit to Portland.

We went here for an event, our party was approximately 12 people. We had the back room which was very nice. A very cool hipster ambiance, service was also good. We had a kale salad, jicama salad, fennel salad, ribs, tartare, tuna rolls, salmon rolls, carpaccio, and Yakuza burgers. The food was most excellent. The drink selection was also pretty... More

Got there at opening, a party of 3. They were not sure they could seat us, (not sure why the place had one other party already seated, the place was empty). They sat us at the high table in the window, we were hungry and grateful. The food is good, fennel salad, the avocado salad, the steak tartar portion was... More

I went with a girlfriend who had.been here a year ago. They have changed their menu, fewer items and a lot less interesting selection. The pricing is ridiculous compared to the quality and quantity of what you get. We arrived at 4:58pm and with all the doors open, we walked right in and were rudely told it would be a... More
