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 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

Been here twice - once 3 years ago, once last night. Both spectacular food. Lots of small plates, good service, cool ambiance with picnic style tables.

My wife and I went to Yakuza with another couple. We were handed menus and proceeded to look through. As we were getting ready to order, the waitress finally mentions that this is small plates restaurant and that they recommend eating family style. That would have been great to know when we had received the menus. Maybe it said so... More

We were greeted & seated immediately for happy hour, & then waited over 10 minutes for our waitress to give us menus. There were only two other couples in the lounge & they were together. Our waitress spent most of her time chatting with other staff members. I had the $12 burger & my husband had kale salad & a... More

This garage door opens up type of place is always busy with couples & groups drinking, chatting & enjoying designer sushi. It is fun, with some great murals on the walls & unique japanese food. We went for a birthday celebration & the food felt celebratory, as did the special sake we enjoyed, but the noise level was completely out... More
