“On my top five list for Portland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

This place is a standout among the many fine choices in Portland for Japanese food and sushi. I am a frequent visitor here for a number of reasons. It's a well run place. Most of the key staff has been there for the seven years I have been a customer. The food is great and the menu extends well beyond standard Japanese offerings. Service is consistently professional and gracious. Finally the outdoor dining in the summer is a great spot to be.

“Delicious.”

One of my favorite sushi spots in Portland. The service is always super quick and friendly, and the food is always fresh and delicious. LOVE IT. Get the Yosaku roll!

“Great food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

My husband and I are not big sushi eaters, but we absolutely love Yosaku. They have many delicious options even for non-raw fish eaters like us. We particularly like the house salad, miso soup, fried green tea ice cream, steamed dumplings and fried vegetables. The California and tofu rolls are also excellent. The service is always friendly and efficient. We particularly like eating lunch on the outdoor patio during the summer. One of our favorite places in Portland!

“Great Sushi and other Japanese dishes.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Yosaku is a great place. They have some of the best sushi around and the service is very friendly and helpful. I have know the owner for many years and have followed him from restaurant to restaurant until he bought his own place. Yosaku is authentic and the fish is the freshest available. If it's not fresh and delicious you won't find it at Yosaku. Highly recommend.
