Enjoyed a great lunch here on a busy Saturday. Had the bento box special, it was really filling and tasty. Perfect for a hot summer day.

Had their lunch special today. A mix of sushi and sashimi plate. Ingredients are fresh and also had a taste of the local shipyard brew pale ale. Location is perfect along the wharf.

From North Conway we scooted to the coast with Sushi in mind. We were successful. The food was fresh and we had a great lunch. Service was really good and our server nailed it. We ordered quite a bit and she didn't write a thing...More

As always, an impressive Japanese restaurant. The waitstaff are very friendly. The food is always fresh, hot or cold depending on the dish. I could eat here everyday, if I lived in Portland.

It's a bit hard to rate this place, but I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. First, it was pretty clear that our waitress had no real idea about what Japanese food is and that she was there because she was offered the job....More

It was a good mix of seafood and other offerings. I had the chicken katsu. I've had it in other places and the dipping sauce is overly salty. This was good. We had chicken skewers as an appetizer and they were excellent as well. The...More
