When I vacationed further north, I looked forward to eating here on my way home back when a sushi place in Portland was a weird idea. It never disappointed. When I went there yesterday, the spinach appetizer was good, but the sushi itself tasted kind of tired. The rice was dry and the fish was l little less than fresh.... More

Too early. We have 'chanced our arm' each evening, with success, mainly. Having studied a few menus and walked on... More

We have eaten at Sapporo many times over an extended period. We have always been pleased. Usually we sit at the sushi bar and have found the service to be better than sitting as a group at a table. We had tuna tataki and a couple of rolls. The Maine lobster roll was terrific and the jalapeño roll was quite... More

This is all around one of my favorite restaurants to visit in Portland. In fact, it used to a tradition for my husband and myself to come every Sunday for lunch. Their deals are hard to beat! During the lunch special, we've paid 20 bucks for both of us to get full of great quality sushi! However we are more... More

Opens 12 pm . Nicely priced for some of the best sushi and sashimi. Great menu selection. Courteous service and clean comfortable setting. Outdoor seating in season and off-street free parking on side of building. Authentic preparation for those in the know.

We have eaten here several times, and, the quality of the food is outstanding. Service is quite good too, and, if this cuisine is in your sight line, be sure to visit. Prices are reasonable, and it is one of our favorites in this area.
