This was my 3rd and 4th times having dinner at Syun Izakaya. I was introduced to the place in 2012 and since then it is undoubtedly best restaurant in Hillsboro, period. On my first visit this time, I had Miso Soup (which was ok'ish) and Boston Bay seafood roll (made spicy) - roll is highly recommended. On the second visit,... More

Love the pork belly and soba noodles. Get a series of appetizers and just keep them coming. They are not really too expensive if you don't do too many sake flights. Everything is very good quality. The only negative thing I could say about them is the front room is too loud to talk if it is full. Get a... More

This is a tiny place, but my boyfriend and I have never had a hard time getting a place to sit, even when we went on Valentines Day. All the items I've had have been delicious and the service is great. I enjoy the atmosphere, but because of the small size some people may not. Friendly staff. Full bar and... More

Everything we tried was excellent. They even squeezed us in on a night that clearly we should have had reservations. The shrimp in the tempura were cooked to perfection and brilliant flavor profiles on everything we had. We did not try any sushi which is what they are known for but I will try that another time. The only thing... More

The menu is well rounded with offerings for all tastebuds. The flavor of each ingredient shines through. Go for the clams with sake or the grilled options. If you want great Japanese food beyond sushi, this is the place to be. There is always a set kitchen and sushi option that features the local ingredients that week. They take reservations... More

In the basement of a former school house, sits a charming little "pub",japanese style.The shelves are lined with the previously full Sake bottles, with those still full,waiting to be sampled. This is the place for sushi! But...if you are not into that, there are many other choices. The food is excellent and beautifully presented. We have ordered from the dinner... More

The restaurant is built in the basement of what looks like used to be a home. small place, cozy atmosphere. As close to a small Japanese Club as I've seen (not full of smoke as it would be in Japan though). Food is fairly authentic, but a bit pricy. Good sushi, but not the best I've had in Hillsboro. When... More

My wife and I have found a new favorite Sushi place! The food is absolutely amazing! They have a wide variety of foods, not just sushi. Although if you bring your non sushi friend, (or spouse) to eat there, they will become a sushi lover. The food is that good. We enjoyed our meal on the outside patio area. The... More
