Hidden away in a strip mall....but much nicer is this restaurant. Very small area for seating....get there early. We ordered the Tempura Vegies, which was light and very tasty. Sake was also very good. Speak Japanese for smiles and enjoy the food.

This is one lovely Japanese restaurant in Portland area. It is quite a small restaurant but the food is simply tasty and the service is excellent. The sushi is very fresh and the non-sushi dishes are very tasty as well.

There are only two places for sushi in Lake Oswego, Kurata and Sinju. Both are excellent. I like Kurata as it's prepared by a Japanese couple who are a delight. The place is small, but the food is superb!

Kruata is consistently an outstanding sushi restaurant, and even better it's located in the heart of the village of Lake Oswego. From the full dinners to the nigiri and rolls, every item is delicious. We've been eating at Murata since they opened @ 7 years ago and it still remains one of our favorite sushi spots.

This is a very small place, a few tables and a counter, run by what I presumed to be a couple that really care about their restaurant. When we arrived it was full so we had to wait 15 minutes or so for a table but it was worth it. It is a very serene setting and the food was... More

This tiny restaurant has some amazing sushi. It's one of our favorite local date-night places. It's small. But, if there's a wait, it always worth it!

Four of us visited Kurata and we all were very pleased with the Japanese food. The presentation was beautiful, the food delicious and the service friendly. We ordered four different entrees…soba, pork tonkatsu, tempura, and salmon. The only, very minor, weak spot was the miso soup…a little weak on the miso. We will definitely return, often.

Thank ojichan
