We went to Zilla Sake house (instead of Nimble Fish) based upon a review from Saveur. We went for an early dinner. Cool, quite place. Good attentive service. Sushi and fish are just average... Somewhat of a fishy smell upon entering the restaurant. We ordered...More

They didn’t have tuna! (They had a shipping error or something). The salmon was tasty and fresh, sake, seaweed salad were good. A little expensive. Service was slow at the sushi counter even though it wasn’t crowded.

With Portland's love for lines, I don't understand how there isn't one wrapped around the block for Zilla. This is the best sushi in Portland and compares to the best I've had anywhere. Sit at the bar, choose omakase and just enjoy the sushi and...More

Hey was visiting for the weekend and heard this place was great but I'd have to disagree... the portions were small, not very tasty, and even seemed a little pricier than I would consider typical. The waiter didn't even refill our water while we waited...More

It's five stars for the quality of food, 5 stars for recommendation and 5 stars for service. But don't talk business at the sushi counter and container sizes at the sushi counter. Other sales people want to get away from sales when they visit Zilla...More

Zilla is a small, cozy Sushi spot on Alberta - a great street! I had an assortment of Nigiri - the chef has a personal menu listing each night with special sushi that he has chosen. The fish was so fresh and sweet tasting! Love...More
