After 30 years, “The search for the BEST Tempura has finally been found!” My Mother used the most delicate and light crispy batter for her shrimp, sweet potatoes, and other various veggies. She always laid the most tender, broiled eel on her sushi. I’m a...horrible cook. So, after she passed, I have prowled all over Oregon and Washington and...found in my own backyard Mom’s replacement...Meeka Sushi! I bring friends and family here regularly. Since I feel guilty, selfishly wolfing down all of their delicious selections. Prices are very reasonable. Friendly and courteous service!!! I go when it is not the meal time rush.More

Ate here on a recommendation from a local. Went on a Saturday night without a reservation and were seated at the last open table. Had to remove our shoes for the traditional style seating which meant bare feet on a sticky floor as I’d worn...flip flops. :-( My husband had a combination teriyaki chicken dinner which came with fresh sashimi plus the usual sides. My son and I had the mango roll and the Meeka 2 roll. All the food was really fresh and good. The only criticism is that the tempura appetizer we ordered came out after most of our meal was consumed. I would definitely return here but sit a table and chairs option. This is obviously a local favorite and for a small kitchen handles the volume well.More

We have been coming to this restaurant for several years. The food and the food portions are very good and the price of their food is excellent. However, the service has historically been on the slow side. Today, for lunch, the service was extremely slow....We were the first one in the restaurant and it took over 45 minutes before we got our lunch. We ordered teriyaki and tempura. When we got our lunch, the teriyaki was luke warm, like it had been sitting out for awhile. We suspect that they cooked the teriyaki first and then let it set while the tempura was cooking. One of us received his lunch first and the rest of us received our lunch about 5 - 10 minutes later. Because of the slow service, we as well as other groups that came in for lunch, went up to the cash register to pay since we thought it would take a long time before any of us would get a bill at our table. The food is very good, but you may want to avoid this place if you don't have a lot of time to eat or if you are running on a tight time schedule.More

This hidden Japanese restaurant has been a consistent gem for years. Yesterday, I had tempura calamari and nabeyaki soba. Nabeyaki soba is not on the menu, but the noodle substitution was made without question. The time before I had a very nice sashimi platter. All...were excellent. When ever I am visiting that side of town, I try to stop by.More

My husband and I are staying at a hotel not far from the restaurant. It was pretty slow as we went on a Wednesday. There was only one woman taking care of the entire restaurant which is not huge but honestly too much for one...person to both wait on tables and bus them. I was pleased with the food. I only had 2 rolls because my husband doesn't eat sushi. He had a steak dish. The miso was very good and not too salty. I would go back if we ever come back (we are visiting from the east coast).More

Very few places nowadays will serve real crab in their sushi items; Meeka is one of the better ones where you will find that. They also have great lunch entrees fairly reasonably priced. Their Alaskan roll is also very good.

This is hands down the best sushi I've ever had. They're resonably priced, have extremely nice staff, and recently made some updates to the restaurant. We LOVE Meeka!

I've been here at least 5-6 times, and I keep coming back because it is the closest sushi place to my home and I try to support local businesses when I'm able. The space and especially the flooring need updating, and I've received chipped or...mismatched dinnerware more than once. However, the food is good, the pricing fairly standard, and the service is friendly.More
