Out of a party of 6 I was the only one not happy with this place, so take that into consideration. As a vegan, there were not many choices. Only two salads were actually vegan. Anyway, others loved their burgers and sushi. We tried the popcorn and it was interesting. Full bar and good beer list. Nice informal atmosphere.

We were told this place was amazing, so we were pretty excited, but I found it to be so-so. If you are going for sushi, I would skip it. There is not a lot to choose from and the rolls aren't very interesting. The spicy tuna roll had little flavor and the wasabi is very different - more fluffy with... More

Service was okay, but we went when there was barely anyone else there and things still took a lot longer than I would expect. Portions are really small, but tasted great. We just had the sushi and sashimi so I'm not sure about other dishes.

My wife and I decided to do a date night for a burger and beers and had seen Yakuza Lounge had a killer burger. Yakuza does not use OpenTable, but does accept reservations through the Yelp app. The place has very nice Asian feel and vibe. We walked in at our reservation time and were seated right away! Hour hour... More

We went as a group and were seated in the private room. We tried a selection of dishes, the kale salad was amazing, not to be missed. Make sure to order multiple things, we loved the cod, the mushrooms, the sushi rolls, the tofu, etc. The kids had fun with their special menu and also tried some of the grown... More

I was looking for a Japanese restaurant near the airport in Portland Oregon. Wanted to have a great meal before our flight back east. I fortunately stumbled upon Yakuza. The menu was really interesting, and had several of the tuna specialties including the tartare, the tuna roll, and several of the sushi rolls. The food was really excellent, well-prepared, and...

My daughter and her girlfriend took us here when we visited Portland. A fun menu with lots of small plates - think of it sort of like tapas or dim sum. I would categorize the food as Asian fusion, but I'm no expert. By the end of the night we had each ordered 3 plates. We ordered one at a... More

We saw the burger on a food show special and it looked great so we decided to drive from Seattle to Portland just to try it. The restaurant has a great atmosphere. We sampled a few items off the menu and all were fantastic but when that burger arrived there was a lot of moaning and groaning with the first... More
