The most authentic sushi/japanese dining in town. The owner's son apparently flies for Japan Airlines and it shows, as there is always something unusual and fresh on the board. We usually come for strictly sushi and have to say that after living in Portland for over 20 years, this is the place for the best. Not cheapest, not the trendiest, but the best. Not many seats, a good idea to arrive early at 530pm opening. A major concert hall is across the street, so if you try to find a spot at the bar or table on show night at 7pm, good luck. I have never been disappointed with the fresh offerings at Murata. It is subdued and fiercely authentic-a good thing.

If you're a sushi lover, you'll want to check this place out. It has the best chirashi I have ever had in all my days of trying sushi. Great ambiance and service as well.
