We ordered straight sushi and it was mediocre at best and pretty limited, basic menu. In all fairness I'm not sure how their regular Japanese cuisine is so don't let this meh review deter you from trying that. However, if you're looking for sushi I can think of a ton of places you'd be better off doing. Service was very... More

First off, let me say, the food was really good. We ordered the Black Cod Miso and the only place we had better was in Seattle. We were at first skeptical as it was located in like an Apartment Building and not easy to recognize. The next thing was on entering the place there was a sign that said got... More

This is a hidden treasure. You may pass it and not realize it is there, since it is somewhat understated and in a small office development in an area of Powell Boulevard that has few interesting restaurants. Nevertheless, those who appreciate good Japanese food know about it and it was good to see that it was full on the evening... More

Thank goodness our realtor told us about this restaurant; we never would have noticed the small sign in the ground floor window of a nondescript office building on southeast Powell Blvd. While only open for dinner, they do have Happy Hour which we like because it gives us a chance to sample a few more items. The staff is Japanese,... More

There are easier restaurants to find in Southeast Portland, but the Ichidai Restaurant is well worth the hunt. Located on Powell, you must pay attention to the street numbers or you might miss it. There is modest signage, but you have to be alert to find this treasure chest full of fabulous Japanese cuisine. The sushi bar is excellent. The... More

Going on the recommendation of Japanese friends, we tried Ichidai tonight. All four of us have been to Japan at least once, and all of us were very pleased with the food at Ichidai. We were sure to order a variety so we could share, which made it even more enjoyable. The only thing missing was an "Irashaimasen" when we... More

I have been eating at Ichidai for years. They never cease to offer incredibly fresh fish, delicious sake and great service. The location is somewhat difficult to find,( off busy and always under construction Powell Blvd), and the parking is always interesting, but i highly recommend going despite these small obstacles. It will remain my favorite for many more years... More

Whenever we travel to Portland, we try to include a meal at ichdai. We have spent time in the Orient and developed a taste for Japanese Cuisine. It is hard to find an authentic Japanese Restaurant that has not been "Americanized". Ichidai is one. The restaurant is all you expect, the decor is authentic, the Sushi Bar is great and... More
