If you are coming in Portland you need stop by this restaurant. They have one downtown and one on broadway not too far from the Lloyd center. They are cooking real Japanese food. It is not just sushis or typical Japanese restaurant... You can order very specific food you can only find in japan or maybe some big cities like... More

We like trying Japanese restaurants when visiting from out of town. There were several options in the area of north-east Portland and we tried this one. We both ordered noodles, one udon and one ramen. I am vegan so I chose a soy sauce flavour soup with plain ramen. Unfortunately, the dish came with the pork bone soup base. When... More

My wife and I have been going to the various Koji locations for about 27 years. There's a reason for that. We've <b>never</b> been disappointed. I believe their tempura to be either the very best I've eaten, or so close to the best that the difference does not matter. They have, on occasion, tempura okra, which is not to be... More

I like all kinds of food (see my reviews) and I enjoyed my visit here. I came in the evening and sat at the sushi bar. It was just occluded enough that I could not see them prepare the sushi, although I could see their faces and shoulders (I'm over 6 feet tall). The service was fast and the food... More

Here for a conference and meandered around my hotel for food. This was a great stop. Small and cozy. Happy hour specials made a cheap dinner.

Ok so I lived in Japan for a couple of years so I can be critical of bad Japanese food and even notice the budget rice some restaurants use. You wont find that here. If you speak Japanese they only speak Japanese to you but also speak english flawlessly. They have a happy hour and always have different specials going.... More

This restaurant provides you choices in Japanese cuisine that almost everyone can identify with and select something that will make them happy to have eaten there. The service was excellent as was the food. There were so many good choices on the menu that we could have come back several more times and still not have tried all the things... More

Actually, I really like the bowls, soup, donburi, curry. I also like the sushi, which is fresh and very delicious.The lunch combos are also very good. The people are friendly and the service is very polite. I've eaten here many times, and the friends I take here, always comment on how good the food is. I agree..
