My brother put our name on the list around 6:30pm then went to a local brewery to wait. My husband and I joined them around 7:45pm and still weren't seated until after 9pm. If this was God's gift to my taste buds and I'd say the wait was worth it. But this didn't knock my socks off. I will echo... More

My husband and I chose this place on a whim and it was delicious. The fish was so fresh and flavorful. The service was excellent too!

I had heard about this place for a long time from a friend. We finally decided to meet there tonight (a Tuesday) and I was told to prepare to wait in line. I'm not a fan of lines and was happy to hear that my friend already had a table by the time we were looking for parking. Ambience is... More

When I visit Portland and I'm craving sushi I come here. The size of the sushi are way bigger than the normal. Quality is really good and tastes delicious! Just be prepared to wait because it can get extremely busy.

Saburo's sushi is quite good considering the price. Their salmon, smoked salmon, and ahi nigiri were great [two per serving] as was the creamy scallop [2 per serving]. Their rolls are large and the fish is very fresh. It was difficult not to order many choices as the menu is large as the sushi. I will definitely go back again.... More

From the outside, Saburo's doesn't look like much - a small, brightly-lit place in a strip-mall. Until you notice the line outside - and there's ALWAYS a line outside. Because this is hands-down THE place for sushi in Portland. Big portions, great prices, quick service, and DELICIOUS and FRESH. They don't take reservations so plan to wait (there's a pool... More

I've never been here when I didn't have to wait at LEAST 30 minutes. Yesterday we came 20 mins before opening and there was already a line around the building! Thankfully we were able to get in with the first wave, got our order in quickly and got our first delicious hot, deep-fried roll within minutes...but then waited over an... More

Would really recommend Saburo's Sushi House if you happen to be around here. They start at 4.30pm but even 45 mins before opening the queue line is already almost into the car park area. As my daughter experienced a >2 hour wait during earlier visit - we made sure we were there before 3.30 n got 1st in line. Food... More

The Mid week wait for 2 people was short. Luckily my friend had been here before and knew that the portions were large so we were careful not to order too much. We ordered 5 items (2 sashimi and 3 rolls) and still had leftovers even after opting to scoot the rice filler aside. The dishes were beautiful and tasty... More
