Great atmosphere, casual, easy to have a conversation, right off a side street, on street parking. Great full bar, limited wine menu, but a really good margarita and our friends loved the available beers. Sushi and sashimi options really good: a wonderful hamburger available for those not excited about the Japanese menu. I'd definitely go back.

All across the board: excellent experience. The atmosphere is relaxed and hip with rustic & minimalist design/decor. The menu offers great range of options without overwhelming you with choices. It demonstrates a focus on quality over quantity while maintaining diversity of tastes, styles of preparation, textures, etc. The drinks are well done & balanced. Service staff was courteous, knowledgable, &... More

Everyone really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food was delicious. We had sushi, tools and pieces, as well as other delightful dishes. Great place for 2 or for a group.

The server was great but the food just ok. We had 6 friends celebrating group birthdays. Those who ordered the burgers liked it. I would definitely plan on HH . Fellow diners loved the burger..other dishes ok. With all the good food in Portland we probably won't return.

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!

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
