Relaxed Sushi spot and lounge, serving very good sushi at moderate prices. Service is friendly and helpful, food served fast, and tastes very good. Alcohol is available. Parking is on street.

We were staying at a nearby B&B and were walking into town. Saw this Japanese restaurant & decided to stop in for Sunday brunch. The sashimi & rolls were fantastic! Would return when next in Portland.

The service at this place is great, there attentive and friendly. The food is amazing, in my experience no matter what you get it will be delicious. Some of my favorites are the dinner bento box and the Titanic roll. Great Japanese place
