Disgusting! I have had sushi all around Portland/Beaverton/Tigard and this is by far the WORST. Sushi was not fresh, tasted chewy and luke warm. No menus incase you want to order something that will actually be made fresh. And to top it off it is super expensive! We paid for four plates what we would have paid for 8 plates elsewhere. Sick. Don't go here.
Best "round about" in B'ton.
I go to Sushi Boat about 2 to 3 times a week if I'm in town. I have been going to Sushi Boat since it opened. It has since sold, and the new owner and team is just great.
The original chefs are still there, mostly, and there is a new and extensive menu for those inclined to order from it as opposed to grabbing off the conveyor belt.
No, the chefs didn't go through a 5 year aprenticeship in Japan, but they are darned good for Spanish speaking sushi chefs! -Always eager to give me what I want, promptly and with a smile. (UNLIKE that other place over by Marshalls!)
In Japan, sushi is (or was) as much of a social ritual as a dining experience. You would so much as change your sushi chef as you would your dentist. You develop a relationship and they know you and your personal preferences.
They know my kid loves potstickers and the teriyaki chicken skewers. They know I love the Philly Roll (OMG you have to try!).
These folks DO know me - when they see me coming through the door, they have my favorite beverage being made, my favorite sushi items being prepared and I always feel welcome. -As it should be.
Fair sushi. I wonder how long the sushi has sat. i always ask to have mine made fresh. I don't eat the raw fish here. The bathrooms are dirty. The wait staff is getting better but is that because they aren't busy anymore? The prices have gone way up as well. The $1.00 plate is not more. This all happened with the new owners.
I feel sick.... Sushi boat is an absolutely amazing place if you have no standards in the quality of your sushi. I do not agree with some of the reviews, in that I felt the service was just fine. I was greeted promptly and felt very welcomed. HOWEVER, the sushi here is horrific. Inexperienced sushi chefs plague this establishment. You will see stacks and stacks of prefabricated sushi plates waiting to be placed on the conveyor. ABSOLUTELY NO STANDARD FOR PORTION SIZE OR QUALITY. The sushi was warm and the rice smelt like body oder (which means it has been going round and round on the conveyors all damn day!). I shared my dissatisfaction with the lady sitting next to me. The fact of the matter is that Sushi boat is just fine if you have never tasted quality sushi. I knew going in that conveyor belt sushi is typically sub prime, however, Sushi boat sushi is a JOKE. I ate there about 30 minutes ago and already I have a clammy sweat going down my forehead and my stomach is in serious pain. MUCH BETTER SUSHI ESTABLISHMENTS AWAIT YOU! SHAME OF YOU SUSHI JOKE!
Horrible Place. This has to be one of the worst places (period) I have ever been to. First the fish was not very fresh. Second the rice was very cheap (tasted like Korean rice). Third when I went to use the restroom one of the Sushi chef's was in there and when he was done with his business he walked out, me right behind him and he did not wash his hands in the restroom or at the sink behind the counter. Needless to say we walked out immediately.
Sushi for the whole family. My family and I love this place. I have to agree with a previous rater - we've been going here since it opened, and it's still our favorite go-to place. It's a good place to try out different kinds of sushi without having to order a large serving. It's very clean, the food has always been delicious, and it's good for families, couples, or just by yourself. We highly recommend it!
Watch Out. The fresh (relative term) fish sits pre-made waiting way too long to go on the conveyor. Items which should be cold are not; items which should be hot are not: items which should be crisp are not. If you are new to Sushi you might try a Japanese Grill instead.
Great for a quick meal.. I have lived in this neighborhood for over 5 years and have gone to Sushi Boat since it opened. The staff is nice and very hands off so they are not constantly in your face. If you are looking for an easy quick meal (lunch, small young family) this is a good place. The sushi is fresh and the number of selections is somewhat limited but covers the basics. I think this is a great "quick" place and hope they are here for a long time. If you are looking for a swank, intimate dinner this isn't the place but otherwise I definitely recommned it.
I was excited about eating here, I thought the little boat idea was cute and it looked like a nice place to go. The Sushi wasn?t anything special for how much it was, only a little bit more per plate than other places around but that will add up very fast.
The wait staff isn?t all that attentive, only got my tea refilled once and there were only two other people in the restaurant. All together not a bad place but not as good as I thought it would be.
It not all about the food!.
My family and I eat here quite often. The sushi is usually pretty frech and the prices are good as well. HOWEVER, the service is not great. The wait staff was friendly but not tentative, the owners, one at the cash register the other behind the bar are both unfriendly. One would think that the owners, who are there everyday would be more friendly. When customers go out or come in, they the sushi chef all say thanks or hello, but never look you in the eye. The lady behind the register never smiles and looks pissed off every time I go in. I've been going in for almost two years now and she still does not even smile!
The sushi is nice, just need to work on the customer service.
