Portland >Food & Dining > Hiroshi
Food is great! The only thing may be the portions are really small for what you pay.
If you want to have some good and unique sushi, it would be a place to go!
portion sizes for hobbits.
I've never paid 45 dollars to only end up going somewhere else for dinner right afterwards.
The portions are tiny, like, smaller than happy meal sized.
For 12 dollars my companion for 3 tiny pieces of overcooked, chewy beef and 2 spears of asparagus. Rice costs extra.
I ended up paying 9 bucks for what must have been 2 oz of the saddest tuna ive ever seen. The flavors were not well seared in, the dressing was too sparse.
At the end of the meal, we paid and went across the street to lovejoy bakers and had a lovely dinner for 20 bucks.
The salmon roll we got was nice, that was the only saving grace.
good sushi, not overpriced. We hesitated to try Hiroshi based on complaints that it was too expensive. I am so glad we went! $100 before tip for 2 big guys and myself. We had appetizers and lots of nigiri and rolls, saki and beers. We were absolutely stuffed and left a couple of pieces on the platter. Based on my sushi experiences, it was a decent value for high quality sushi. No more than other quality sushi restaurants.
Just great food.
bluefin tuna belly and secret sauce is unbelievable! quality of the cut is hard to obtain, well worth the price. We had about 8 different rolls and nigiri. Everything fresh and delicately presented. Mrs Hiroshi's desserts were absolutely wonderful too!
Overall, a great dining experience. No rudeness, no evil eyes. Maybe we get what we give?
Want sushi, not extinctions for lunch.
The first thing we saw on the menu was so called "Black tuna," which is a common name for Bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus). The species is not only recognized as an endangered species (see Seafoodwatch program) but is known to carry elevated levels of mercury and PCBs.
The second thing we saw was a dish called "wild Tasmanian salmon." When we asked the waitress about such an interesting new type of salmon and noted that we thought wild Pacific salmon only originate from the North Pacific (not South Pacific near Australia), she responded with "That's what our distributor told us." Well, young lady, maybe it’s time for a new distributor? Because there are only two options here: one, the fish is farmed, which means you are mislabeling your product. Or two, it’s an escaped farmed salmon that is now spawning in the wild!
Third thing I saw on the menu. "Oregon salmon roll." I’m thinking, heres something I can feel good about eating. Surely during the peak of the wild salmon run in Oregon your dish called Oregon salmon roll is using our local salmon bounty. Or, at least its using Alaska wild salmon. But not at Hiroshi. "Sorry," she said. "Its made with farmed Chilean salmon!"
When will these sushi restaurants realize that as a purveyor of ocean species, they have a obligation to learn where they get their fish, how it was harvested, and whether the species is in trouble or not. Lets make sure we have sushi around for our kids and grandkids. I’m going to Bamboo Sushi instead.
Best sushi in Portland. My husband and I have been faithful customers for 15 years. Hiro is always creating new dishes with delicious sauces. His new creations aren't always on the menu, so your best bet is to ask for chef's selection and let him make selections for you. Dinner will take up to 2 hours, so plan accordingly.
It's not the best after they changed the menu..
They changed the menu. I can't believe it.
If you were Japanese, you wouldn't enjoy their nigiri anymore. I was really disappointed.
I could see they are trying to attract American customers.
Now I have to find another sushi restaurant again in this city!
horrible, don't waste your money. this place needs to relocate itself. We ordered the baked scallops and ate a small bite and gagged, knowing we'd get sick off them and sure enough, the next day, we paid for it. The fish was not fresh, the wine list was horrible, and the prices, come on, go to LA with those prices. The edimanes I know have a subtle flavor, but they do go a lot farther with a sprinkle of salt. The server was ok, definitely didn't go out of his way to make sure when we left within 30 min of arrival that everything was ok. Wouldn't recommend this place at all, you can find better sushi by going to the pruveyor belts.
Menu items have changed!!. I hadn't been to Hiroshi's in a while. I dined here recently and was surprised to see some new items on the menu. What once was strictly sushi now served Izakaya style small appetizers. I had ordered the gyoza dumpling because my daughter loves this! It was very tender and juicy with a variety of vegetables inside along with the meat. I also tried the Washugyu (Japanese beef). This was my favorite! The beef was cooked just right and the sauce was amazing! Everything was priced lower as well with appetizers starting from $5. The atmosphere seemed much casual than before. I will definately be back again for the pork asparagus maki, tempura roll, and beef tongue that I did not get a chance to try. I cannot wait!
Best Sushi (and Sushi Chefs) In Portland.
My wife and I have eaten here nearly 30 times in the past two years, so it's time for a review. The food has been consistently wonderful every time. We always eat at the bar in front of either Hiroshi or his incredible chef Nabi. Allowing them to give you recommendations based on your tastes is always wise. We were there last night and the highlights included yellow tail tuna and a lightly seared salmon. My wife had a salad made with octopus that was amazing. Also of note is that Hiroshi's is lowering its price in both food and wine (they feature white wines starting at $6.50 which are of excellent quality and reds starting at $5, which is unheard of in the Pearl). Our bill with one large beer and two glasses of wine was $52.50 before tip!
Hiroshi is also adding beef to the menu and we'll be heading back next week to sample the Kobe-style meat he's adding. It's true that the place looks a bit sterile to some, but the food and service is terrific and very welcoming. Make a reservation to sit at the sushi bar - you'll be thrilled with your experience at the best sushi restaurant in Portland.
