i love this place – i always come here in the early evening and get seated right away. the selction is great. i like the names of the different dishes. my favorite to eat is the caterpillar roll and the scallop volcano. I polish it all off with an Asahi and i get a contented full stomach sushi high for the next 3 hours.
Surprisingly fine atmosphere and incredible yummy sushi! – We were seated immediately and the staff were all smiles and help. The sushi options are vast and funny. Never thought I'd love warm, tempura sushi...BUT I DID! Large portions with very reasonable prices. I'm worried about posting this cause I don't want to ruin a good thing, but we'll definitely be back over and over again. :)
Your new favorite. – Seems like everyone has their favorite sushi joint, and everyone always insists theirs is the best. Well, ill tell you, nothing even remotely compares to Sushi Mania. Nothing. Mio Sushi, sorry not even close. Yuki's, nope no way. Masu..hah! Saburo's , nope sorry, try again. Hama, no mama. Yoko's, nope-o's.
Forget the cheesy name, its by far the best sushi youll ever put in your mouth.
Great Food, Slow Service – My mom and I decided to try this place because we love sushi and I read about it on-line. There was plenty of parking on the street and we were seated promptly. There were about 3-4 other tables already seated when we got there. We waited at least 15 minutes for the waitress to come take are order and it seemed strange because there didn't really seem like there was anything else for the waitress to be doing. The food also took awhile to come out and I think we were the only ones waiting for our food. When we got the food it was very impressive. I ordered the Chirashi and my mom ordered the Sashimi Salad. Both were large sized and very well presented. The fish was extremely fresh and the slices were hearty. The salad dressing was also very good and flavorful. We will definitely go back because the food was so good but it would be nice if the service improved.
RED DRAGON – Yummy, yummy in my tummy!!! I went to Sushi Mania last night and had an amazing roll called the red dragon, ibichi and the las Veags roll. Oh my gosh they were all amazing! There was a great and creative selection...different than other sushi places. I thought the wait staff was very layed back, but courteous and very helpful-great service! Some may think the outside is plain, but the interior is very cozy and loved the lights! All in all- will definately be back...
Amazing Sushi – We thought we'd try this place, after an early movie at the Regal Lloyd. Despite the latest review , I was happily surprised. This is a cosy little restaurant with amazingly delish sushi. Since we were the only ones there near closing time, no way to assess the service. The guy who waited on us was prompt and attentive, our food arrived promptly in any case. I wasn't driven over the top by the Pink Lady, perhaps not to my taste, but absolutely adored every other selection we chose. Fresh, distinctive, and totally worth returning. Both my son and I used the restrooms and found them to be clean and tidy, just to give a different report than a previous diner. I'll be coming back there, and bringing friends.
the sushi was great... everything else... not so much. – We were looking for a new sushi place to try out, and after citysearching sushi mania, we decided to try it just because they had a cupon and reviews said even though the outside was not so pretty, the sushi was good. Well.. we drove up to what looked like it could be a dirty strip club, and with the name sushi mania..we were a little skeptical. the place is small, and decently deccorated. when we walked in i had to ask someone where we could sit because no one really acknowledged us. when we looked at the menu they had a good selection of sushi and things, but the waitress was a bit unklowledgable about the drinks and what they did and did now have in stock. We ordered about 30 pieces of sushi between two of us, miso soup and some edamame... it was SO GOOD. if you have been to i love sushi.. it was of that quality. it was dilectable. what we didn;t like was that the waitress wans't too helpful and she kind of just left us to ourselves which was nice, but it would be great if she knew about what she was serving. the bathrooms are kind of gross... they were playing old school britney spears and who let the dogs out ... ?? wtf? and they had WWF on the TV.... why even have a tv? and maybe some better music.. so i guess if you don't care about your surroundings, and having a GREAT experience.. if you just are in it for the sushi and not the service... this is a good place to go. the sushi was great.. everything else... not so much.
THE BEST SUSHI I EVER ATE – My boyfriend and I went to "sushi mania" yesterday and thought it was the best sushi we ever ate! At first, we were a little scared because the front looks so ugly and the name "sushi mania" made us think sushi might be served on a conveyor belt, but when we took a bite of the sushi, we were in heaven. The Ichi, rainbow roll, spider roll and wild sockeye salmon were to die for. Normally I don't eat raw fish because I had it once at mio sushi and the fish tasted "fishy" like it wasn't fresh. But when I bit into the rainbow roll all I could think of was "WOW!!" Great place to eat because there is no wait. I am going there again for sure
OMG. AMAZING!!! – You know how a lot of places on citysearch get all these great reviews and you go try them out and they end up being not-so-great? This is not one of those places! Sushimania has, by far, the BEST SUSHI I have had in Portland. And trust me, I am a sushi fanatic. I can't stop, it's an addiction. I go to this place almost everyday. GO NOW. GO TO SUSHIMANIA!!
