Le Hana On River Parkway – If you have a groupon beware. We sat at the sushi bar and watch the rolls being made. Interesting when we got ours they were half the size. Also saw them takin premade rolls coming out from plastic wrap. Spicy tuna and salmon taste the same. Paid $16 for a secert roll five pieces.......the fish was not fresh. They did not earn a return visit.
My other groupons were not like this at all.............not sure if you could get away with telling them about the groupon after you eat.
Would not even give them one star but had tooooooooooo.
Sucks and disappointed. – this place sucks! I've been there twice w/ my sister and it was fine, but today I tried to make a reservation for a party of 10 and they didn't take my reservation. They said they couldn't accomodate that big of group. Last month, we had the same number of people went there and didn't make reservation and they didn't let us in because the server told us that we had to make reservation! Now I tried to make a reservation and they didn't take it. They need to make up their mind on the policy of reservation! They'd rather take smaller groups instead of big groups.
I probably won't go back there again because of this bad service.
Disappointed – Sucked! Didn't even eat there and the service was absolutely horrible. I have lived in Portland all of my life and never have I experienced what I did tonight. Before arriving at the restaurant, I had googled their website to see what time they closed. It said 9:45. I arrived at this place at 9 to have the dude tell us that he's not seating tables for the night anymore. ARE YOU SERIOUS??? It's sushi!!! It's not like you have to cook it. Anyways. What a bummer. I was real amped about going to this place too...Oh well, ended up at Henry's. Guess I should stick to what I already know.
Better than the best – Hair loss can start with a few extra hairs in the sink or in your comb. Later, it can progress to a bare scalp.
Baldness typically refers to excessive hair loss from your scalp and can be the result of heredity, certain medications or an underlying medical condition. Anyone — men, women and children — can experience hair loss.
Some people prefer to let their baldness run its course untreated and unhidden. Others may cover it up with hairstyles, makeup, hats or scarves. And still others choose one of the medications and surgical procedures that are available to treat hair loss. Before pursuing any treatment option, talk with your doctor about the cause of and best possible treatments for your hair loss.

Never Going Back To Le Hana – Had family dinner (3 persons) there last night, for the 1st (and last) time.
Crazy J Roll ($17)
Spider Roll ($19)
Tempura/Sashimi Bento ($21)
Green Tea ($3 / person)
Coke ($3 / person)
Total Bill: ($63)
We had a Groupon that we paid $20 for, gave us $45 off the bill. Including tip, we paid $45 out-of-pocket.
Place setting is upscale, more pretentious than elegant. Service was average. TV screens over Sushi Bar and projector all playing Sports broadcast.
The rolls portions were small, only placed widely spread out to simulate larger portions. The ingredients were not fresh, the sauces were excessive.
Some Tempura pieces were not cooked through, were luke warm when served. Again portions are small for the price.
The salad was just iceberg lettuce with Thousand Island dressing with shreds of carrots.
The rice was dry, hard, and cold; was not quality Japanese rice. We sat close to the kitchen entrance and saw all the dinner bento boxes with rice upside-down cup-shaped already loaded, sitting there. Probably why they went dry/cold.
The 6-pc Sashimi had a piece of triangular tuna end-chunk, unacceptable in any other Japanese restaurant. All the raw fish pieces were dry and small. The two yellow-tail pieces were still hanging to each other, not sliced through.
I work in Hillsboro, and have seen the closed-down Le Hana in West Tanasbourn. Now I understand why it closed down. The 50%-Off marketing ploy is a last-ditch effort to keep the South Waterfront restaurant open, but the price-quality story is simply not compelling and not sustainable. I heard the West Tanasbourn location also ran 50%-off promotions until it ran into the ground.
I learned that the same owners opened a Best Teriyaki restaurant in the same West Tanasbourn plaza, 3 store-fronts down from the closed Le Hana. I have eaten at this new Best Teriyaki and their Sushi Rolls are the same as the Le Hana at South Waterfront, and cost only <$5 each order when added to your Bento lunch order.
I don't understand why the owners believe dinner customers can be cheated out of their hard-earned money.
I will never take my family to Le Hana again.
Excellent Sushi – I am not big on sushi generally, but Le Hana at the south waterfront was excellent. The service was great and the food was amazing. The Le Hana special was very tasty. We went in on a friday and we ordered 4-5 items, 2 appetizers and 3 entrees (big mistake for 2 people, the portions are very generous). Couldn't quite finish all the food, but when we got the bill they had taken off 50% for a promotion they were having and we didn't even have to ask and didn't even know about it, so that was a nice surprise. This is the best sushi we've had in Portland. We will be back.
Perfection – We went here last night. Loved everything, the drinks are amazing, the food was super fresh and perfectly seasoned. Sushi was fresh, I had kobe beef that was well seasoned and tender. The waitress was attentive and very helpful with suggestions. The dessert was good, but not incredible like the rest of the meal. We will be back often.
Terrible Sushi, Terrible Service, Never Returning – This place is far from having the "best" sushi or even "good" sushi. It's acceptable. We went there after seeing a large banner outside the restaurant advertising 50% of all food with the caveat that you order a drink (sodas/iced tea $3). There are menus online that are not only cheaper than what they offer at the restaurant, they have a totally different selection. It's liked they marked up all their food. The best part, more than 60% of the nigris on the menu are not even offered or they are always out of it. The service is terrible!!!
yummy rolls! – I initially went to la hana because it's so often referred to as the best sushi in portland! I'm not sure if I agree with it being the BEST but its certainly very good. The rolls are unique and delicious. the bar has an amazing sake selection too. Our server let us in on a happy hour they're doing tonight with sake tyku cocktails!
Exellent Breakfast! – Excellent Breakfast, Shrimp and Crab Omelet was excellent, came with potatoes, all were full of flavor. Very nice people there too.
