Good again – Hakatamon has had its ups and downs over the last few years. This was mostly due to changes in the kitchen and a paucity of waitstaff, but they seem to be back on target. I have had few complaints about the quality of sushi, but orders from the kitchen, even the miso soup have been quite bad in the past. I often order the Udon soup for lunch or dinner, and I have had a couple of poor experiences with warm (not HOT like it's supposed to be) broth in the pm. Service speed has improved significantly now that there is more then one person waiting on tables!
Sushi has always been good and fresh. I can only remember one suspect order of uni in the many years I've eaten there.
Overall, I recommend Hakatamon for sushi and large plate Japanese meals in Beaverton. My four stars reflect the uneven food fom the kitchen, not the quality sushi!
BEST SUSHI IN TOWN !! – When people say, "I love sushi," what they really mean is, "I love fresh, top-quality fish."
The atmosphere is small and quaint, the sushi chefs greet you upon your entrance, "Irasshaimase". The food served promptly and artistically presented. The sushi is made from quality ingredients and sashimi tastes yummy ocean fresh !
This place has some of the best sushi I have had, and I have eaten a lot of sushi !! You get your money's worth. NOT heavy on the rice and fillers as some places are. You know what I am taking about, generous with fish and appropriate rice content.
We mostly eat sashimi and love love love the uni they get . They also get some tasty fish not found in other sushi restaurants in town - like Aji - we eat sashimi style than they lightly fry fish carcass for us to eat. Its super yummy !
We usually eat here once a week since its so crazy good !
Maido or maido arigatou: "Thank you, come again!"
Inexpensive, really tasty Japanese food – I discovered Hakatamon last October after moving to the Cedar Hills area, and I've been going with my wife (and everyone I can get to come) many times since then. Of all the sushi I've had in Oregon this is the cheapest we've found for this level of well-structured sushi, making Hakatamon one of my regulars. Some of the other reviewers remark on the small staff, but it's a fairly small restaurant and every time I've been there they have had enough staff to keep up relatively well without getting haggard. Kudos to the sushi chefs for putting up with our huge orders. Once I watched as they received my party's ticket and the two of them literally jumped when they looked at it. But they went at it and finished quickly, and WE didn't jump when we received the bill (unlike some other Japanese restaurants I've been to). A solid recommendation.
small staff - declining quality – I've been going to this restaurant since June, and over the last few months, I've watched the quality decline. For some reason, only one server and one sushi chef have been working the last three times I've gone in. Last Monday night, there were more than 15 tables, with 30 people total in the place. That is too much for such a small staff. Plan on being there for well over an hour, and watch the staff work at breakneck pace trying to keep up. You cannot serve customers well this way. I think the owner will kill the restaurant if he doesn't change the way it's being managed. I like the food and think the servers are very nice, but I question going back anymore if things continue this way.
To Hakatamon's owner – Owner of Hakatamon, what you're doing to your sushi chef and server is unethical. I was in there on Monday at 6:45pm and I ended being done at 8:15 and I only ordered sushi. Almost all your tables were full, there were over 30 people in your restaurant. But only one sushi chef and one server, shame on you for making them work like this. So when do they get a break?
Your food is good but the service is poor and it's not the servers fault. Your floor gets stickier everyday, because they are so rushed all the time, the cleanliness of your restaurant is deteriorating. If you're too cheap to hire another sushi chef and server then you need to be there from 6-8pm.
over-rated – If you are really hungry, this is not a place to eat. You end up waiting an hour or so to get your appetizer. Servers are snobby too. If this is not conveniently located inside Uwajiyama, I would not go there.
good sushi, but no consistant. – this place was one of my favorite restaurant use to be. some reason, it is not my favorite anymore. everytime, i had to wait for at least 40 mins to 1 hours to get a table, waiter and waitress is not so efficient, even food lost freshness sometimes. I hope this place have better management like before, and become my favorite place again.
OROSHI! – love this place. their sushi servings are large, but for non raw eaters like myself, they offer several cooked dishes as well. my personal favorite is the oroshi, cold udon with shrimp tempura. the wait might be awhile on some days, but it doesn't take too long if you browse through the connecting market.
Great quality, unpretentious setting – As a long time sushi fans, we were delighted with Hakatamon's move to larger quarters. Located beside one of our favorite shopping places Uwajimaya, it is convenient and a treat. The prices are reasonable, and the attention to detail, the consistency of quality, and the variety of choice was exactly what we need. The chef makes his own udon, and if you are there about 2pm you will see him at work making your noodles. This is not for a once-yearly night out, since jeans are the dress code, and children who are well behaved are certainly welcome. But a taste of saki or beer is possible to round out a truly superb dining experience.
Not bad – The sushi is not bad, larger then before, the vibe is pretty good. But not as authentic and fresh as Syun or Muruta IMO. Worth a try if you never been there before.
