Best sushi at reasonable price – I've tried many different Sushi and Japanese restaurants, and Toshi is one of the best. Their tunas are nice and red, not stringy nor does it taste like water like many other places. Toshi also serve toro that does not taste frozen which is a big plus for toro lovers. There are also menus you most likely will not find in another Japanese restaurant, like different types of noodles. Their tempura has a thick batter, unlike others.
The down side to eating here is the place gets packed very quickly, and there are usually no more than 2 servers so you may find some difficultly getting prompt service. Also the food here is somewhat more expensive than your normal Japanese restaurant so if price is a big concern for you, then you may not like this place.
Also, the hours posted by Citysearch is incorrect. The restaurant opens at 11:30AM for lunch, not 1:30PM. I learned this the hard way.
Best Sushi in Portland! – I'm by no means a sushi aficionado, but I do know great nigiri when I taste it! I regularly go out of my way to enjoy the unbelievable Maguro/Hamachi/Sake nigiri @ Toshi whenever I can, and am sometimes even rewarded with decadent Toro. The fish is always fresh, the texture is consistent, and the taste has never been out of line.
To the person that was never greeted at the door, I'm sorry you had such a negative experience. I usually go alone and just seat myself @ the sushi bar, so I can't relate, but I can almost guarantee that I would have vocalized my displeasure if I had been in your shoes, or just seated myself. I'm sure they would have apologized profusely and gone the extra mile to make the rest of your experience worthwhile.
Can a girl get some attention, please?? – Before I start with my review, I just want it to be known that I have worked in customer service before and I am in no way a monster customer. I have a lot of patience, especially when it comes to food. However, my patience ran out with this place and that usually does not happen.
I came in with my mom and no one came to greet us, or even to at least tell us that they'll be right with us. We stood by the door minute after minute after minute without anyone acknowledging our presence. I checked out the place and saw that there were two tables opened. If it was completely packed, I would have been more understanding to the delayed seating. The workers kept walking back and forth passed my mom and I and we started to wonder if we were even still alive. I can't believe how much I was being ignored. I did not feel valued as a customer and it was very disappointing. I kept track of time and I stood there for over ten minutes without anyone acknowledging my presence. The only people who did notice us were the customers who were already seated who kept looking at my mom and I because we were standing there for quite sometime. After about fifteen minutes of waiting (and I am not exaggerating on the time), I went out the door and never turned back.
It is definitely not a good feeling when you feel that the restaurant does not value your business. I did not feel welcomed at all. I suggest going somewhere else with a friendlier atmosphere and workers who value their customers more. I will never go back so I won't ever get to try out their sushi but I guess I really don't want to at a place like that. No one likes to be ignored.
By far, my favorite – I live in Portland but have no problem taking the time to travel to Toshi when I have the sushi urge. Their fish is fresh, service is great and they even bring out special plates and silverware for my infant. It's always the same waitress when we go and she knows just what we want. Personal favorites: spider roll, rock roll, spicy tuna and unagi. Their other menu items are really good as well. If you want a more personal/intimate experience, eat here.
Horrible flavor – This was a place recommended to me by a friend. It was with a lot of excitement that we would be trying it for the first time. They had what seemed like a very good selection. But 1.50 for one 12 ounce can of soda pop was a little over the top. The miso soup was very good, but the regular garden salad was served with chopsticks. The sushi was awful. I was shocked to see so many great reviews. The Kappa was inside out, and the rice was fishy. The nori wrappers themselves tasted like they were stored right next to the rest of the old raw fish in the fridge. Everything was over salted. Including the soy sauce. The presentation was less than thrilling. It seemed as though no pride was taken in serving such an amazing cuisine. It was just slopped together with rice. We couldn't even finish our meal. What a huge disappointment. This left us with a bad taste in our mouthes.
Get there early! – Toshi is small and fills up right after they open, for good reason! The food is fresh and the service is efficient. We were disappointed when our previous sushi haunt changed hands, but luckily, we discovered an unexpected treasure in Toshi to fill the void. The variety is impressive, and everything we've tried has been outstanding. Their spicy, creamy scallop hand roll is to die for!
Editorial Review by Mary Morley – Tiny mom and pop Japanese restaurant serves authentic cooked dishes as well as a wide array of fresh sushi options.
Great small neighborhood sushi place – Been going to this place periodically since they opened and bought-out the previous owner who called the place "Yoshi" (fellow's name was Yoshi, don't know if current owner is named Toshi). Liked it as Yoshi's and like it still (had even fewer tables when it was Yoshi's). Need to arrive at the right time or wait a while, but the sushi is excellent, and take-away is always an option. One of my favorite places to go for Sushi.
Tendon no onions – We love getting take out from here since there is not much seating. I always get the tendon w/no onions and my spouse gets curry. Highly recommend.
Jummy ! – Looked up on local sushi rating and surprice such a small place in my neighbourhood would get the best rating, I gota try it. Ah, the tea! And a warm greeting wake my tummy. Sushi served in traditional kitchen set that I haven't seen elsewhere. The place doesn't have enough space for a scrolling bar, but cozy enough to attract couples and friends.
Ordering sushi require a little bit sushi knowlege since the menu is new to me; Price is above average but worth the taste, and the soup reminds me to come back, soon...
