Really enjoyed our dining experience. The Curry with chicken was excellent. I also like liked our okra and mushrooms skewers and the spicy tuna roll. My husband enjoyed slurping his ramen with pork belly, egg and green onions. We sat at the counter where foods items were grilled. It was definitely fun to watch the food prep and drink draft...

What an amazing quality. We sat at the sushi bar where you can see how all the sushi is prepared. Sushi chefs were just exceptional. Fresh tuna and quality ingredients was great. This is the best sushi I've had so far and I live on the Gulf coast. We get a lot of fresh fish at home. But this tops... More

In Portland on business. The young, friendly, and attentive staff created a relaxed, warm, and lovely dining experience. Had robata and the ebi mayo (crispy shrimp with chili mayo & fried wonton skins). Food was excellent. Sake on the side made for a perfect evening at a very reasonable price.

Went in after walking the park up and down. Had the nigiri plate and a bowl of Ramen. Was warming and very tasty. Service was good, sushi was excellent, Ramen was very good. They had a very good lunch crowd. I would go back.

While staying in Portland, we ventured up the block & found this lovely place. Some traditional Japanese style seating, great food, amazing staff & a great atmosphere. My husband is new to Japanese cuisine & LOVED everything he tried! We would definitely go back when we are in the area!

Enjoyed this "better than noodle" joint near Portland State and downtown. Very pleasant young staff, very lovely and imaginative Japanese noodles. Loved some of the appetizer and the beer was good too. Very reasonable.

Great atmosphere and service, authentic cuisine, very affordable. This place is fairly new, but has the vibe of an established neighborhood favorite. For good reason!

We came to Shigezo for dinner on our last evening in Portland. We were not in a hurry, so the slower service really did not bother us. Our waiter was busy and didn't seem to focus, but he was very helpful and our food was delicious. The Spicy a Roll with salmon, was the best sushi roll we have ever... More

Our Waiter was very attentive even though it was busy and other Wait Staff also brought our dishes with smiles and pleasant attitudes even though they were busy. They have "small plate" items that you can share and be able to try many items without having to decide on one big entree. The only dish not so stellar was the... More
