Yosaku has withstood the test of time to become a Portland classic with their homestyle Japanese food that ranges from sushi to soba and teppanyaki. Fishmongers bring their freshest product to the sushi chefs here where the local catch becomes lobster sashimi or scallops on the half-shell served on little wooden boats. Lunch specials like their sushi combinations and ever-changing daily bento boxes are also great, but what makes this place special is their large, outdoor patio with ample space for big parties to enjoy their manicured Japanese garden. Reservations are recommended for their indoor dining room, which is separated into a sushi bar and both traditional Japanese and Western-style seating.
