I'm a hardcore sushi snob. I came here because it's close to where we live and because my friend wanted to come here.. I hadn't been here in years because I was never fond of it in the past and had since moved on to... (more)

Next to Saburo's in Sellwood, Kappaya is my only choice for good sushi in Portland proper. You can keep Takahashi, Mio Sushi, Koji, Yuki and all the other trendy, gimmicky and cheap places. Kappaya's owner knows how... (more)
