I HATE leaving negative reviews, but I stopped in here weary from a long drive and excited to try a new place. It was a Monday night and there were two other parties in the restaurant. One couple was already eating and another party of about 6 who were ahead of us. They mostly ordered from the kitchen, not the sushi chef. Despite the restaurant being a ghost town it still took over an hour and a half to get our food and when it arrived they had forgotten the roll we were looking forward to the most. The 3 rolls we did receive were alright. They seemed fresh, but they just werent worth a massive wait. During this time our water glasses sat empty and no one came to update us, offer something faster from the kitchen or refill the glasses. By the time our rolls came out they had pulled the blinds and started cleaning and we just didnt have time to wait for that 4th roll. I left and found dinner elsewhere. TL:DR, Dont go here if you are in a rush, want quick service or are hungry.
I have been going to Ikenohana for over 15 years. By far my favorite restaurant, every time I come back to Portland I have to go. They have simple, incredibly fresh, traditional japanese and sushi, but the price is ridiculously affordable to top it all off. Their house sake is the best Ive ever had, and even the quality of their wasabi and ginger is superb. I see a few reviews on here stating that people were refused service.. this is downright appalling to me. I have never once had a poor service experience there, and believe if you treat the restaurant with respect and understanding (it is a small place, and there is often only one sushi chef), they will return in kind. A MUST try! I tell everyone about it.
The service was courteous enough although rather slow...the waitresses were polite as in the custom of Japanese tradition. The food portion was ample and the ambiance was efficient with nothing out of line. The taste of everything we were served however was very lackluster. The teriyaki dishes seemed boiled meat or chicken with some sauce mixed in at the last minute. The grilled fish tasted somewhat fishy and the curry soba soup was so thick it seemed like the noodles were swimming in a gravy sauce. The price was very reasonable.
Was not expecting sushi to be akin to back home in Hawaii but it was dang close. Ordered the daily fish of hamachi-toro and was not let down. Great texture and taste, hardly tasted frozen and presented nicely. The surprise roll was def a surprise! A pleasant one though. Super friendly staff and excellent selection. The prices were very fair for the quality and atmosphere and I would def go back next time I am in town. Even the spicy salmon "generic" roll tasted fresh and vibrant. Would recommend.
Hole-in-the-wall Japanese restaurant that is hands down the best sushi Ive yet found in Portland. For those not interested in uncooked fish, they also have a very wide range of noodle, udon and donburi meals as well as various meats, tempura and lots of yummy goodness. The service can sometimes be a little overwhelmed by their popularity, and at times, can cause slowness, but so very worth it. And very affordable for the awesomeness of yum.

Been loyal customers for over 10 years. Lately we have been turned away for take out orders, even stating we are willing to wait up to 2 hours down the line until they can complete the order. We have driven over to place the orders in person and the restaurant is only half full and they still turn us away. Seems very rude. We are very disappointed. We always really liked them and how they treated us. Suddenly has changed.
I absolutely love getting their curry ! The only place I can find amazing and authentic food with always feeling more than satisfied! The staff are welcoming and kind! The last few times Ive had to wait for about 15 min for my food to get to me and 15 min to be seated but it was amazing !! Will continue to do date nights and catching up with friends here ! If you want to get amazing food just have patience here :)

I was suprised so many raved about this restaurant. The servers were very sweet but could not communicate. The flavor was very average, they forgot to bring one thing we ordered but the atmosphere was fun and authentic in appearance. One disturbing thing was two different pieces of sushi had alot of wasabi in the rice and we were very unpleasantly zapped with it. How did it get there and what else...
We love Ikenohana for two reasons: because the food is great and the food is authentic. Its a little divey and the decor is nothing special, but the food is top notch. This place is authentically Japanese and you can really taste the difference. If youre in the mood for Japanese cuisine, theres no better restaurant around to scratch your itch. Make sure to try the sashimi and the udon!
Couldnt get seated with open seats available. The staff felt like haters. I dont even care how good their food is... We left before ever even trying it because we were so disgusted and offended. We went to Bamboo Sushi in Portland instead and it was mind blowing delicious & simply phenomenal! Glad this beaverton place didnt turn out cause we found some place better (and nicer)!!
The food was excellent. The wait was a bit longer than I expected but well worth it. This place is like a traditional Japanese restaurant. If you are going here for a meal make sure you have plenty of time. It took about an hour and a half from order to meal. The food was excellent and the portions were very large. I might even say to large for single serving.
Nice small authentic Japanese spot. Been in business forever! Run by a group of older Japanese women who are extremely kind, friendly, and helpful. Sushi is great, bento meals are delicious. Love the Katsu curry and the Udon Suki. Can get pretty busy during weekend meal times and service can slow down a bit. Well worth the wait though!
Pleasantly surprised! Stopped in for lunch today for the first time. Salmon Bento lunch for less than $10, food was excellent. Service was prompt and they were very busy - in and out in less than 45 minutes. Lived here for eight years now just a few blocks away, and never stopped in until now. Will bring my family in very soon.

Very solid place for those who like both sushi, but also prefer the other dishes relatively traditional. A refreshing break from the endless fish on a train places, get one of their udon, a few nigiri, and youre set. Service is average but not spectacular, prices are on the high end of inexpensive. Will be going back for sure.
Very authentic Japanese food just like how my family makes it. I love taking my freinds and family to Ikenohana because of how cozy the inside is and how amazing the food is. Service is great, very freindly and respectful. The restaurant is close to Uwajimaya so you can grab some Japanese snacks and desserts after you eat!
This is our go-to non-ramen Japanese restaurant in Beaverton. Usually very crowded for dinner, but there are usually places available at the sushi bar. The extensive menu offers standard Japanese fare, but be sure to check out the white boards for daily dinner and sushi specials.
