Traditional Japanese Favorites from Local Ingredients

Hokusei is proud to provide Southeast Portland, and surrounding areas the ultimate experience in traditional Japanese sushi and cuisine. Expect bold flavors with an emphasis on freshness, using seasonal Northwest and Japanese ingredients whenever possible, specializing in Japanese fish.

Executive Chefs Cody Auger and Lance Dillard team up to create traditional Japanese dishes yet to be approached by Portland’s restaurants.   Our Omakase meaning "chef's choice" are unique dishes using only the highest quality ingredients that result in premium freshness and taste.

“It’s refreshing to have Chef Lance Dillard join our team. His knowledge of sushi and creativity is delightful. He has the skills to produce traditional favorites to satisfy even the most discerning palate, says Manager Casey Saechao, “We are excited to have him on board with us”.

Located in Southeast Portland’s Belmont neighborhood, just a few blocks away from busy coffee shops, tea house, restaurants and bars.

Voted Portland Monthly's "Best New Sushi Restaurant 2012" and "Best New Restaurant 2013" from Citysearch!



"This is comparable, finally, to the good sushi bars in LA, SF, or Seattle. If you're a transplant and you've lamented the lack of good sushi places here in Portland, this is your answer and your hallelujah moment."
