Offering sushi, tempura and box meals at discount prices, this is the place to go for Japanese cuisine. It is less crowded than the more popular Southeast restaurants closer to downtown, but it is hard to understand why. With its plain exterior and inexpensive prices, some aficionados may predict a lack of quality, but one glance at the sushi bar will change that. The fish is fresh and expertly prepared. The atmosphere is casual yet traditional. Try the house favorite sushi rolls - Unagi (barbecued eel), Saba (mackerel) and Tobiko (flying fish roe). Beer and sake are available.

A fun place to hang out with friends, Oasis Cafe is literally an oasis in the midst of the busy Portland streets. It is counter service only at this casual cafe. Choose from such specialty pizzas as Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, a popular vegetarian pizza, or the Tuscany Crusher - feta, artichoke hearts, onions and tomatoes, with olive oil and garlic replacing tomato sauce. Among the non-vegetarian options, the Bandido and Magic Capet are worth writing home about. If you do not want pizza, the calzones and salads are hearty. Save some room, because this pizza joint has exceptionally good cakes and cheesecakes.
Gorge on traditional Indian recipes at India Grill Restaurant. A treat for the famished, the curries here are definitely what this Indian restaurant is all about.
