Established in Portland at a time when Japanese eateries were few and far between, Biwa introduced the concept of casual Japanese food to the city. Since then, it has only seen a rise in its regulars and counts among the top Japanese restaurants in the city. The kitchen not only embraces culinary traditions from Japan, but also adds its own takes from other Asian palates. Choose from a diverse menu of such delights as ramen, gyoza and udon. The Yakimono selection is the highlight of the menu and features choices in meats and seafood. There's also a little selection of sushi for those who can't imagine a Japanese meal without it. The wine selection is excellent and features great choice in whites and reds along with a small selection of rose wines. Sake and shochu is a specialty and the restaurant has one of the best selections in town. Head out to the intimate bar for the delightful flights on offer.
