A very small, fun restaurant. If you are down for a food mixup, this is a great option. You won't find anything like this place in the Portland area. We purposely starved ourselves all day so we could try as much of the menu as possible and we were not disappointed by any of it!
So incredibly good!! My brother in law loves Japanese culture and told us we all needed to try Miami. I had no expectations but I have to say it was awesome! We ordered every appetizer (no shame) and they were all delicious!! Highly recommend!!
The food was absolutely delicious, probably some of the best Japanese food I have had in the US. My partner and I order the takoyaki and gyudon. The atmosphere was very cozy and relaxing. The staff was also very friendly!!
I absolutely loved it. I'm Japanese and I lived in Japan until when I was 13 years old. I came to United States about 8 years ago and I've tried many Japanese restaurants but this place is definitely on top of it. I'm very pleased that how high the quality of foods and price. If you are looking for some comfort food and love Japanese food, I will recommend this Mami!
Some of the best food in the city.
absolutely the best karaage I’ve had in a while!! wonderful service and nice interior.
Great food and excellent service! Will definitely be back!
Told the waiter I COULD NOT have dairy…After the amazing soba noodles and fried rice ball I thought I had enjoyed a meal without any stomach problems but I was mistaken. It was about an hour drive back home from Portland and with 20 minutes left of the drive my stomach HURT. I wanted to title this “I WAS POISONED” because that’s truly how I felt. Situations like this discourage me from going out to eat/eating in general. :( this was my second time at MAMI and I’ll probably go again tbh I F-ing love those soba noodles. Next time I’ll have to be extra clear I guess!
While not everything here was perfectly executed, I was still introduced to some Japanese flavors and combinations I hadn't had before, and was very happy. I would probably give out a four star rating, but it seems this place is a bit new, and I definitely want to see it survive. My katsu sandwich was a wonderful combination of flavors I haven't tasted before, but it was very heavy and make the bottom piece of bread soggy and fall apart. The meat on the boyfriend's bowl was excellent. Our appetizers were perfect bites and delicious. I don't understand the paper plates and bowls, but maybe that's temporary. There was also very unexpected music and a vibe I didn't expect, but made for a great overall experience. This was probably the best food I've ever had in Portland.
This place is AWESOME! The grilled rice ball to start was superb. Then the Gyudon was fantastic and to finish the blueberry mochi cake was perfect!
Undecided where and what to eat? Go to Mami. Close your eyes. Point at a random spot on the menu. You'll be impressed.
Great place to eat. The salmon was amazing. We were very pleased with the food and service.
A great place for a beer and snack food/appetizers. I get the octopus balls pretty much every time and they have never disappointed. The cabbage pancake is another solid winner in my book.
