This place is so great! My favorite Asian market for sure!\r
\r
I love going there whenever I can, because they carry pretty much anything you could want. Not just Japanese food, but a really good variety. The place looks and smells clean,

Great selection of Asian groceries, Japanese magazines, books etc. They recently opened a pastry puff stand that is to die for! Also love the sushi restaurant that's attached. Get your Asian fix here!

I could spend all day in this store. A good place to buy hard to find Asian cuisine. The ramen isle is HUGE!

I recently bought 3 doz raw oysters there for grilling and about 1/3 of them turned out bad. They cost $6.99/doz
Everything else in this store cost more than other asian shops, you should shop carefully.

Pros: There are oysters

Cons: They may be dead awhile in that tank

Uwajimaya as a store really is an amazing place. The selection is second to none, and there's the sushi retaurant Hakatamon (much, much better than the previous place Sambi, thank goodness) and the Japanese bookstore. I work near Uwajimaya and walk over often.

So what's up with the deli? They slop out possibly the worst Asian steam-tray dishes I have ever seen. I have made several attempts and I'm giving up. Everything's cooked into a beige mush, floating in oil. The chow mien I just got was greasy beyond belief. In an attempt to get something that was once alive I ordered the vegetables. Even they were a lost cause - they appeared to have been cooked at least a day before: the broccoli was literally shriveled and discolored.

I can strongly recommend Uwajimaya as a store for all things Asian (and Pacific Island) but for the love of all that's tasty they need to scrap the deli and start over. Even Safeway can do better!

Cons: the deli

This store will make you feel like you are in Japan. I have sent my Japanese co-workers there when they are here working. Highly recommend to thoes who want to do globe trotting without getting on a plane. The produce section is great.

I nearly cried when I first walked in. Just like Japan! Well, as close as you can get, anyway. The selection is amazing (and delicious). There's a little restaurant attached, and I highly recommend the yaki onigiri. Yum! They have tons of Asian grocery items, fresh produce, seafood, and baked goods. I could happily live there.

We love going there regularly and trying something new each time. We have discovered things that we wouldn't normally have with that approach.
It's fun-almost exciting to go there. It seems unusual and exotic.
if you are Portlander and haven't been you have to go.

A touch of the exotic orient in the middle of Portland. This is much more than a grocery store. You can find a wide variety of asian foods and be very adventurous. Stroll down the aisles and enjoy the sights. Lots of asian americans come here regularly. I also like the different festivals and celebrations they hold regulartly. Great spot, excellent seafood selection.

My young daughter clamours to go to Uwajumaya on the weekends because of their extensive Hello Kitty selection. My wife likes to browse in their bookstore that features Japanese stationery by Sanrio and San-X, and I like to peruse the various sauces and condiments that they have to offer. They have great deals on seafood, vegetables, and frozen items. Everything is fresh and organized by type of food. They have a place to eat takeout sushi and other lunch items and you can watch the huge tank of fish swimming around. They also have cooking classes so you can learn to make sushi at home!

When we have a craving for yakisoba, spam musubi, or char siu manapua, we head out to Uwajimaya! Uwajimaya keeps us stocked in all our hard-to-find Asian and Hawaiian favorites. GREAT selection of fresh produce too!

We love going to Uwajimaya! The store is so huge that you could wander around for quite a while; it is fun to do just that! You can find all kinds of products that you have never even heard of before. If you are looking for a certain ingredient in a new asian recipee, this is the place to go to find it. We like to buy seafood from there, because it is always super fresh and delicious! I highly recommend Uwajimaya!! They often have taste testing (samples) and other events.

Uwajimaya is an Asian food store with so much to pick from it is amazing!! I have sometimes gone there when I don't even need anything just to browse - not something I ordinarily do in a grocery store!

They have a wide range of products - mostly foods from Japan, China, etc. but also books, magazines, toys, treats, etc. My daughter loves to go and get the rice candies!

The food is always fresh - I have been disappointed in the quality of food I have purchased and we have been buying there for several years.

There is a ton of parking and it is very easy to find too.

I lived in Japan for a year, and when I miss it it's great to go to Uwajimaya. I like to buy bottled beverages, magazines, stationery, and snacks there - things that keep, so I don't have to make the long drive across town for a while. The restaurant in the corner is good - I love to stop in for some takoyaki! They also have a nice selection of dishes and kitchen items. The prices are very reasonable.

Uwajimaya Plaza is an Asian food market, or superstore might be more accurate. They sell a wide range of culinary delights such as Japanese, Filipino, Chinese, and several other ethnic varieties from the far east. Parking is excellent, the selection is outstanding, and the food quality is exceptional. You will want to return again and again.

This store is so impressive. There's tons to look at and lots of fun treats for anyone who likes Asian groceries. However, it is a bit hard to find some things if you don't read their languages on the packages!

Uwajimaya has the best seafood selection in the Portland area, I think--fresh (live) talapia, clams, oysters and crabs! The produce market carries many unusual items--all at reasonable prices!

this place is a pan-asian food wonderland! it is totally worth the field trip to beaverton. I reccomend going two days in a row, because, as if it were the disneyland of grocery stores, you just can take it in all in one day.

PROS: the ramen section alone is enough to make your whole day.
CONS:

Very fresh vegetables and fruits. service at cashier is good. but its difficult to find the exact product you want as their staff doesn't seem to know their own inventory.

This store carries most of the Asian foods for Koreans, Chinese, and Japanese people. The produce and seafood is high quality and the rest of the products are good also. The prices are a bit spendy, but it's definitely worth it for higher quality products. The lines go very quickly and the workers are very helpful.

I have to drive an hour from Salem to get the selection they have. Tried the restaurant and was pleased with the food and prices. Tried the striped bass sushi for the first time and it was delicious once you get past the slightly tough skin. Two people and a beer for $15; nice dinner.

Discovered Uwajimaya two years ago and have loved it ever since. Prices are a little high (though nothing compared to Japan). Book store is a wonderful find (especially for manga nuts). Highly recommend it.

From fresh sushi to imported stationary, movies, and books, Uwajimaya has the best selection of any Japanese- import store I've ever shopped at in my life! Some of the items are a little pricy (a *lot* pricy if you visit the bookstore), but the service and atmosphere are great. If you're into Japanese culture or food, this is definetely where you want to be.
