On a trip to Vancouver Washington we toured along the norther Oregon Coast. One day we stopped for lunch in Seaside Oregon and found Tora Sushi Lounge. It’s a great location right near the beach so we were sure to have fresh fish. The roads in the older part of town are very narrow but Tora is right on the corner and you can park across the street by the hardware store. The restaurant is decorated pretty cool with authentic looking Japanese artwork and pieces. We were served quickly and the food was super fresh and super tasty. It was a momentous occasion as my wife tried and successfully ate her first sushi roll. For some time I have been trying to convince her that sushi isn’t just raw fish and that there would be some sushi that she’d actually like. The Spicy Scallop roll in soy paper was the roll that did it. Nothing too grand, but still a first step.
I was very pleased with the overall quality of Tora Sushi Lounge. I expected fresh tasting ingredients and I wasn’t disappointing. Everything tasted and looked fresh!
The restaurant looks like it’s been open for some time yet the furnishings were fairly new and I didn’t see anything obvious. There are a lot of decorations in this place and with the constant beach sand it could become a problem but I didn’t notice anything that gave me cause for concern.
The service was good. We were one of the first ones in for the evening service and though we had a small wait to order our food came out fairly quickly. The waitress wasn’t overly nice or inquisitive but provided service with a smile. A little more friendliness could go a long way.
The price is typical for a sushi restaurant for a tourist area. They have a happy hour with actually very reasonably priced rolls and sashimi. I wasn’t disturbed by the price and found that I could get a fair selection at rather reasonable prices.
