Where are the legit, authentic Japanese restaurants in the Portland area? Preferably that have some vegan stuff on the menu. Asking for a friend, whose Japanese mother is coming to visit next month.

I've heard that Chef Nakano on Jefferson is the real deal.  www.chefnakano.com

Chef Naoko. Dinner is only Weds, Thurs, Fri. and the pace is very slow here (not inattentive, just that dishes take time to get to the table). We love this place and go often.

Thanks @Angelhair and @jennifer - Kalé and Chef Naoko both look delicious.
