Located in Goose Hollow, Ichiza Kitchen offers vegan pan-Asian cuisine and rare oolong teas in an intimate environment.
ICHIZA MEANS ONE SITTING or the zen principle of stopping to contemplate one's path. At Ichiza, we aim to serve your entire order in one sitting, allowing you to fully experience the pairing of our food and tea.
We strive to provide non-GMO "good for you and the planet" vegan food. You are what you eat, so we love what you eat. Fake meat saves lives!

Since opening, we have had the opportunity to serve our favorite dishes to all kinds of people,
including some food writers in the Portland area. They loved our food, and we love to share their reviews.
PORTLAND OREGON’S LGBT TASTEMAKERS: CHEFS, DISTILLERS, BAKERS, AND MORE!
Cyrus Ichiza, Chef, Ichiza Kitchen
“Portland’s culture really values inclusivity and solidarity with all those involved in the cultivation and production of food. This is really important as a vegan chef, because I’m trying to encourage folks to be open to plant-based proteins and meat alternatives whose impact is broadly related to reducing climate change and other forms of environmental degradation…”
IS PORTLAND'S VEGAN SCENE THE BEST IN AMERICA?
"Since January 2017, Portland welcomed a vegan-dedicated doughnut shop (Doe Donuts), a vegan tiki bar (No Bones Beach Club), a spot specializing in vegan plates eaten by Japanese buddhist monks (Ichiza Kitchen and Teahouse), a guilty pleasure pizzeria (Virtuous Pie), and a vegan take on Israeli food (Aviv)..."
PORTLAND'S BEST TEAHOUSES
"Everything is thoughtful here, from the beautiful teacups to the oolong tea service. Knowledgable waitstaff can guide patrons through the lengthy menu of teas, like Taiwanese 'Blue People' or the 2017 Harvest Dan Cong 'Duck Shit'..."
ICHIZA KITCHEN & TEA HOUSE BRINGS TOKYO TO HERBIVORES
There are certain dishes that excel for omnivores and herbivores alike, especially the take on a Filipino Orchid Pancit ($11). An ongoing special—a take on dim sum rice noodle rolls ($5)—incorporates smoky 'pork' for a satisfying bite. Pan-fried and steamed turnip cakes ($6) are a faithful dim sum favorite done right, with a sweet and savory shiitake mushroom dipping sauce..."

ENJOY PLANT-BASED ASIAN CUISINES
"Open less than a year, this small, vegan pan-Asian restaurant subscribes to the theory that long noodles equal a long life. You can try a 'tonkotsu' ramen with faux pork slices, a version of the Japanese kitsune udon, and the restorative lan zhou, a medicinal noodle soup that is great for winter woes..."
ICHIZA KITCHEN BRINGS PAN-ASIAN VEGAN SMALL PLATES TO GOOSE HOLLOW
"The vegan meats appear in pan-Asian dishes like Lan Zhou beef noodles, shrimp-topped tea leaf salad, and chicken adobo marinated in coconut vinegar black soy sauce. It’s possible to order one large entrée, but you’re best served filling up on several thoughtful small plates—think bean curd skin, spicy tuna onigiri, sesame broccoli, and kimchi mung bean cakes.

Do you accept reservations?
Ichiza Kitchen does not accept reservations and will seat all parties in order of arrival. We cannot accept parties greater than six due to our capacity limitations. If there is a wait for a table when you arrive at Ichiza Kitchen, just add your party’s information to our waitlist and one of our staff will call and/or text you when your table is ready. Your entire party must be present in order to be seated. In the event we cannot immediately reach you, we will hold the table for 10-15 minutes before releasing it to the next party on the waitlist.
We cannot add parties to the waitlist over the phone.
How long is the wait for a table?
Wait times will vary depending on how many parties are ahead of you on the waitlist and your party size. Generally, you can expect to wait anywhere from 30 - 60 minutes on our busiest evenings. We generally have a waitlist for a table during dinner hours.
During your wait, you are welcome to visit Vtopia Vegan Cheese Shop & Deli next door or any of the few bars (The Leakey Roof, Goose Hollow Inn, etc.) that are all located within walking distance from Ichiza Kitchen while you wait.
Do you accept take out or delivery orders?
We do not accept take out orders during dinner hours and on weekends (4:30 pm Friday - end of day Sunday). We suggest you call in advance to see if we are accepting take out orders at that time as we may be able to accommodate some take out requests based on our capacity to serve our in-house customers. If we do not answer the phone, it is most likely that we are busy serving our in-house customers and we wouldn’t be able to accommodate a take out order anyway. We apologize for the inconvenience, but we have a very small kitchen and we do not want to compromise the experience of dining at Ichiza Kitchen for our in-house customers by taking on take out orders during our busiest times.
At this time, we do not partner with any delivery service. If we do, we will be sure to let our customers know through our website and social media.
