This is one of the best sushi restaurants around. It doesn't look as fancy as some of the Japanese restaurants downtown, but the food is excellent. My Japanese family goes for special occasions. It is pricier than some of the other sushi places but the quality is excellent. Some of the cheaper restaurants hide the taste of aging raw fish... More

I chose this restaurant due to the very high degree of consumer feedback on Trip Advisor. There were 12 reviews at the time of my visit, all either very good or excellent. Chose a variety of dishes and they were nothing but average. The prices were higher than comparable restaurant for the same dishes so I was expecting really great... More

Do not expect a fancy place so u do not have to pay for the fancy renovation but the food u get. If u look for Japanese restaurants that has a Japanese chef and there are repeated Japanese customers, Hanako is the place. Price is higher than the ones across the street or a few blocks away, BUT u get... More

After reading some great reviews decided to try this restaurant. Small, decor bare necessities. Waitress unable to answer any inquiries, had to leave us and find out answer to our questions, food really mediocre. Miso soup a disappointment, no flavour and had a couple of prawn heads (no meat on it) floating in soup???? Again, looking forward to dining here... More

Had many rolls and black cod was good. Scallop and spicy tuna rolls are very good. Restaurant is pretty small only 26 seats but quality and service is great.

The atmosphere just feelt shy overal and I couldn't help but feel a feeling of sadness for it. But I got a good end so is... More

Every bite was an absolute pleasure. Loved the salmon, tuna, and tempura. It's a pretty small and comfortable place - definitely not pretentious. Also - wonderful service!

We came to this restaurant because a friend we were with suggested it... and she wasn't wrong, our friend is Japanese and she said that the food tastes like back in Japan so we were delighted by the flavour of the food and the good service provided by the staff. It is a good option for couples and families.

I have been eating at Hanako since it turned into a Sushi Restaurant from a previous Baskin Robins. I used to live on the same street, and while I missed my ice cream, Hanako has been an amazing addition to Surrey. The Sushi Chef is a permanent fixture in his own restaurant and it is a RARE occasion that he... More
