Fun Sat nite dinner

Been there before, but not again. Had the unfortunate experience with new friends to this restaurant just last week, of being told one thing and it being retracted once we were there and then they wouldn't budge on it......they ALSO falsely advertised their happy-hour specials then wouldn't honor that either, once you arrive. Both happened in the SAME NIGHT. Some... More

The food is okay, but beware of the "coupons." They public coupons everywhere - local Clipper magazines, online, etc. but you can hardly ever use them. If you order one thing that is considered a Happy Hour deal (drinks OR food) that is considered a "special offer" and all coupons are void. Basically, my husband and I were not able... More

My daughter requested we try a hibachi restaurant for her birthday dinner. After reading the reviews on Tripadviser we decided to try Hana. The atmosphere was fun, the food was very good, and the staff was excellent.

they served our order of rolls without the crab, and refused to replace it. This used to be a favorite bar hang out for us, we haven't been back since. This place might as well be Sears, we do not even consider it.

The food was amazing. The service was friendly and prompt. We have eaten at many Japanese steakhouses but this is our new favorite. I just wish there was on in Raleigh.

It's not a huge issue but numerous friends have said to watch the check for over charging. My wife and kids love it here so I've never really looked. Well that changed tonight. When I questioned the over charge I was told I was wrong and was told dish is AROUND 25-26 dollars. I was annoyed so I paid, on... More

We spent two nights in Albany and ate both dinners at this restaurant. We had an excellent waitperson and she helped us select food from the menu. We had Ma Pa Tofu, salmon, sushi and tempura and it was the best we have ever eaten. We're from Boston and have gone to many fine restaurants, but this is the best... More

We weren't disappointed in our dinner there last night. A bit different than other Hibachi restaurants that I have been to, but still good. We had the misso soup, clear soup and salad, all were very good. For the Hibachi dinner itself we had a choice of brown rice or noodles, both were good. There was the vegetables, were done... More
