Five of us went to Hana for my grand daughters birthday and enjoyed the hibachi. We sampled the chicken, steak, shrimp and lamb. All were quite good and like other Japanese restaurants we have been to. Much of the fun for this type of occasion is watching the food preparation and our chef did not let us down.

We had always seen this place with its purple lights, and one day me and my friends decided to check it out. We werent disappointed. They had great drinks, and delicious sushi. It was a tad expensive, but after a few beers that didnt bother us too much. The service was average but the food was great.

I wanted Japanese for lunch and Hana sounded perfect. When we arrived my thoughts changed We should have ate here for dinner. The place looks fun for an evening event for you and friends or as a couple. However, The food was really good and we had great service. Will definitely be coming back.

My friend recommended Hana to use a couple of years ago and my husband and I have been hooked ever since. In fact, one of my coworkers regularly gets me giftcards for my birthday now. :) The atmosphere is great....packed bar and tables at all times. The hibachi is great for a larger group and we usually go for birthdays... More

I enjoyed this place. I think the owners are Chinese, but they do good Japanese and Japanese-like food. Their sushi roll combinations are tasty and clever, and the sushi was good. The teppanyaki looked really good. Not super-authentic (I saw lamb chops on the grill) but it looked really delicious (I saw lamb chops on the grill...) You don't have... More

So I ended up going to Hana twice in a month because it was so good! The first time I went was for a light dinner, I split the James Bond sushi roll and a vegetable tempura app with a friend. It was delicious and well presented. It came up that I had never done hibachi before, so my friend... More

Some of my colleagues in office recommended it and therefore I landed at Hana to enjoy my dinner with a friend. We went for Hibachi and I must confess, it was a experience on its own. Being a Vegetarian, got me served first. How Nice. Asked for their recommendation on drinks, and again Sapporo Sake Bomb was spot on. Beer... More

Hana offers classic Japanese cuisine, done correctly and well, with the freshest ingredients carefully prepared. Among the ubiquitous "Japanese steakhouse" places, Hana's teppanyaki (steel-plate-grilled food) is fully competent. Their sushi and sashimi are even better, with fresh, clean flavors and eye-pleasing presentations.
