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

I've had two very bad incidents in the past few months at this popular Chinese-run Japanese steak house. The first was when I received my credit card statement and noticed that the tip I had left was changed. I notified my credit card company who credited me for the difference, and I assumed that Hana was notified. Yet, months later... More

Stopped in at Hana for an appetizer, drinks and a few sushi rolls. The bacon wrapped shrimp were good and we tried the twisted roll and western avenue roll. One of our favorite places for sushi, always a sure thing.

We dined there last night to celebrate my son and his girlfriends birthdays. We had a great time watching the chef prepare our food at the habachi grill. Holy Hotness when he sets it on fire. The food was very good and cooked to order. We started out with the spicy tuna sushi. Yummy. Then we watched as he prepared... More
