Good service and food

I hadn't been back to this place in years and was glad it was 1) still in business (and doing well from the looks of it) and 2) the quality and value was still good. Beer and sake specials kept us smiling and the sashimi platter of 15 pieces was good. Some rolls were better than others (like most... read more

My husband went here on my birthday with a birthday club coupon and had a great time. We got the calamari appetizer then I got shrimp tempura and my husband got the beef with sushi plate. We were so delighted, we got sushi to go before we left!

My family and I live near Hanaoka's and have been eating there regularly for more than twenty years. We always see people we know as it is a popular neighborhood place that welcomes families, even with small children. The food is excellent for the price, the servers very friendly, and the service fast unless you are with a large group,... More

I recently stopped by to have lunch. The lunch portions are plentiful, the staff was attentive and friendly. Chicken teriyaki is delicious. Hot green tea was perfect for a cold afternoon. Restaurant is located on Sweetwater Rd and in front of MOR furniture. Ample parking. Family friendly establishment. Well worth the visit while your in the National City area.

This Japanese restaurant serves some outstanding options for lunch or dinner, even sushi and sashimi, at reasonable prices. There is a broad menu to choose from, more than enough for rookies to Japanese cuisine, or even a native diner. Portions are generous and well prepared --very tasty! Repeat business comes easy...

Customer service is always the best. Happy hour beer and lunches. Sushi is not over priced like some places. They are all Japanese. They greet everyone coming in the door. We have been coming here for 2 years now. They serve the best Bonita sushi roll, spicy crab roll and pizza roll! Best to drink the Sapporo beer taste so... More
