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

Their friendliness makes the atmosphere. We've eaten here many times and it's consistently good. With no hesitation we decide to eat there any time. Sushi is fresh, egg rolls are good... It's one of our favorite restaurants in the neighborhood.

The sushi was not the best, and the price was not worth it either, i can get 8 rolls at a sushi spot a bit further for the same price and are so much better than for the 4 i bought here.Crunchy rolls were too dry, had way too much crunch and were very small portions. Not worth it..

We ate here a couple of days ago. I ordered the lunch special with california roll and chicken teriyaki. The chicken was extremely tough and dry, the california roll looked like it had been sitting for a while, including very grey looking avocado. The lettuce in the salad was wilted and dark. I didn't say anything because we were in... More
