This is one of the best sushi bars we've ever eaten, and one like no others. At first we were set back by the distinct smell of the fish as we entered the restaurant, but the food made us forget all about it. The menu is not very diverse, but everything we sampled tasted excellent.

Sushi and sashimi plate, chef's choice, was very good and will satisfy the aficionados. Tempura (hard for some places in the US to perfect) was notable. Grilled salmon was tasty. But... not everything was perfect. The miso soup was very acceptable by American standard but was not served piping hot like in Japan. Maybe a concession to American taste? But... More

Had a great meal two separate times...kids loved it and friendly staff. More of a traditional Japanese menu, not really a lot of funky rolls, just straight sushi but good and fresh.

Stopped in during the one night we were in Oxnard on our way down the Coast. What a great find! Hubs is a sushi fiend and he declared it "great". They even served Uni that he said was very fresh. Very friendly staff and the restaurant is extremely clean.

If Sushi Hanada was in LA or any big city in the US, you would have a big line outside or a only reservation restaurant place, instead Chef Hanada chose a small town, that's why is packed on the weekend but ok during the week. Service is great and Sushi is Fresh. Beef tatake appetizer is to die for. I... More

Chef Hanada is a maestro, this is not the place to get your California Rolls, but the true Tokyo Sushi. Fantastic

Sushi Hanada is truly a hidden gem within Oxnard. For any true traditional Japanese sushi fans or connoisseurs you'll fall in love with the food right away. First, to see a tokyo style sushi restaurant (tokyo edo-mae sushi) in this day and age in southern california is truly rare. You can tell this right away because there is a small... More

This is a japanese family owned restaurant that serves traditional sushi; not the fancy mixed fish rolls with names like rainbow roll. They serve high quality sushi. The rice is very good. Mr. Hanada prepares the rice in a certain way that makes it perfect. The fish melts in your mouth; it does not matter which one, tuna, salmon, yellow... More

This place is the hidden gem of PH. It is in a strip mall next to a "massage" parlor, but don't let that keep you away. This place is family owned and run. It is extremely high quality traditional Japanese sushi/food. If you are within driving distance you should definitely go. The crab roll appetizers are amazing, the tofu salad... More

Definitely not your typical sushi bar with all the themed rolls.. This neighborhood mom & pop shop features a small selection of sushi. However, the entrees are delicious. And the jazz music makes this restaurant one of a kind.
