I went this place with a friend who has a beach house in Oxnard and goes there every time she and her husband come in town. I liked this place. Casual, small place owned by a Japanese couple. I ordered chef's choice, Omakase course, which I thought had less selections of fish than those I get at other places. Especially,... More

Tried several sushi places in Oxnard, they were all disappointing and serving American-Japanese sushi. Tonight, after a day of deep sea fishing, I wanted some Japanese food to-go. I called Sushi Hanada, attempting to order food for carry out. They said "no, I must eat there." So I dragged myself and DH to the small unassuming restaurant. We were not... More

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
