Always reliable and reasonably priced. Good place to take the family. Sushi is fresh and the staff is very helpful. Both Branford and Clinton locations are great.

First time at Hanami 2; saw that it was rated #4 out of 120 restaurants in the area and had to try it. Walking into the restaurant and looking around, everything appears very clean and attended to....a very important point.....especially for the wife. The sushi (I ordered the sushi sashimi combo) was very good.....the fish was fresh and the portion... More

This was our first visit to Hanami II. What took us so long? In the midst of torrential rains today, we arrived to find an empty restaurant and decided against sushi on that basis. We won't make that mistake again! I had the lunch special of unagi on a bowl of rice, a favorite of mine, and it was the... More

Always prompt and courteous service! The sushi is the freshest in the area with special fly in's on the weekends so be sure to ask. This is an unassuming place from the outside with positively crisp and clean atmosphere on the inside. When I sit at the sushi bar I always get something complimentary :-)

We have never been to the parent restaurant in Clinton, but this restaurant is great. It is clean and very modern and the service is helpful and efficient. We had a variety of Sushi and Sashimi. The Smoked Eel Sushi was delicious and the scallop sashimi both fresh and "frozen" served with lemon slices in between was sweet and fresh.... More

We have been big fans of Hanami in Clinton ever since Ling and Irene took over the reins there several years ago. Saturday night we went to their brand new Hanami II in Branford and were delighted! The decor was a big and beautiful surprise - totally modernistic, clean lines and beautiful. The plating was beautiful and inviting as ever.... More
