There not much sushi or Japanese food around Clinton, CT and Hanami is the best of the food choices. We ate there today arriving about 10 mins before 3 expecting to eat lunch. We were the only customers in the place. The waitress delivered the dinner menu. When we inquired about lunch she told us it was too late and... More

We have been dining here since the opening several years ago. The sushi is always fresh, and tasty. The Bento box that I get for my 9 year old is perfectly balanced and ample. Almost too much since it comes with a salad and miso soup. The BMW roll is a huge roll with avocado and salmon-NO RICE. I love... More

No real atmosphere, but the food is reliably very good and service is excellent. Staff and the whole experience are relaxed and likable.

Comfortable atmosphere and excellent Japanese food. The bento box offerings are my favorites. Attentive waitresses. Their taste in background music could be questioned. Sometimes it is Japanese and fits the atmosphere, but sometimes is pretty weird--golden oldies, etc.

If you like Sushi you have to go to Hanami's. I could eat there every day and not get tired of it. I love the rolls and the service is very good.

From the min I walked in , I felt the two women hate their job...they handed me a lunch only menu and walked off. The lunch menu offeres to... More

We have been to Hanami many times and keep coming back for the consistently good food, both sushi and other, and the nice atmosphere. Our last visit this past Friday was business as usual. Good service, good food, good atmosphere. Our only complaint was a feeling of being rushed out this time. Our apps/sushi came quickly which was nice but... More

I take my son here a several times a year and always enjoy it. My son asks to go and I don't need convincing. Occasional lunch with friends too. They do a good job with both the standards as well as the creative rolls - you really can't go wrong. The bento boxes for lunch are a good value and... More

There were 4 for dinner. The sushi deluxe was a great looking dish with generous cuts of fish. The tuna roll had large chunks of tuna with less rice than usually - perfect! The sushi tastes fine but was a bit bland. The seaweed salad to start was very good but a bit pricey and the miso soup was a... More

My daughter and I have been here several times for Lunch -- the Sushi Lunch specials are plentiful and reasonably priced. Lunch specials are even available on Saturday. Service is friendly and attentive. Looking forward to visiting again when we're in the area.
