Delicious rolls... even at closing time

Really enjoyed our sushi - sat right up at the bar and watched the chefs do their magic. The service was good despite the fact that it was late and they were beginning to close up. The negative to the experience was that they told us they only accepted cash... not sure if it was because it was... read more

This is the best place to have sushi. We came here for my wife's birthday and couldn't have been happier. The food is outstanding, the door is nice and the service incredible. We will definently be back again.

Went here with Mom and since I'm a vegetarian the fish was out. The service was so so and so was the food.

It's set back from the road so you need to make sure you don't miss it. My first reaction was how clean the restaurant is (including the bathroom!). First rate and attentive service. Delicious food...sushi...hibachi...all of it. You will not be disappointed.

We have been to this restaurant several times. At all times it has always been very good. For me, there is nothing like taking food fresh off the grill and plopping it in your mouth. Yum! This past time was exceptional with my getting the filet and lobster. The fried rice, noodles, and shrimp appetizer were delicious. The filet and... More

Great service, probably one of the cleanest restaurants I've ever been in and most of all the food is great. .Noodle bowls and the sushi 2nd to none. I've been in Japan several times so you can take my word for it. You can also bring your family for Hibachi and I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

I was unaware of this restaurant even though it was just a few towns away but when my son suggested it for a family dinner for the eight of us, I looked forward to the Hibachi style which I always enjoyed but hadn't been to in years. I don't know the last time I rated a restaurant with an Excellent... More

Our family always looks forward to hibachi at Hanami! I usually have the hibachi chicken, which is awesome. It comes with miso soup, salad, rice, vegetables, chicken, and two pieces of shrimp. The miso soup is delicious, and the salad is always fresh and tasty (with great salad dressing). They give you two dishes of sauce, and I highly recommend... More

We were hungry today and couldn't bear the thought of a highway rest stop. Seeing a sign for the Clinton Premium Outlets we figured there would be someplace to have an 'upgraded' meal. Obviously we weren't familar with this type of 'village'. No place to eat besides an outdoor stand. Oh yeah, it was 28 degrees out! We decided to... More

Amazing special rolls. Wide variety, including many that are vegetarian. Some of the rolls change with the seasons (I had a pumpkin delite roll that was amazing). For those who prefer cooked items, there are many rolls that start with a tempura shrimp and add on from there. In addition to the sushi, there is a very large menu of... More
