The fish is always fresh and the preparation is perfect. Large selection of sushi, sashimi, and more. Always lots of specials in addition to the regular menu. One of my favorite dishes is the seafood spaghetti served with fresh lettuce salad and miso soup to start. Servers are very attentive even when very busy. If you want authentic and very... More

I enjoy their appetizer specials, announced on the board: the tender Grilled Squid drizzled with a sweet sauce, the moist but nicely cooked Salmon Cheeks, the Spicy Octopus. We like the Sushi and Sashimi --their loyal clientele and large crowds ensure a rapid turnover (and freshness) in the fish and seafood. I often have the Chirashi Sushi (a bowl of... More

... not just good. I've been going to Niwano Hana for 20+ years. I've never once had a meal that was less than EXCELLENT. It's always fresh, from the raw fish to a piece of lettuce. My 5 star rating is for the food and the staff, who are always friendly and attentive. Yes, it is a little crowded especially... More

Went for lunch. Thankfully didn't have to wait for a table. Large selection of sashimi, sushi, and rolls along with other traditional Japanese fare. Quality food, well-presented, prompt and friendly service. Wonderful, tasty meal and we were in and out in less than an hour as you would expect at lunchtime. Will return for sure. Lunch for 2 cost $40,... More

Average small Japanese sushi restaurant. We were seated quickly, but our group of 7 was the max this place could handle. OK sashimi platter, shrimp & veg tempura, soft shell crab, beef sukiyaki and chicken teriyaki. Had a good time with the family. Did not try any of the rolls since we are somewhat of purists. To say this place... More

In a very non inviting shopping mall there is this Japanese restaurant. Crowdy, noisy , very good and quick service and the food.... Oh it was so good. The seaweed salad was fresh and tasty and the 12 pieces of sashimi -yellowtail,red Tina and salmon-we're fresh and excellent. We haven't been in Japan but we have eaten in a lot... More

For authentic Japanese food, it is a must go. Been there twice and will be back again. Had Bento box for lunch once and their sushi bar is outstanding. My wife is Japanese and she knows good sushi. This one is.

I brought some friends from out of town for dinner. Feedback was, " Their cuisine is among the best tasting Japanese food I ever had, as authentic as the ones I had in Japan." Freshest seaweed and sashimi cuts. Most flavorful udons and unagis. And service? I got a phoned in reservation within half an hour of dinner in a... More

We usually go here at least once an year. The sushi is fresh, good quality and the service is friendly. The prices are average. We had a party of 5 for 6:30PM on a Sat. in mid Aug. We arrived early and were seated right away. The place is small about 70 at max. They only have tables for 2... More
