This was one of the first restaurants we found in Ocean Co. NJ when we first moved here 23 years ago and we CONTINUE to go there because they offer the BEST sushi (outside Japan!), the freshest and most delicious fish and other tasty items (the gyoza and pepper-tuna are to die for!), and their hibachi is plentiful! And the... More

Hana is my family's go-to place for sushi. My daughter used to sleep in her car seat here as my husband and I ate--she started eating rice and California rolls before she could walk! She's now a teenager and we've seen many changes over the years. But the good food and friendly service has never changed. My family enjoys sitting... More

By far the worst hibachi experience ever! Before I give you specifics I want to preface this by saying I work in the restaurant industry and my husband manages a business that's main focus is customer service. We went here on a Friday night, had an 830 reservation and didn't get seated until 9. The waitress was nice, but was... More

We had a Delightful Sunday evening dinner celebrating our daughter's Marathon run. The owner, Jack, was gracious and wanted to make sure everything was good. It was.

Over the years, my family has often come to Hana to celebrate a special occasion, as we did on this particular Sunday. Reservations used to be necessary, so the Eagle called at 1:50 PM to reserve for myself and 3 companions, only to hear a recording that the restaurant opened at 2:30. I tried again at 2:10 and got the... More

You know why this is the best Japanese restaurant for me? I find it so amusing to stay in the tea room where you feel the Japanese feeling. You sit with a low table and your feet goes down a lower opening, you feel like dining in a Japanese home. I have arthritic knees already so I find it a... More

Made a 6:30 pm hibachi table reservation for two Saturday night. Arrived on time and was told, sorry no hibachi table. No apology, nothing. Drove 1/2 hour for nothing. The women was rude, abrupt and could care less. They had only 1 hibachi chef working on a Saturday night. Needless to say every other restaurant was packed so we drove... More

I am a regular here and can honestly say this is the best hibachi I ever had. Everything is amazing from the miso soup, to the salad, fried rice, noodles, and high quality steak. I also enjoy the atmosphere as well as the staff.

When I moved away from the area 8 years ago, Hana was one of those restaurants you'd swear you wouldn't find in a new location. Well, I did find a great place for the past 8 years, but it was a thrill coming back to the area and finding the great service, quality and value of a place you remember... More
