Hanabi Restuarant, Brentwood. Not the usual Sushi restuarant accostomed to eating in. Don't sit in the middle section or you will get the surliest waitress ever. Others explained, she "was new". Afterwards, felt like a fight with a samurai. Poorest slowest service ever. No hot towels delivered. The eldery gentleman, possibly owner was nice. The do not offer decaffinated drinks... More

Hanabi is located within walking distance of some hotels in Brentwood and definitely the top choice in a strip mall with many fast food restaurants. We had dinner there and saw more diners here than in all other restaurants combined. The menu is extensive and offers more than the standard sushi and sashimi items. We enjoyed our meal with Bento...

I ate here yesterday as always my sushi was ver good. There are a couple new chefs and the do an excellent job just as they all do. I am always made to feel welcome and they truly seem to appreciate my business. I can't believe the number of people who work in Brentwood that don't know about this gem.... More

The sushi was just ok, not great. They are not located in a shopping center that was easy to find. Huge menu. Not a lot of people there on a Saturday night. We went there because others rated this place great, us, not so much.

Hanabi has great, fresh, delicious sushi - no more needs to be said. I sat at the sushi bar, and wondered why there wasn't a waiting line out the door. This place needs to be a lot more popular. Please visit Hanabi - and enjoy the nigiri and maki! I'm sure the other food is fine as well, given the... More

First off, this is the most friendly wait staff at any restaurant I've ever been to. The wasabi dumplings for an appetizer are fantastic. My husband doesn't eat sushi and he had the beef teriyaki, the vegetables were fresh and well cooked and the miso soup was "the best miso I've ever had". It was really good. Great variety of... More

Good variety but a lot of the food or preparation of the food seems to be too Americanized. Was hoping for more authentic Japanese dishes prepared with less salt and less sweet tastes.

We always try to go to Hanabi's when we're in the mood for sushi. The place is well appointed, clean and has a friendly atmosphere about it. From the owner on down to the servers, everyone is very friendly. They do a great job with their specialty rolls. For example, the Philadelphia rolls and Samurai rolls are really good. The... More
