“Duluth's Best Sushi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

The outside of Hanabi is kind of sketchy -- you wouldn't expect the food to be nice at all. However, once you walk through the doors you realize this isn't the case. It's extremely trendily designed and easily has the most expensive, best tasting Sushi in the North.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Very tasty sushi and other Japanese cuisine. Not too pricey. Fun to order a variety and share amongst your group.

“The best sushi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I really did not like sushi I had in other places, but when a friend invited me to go to lunch there, I imagined I could find something else to eat.

I went with my friend's sushi recommendations. It was so divine!

I cannot recommend it enough.

Parking is a hassle though

“great lunch and happy hour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

cocktails are over priced. used to have a great bartender, professional, friendly made a solo happy hour fun. Sushi is excellent! compares above the most any where. prices very high. uni nigirii $14, ridiculous. most rolls are interesting but too mayo oriented. Sushi bar is unused and designed so that chefs are above you so you cant interact with chef or watch preparations. they have a server bring your sushi when you are seated at sushi bar. not the point right?

servers are not memorable. i used to go often sit at the liquor bar to have a sushi bar atmosphere as a solo diner. Duluth needs to serve individual diners better than it does. Hanabi should provide a better sushi bar experience.

“Good sushi. Best prices during lunch...sketchy neighbors”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

We enjoy the lunches here-- selecting the 3 sushi rolls (get to choose) for about ten dollars for lunch, pass on the miso soup. the salad is prepackaged lettuce with the wasabi dressing; both are easy to pass on--but the spicy crab rolls are very good and the eel rolls are enjoyed by my family whole wont otherwise eat eel!

Inside its dark and just okay for atmosphere, while outside the signage is lacking. And although the restaurant is a place I enjoy, I am not fond of the area orthe hillside parking. The place is out of the Main Street traffic on a one way street going up the hill--and across the street from the homeless hangout-- my family, who lives in Duluth, felt the area sketchy and didn't want to walk alone at night. That said, try it for lunch or happy hour and it is a better feeling in the neighborhood.
