The ramen was delicious and the sushi was really good. My teriyaki chicken lunch special was just ok. The chicken was not hot when it came out, but the flavor was good. The service was great and everyone was really friendly. We are glad we found this place on our vacation.

You are always welcomed into Hanaoka with greetings from all the servers. The specials are very reasonable, quick to be served, and there's a lot of food. The food is fresh and delicious, and the servers very friendly. We like to go there for lunch.

We found this restaurant thanks to all the reviews on TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed. The service was fantastic and very quick. Even better, the seafood and sushi was fresh. They had beer and sake specials. My father and daughter can be picky eaters, but they found several choices on the menu. Love being on vacation, but get so... More
