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

My husband went here on my birthday with a birthday club coupon and had a great time. We got the calamari appetizer then I got shrimp tempura and my husband got the beef with sushi plate. We were so delighted, we got sushi to go before we left!

I hadn't been back to this place in years and was glad it was 1) still in business (and doing well from the looks of it) and 2) the quality and value was still good. Beer and sake specials kept us smiling and the sashimi platter of 15 pieces was good. Some rolls were better than others (like most places)... More

My family and I live near Hanaoka's and have been eating there regularly for more than twenty years. We always see people we know as it is a popular neighborhood place that welcomes families, even with small children. The food is excellent for the price, the servers very friendly, and the service fast unless you are with a large group,... More
