Hanamaru offers some different options including maki wrapped in cucumber (if you’re not eating rice), as well as some plays on sushi fusion like the “Joy Special” roll coated in jalapeño-flavored masago (fish roe) and others brushed with sweet/spicy sauces like the “Firecracker Special” roll. My very favorite thing to order is their "Temaki" (hand roll) salmon skin because the... More

I can recommend Hanamaru. It is not the RItz, but it is clean and the waitstaff attentive. The Sushi Chefs are Japanese, and they are Big Japanese guys. They are in charge. The sushi is not the best I have had but it is VERY GOOD for the PRICE. The Sushi Sashimi combo is Good for $26. Comes with Miso... More

This place may not be fancy, but it offers very good sushi, with a great variety of rolls and sashimi combos, at a reasonable price. The service is always very friendly, also when you go take-away.

We go to Hanamaru at least twice a month. This is definitely my favorite sushi place on the bay area, and I go there for over 5 years. We tried pretty much all the rolls. My favorite one is the Awesome Hanamaru, which is a deep fried California roll with their special hot sauce on the top. My Wife's favorite... More

Hanamaru is a local favorite of ours. The food is reasonably priced and always fresh. Try their spicy-tuna roll.

This is a great local Japanese restaurant that is not stuffy. Friendly service and good food. Large roll selection and hot food is good. Donburi is good and I like the bento box - good portions. Highly recommend this local casual place. Prices are reasonable - not too pricey.

I come here once in a while to treat myself to some delicious sushi. They have a great selection of rolls and they're all delicious! I HIGHLY recommend the Harley Davidson roll. The name doesn't sound very good, but it looks and tastes a lot better. Try to come during off peak hours. The place is not very big and... More

It took a couple coworkers to convince me to try this place out - but so glad they did! I was initially judging this restaurant to be exactly what it looked like from the outside: a small sushi restaurant in a shopping center mall in Nowheresville [I mean: Sunnyvale], CA. Anywho, we walked into a packed restaurant and enthusiastically greeted... More
