I visit quite regularly with my children and they love it. The service is quick and the wait staff is friendly. I've never had an issue with any of the food and I love that it is always super clean!

My low expectations of Japanese restaurants had kept me from eating at this restaurant...I just did not want another disappointment. From the moment I entered this beautiful interior, I felt a twinge of hope. A friend had suggested that we eat there for supper. Amazingly, I was not disappointed! Not only was the sushi of the finest quality, but for... More

Always reliable and reasonably priced. Good place to take the family. Sushi is fresh and the staff is very helpful. Both Branford and Clinton locations are great.

First time at Hanami 2; saw that it was rated #4 out of 120 restaurants in the area and had to try it. Walking into the restaurant and looking around, everything appears very clean and attended to....a very important point.....especially for the wife. The sushi (I ordered the sushi sashimi combo) was very good.....the fish was fresh and the portion... More

This was our first visit to Hanami II. What took us so long? In the midst of torrential rains today, we arrived to find an empty restaurant and decided against sushi on that basis. We won't make that mistake again! I had the lunch special of unagi on a bowl of rice, a favorite of mine, and it was the... More

We were excited to try the Branford location and found t to be just as amazing! It's not often you see a... More

Always prompt and courteous service! The sushi is the freshest in the area with special fly in's on the weekends so be sure to ask. This is an unassuming place from the outside with positively crisp and clean atmosphere on the inside. When I sit at the sushi bar I always get something complimentary :-)
