My family loves Hibachi so while on vacation in Clinton decided to try Hanami. After being rudely greeted at the door, the hostess obviously annoyed that we wanted Hibachi, we were led to a tiny back room with two small grills. We were asked to move our seats twice and then preceded to wait 45 minutes for the chef to... More

Hanami in Clinton has been around for a long time & the reason for that is they have good food and there Hibachi area is a great experience for any adult or child..The service is good and if I had one thing to say negative is that at times we have been rushed while eating in the Hibachi area -...

I stop in for the shrimp habachi every few months or so. The service is always good and the food is too. The sushi is basic but fresh so it's not bad. I feel that the prices are a little more than I'd expect but overall this place is consistently good.

Hanami has been a good place for sushi on the shoreline for many many years, and they haven't lost their touch. The sushi is fresh and tasty, and they have interesting specials. There's a hibachi room in the back if you're interested. The liquor available is limited to beer, wine and sake.

Hanami is usually packed on the weekends because the fish is fresh and delicious, the service is very good and the prices are reasonable. The only drawback would be if you are looking for a full bar--this is wine, beer and sake only (though they do make all kinds of mixed drinks out of sake).

If you like Sushi this is the place to go. I have had sushi in many places around the world and this one is at the top of the list for quality. The miso soup is my favorite. I eat here at least once a week if not more. Very good food and great value.

My husband and I love sushi and came here for a quick dinner date. The sushi was more unique and flavorful then any I had ever had. We will definitely go back. I just wish it were a more romantic atmosphere.

In the back, kids like to go for hibachi show at u shaped grill. In front usual Japanese cuisine and sushi. Always been happy with quality and service. Bit pricey for hibachi so leave for special occasions.

Hadn't been here for a few months and when we returned it was just as good as it always was. The fish is fresh, the sushi is well made and the service is excellent. Wine, sake and beer only, though they do make all kinds of cocktails out of sake.

We were coming home from an appointment in a town and it was lunch time--decided to stop for a few bites at a little sushi place we ran across- What a nice treat! Clean and pretty, relaxing and good service--we had tempura veggies and shrimp which was very nicely prepared-the bento box has a good selection and is perfect for... More
