A great experience to have with the family. Staff was courteous, orders were taken quickly with drinks that followed. Meals came out timely and I now have a new favorite sushi restaurant on the shore!

The sushi was fresh, prepared very well. We also shared a bento box with substitutions for dietary needs and that was excellent too.

We had from grandma and grandpa down to the little ones. The hibachi chef made sure he put on a show for all. We had chicken, filet, shrimp, rice, vegetables, etc. All were so good and we and someone with a seafood allergy with us and the chef made sure he cooked the shrimp separately.

Okay, I'd been meaning to try this spot forever, but finally got around to it this summer. Full disclosure, I don't eat sushi. So I'm reviewing this as a friend of sushi eaters, who loves cooked Japanese dishes. I loved everything I tried, especially the tempura. And for a Japanese restaurant, where they tend towards smaller portions, you get a... More

Hanami is always good. The fish is fresh, the sushi and sashimi are well-prepared and the appetizers (shumai, edamame, and gyoza are some of our favorites) are tasty. The service is friendly and welcoming (but can get slow at times as Hanami is often bustling). They serve only beer, wine and sake ( and a lot of cocktails made with... More

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

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.
