We order Sushi from here weekly. The quality is excellent, the service quick and they are reasonably priced.

I can only speak about the sushi/sashimi platters that Hana prepared today for a take-out lunch for my visiting Japanese customers, but they were excellent. I was careful to specify that I wanted only the type of nigiri that would be found in Japan (none of the weird rolls favored in America), and the Japanese owners at Hana knew exactly... More

I found this restaurant on TripAdvisor while waiting for my wife in a shoe store. Normally, I wouldn't really consider a restaurant in a strip mall, but decided to try it. We are very glad we did. The Japanese hostess greeted us warmly and promptly. The restaurant was nicely decorated in a Japanese theme and kites. I ordered a Bento... More

I've reviewed this restaurant before and given it an excellent review. Since then, we've been back four times before this one. Sushi/Sashimi is some of the best I've had in the US or Japan, and I've been to Japan more than a dozen times. Other items on the menu are very good. But I've given up on the service. The... More

This place is a lovely gem! I am so lucky it is near my home. If it was in Boston, it would always be full and be twice the price as it is excellent! Forget about the overly done poor decor and the awful location (Shaw's plaza in Newburyport); here it is all about the food. Admittedly, most places that... More

We have dined there numerous times and have enjoyed it. The Miso soup and Tempura are favorites. Recently also had some take out: tempura, dumplings, sushi and nori all arrived hot and very good. It offers a cleaner change of pace from fast food options. It is my understanding that the owner passed away suddenly and I think it was... More

We stopped in for an unplanned dinner. Service was slow but polite. The decor was interesting but filthy (when you see a fish tank at a restaurant that looks like it hasn't been cleaned in months you should probably not eat there). There was centimeter thick dust on top of the umbrellas as another example. A nice touch would have... More

I have been to Hana once. I was not impressed. The food is no better than sushi from a grocery store. I would go market basket instead.
