Who knew in a small-town in upstate NY would have a superb sushi restaurant. My son and I found this place in a random stop for lunch. The sushi chef Bowin made us an incredible lunch. The Tuna, yellowtail and the Uni were so fresh...and delicious. Our server Lili..provided excellent service. She had a warm smile and laughed at all my stupid jokes. Serious...this place is a find!!More

The BEST place to get fresh sushi. The sea urchin is fantastic. We have been back multiple times and never been disappointed. If you're a sushi eater this is a must try.

We went on a Friday in the late afternoon. The restaurant was not very crowded then, but more people did arrive by the time we left. I will say our server couldn't have been any nicer and the food was excellent. We'll definitely be coming...back to Hanami.More

I have eaten sushi all over the country and this one is on the top of the list. This is my new go too sushi restaurant. I recommend the Fuji Apple Sake. Only problem is there is too much to decide from. Never been disappointed...in all the trips there.More

Friends recommended this small hard to find restaurant in Middletown. It is a hidden Japanese Gem. So quaint and friendly. The service is great. The food was fresh and tasty. I love the light and crispy texture of the tempura.

Hamami has great lunch specials - and their sushi is high quality. For the money, it is a good value. Their fish is fresh- and it is cut properly (without sinew). Spoken by a sushi snob.

Just ate here...why, don't ask me. All I know is that I just got paid back for the Atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. Everything smelled like it was spoiled and tasted worse.

We arrived in Middletown just to break up a long trip. We had originally planned to go to another restaurant, but this one caught our eye and we are glad that we stopped. The atmophere was calm and friendly, perfect for a couple who wanted...to be able to chat without shouting over clattering plates and loud music. The service throughout was friendly and helpful. We chose a couple of dinner bento boxes, a fantastic value at $18 each. The dinner included soup or salad, as well as tempura, dumplings, rice of your choice, and a choice of sushi or sashimi. The portions were generous and delicious, and the wait staff was very helpful with any questions. The whole experience was great, and we left feeling much refreshed for the second part of our journey.More
