Description: Opened in 2001, Hatsune Japanese restaurant is the original Californian-Japanese fusion concept. Always imitated, but never replicated, Hatsune is a time-tested stalwart that has become a veritable institution in Beijing's dining scene, the very first of its kind in China to feature innovative, cutting-edge California-style sushi rolls on its menu. Culinary perfection coupled with award-winning service, this restaurant's critically acclaimed menus offer what food lovers describe as Japanese fusion at its best.

Went to this restaurant near my hotel, based on Tripadvisor write ups and was definitely not disappointed. Great fresh flavorful sushi, the menu is simple but with plenty of options and inventive dishes. Service is quick. Ambience is relaxed quiet. The employees where attentive and friendly and very helpful. A must for California style sushi if in Beijing.

Particularly nice items on the menu are Dobin Mushi soup (outstanding), the cod (baked I think), and some of the roles, oh yeah and the Agadashi tofu.

Based on a hint from a very nice person, I went with some friends to the Hatsune.
And, I was simply impressed. Impressed by the ambience, impressed by the friendliness of the employees, impressed by the variety of Sushi (asf.) in the menu, and obviously also impressed of the quality of the Sushi's.
One week later, we went again with a group of more then 20 guests; everybody was really happy with this Sushi restaurant.
For me personally, the best Sushi I ever had in my life (worldwide!).

I remember when no one went to this place. Alan had to go to embassy to embassy to promote his Sushi.

Now it's one of the must go places if you are living in Beijing.

Alan a ABC or Taiwanese American depending on your view comes from California. He opened up Hatsune more than 10 years ago.

The oldest one is a little east from the China world.

The food while it's gotten really expensive over the years has stayed consistent. The success of this place is from its great service and consistent food.

Sure there are millions of other Japanese places popping up all over Beijing now, but hey if you want something that you know will taste good again and again you go to Hatsune.

At least you know you will get the fresh stuff, as they won't put out bad food.

Now depending on which one you go the one in San Li Tun or the one at Guang Hua Road, you might get different types of service.

Occasionally at the San Li Tun branch the service is sub par. But the one at Guang Hua road is always good.

Summary-

Consistent with good Service. A business type lunch or a good first date.

On the weekends it has all you can eat.
