Reviewed January 5, 2014 via mobile

Sushi and sashimi plate, chef's choice, was very good and will satisfy the aficionados. Tempura (hard for some places in the US to perfect) was notable. Grilled salmon was tasty. But... not everything was perfect. The miso soup was very acceptable by American standard but was not served piping hot like in Japan. Maybe a concession to American taste? But it, or something else, affected the flavor the rice was a bit dry and unflavorful. I have many years' experience in Japan and I appreciate the limitations, so these are the two vulnerabilities of Hanada. But... the Asahi on draft, reportedly imported from Japan instead of Canada, was very good. For birthday desert, they put a candle in the scoop of green tea ice cream, and provided a small basket of Japanese goodies to choose a gift.

Had a great meal two separate times...kids loved it and friendly staff. More of a traditional Japanese menu, not really a lot of funky rolls, just straight sushi but good and fresh.

Stopped in during the one night we were in Oxnard on our way down the Coast. What a great find! Hubs is a sushi fiend and he declared it "great". They even served Uni that he said was very fresh. Very friendly staff and the restaurant is extremely clean.

If Sushi Hanada was in LA or any big city in the US, you would have a big line outside or a only reservation restaurant place, instead Chef Hanada chose a small town, that's why is packed on the weekend but ok during the week. Service is great and Sushi is Fresh. Beef tatake appetizer is to die for. I personally love the hamachi kama as well

Chef Hanada is a maestro, this is not the place to get your California Rolls, but the true Tokyo Sushi.
Fantastic
