I have been going to this place for many years and they are consistent with their quality of sushi. If you go you must try the chef's special it's great with or without rice, and you must also try the rice bowls. These are the dishes that I feel set them apart from all other sushi places, you can't find them anywhere else. The one thing that I will say is in the last 2 years the service staff has gotten considerably worse. They are rude, pushy, and non-attentive. There have been a few times recently that I choose to go somewhere else(not another sushi place of course) just to avoid them. Otherwise this is my favorite sushi place!

Love this place! My wife and I order the Sushi Deluxe For Two to go and get an amazing sushi dinner that fills us up for ~$30! Specialty rolls are also great. Very nice servers and sushi chefs.

Hanabi is a fantastic place for sushi and Japanese style food. My husband and I live very close to this place and it has quickly become one of our favorite places to visit. The food is always very good and fresh. The service is wonderful and friendly. There is a large variety of things to eat. They have a large list of different rolls, but they also offer a full menu of authentic dishes.
Some of out favorites are Sake I and Sake II, both are salmon rolls. The Boston roll which is tuna and avocado. Their crunch vegetable is out of this world. If you're looking for non-raw, their fried rice is great.
Each meal comes with soup, edamame and mochi. This place is an adorable spot that I could go on and on about!
The location is small so if you're planning on going on a Friday or Saturday night go early. This place gets very crowded.

I'm so glad I live near Hanabi. If I could afford it, I would eat it all the time! The service is wonderful, you can't come or go without the entire staff greeting you. The prices are average for sushi, and it's very good quality. One thing I love about Hanabi is that if you eat there they give you a few edamame, some miso soup, and usually mochi ice cream for free - very rare!!
