“In taste, it's the best Japanese restaurant around here but portion looks small...”
Reviewed August 16, 2011

I'm Japanese and I love Japanese food, of course....Even from Japanese point of view, Hanzo can serve authentic Japanese meals and many good bottles of sake. I can say it is one of the best Japanese restaurants in southern east Michigan.

However, the portion of each dish looks a bit small for its price. I have no problem with that. But some American people (even who love Japanese food) might be surprised with it. I think other Japanese restaurants here in Michigan serve with larger portion of dish with same price range. (However, I don't mean the price is unreasonably expensive. I believe it is a bit more expensive than the one you expect.)

Other than that, atmosphere is nice as this place looks like real IZAKAYA (pub) in Japan. Over all, taste is very good. If you are looking for the real Japanese meal around here, this is it.

“Izakaya (like tapas) in Michigan”
Reviewed August 5, 2011

This place is so Japanese that you will forget you are in Michigan. As is the nature of Izakaya the place offers an extensive selection of Sake and beer. The reasonable priced menu is full of creative treasures that surprised and delighted us. This is NOT a sushi/Teriyaki/Tempura place and they do not offer it. Go for the extensive 'special' menu, it is full of amazing creations.
The service is superb, attentive and responsive.
