My family lives in Plainview and this was a regular staple of ours. We would go to Hama almost every other week. The sushi WAS so fresh. The business has now been bought by someone else and it has totally gone downhill. The sushi is not that fresh anymore. It is actually too cold most of the time tasting like ice. They are very into their presentation. I have been getting the sushi on plates that have lights that light up in different colors, flowers on the plates & most recently baby's breath spread across the fish. I'm not sure about anyone else but I don't appreciate eating a piece of sushi that might still have a little piece of a flower on it that I didn't realize was still there. I also am finding now that it is hard to talk with the staff since it seems that most of them do not speak English. I shouldn't have to repeat myself several times to get the waitress to understand that we need napkins or a straw.
My family has now totally written this place off. I guess we will have to try the sushi restaurant down the toad next time.
