Diner Reviews
  • "This restaurant was some of the best service I have ever received. Our server was amazing and the owner came and spoke to us and was wonderful! The Lobster Roll was the best sushi I have ever had and I will absolutely be back!"

  • "A very mediocre Asian trying to please many palates. Dumplings were fine, nothing out of the ordinary. Pad thai was disappointing. It had four lousy shrimp. The sushi was fair, at best. And really, really pricey. I had one roll that was so devoid of flavor and was almost $12. Ordinarily I would give a place a second chance and go again. But owing to the cost, I will not "eat the risk.""

  • "Went for the 2nd time for holiday dinner with a friend. First time was with family. 2nd time was during happy hour. Loved both times. It is also a lot more quiet than other restaurants in the neighborhood even with a full house. Happy hour is half prize on some dishes and the large sake and $3.00 off some of the sushi rolls. Shrimp Shumai is very good. My friend and I both are crazy about the Hanaro special sushi roll. Their Pad Thai was okay but all in all I will be going back with more friends."

  • "While the sushi probably isn't the best I've ever had, it was very good and especially at the low prices that are offered during happy hour!"

  • "We've been looking for a good place for sushi and we loved hanaro! Great specialty rolls and traditional rolls. We enjoyed the beef drunken noodles, too."

  • "Our server was not entirely interested in serving us. You know, when you have to ask for everything that they should be asking you, and you feel awkward because it seems you are inconveniencing their night........ Food was good, but nothing to get excited about and want more. Compared to the reviews online it fell way short of that. Also, does not feel like a sushi restaurant, just a regular old bar with eating space attached. Will try somewhere else next time...."

  • "Bought an Amazon Local deal for Hanaro and decided to try it on a Monday night for dinner. The place was pretty quiet, with perhaps two other tables full of diners. We ordered two sushi rolls which tasted fine, but we wondered how fresh the ingredients were as the rice and fish were so cold it was like they'd all just come out deep-thaw. Our mains were chicken teriaki, which was Ok but tasted more like grilled chicken and cabbage; and Port Katsu, which had a nice sauce but the breading was so thick it was like eating chicken fried steak. The service was friendly and the miso soup was nice. Otherwise we had a very average experience and probably won't return (sorry)."

  • "The restaurant uses very good ingredients, especially the fish in the shashimi. However, the sauces and dressings taste like they come out of bottles bought at a supermarket. The decor is varnished brown drab. While the wait staff is very good, an oblivious busser dumped tableware into bins immediately adjacent to our table. Some fine tuning could make this a very good restaurant"

  • "The restaurant is cute but kind of empty and cold on the side we were first seated on. I ordered the vegetarian sushi bar and my friend had the shrimp tempura. The miso soup and green salad were great, as well as the cosmo I had. It was delicious. My meal was good (one would hope they don't mess up the cucumber roll) but my friend's tempura was unseasoned and bland. Even the sauce that came with it was tasteless. Other than that the place was okay. If we were to return it would be to give them another chance and try something different."
