This is probably the best Japanese restaurant in Bethesda. Delicious food nicely prepared; attentive service. Far better than average.

We loved this restaurant!
We loved this restaurant! We had to have two orders of the firecracker rolls, they were awesome. There are other choices for those who don't want sushi, but clearly sushi is the star here. The ambiance was lovely, and the location in the heart of Bethesda can't be beat. We'll definitely be back!

This place was great and the
This place was great and the sushi was phenomen can't go wrong with the octopus nigiri, the firecracker roll, the spicy mango roll or the steamed dumplings. The service was excellent. I would definitely recommend, especially for a romantic date night which was what I went for.

Our server was outstanding. We had a party of 10 and provided excellent service. He was very attentive and even memorized the entire order without any mistakes! Great food and atmosphere.

My husband and I came here in hopes we could find a good sushi place in Bethesda that wasn't as packed as Raku and we have now found our neighborhood sushi gem! Friendly and fast service with really delicious and fresh sushi. Their spicy tuna rolls are actually spicy and their salmon nigiri was as smooth as butter. We genuinely enjoyed our meal and will definitely be returning. Try the spicy mango roll, you won't be disappointed!

This is me and my boyfriends affordable "date spot." We have never really ordered an entree as we both loooovveee Hanaro's sushi. The Cherry Blossom Roll is to die for! Highly recommend this place. It's not THE fanciest of places and the service isn't as attentive as in higher-class joints, but everyone is very nice and quick in responding to needs and/or special requests. :) The bar is also usually quite full, but I have not had good experiences with their drinks. Not my cup of tea.

Went here for a friends birthday. The food and service service were great. My drink was not very good though.

What a fabulous find! I went
What a fabulous find! I went with my coworker and we both ordered bento boxes: teriyaki shrimp, rice, dumpling, soup, salad, half an order of California rolls, and a watermelon slice to refresh your palate at the end. Just ten bucks! I'm gonna say it... better than Raku down the street and cheaper. Plus checking in on yelp got us free edamame to start. We needed to at least taste their actual raw sushi though, despite already having so much food, so we split an order of the salmon avocado roll. Very good. Not skimpy, nice plump pieces of fish.
*One star shy of a perfect score because I wish they had more variety of rolls, or were more lax about substitutions. But not too big of a deal, because overall I will 100% be back.

Very good meal
The sushi was very good and all around enjoyed the experience. The waitress went above and beyond when she ran after me as I'd left my credit card behind.
