Diner Reviews
  • "I have been to Japan a few times and have had real authentic Sushi from there as well as hundreds of Sushi places across the United States and this place has got it going on! One of the best sushi places I have ever had! Everything was fresh, delicious, and 100% worth it. The owner went around and made sure everyone was happy even during a busy hour which shows his compassion for his restaurant. I can't wait to go back to this place. Just writing this review is making me want to dine here at this very moment lol"

  • "We are not sushi mavens, but like it when we can find the good stuff. This is the place! The tuna in my roll was as good as the $8/piece toro at the next-best sushi place I know of. Lots of variety and imagination (maybe a bit too much), but the purest can be handled well, too. The rest of the menu offers a mix of Asian items with an emphasis on Japan. Too soon to comment on these items after only one visit. VERY popular and busy. Pleasant decor not at all what would be expected based on the strip-mall location. We will be back -- soon."

  • "We went as a Mom's Night Out and it couldn't have been better. The conversational tables allowed us to converse with each other without screaming. Food was delicious, service was excellent, and we had a blast. I rate Noise Level as "energetic" but most of that noise was us!"

  • "I lived and worked for years in Tokyo where, needless to say, I ate some of the most exquisite sushi in the world. While I've been able to find a number of places in New York that could pass as a Tokyo sushi restaurant, I hadn't come across any in PA - until I found Sake Hana. Very high quality fish paired with rice cooked the way sushi rice ought to be cooked made for a really pleasurable, flavorful dinner. This place is in a strip mall, but don't be deceived! It far transcends what one may consider "strip mall food." "

  • "Our waitor forgot multiple items that were ordered, placed an entirely wrong order (seafood dish vs. vegetarian) then acted as if it were the customers mistake. The correct order was made but brought out as the other people in the party were finshing up their meals. The waitor brought out the check while the 1 person was still eating. The food was good, but was very slowly made, and we were quickly rushed out. "

  • "Yes, it is hard to believe that a sushi restaurant at the end of a strip mall in Avondale, PA could be so delicious. Our goto place now for sushi as we dine with family, friends, or those who are visiting from out of town. Easy to find, easy to park, fast friendly service, and the manager always comes around to assure everything you ask for is handled. The TNT and Mango-Tango roll are currently our mouth watering favorite. "

  • "This restaurant has wonderful sushi. The rolls were works of ART! I wish I didn't live 2 hours away. The sushi chef's work at lightning speed to turn out amazing creations. Thank you open table...I wouldn't have found this place without you!"

  • "I held off on reviewing until a second visit. Sake Hana is a lively and attractive local sushi/asian restaurant, with a diverse menu and very stylistic sushi dishes. The problem is with the service. The waitstaff is inexperienced and poorly trained, although they seem to try The bigger issue is with the kitchen, especially the sushi bar. We waited 25 minutes for our sushi appetizers to appear, during which time the owner explained that the sushi bar is backed up and causing delays. I changed my dinner order to a non-sushi item, and he said "good idea." I hope Sake Hana gets its service issues straightened out. All our food was very good but not worth the wait."

  • "Always excellent service and food. They are so accomadating. If you don't see what you are looking for, ask. The manager Michael is very attentive to all customers. The bartender Josee always has a smile on her face and makes you feel so welcome. This has become our favorite restaurant!"

  • "Great spot. Hidden gem in a shopping center in avondale. Usually excellent service. This particular night there was some waiting for the waiter. Even so, always treated very well. Better sushi than what you find in neighboring upscale kennet square."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "The food was excellent! The decor is very relaxing and original. Love the lighting. Price and value excellent also. The only thing I didnt like was having my soup carried to the table with the waitress fingers wrapped around the rim of the bowl and seeing it splash on the floor. Same for tempura sauce. Think liquids should be carried on a tray."

  • "I go to Sake Hana quite a bit. The bartenders, Trina and Josee, are the greatest. Sake Hana has the best sushi in a 50 mile radius in my opinion. Their wine and sake list is very extensive. Michael, the manager, is very knowledgeable about wines and sake and would be happy to recommend pairing options. From an entree perspective, though, I feel their entrees are overpriced and the portions are small. This is the only reason I do not give it 5 stars. I ate the seafood special for 2 which was $65 for one lobster, four shrimp, four scallops, and about 4-6 oz of mahi mahi. Tasty but expensive. If I had shared it, I would definitely be hungry. For sushi and friendship though, it's #1"

  • "Service was slow.....it wasn't crowded that night. When I asked about the Thai iced tea, she couldn't tell me about it. The mgr happened to walk by and described it to me. I went ahead and ordered it. Throughout the dinner, the mgr checked on us. He waa very nice and very gracious. The food and presentation was beautiful and very good. The sushi was melt in your mouth good. This is not my first time there nor will it be the last."

  • "We've never had a bad meal at Sake Hana. Their entrees are always of consistent quality, and the beautifully presented items from their sushi bar are absolutely superior to anything you'll find in the area. Sake Hana has a well-trained service staff as well - always pleasant, prompt and courteous. I recommend trying Sake Hana today! Trust me, it's worth the trip."

  • "I would highly recommend this restaurant. The sushi is especially fabulous! There is also a good selection of entrees for those not into sushi. It can be noisy when crowded so I recommend a booth or a seat near the sushi bar. They also have special seats for groups of 5-7 where you can sit on pillows on the floor. Fun!!"

It is really nice that they have a liquor license also with good selection. the food was fantastic as was the service and friendliness of all staff. Great option for dining"

  • "From our entrance to the exit, the Sake Hana staff were attentive and personable without being cloying. The decor is modern & the lighting is creative and fun. The service was good without being overbearing. I appreciated that the manager came around twice to be sure that everything was okay. The food was impeccably and beautifully presented and the flavor in each dish was delicious. We tried the appetizer sampler- great for 2 persons. I recommend the blooming lobster roll for an appetizer share! Great combo of tempura lobster & avocado for a sharing appetizer. Sushi was creatively presented and tasty. I had stir-fry beef & broccoli, with red curry sauce on the side. Curry sauce was fab! I would highly recommend this place!"

  • "The waitress spilled the water to start. The helper? He tried to explain the beer, the menu, the sushi but his hurried English was not helpful. The imported beer was skunky. The micro-beer pumpkin ale was the worst of the bunch. I have had better sushi & sashimi @ all you can eat Buffetts. We do not plan to return any time soon."
    Dined on 10/13/2013
  • "Sake Hana continues its run as an impressive sushi restaurant in an unlikely location. Creative presentations, reliable service, and high quality sushi grade fish and ingredients. Some of the non-sushi entrees are quite good as well, but can be inconsistent at times. But those times are rare, so if you haven't tried Saka Hana yet - do it tonight!"

  • "I have been coming to Sake Hana regularly and I never get tired of it. The weekly specials add variety to the menu. The upgraded drink menu has lots of choices, but the manager, Michael, and Natalie, one of my favorite waitresses, are both extremely knowledgeable and help me with my wine and sake choices. I like to ask "what just came in?" when I order, so I know that I am getting the freshest, live seafood available. One of my favorites is the lobster two ways (lobster tail sashimi and lobster claw tempura roll). The bartenders are friendly and always greet me with a smile. I have taken many friends and family members here and they have always been pleased with both the food and the friendly service."
