Presentation of shrimp and rice was not appetitizing.
Good food, pleasant service, and we weren't rushed thru our meal. Plenty of veggie options.
Fantastic as always. Been going here since they opened and it gets better every time!
Took forever to get our order. Finally arrived and it was obvious it had been sitting under lamps for a while as my noodles had a "crust" on them. Service has gone downhill lately.
Everything was fine except the server ran our credit card 3 times
Sake Hana is consistently good. Our waitress, Nancy Chen (spelling?) was outstanding. Very friendly, attentive without being intrusive and very knowledgeable of the menu. Made some outstanding recomme for this meal and for our next visit.
We had requested a booth when we placed our reservations on OpenTable and when we arrived a gentleman explained they didn't have a booth available because he had gotten the times mixed up. It wasn't a big deal to us and we gladly accepted a table. He brought us an order of edamame on the house for the mistake. (Totally not needed but very much appreciated. Thanks!) The service was fast and steady. We ordered miso soup and the stuffed jalapeño poppers. Very good. Then we order a few sushi rolls to split which were all great. We ordered one of their special rolls they had for the night (roll with tiger wrap) and were blown away. We agreed it was our favorite of the night. We had a great date and hope to be back soon.
Sake Hana set the bar high with past visits. Everything from the arrival (hostess) to the service and food was always excellent.
However, my last visit was during a slow time and the service was even slower. We sat for 10-15 minutes before anyone acknowledged we had been seated.
Maybe our server hadn't been notified we were seated. Things got much better when the top notch food arrived.
This is my favorite sushi restaurant. Their specials are always a good bet. All their soups are delicious. The pineapple fried rice is a great alternative for those in the party who don't eat sushi.
Always grateful to have such a top quality sushi place way out in what feels like the boonies in terms of food culture. The fish is always so fresh and clean tasting, and the place is usually packed. Wish we could afford to come more often.
Excellent food. Great staff. Beautiful decor. Only issue is that it can get very loud.
This is a unique restaurant! It is pleasing to everyone, including vegetarians and children.
Overall, dining at Sake Hana was a relatively positive experience. I was impressed with the lighting, it reminded me of establishments in Singapore. The table, however, exhibited obvious signs of wear. The noise level was very high and detracted from the experience. I do not fault the restaurant for the noise. The pork potsticker (gyoza) appetizer my date had were quite good? The pork spring roll were uninspiring. The sushi I had was fair. I say so because the fish was not cool but at room temperature. The flavor was good but I was put off by the temperature of the fish. The wasabi was potent and a nice serving of ginger was provided. The miso soup was good. My date ( native Japanese) had a seafood stir fry. The flavor was OK but it was almost swimming in liquid. Portion size was adequate. Our server was fantastic. Jen did a fine job and we tipped accordingly. I did see some California roll creations on other tables and I was intrigued but may not have the opportunity to revisit...
We have been going here since they opened years ago. Every time is a new wonderful adventure. The food is fantastic! The kids love it, we love it, everyone loves it!
Had a great first time experience. Our waitress was able to answer all our food questions and was so friendly. The food was great. Took my wife there for V- Day. She can't wait to go back
What a great restaurant -sushi and entrees were terrific
We had to ask 3 different people to wait on us after waiting 15 minutes. Then it took over half an hour to get our drinks. When we ask to speak with the Manager, the bad service continued. We were expressing our frustration to him and he told us to stop speaking. Our food came out wrong. My cousin specifically asked for something to be left out, due to an allergy. The food had to come back. The manager then was trying to push dessert on us even though we just wanted to leave. The food is good but the service is awful. I will not be back.
Celebrated my Birthday tonight. Our server, lily, was wonderful- very friendly and engaging. The best part of the night was lily bringing a complimentary dessert with a birthday candle and sang 'happy birthday' to me. Thank you all for making it so special.
Excellent as always. Quality sushi is worth paying a premium for.
This was a great find. It's hard for me to get excited about sushi restaurants these days, very often indistinguishable or uninspired. Sake Hana really stands out from the crowd. The fish was perfect, fresh, beautiful colors and textures. The rolls were creative, very generous with the fish and light on the rice. The sashemi dinner special was a great value, and dramatic presentation. Server and manager were very attentive, friendly. This will become my "go-to" sushi restaurant!
WOW - this place is totally stealth out there in a strip mall in Avondale! Very good fresh-tasting Asian food, and my husband said the sushi was very good. This place is now our go-to place when we want asian food. They need to improve a little on the cocktail side (brought us a list of Scotch when we asked about their Bourbons, weren't sure what we were saying when we said we wanted a martini "up"), but you are not there for the drinks, and I would just speak clearly when you order drinks and make sure they write it down exactly as you want it. The waitress was really nice, and the manager was hands on.
Highly recommended for good sushi and atmosphere.
The food was amazing! It was our first time there and we celebrated our anniversary. Our waitress congratulated us, was very friendly and knowledgeable.
We have been to this restaurant three times in the past year and every time the service and food were excellent. The sushi is very fresh! Looking forward to our next visit.
Great place! We frequent often and have never had a bad meal. Always delicious!
Omg. Great and photo shots and taste bud experience worthy We always take the family of professional foodie adults after a night of the touring lights at Longwood Gardens at Christmas. This is the absolute best sushi in Philly, DC and Wilmington . As told by our group of NYC foodies ,DC foodies, New Orleans hipsters and just old folk from the Philadelphia area,,, just plan said "send more". . I am amazed the line isn't standing out the door for 45 minutes plus or more. Funky strip mall setting but from the professional foodies and bloggers this is an incredible experience.
Great sushi and hibachi chicken.
There on Christmas for dinner. Not from the area and found you on Open Table. The food was great, our Server was so nice (Nancy Chen) and was fun dealing with all our questions. They accomodated special requests openly and even made some suggestions! Love this place and will be back when we are at Longwood again.
Lovely ambiance and food was ample and well presented
Absolutely try some of the chefs specials...the BEST Chilean Sea Bass in a plum sauce reduction you will ever have!
This restaurant has never disappointed us. We eat here regularly and have introduced many friends to this excellent restaurant. If you are not a fan of sushi, there are plenty of other options. The Chinese dishes are the best in the area.
Eaten here many times never disappointed in the food.
First time there.... great, fresh food at a good price. Great service as well!!!
I love Sake Hana, it's a favorite choice for date nights. It's a romantic spot with great food. Highly recommend.
Who would think that such an excellent sushi and asian food restaurant would happen to be in southern Chester County, Pennsylvania. Consistently great food from an avocado salad starter to the sushi, to the creative rolls, to the grilled salmon and stir fried vegetables. Good classic fruity drinks like a Zombie, and a decent wine list with unusual choices, not just the giant brand names. Bar is good for an after movie drink and snack too.
Great food. Sunday night is good for no crowds. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Very good food and drinks with excellent service every time.
The food was great! My boyfriend is vegetarian, so it is always great to eat at a location where he has multiple options. I'm sure this will become one of our local favorites.
I came here for my birthday dinner with friends. Our service had a hard time understanding some of our drink orders which caused my friend to order something else since she didn't know what he meant. Other than that it was great. Fast service and the sushi was delicious!
The food, as always, was delicious and Ted, our server, was right on top of everything and quite personable!
