We love this place. Great for an intimate or family dinner, and they have a back room available for a small party. Good sushi. They also have a variety of noodle soups which are great to warm up with in the cooler months.

The ebi (tempura) shrimp was excellent. Fried just right and huge in size. Dipping sauce gave everything just the right amount of moisture. Service was very friendly and helpful, and the rest of the staff was just as friendly - greeted us and said goodbye. The ice cream in sticky rice was very unusual, but tasty.

I took my family to Hanamura for dinner. The staff is very friendly and brought our drinks out right away. My son ordered the Unagi Don, which was excellent. My wife got the Shakura roll (crab, asparagus, avocado, etc), which was also excellent. I'm a little less adventurous and got the teriyaki salmon. The fish was fresh and the sauce... More

We come here three or four times a year, whenever my husband craves Japanese food. I usually get the bento box and can have a few pieces of several choices. Husband enjoys their raw fish selections. Tasty miso soup too.

Don't waste your time eating here. The sushi was the worst I have ever had, and it smelled disgusting as well. My boyfriend and i now feel sick after or meal. For all of the other sushi places in Columbia with similar prices, it is not worth a visit. Check the yelp reviews! They are much more accurate!

This place is my favorite Japanese place. The bento is the BEST. My son, who loves sushi, loves the sushi here. He has something diffenent every time and says its really good every time. I like the bento and the Teriyaki salmon is great. I highly recommend it. The interior of this place isn't fancy but then again I go... More

I have been going to Hanamura for about 10 years, and for my money it is the best sushi in Columbia (and I eat a LOT of sushi). Everyone there is very nice and attentive (and service is far more personal than the other sushi places in the area in my opinion), the fish is always fresh, the special rolls... More

Hanamura is my favorite sushi in the area. I have been going there for years. The service is always excellent, as is the food. I usually order a bento box with a roll. I have never had a bad meal here. The miso soup is perfect! I can't say enough about how much I enjoy dining here!

We love this place. They may have the best sushi in this area. Their service is the best. It's a small establishment so I wouldn't recommend it for parties, but if you are on a first date it would be a great place to go. Highly recommended.

Hat richtig gut geschmeckt und die Portionen waren nicht zu groß oder zu klein. Wer Seafood liebt sollte unbedingt die Lobster Roll (mit Soße) probieren! Sehr interessant waren die mit Eis gefüllten Reiskuchen zum Dessert. Erdbeer war echt lecker.
