Such good sushi and good prices. One of the best in New Orleans. They are super fast too. I recommend the Hanna Special and Mango Salmon! It's in a good area too. I trust to go here with my kids!

Hana has been around, it seems, forever. So glad they are open on Sunday. Had not eaten there in many years and the food is still really good. Tried a new soup this time and I want more!

Maybe it's because I'm living in Florida but this place has the most creative and delicious sushi I have had in quite sometime.. Definitely recommend!

We went here for lunch and dinner on a trip to New Orleans. They serve traditional Japanese sushi and other food, fresh and with generous portions. They gave our grandkids fans made by hand by the owners wife on one occasion, and ringpops on another. The lunch menu was very reasonable. I would go again any time.

Popped in for lunch on a time constraint. Ordered the lunch sushi special. Came with miso soup, noodle salad, garden salad, and 16 delicious rolls. Super quick. Love that they give the warm towel to wipe your hands beforehand.

Hana is located in easily accessible uptown New Orleans, just a few minutes walk from Loyola University and Audubon Park. Upon entering, the staff (which I happen to know has not changed much in the past five years) is perpetually delighted to see any customer: old or new, every time. The freshness of the fish is excellent, and more importantly,... More

I wanted to love this place. It seemed just cool enough at the beginning. The exterior was non discript and dilapidated, like the owner was too cool to care about meaningless niceties. Upon entering the restaurant, the inside also screamed I don't care with drab diner furniture. I was also intrigued that the waitresses hardly spoke English. Was this another... More

Yes, that's blah and meh. Or worse. On entering, the ambiance was flat and depressed, which leads to depressing. No single smile or lightness could cut it. The sushi bar is odd, you're looking a bit up to your chef, as a supplicant, but HE is droll and grim. Only 2 "chefs." The Miso Soup was delicious, and the large... More

Close by Tulane University's campus, had dinner here with our daughter. I cannot believe how large and tasty their rolls are. We usually order 2 rolls per person when we eat Sushi, but we were told here to order less. We order four rolls between three of us and this was perfect. Try any of the speciality rolls. They are...

I used to live around the corner from this place before Katrina and was a regular there, 3-4 times a week. Now that I live out of town, I make sure to always stop off to get some good sushi. This past visit I didn't have enough time for a sit-down at the sushi bar, so I got a crab... More

Staying in Uptown / Carrollton

Neighbourhood Profile
Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the students living in the area ensure that Uptown and Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s outstandingly good food and live music) are Oak Street and Maple Street. For a truly wild time, the expansive acreage of Audubon Park, with its zoo, golf course, and actual patches of swampy wetlands, means peace and quiet are never too far away.
