Restaurant details
Reviewed 16 December 2013

Tonight, I found this little restaurant near my hotel, courtesy of an internet search. Located in a shopping mall which has many Asian businesses, this restaurant is well worth a second visit. Justifiably known for their handmade "gyoza" (dumplings or potstickers), the food and service were both very good.

I chose the "sui" (boiled) gyoza (as opposed to the "yaki" -- fried -- gyoza). The numerous dumplings were served with soup and salad, and the total cost was only $8.75. A real deal.

The restaurant is small, and perhaps better for carry-out than eating in because of limited seating. But it's extremely clean, well-lighted, and friendly. They have a variety of drinks, including a handful of Japanese beers. They accept major credit cards.

I liked it a lot, and will go back when I'm next in the area.

I come to this restaurant quite frequently. Love the handmade gyoza/potstickers. This time I went with 3 more people. We ordered 12 pieces of yaki gyoza, 2 chuka ramen ( noodles with pork in soy sauce base soup), chicken and cilantro noodle soup and tan tan noodles( spicey black beam sauce with minced pork). Everything came out relatively fast. Gyoza were pan-fried and were juicy inside. I had the chuka ramen with pieces of pork in a soy sauce base soup. Nice and warm but not too salty. Service was swift and efficient. I have also tried their pork fried-rice,stir-fried vegetables and cold noodles before. All of them were tasty but not oily. Hana is a great little place to grab a quick bite. It is affordable and conveniently located in the Strawberry square shopping center( where Mitsuwa market is). Will go again.
