Very good place! Helpful staff, fresh fish and tasty eats.
I went to dinner in this place because of the reviews, i always liked Japanese cuisine, so i was pleasantly surprised by the quality and quantity of fish in the portions, there are special offers for the groups of people, as well as offers of the day. You can sit at a large table in front of the bar and in the canter of it runs water, on it floats the boats with sushi, the eyes you want to try everything ;)

Отличное место, со свежей рыбой и хорошим обслуживанием. В суши хорошие куски рыбы, как и в сушими.

Thank Александр П

Hanamaru offers some different options including maki wrapped in cucumber (if you’re not eating rice), as well as some plays on sushi fusion like the “Joy Special” roll coated in jalapeño-flavored masago (fish roe) and others brushed with sweet/spicy sauces like the “Firecracker Special” roll.
My very favorite thing to order is their "Temaki" (hand roll) salmon skin because the cone of nori seaweed holding the broiled salmon skin is properly toasted so that every bite is crunchy and savory.
For appetizers we like the tender pan fried pork pot stickers "Gyoza" and the "Sumo Puffs" which are crab and cream cheese croquettes.
For a bite of dessert try their red bean or green tea ice cream. If you haven't had red beans in a dessert you're really missing something!
Also, unlike most restaurants, Hanamaru makes their lemonade in-house and serves it with fresh lemon slices in the glass. It is delicious! And though it may sound odd, if you also order a large ice cold Asahi beer you can mix it half and half with the lemonade for a very refreshing beverage.

I can recommend Hanamaru. It is not the RItz, but it is clean and the waitstaff attentive. The Sushi Chefs are Japanese, and they are Big Japanese guys. They are in charge.
The sushi is not the best I have had but it is VERY GOOD for the PRICE.
The Sushi Sashimi combo is Good for $26. Comes with Miso Soup and Salad. The Cold Saki was fine at $12. Large convivial Dining are. Good bar. A rotating race track ring of sushi continuously goes by you to catch your eye, but nobody seems to touch the stuff on this track.
The Chefs are good. The Sushi is Good, The atmosphere is Good. Nothing is outstanding, - except the price is GREAT !
I recommend this for casual business, a casual date (if you want to show you are grounded in reality), a SOLO dinner, lunch and Hanamaru is definitely FUN with FRIENDS!!
I LOVE unpretentious REAL food for my solo business meals. They fill the bill and MAKE ME HAPPY.
