Hana Japanese Eatery

5524 N. 7th Ave. Phoenix, AZ 85013 | Central Phoenix | 602-973-1238

Location Description:

The sushi at this humble neighborhood eatery is quite impressive -- think oversized slabs of extremely fresh aji, silky sake, and buttery hamachi, elegantly draped over compact rice balls. But the rest of the menu shines as well, from salads with homemade dressings and tender clams steamed in sake, soy, and ginger, to light, crisp tempura and hearty bowls of noodle soup. Everything's as delicious as it looks. Meanwhile, the doting waitstaff will make you feel like a regular on your very first visit.
