Hana Japanese Eatery Top 100

This busy, family-owned operation north of Seventh and Missouri avenues is overseen by co-owners Lynn Becker and Chef Lori Hashimoto, a true treasure of the Phoenix chef scene. The place is known for well-crafted sushi and sashimi — yellowtail, tuna, salmon, crab, albacore, and whitefish. We like the squid maruyaki, scallop edamame kasane age, Hana tempura, and various bento box lunch options. Hana does not accept reservations, so diners may have a bit of a wait at peak times. Hana Japanese Eatery is also, famously, BYOB. Patrons may bring their own sake, beer, or wine for a $5 corkage fee, and the Hana staff will keep it cold for you. Sharing with the neighboring table is always encouraged. New Normal: Hana Japanese Eatery is open for curbside pickup and contactless delivery within a 5-mile radius ($35 minimum order with $5 delivery charge). Food is delivered by a long-time staff member, not a third-party delivery service.
