The food at Hana is good, but I doubt that I will be back because of my experience today. Going to a restaurant isn't just about the food, it's about the whole experience, and the cashier today made me feel like utter crap. I'm 6 months

Never been here before and never knew it was around. We all had a great time and enjoyed the sushi. We had an assortment and all was good with a great price. I will definately go back.

Every piece of sushi is made fresh with excellent quality sashimi. I have never been disappointed with anything I've ordered, and it's so cheap!!! Tuna rolls are $4!!

Been coming here for more than 10 years. They know me. They know my kids. They know my in-laws. Fresh sushi. Excellent tempura udon. Incredibly reasonable prices for authentic Japanese food.

Hana is fantastic value for the money. They don't do anything that is super fancy, but they offer all the standard Japanese fare that Americans expect to see on the menu, and they do it well. From all manner of sushi, to udon, to agedashi tofu, Hana does a quality job of serving up classic Japanese fare. The service is also very fast and unpretentious. Great place to grab a quick dinner and you won't break the bank doing it. If you want fancy, go to Nishino, but if you want tasty, quick and inexpensive, head to Hana.

This is my husband's favorite sushi resturant. We have tried other places in the area, but nothing compares. The great part is here the sushi super tastey but not super pricey. Service is prompt and the staff is friendly. The place may not be the most romantic atmosphere, but the food makes it worth it.

I eat here at least once a week since it's within walking distance from my home. I've been going here for the past 11 years and it continues to be my favorite restaurant, period. The food (especially the rice bowls) are absolutely delicious and inexpensive. The sushi is much better quality than places like Todai or supermarkets, but even cheaper. The environment is busy and informal, much like you'd find in a neighborhood staple in Japan.
The food is delicious, especially the sushi, Beef Don, Katsu Curry Don, and Sukiyaki. The menu highlights their complete dinners, but the rice bowls and other "ala carte" items are a much better value and often the same food. The Beef Don is the only thing you can get in Seattle that is similar to the beef bowls that are offered in Tokyo in quick-bite joints such as Yoshinoya. (If you've been to a Yoshinoya in the US their food is much worse than Japan's in my experience.) Nigiri sushi can be had for about $1 per piece. They'll prepare rolls that aren't on the menu if you ask (nicely). You can pick up a rice bowl to go for about $5. Seating can get tight on weekends, especially if you have more than two people. My parents (who grew up in Taiwan) love Japanese food and are always complaining about the high prices and needless fancy decorations and formal atmosphere of "good" Japanese restaurants in the US. The countless teriyaki shops around here are too fast-food and don't offer much of a selection, and no sushi. Hana falls perfectly in between, with great food, a full menu, low prices and fast service. My folks absolutely love it, as do I.

Cons: Parking can be tricky on Broadway on weekends and evenings.

I went here with some Japanese buddies and we had a great time. We ordered tons of food had excellent service from friendly servers. I highly recommend this spot on Broadway - I think it's just about the best sushi value in Seattle.

Pros: Excellent sushi preparation, some harder to find dishes are available

Cons: Parking can be difficult in this part of town - take a bus or walk!

Hana's food are not bad, and the price is reasonable. We always go there for lunch~ however, the cashier (one girl with dark skin & short height, age b/t 35-45 with curly hair), she's sooooooooo mean~ she treats customer very bad, and that's one reason i swear to god i'll never go to eat at hana again. one day i went there for lunch with my friend and we were about ready to go, we asked the server to come (all servers are busy since they only have TWO servers). so we asked her to come and help us to get check. SHE WAS LIKE, actting so mean and cold, showing "the most unrepectful look" to her customers. SHE EVEN THROW OUR FORTUNATE COOKIES INTO TRASH CAN JUST IN FRONT OF US!!! it's unbelieable that they treat their loyal customers this way. we've made a decision right away that we will never go eat at hana AGAIN!!

I was invited by a friend a few years ago to go to Broadway's Hana's. Since then, I've gone there for sushi whenever I can. I go at least once a month, if not more. I love the food and the service. The sushi is made by a genuine Japanese chef. Yes, the food is authentic. The price is right. The building is unpretentious. The reason it's always busy is because of the service and the good quality of food. I love to get the fresh vegetable sushi rolls. I think the shrimp sushi and tako sushi is fantastic.

I enjoyed lunch here today. I ordered the tonkatsu curry don and it was delicious. There was little or no msg. I also enjoyed the age-dashi tofu appetizer and it was perfectly light and the daikon was fresh. The ocha is correctly blended. I am Japanese and I wonder why all the previous reviews were so negative.

Ha Na's sushi is cheap, some of the cheapest around. Most of the time you have to sacrifice quality for price and ha na is no exception. However, even though it's not the best sushi it is not bad. On a food scale I'd give it a 7. but on a price scale a 10. not a bad compromise. The service can be slow and the place can be drafty but overall I would recommend it to those on a budget who like sushi. the Unagi it's half bad.

Ha Na's under staffed, mediocre location serves as the last place I'd recommend for Sushi in Capital Hill. There's no manager there so employees may run the place any way they choose - good or bad, depending on their mood I suspect. Don't even try to complain or get the message to the owners, because the person at the phone will argue with you about whether it was rude for them to hang up on you.

I live near this restaurant, and it's packed every time I pass by. So, I expected it to have good food. I am Japanese, and this place is NOT authentic at all. I ordered "tempura zarusoba," but that was completely disappointing. I will never go back.

Good food at a great price. The restaurant lacks ambience and service but the sushi is great and so is the seaweed salad. I would highly recommend this restaurant for the food but if you are looking for a romantic getaway or an authentic Japanese sushi restaurant, this is not the place.

This place reminds me of the crowds and noise of traditional Japanese sushi bars. The food is very nicely done, especially the sushi, though the rolls tend to be a bit Americanized with mayo in the tempura and spider rolls, ick!

The tempura is out of this world, and I'm not even a big tempura fan. The udon was savory and delicious, but you have to bring your own container if you want take-out. The Bento box was huge with a variety of foods and cheap at $5.25.

The service can be a tad slow because they're always busy, but the staff is friendly and accommodating.

Hana is a great value and friendly place with excellent asian food.

Hana is a small Japanese restaurant on Broadway. When I think of cheap but delicious sushi, thats the #1 place I think of. My favorite dish is the nabeyaki udon, which is a brothy udon (noodles) bowl served with chicken, tempura, eggs, and seaweed. I have tried nabeyaki udon from many Japanese restaurants, and by far, Hana is the best, and their price is also MUCH more reasonable too. Other good dish is the beef curry, which is my husbands favorite.

PROS: Excellent Sushi and Udon! Great Price
CONS: Small restaurant and bathroom is upstairs in the mall.

When we first moved to Seattle we were hungry for sushi and just happened to walk by this place and decided to give it a try. What a lucky accident it was! The food was good and the prices amazing! We had udon, agedashi and a variety of sushi. While not the best Japanese food I've ever had, for a casual cheap sort of place it was pretty dang good. The udon broth was excellent. The agedashi was quite good and is a dish easily screwed up by restaurants (it's a warm lighly fried tofu). Last, but not least, the sushi was fresh and cheap and excellent.
The atmosphere here is a little cramped, but it sorta adds to the ambiance to be rubbing elbows with all the pierced and tattooed hipsters rolling in from Broadway.

Hana is one of my favorite cheap sushi restaurants. The california rolls are not to be passed up. The miso soup is always hot and revitalizing. I also like to order the light and crispy tempura vegetables from time to time. the servcice is always effecient for this busy restaurant.

Hana's consistent with tasty fresh,sushi, and some of the worst service in Seattle.
Let's start with my favorite part: the sushi: It's fresh, inexpensive, offers generous amounts and it's worth the wait. I'd say it's almost worth the horrible service, but it's better to just opt for take-out.
The "Hana-Special" is out of this world good. With it's generous supply of 6 california rolls, 2 salmon, 2 tuna, and 2 tiger prawn, 2 eel, all for under $12.00.
However,the service is bad. The servers (most of them) have huge attitudes. Expect to wait awhile on weekends. Also, expect your server to neglact you. Expect that you may not get your drinks, and expect an attitude on the way out.
Bottomline: Best sushi in town, service horrendous, opt for take-out instead.

This funky little joint on Broadway has small tables and a veritable wallpapering of event posters, nothing too fancy. Pretty good spot for people watching, too, since you can see out onto Broadway.
Their rolls arent very big, but theyre cheap and tasty: I love their spicy tuna roll with its finely diced tuna and smelt roe. I know it sounds lame, but they also have the best chicken teriyaki I've had (and Im from Hawaii, the unofficial teriyaki capital of the world). Ask for it prepared skinless if youre watching your figure.
You can feed two for $20-$30 depending on your selections. Expect 15-30min waits after 7pm on the weekends. The staff might forget to check back with your table during that time as well, so warm up that flagging arm in advance. Stevie is always nice and friendly, so ask for her if you can.

As someone who has grown up with Japanese food, I have to say that the dishes here are very average if not slightly below. The taste of their food (sushi and noodle soups) aren't delicate or refined, but they're not bad. The ambiance is good (cozy atmosphere) and the service is fine, but if you're in the mood for stellar sushi, there are better places to go in Seattle.

You will not find fresher sushi anywhere in seattle. Because Hana is so busy, the fish is always fresh. Sashimi plates are also second to none. If you have a chance, try the monkfish liver... truly sublime, and available only one night a week. I have had guests from NYC and San Francisco tell me that Hana is better than anyplace in those cities.

Good place for a group of friends stopping for a quick bite to eat. Nothing you cant find anywhere else and its a little on the pricey side of the small array of sushi they have. None the less, its sushi, and in a great location close to many different areas.

This is, quite simply, the worst sushi I have ever eaten in my life. How, I would like to know, is it possible to make a simple cucumber roll taste bad? I'm not sure how they did it, but they did. There's a reason it's so cheap.

Good, consistent quality and value. Not a shi-shi seen and be seen place. It's like the Japanese version of a greasy spoon, but with raw fish and polite servers. Recently upgraded interior with new tables, chair, and a coat of paint. Also a lot of new staff... our server most recently was great! I can't recommend it enough if you don't need to have an aesthetically pleasing environment while eating your raw fish. I don't eat anything put seafood at this restaurant, so my rating will only apply to that.
