I've been here couple times with friends. It's WAY TOO overpriced and they really don't give you much. Some of the fish looked really unappetizing, like it was going bad. In any case, the food isn't worth the money. Plus, the place is SO cramped!!
Maybe if you just need a central place to meet a friend this would be an ok place. The decor and service are lacking. However the fish was of good quality. I would not recommend taking a date here at all.
Living in Tacoma, where there is very little in the way of great sushi (Fujiya's really being the only really good stuff, but rather pricey)...whenever I am in Seattle and have the chance...this is my top choice for sushi. I swear the wasabi is hotter there than anywhere I've ever been, but the sushi chef always laughs when I say that and says it's no different. Overall flavor, freshness, and value make this my favorite place. It's only rival used to be Nikko at the Westin. They used to have a great all you can eat for lunch that was the best value ever.
Hana is an excellent choice for those with a tight pocketbook. In my lean years, hana got me through some rough times. Only place where you can still get $2 sushi at reasonable quality. I loved the atmosphere too.
Seattle's gotten so shishi in the last 10 years, it's nice to know there are still restaurants that have maintained their authenticity and atmosphere through all the change.
The food is always fresh at Hana and it's affordable, the portions are reasonable, and the staff are Japanese, and so are many of the patrons. That's always a good indication for me!
It's also kid friendly! Our kids love to go there:-)
