It is really a better than average sushi place but I don't think it quite makes 4 stars. The sushi is moderately priced and you get better portions than in a lot of higher priced sushi places. The fish is fresh and good quality as the owner also owns a fish market that supplies fish and other food stuffs to... More

My phone didn't capture the photo & video of his happy dancing as he did "flambe" stirfry pan flips making tasty lunch food. We celebrated our 44th & 2 birthdays of daughters. We love this place. Many children too yesterday on Saturday for lunch.

Husband and I stopped in last month for a rare kid-free lunch, and had some really good, interesting sushi. Our favorite was a fried oyster roll special, but everything was great!

For years, Niwano Hana has been preparing and serving fresh sushi and sashimi, expertly made to order, both at the sushi bar and at tables. Its kitchen produces reliably excellent dishes as well. Niwano Hana is warm and welcoming, and the service is good. There are daily specials and adventurous rolls. Like the always fresh fish, this place never feels... More

Food was ok. Salad fresh but elementary. Quality of sushi was average. Cucumber roll was unimaginative, and barely had any cucumbed. Service was good.

Located in a strip mall, this no-frills restaurant is surprisingly good. There is a wide variety of sushi & very reasonably priced.

We have been coming here off & on for 20 years. We haven't been here in over a year. The quality of sushi is not what is used to be and a little more expensive for what you get. Our party of 5 had reservations for 6:30pm on a Thu is early Aug. We arrived at 5:20pm were seated right... More

We have dined in and ordered carryout from here dozens of times over the past few years. It was our go-to carryout sushi place and the quality and food was quite good. However, I am concerned about my experience earlier this week after placing a carryout order when the following happened: 1) One roll that I always ordered was reduced... More
