It's not a huge issue but numerous friends have said to watch the check for over charging. My wife and kids love it here so I've never really looked. Well that changed tonight. When I questioned the over charge I was told I was wrong and was told dish is AROUND 25-26 dollars. I was annoyed so I paid, on... More

We spent two nights in Albany and ate both dinners at this restaurant. We had an excellent waitperson and she helped us select food from the menu. We had Ma Pa Tofu, salmon, sushi and tempura and it was the best we have ever eaten. We're from Boston and have gone to many fine restaurants, but this is the best... More

We weren't disappointed in our dinner there last night. A bit different than other Hibachi restaurants that I have been to, but still good. We had the misso soup, clear soup and salad, all were very good. For the Hibachi dinner itself we had a choice of brown rice or noodles, both were good. There was the vegetables, were done... More

I've had two very bad incidents in the past few months at this popular Chinese-run Japanese steak house. The first was when I received my credit card statement and noticed that the tip I had left was changed. I notified my credit card company who credited me for the difference, and I assumed that Hana was notified. Yet, months later... More

Stopped in at Hana for an appetizer, drinks and a few sushi rolls. The bacon wrapped shrimp were good and we tried the twisted roll and western avenue roll. One of our favorite places for sushi, always a sure thing.

We dined there last night to celebrate my son and his girlfriends birthdays. We had a great time watching the chef prepare our food at the habachi grill. Holy Hotness when he sets it on fire. The food was very good and cooked to order. We started out with the spicy tuna sushi. Yummy. Then we watched as he prepared... More

Five of us went to Hana for my grand daughters birthday and enjoyed the hibachi. We sampled the chicken, steak, shrimp and lamb. All were quite good and like other Japanese restaurants we have been to. Much of the fun for this type of occasion is watching the food preparation and our chef did not let us down.

We had always seen this place with its purple lights, and one day me and my friends decided to check it out. We werent disappointed. They had great drinks, and delicious sushi. It was a tad expensive, but after a few beers that didnt bother us too much. The service was average but the food was great.

All the way around i'd say that Hana is very good. Atmosphere is large, and the sushi is always fresh. Location excellent, recommend to all.
