We were recommended to come here for the sushi. It was very good. I did think the portions were a little small for the price but we had an overall great experience.

If you haven't eaten here and you like Asian food, then what are you waiting for? I and family and friends have eaten here several times in the past couple months. We've found the food to be very good--love their Udon noodles! Friends order the various sushi and rave about it. Their apps are yummy! Wait staff are knowledgable and... More

We stopped at Hanabi for lunch on our way through Duluth. The interior was a bit off-putting--dark, a bit funky, the space divided in an unusual way--but the sushi was excellent and the service was attentive and helpful.

Kiss of fire roll-AMAZING! Dragon roll- pretty good. Service - Mediocre. Overall - best sushi around and a gem for the Midwest, if your used to fresh sushi from Japan then go back to Japan and eat sushi. If your in the Midwest eat here!

Hanaib it is located in downtown Duluth on First and First St., across from the CHUM Center. The parking is probably the worst part of this restaurant. With their modern art, colorful neon lights, and sophisticated but fun atmosphere, they’re a place for a more mature crowd. Hanabi is a good place for a fun night out with friends or... More

The shrimp fried rice is absolutely amazing. I have never experienced such flavor and moistness. All the sushi is amazing. I could eat here every day if I could! Only downfall I the cost is too high comparably to other similar restaurants.

Best sushi around. Have dined hear several times, both lunch and dinner. Always meets my high expectations. Try the leechee fruit martini. The sushi sashimi platter is my favorite.

Far and away the best options for sushi in Minnesota. Even Minneapolis/St. Paul have few that will even rival the quality of this food. Order the Anchor's Tattoo roll and get a whole new spin on what such can be. You'll have to forego the look of the neighborhood (there is a homeless shelter across the street), so comments from...
