I went here with my wife, son, and daughter-in-law. We all had the hibachi supper. I had the steak, my wife and daughter-in-law had the chicken hibachi, and my son had the calamari hibachi. All were great, we shared and swapped with each other to try the different meats. I was especially impressed with the calamari. Our hibachi chef put... More

Seated upstairs and friendly wait staff. I had the Makimono Sushi dinner,very good and large portion. We also had the shrimp/vegetable tempura,very good. Each dinner $15,excellent value and we'll be back.

Great price with great service and great food. Try their yum yum sauce - it's addictive and really enhances the flavor of the food. Or, go in for lunch because the prices are cheaper (I regret not doing this more often). The service is consistently top notch and it's my favorite place to eat in Libertyville.

It's been a while since we've eaten there -- but we really like the owners -- they are good people, they work so hard to maintain the quality of the food and the service. I find that the prices are a bit high, and we don't always like to share a table with strangers, but every time we've we've eaten... More

Love the place whether we go their with friends, family or get take out. It's not the new bright and shiny place but they are friendly, attentive and make sure you have a great experience. The rolls are very good as is the Sashimi. The fried rice is a favorite. We had a great time at the Hibachi with our... More

My wife and I recently attended a customer appreciation night at Gregory Infiniti In Libertyville. At this event there were several local restaurants offering food. One of these restaurants was Hanakawa Japanese Steak & Sushi. I tried a few of their of sushi rolls and they were all very good. The employees were nice and cheerful.

Our family loves the food from this restaurant! We prefer to eat at the individual tables upstairs over the hibachi tables on the lower floor but regardless of your seating preference, the food is very good! We have tried numerous dishes but especially like their sushi, chicken teriyaki and fried rice. The service staff is friendly and impressive, often remembering... More

Hard to believe this place is only 31 out of 78... Had the filet mignon teriyaki, and it was superb. The fried rice was the best I have ever had anywhere. My hubby's garlic shrimp with calamari combo was excellent also. Just visiting over Labor Day, but I guarantee we will be returning next time we are in the area.... More
