First time at Sunlitun, but found Japanese Food easily. During lunchtime it's not so crowded but it's very nice there. Food was very good. We had the Day Dream the California Roll and the Wasabi Challenge. Everything was excellent. Please take care Wasabi Challenge is REALLY spicy. Recommendation: anytime

Date night with the wife. We were in Beijing for the week. Sushi sounded very good, so I found this place on TripAdvisor. We arrived about 30 minutes early not knowing they weren't open yet. But, they seated us just fine. We sat at the sushi bar. Most all the dishes we had were very good. One roll flavor was... More

We ordered a whole bottle of sake, which is more expensive than the rest of food we had, definitely worth of it. We wanted it cold, so the waiter put the bottle into a jar to keep it cool, it tasted amazing! Food and service ... hmm it's so so

If you're gonna go to Hatsune, you should always go to this branch. Although their selection is very creamy, mayo-y, and cheesy, it is the best sushi you'll find in Beijing, hands down. The selection is not too too pricey considering the quality, we would usually spend around 5-600 rmb but we would be rolling out of there from stuffing... More

This place was always a popular stop with my coworkers when in Beijing. Some of the best sushi I have had outside of Japan.

Hatsune is in a convenient spot--you can stop here after a walk through Sanlitun, or before an evening out through the bar scene. For those who seek authentic sushi and sahimi, this is not going to satisfy you. But if you're a fan of Japanese flavors, and like 'fusion' style food, this isn't bad. Among a group of 10, we...

We were 5 persons having dinner. We had a mix of sushi and other dishes. The sushi was great and the steak teppanyiaki too. The burritos were good, not awesome. Nice place.
