Consistent quality although service is hit or miss. They stick to tradition unlike many of the Japanese restaurants these days that rely on mayonnaise and crunchy toppings. A go-to restaurant for the family.
It was by accident we found this restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised. It was Father's Day so the restaurant was a bit busy.
For starters we had one of their specials: special California maki. It did not disappoint as the 8 pieces went very fast. Our last order was also a maki - Na Futo Maki. It was also outstanding. We also had the ika ichiyaboshi which was served with a mayo-based dip. Crisply grilled, it was as fresh as fresh could get.
For salads we shared the seafood salad which was excellent. The shabu salad, on the other hand, wasn't outstanding.
Our main course was ramen. I had the Kaisen ramen which is the seafood ramen. My wife had the Tonkutsu ramen while my daughter had the spicy one. All were excellent.
The food quality over-all was excellent and I think it's because the restaurant has an authentic Japanese chef. While I cannot confirm this, it's the only explanation I can think of. What was a bit confusing was the order in which the dishes were served. The water came a tad too long.
This now moves into my list of "best Japanese restaurants" in Manila.
We frequent this Restaurant Because The Food is Really Good, consistent and they use Quality Ingredients.
The service is also very Good.
If your a Fish lover,
you Can't go wrong with the Gindara Teriyaki or the Tuna Head.
Their california maki special is also very good!
One of the few pioneer Japanese restaurants in BF Homes Paranaque. This restaurant has been in BF for years. Other restaurants have come and go, but Hanakazu has stood the test of time, despite it's steep prices.
If you have the budget, you can definitely afford to binge in this restaurant. But, even if you don't, you have to give it a try as this is as authentic as it gets.
Their food is so good, it will make you forget the price.
Everything in their menu is worth a try and worth every centavo.
If you find yourself in the South, pay this place a visit, open up that wallet and treat yourself to some good old Japanese cuisine. Try not to pay attention to the prices and enjoy every bite, savor that flavor and imagine yourself eating somewhere in Tokyo in one of those Izakayas.
