While Phoenix boasts plenty of trendy places serving rolls upon rolls of rice wrapped in seaweed and fish, only a few stand out. At Hana, which is located in a nondescript strip mall, you feel like you’ve randomly walked into someone’s personal dining room. That changes when you taste chef Koji Hashimoto’s sushi, whether it’s red snapper or mackerel, with fish regularly flown in and artfully prepared. Standouts include the Hana roll with shrimp, crab, and pickled root with tempura flakes. You’ll feel like a regular after your first visit.
