Travel + Leisure Names Hana Japanese Eatery in Best Sushi Restaurants in the U.S.


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.
