We ate here while at the Vancouver International Airport and were pleased the food was excellent. The Bento Box was generously filled with a good variety and the Chicken YakiSoba serving was generous. Tea was hot and continuously refilled as we ate. It's not always possible to find good food at an airport!

Conveniently located in YVR terminal before security. Great place to get fast Japanese food at great prices. The drinks were cheap however the food needed some attention like the chicken and beef was very fatty. Excellent service. Not certain if I would return again if they do not get better cuts of meats. Sushi was delicious. Our server was awesome.... More

We stumbled onto this restaurant as we were touring through Vancouver. It looked very interesting on the outside so we decided to go in. At first we thought that the food was only Japanese, but as we explored the menu we found that it was truly a 100% Asian restaurant. The menu was filled with eclectic and traditional all Asian...

There was a long (20 min) line at hanami today, as it has a good reputation. I enjoyed my combo of mixed vegetables and orange chicken. The cashier refilled my water bottle for free, which I thought was really nice.

Right next to the entrance to passport control at Yvr airport, Hanami is perfectly located for a quick, last minute bite just before saying goodbye to friends and family. It serves a small but adequate menu of Cantonese and Japanese items, and the food is reasonably good, nothing to shout about though. It's a bit nicer than eating at the... More

A basic Japanese restaurant with very fresh sashimi, but a limited menu. A great alternative to all the western restaurants around and the food court nearby. Don't expect any exotic dishes. A lot of airport staff eats here because of their 10% discount policy for them. The staff is not overly friendly.

The food is just like Panda express or Cajun in the U.S. We ordered the wonton noodles soup with BBQ pork. Don't trust the good looking photo up on top. The pork is no where close to the look or the taste. Not bad, but 100% misleading due to the sauce. If you are on a sugar free diet, don't... More

this full-service restaurant at YVR offers consistently good service and excellent sushi, given the constant traffic of travelers. They have a special menu for airport employees and a stash of magazines to read while you wait for your food. The portions are very generous and beautifully presented.
