Ever since Nagasaki Inn closed in Lexington, I've been looking for a replacement. I ventured out to Hananoki today for lunch. There were only two cars in the parking lot when I arrived at 12:30 pm and they'd been open an hour...I should've taken the clue. The restaurant sign had weeds so high it blocked the restaurant name and the... More

This was the best Japanese Teppanyaki restaurant I have eaten at in America. Portions were large with superb quality of ingredients. Our chef with Tyler and he is talented and witty, we were highly entertained. The Sushi we very good also.

Large great scallops. Service was excellent. Food and service is better than ambiance. First time there, would eat there again. Nothing fancy , but liked it.

Not a good place for large groups. Had a reservation for group of 30. We were told to sit where the red napkins were. We sat at 4 tables total. Not enough cooks on duty to accommodate us. 4 different cooks that cooked meal for each table. Instead of cooking at the same time, the cooks waited until each table... More

This is a STAPLE of our eating routine. At least 1X per month we eat at Hananoki. We LOVE the staff, BJ and Chef make the experience amazing always. We had one of our favorite chefs, Ryan, introduce us to "Spicy" fried rice made with Siracha and we now CRAVE it... don't want to eat it any other way! When... More

If it is true that you can tell the cleanliness of a restaurant's kitchen by it's restrooms, gross! I wish we had checked it out before we ordered. We would have eaten elsewhere. The sushi wasn't fresh and even the presentation was disappointing. My thoughts... skip Hananoki!

In the entire 30 years of my life, I have never walked out of a restaurant....until I went to hananoki. I took my 3 year old son to hananoki on Thursday evening. He had never been to hibachi, so I was really excited for him to experience this for the first time. But as soon as we walked through the... More

I recently ate at this restaurant and I wasn't impressed. First after our table was full we still had to wait for 30 mins for the chef to come. The show he put on was ok nothing special. The food was not great at all. The fried rice was hard and lacking in flavor. The lobster was over cooked. The... More
