I'll start by admitting that I thoroughly enjoyed the "social-eating" aspect of Hanahana. Social, because, you are sat around a grill at which your food is prepared and cooked in front of you. This was fun and different and definitely a plus for those fussier customers who like to know exactly what they are eating.
The food was average though I failed to justify the high-cost for such small portions of food. Usually I would look over such an aspect but when faced with a small amount that left nothing to boast about it did feel as though we were left feeling, somewhat, tricked.
Another issue to raise would be the attitude of the staff. A member of our party had an issue with a vegetarian side dish being missing from his order. I'll admit that, at the other end of the long table, I wasn't really paying attention to what was happening, though I picked up on the fact that they were reluctant to believe that he was telling the truth.
The restaurant is decorated nicely and seemed clean and inviting, though I'd agree that the toilets could do with updating.
We were wished good-night on our departure and so I wasn't left feeling personally upset with the whole experience. Though I wouldn't rush back, I'd not rule out giving them a chance again in the future.
