I work a block away from this restaurant and went there 3 times for lunch....each and every time I left the restaurant highly disappointed.
First of all, anyone should be suspicous of a Japanese restaurant with no Japanese (Asians) in there as customers...typical crowd is the white guy putting extra wasabi on with their california roll (& think they are taking a walk on the wild side). 7-11 sushi was better than this.
100% not authentic. Japanese rolls their eyes when Chinese/Korean make Japanese food...but Chinese/Korean chefs rolls their eyes when Vietnamese guys make Japanese food...and that is what Hakata Sushi is, a Vietnamese/Japanese restaurant (I'm surprised they don't serve bubble tea & falafels!).
The reason I think so poorly of this restaurant is because of my last & final experience there. I ordered Salmon sashmi during the lunch rush and server informed me they might not have it???? That's like Mcdonalds saying they don't have fries for lunch.
Finally, I was served the sashmi and it was ROCK hard!!! It was obvious it was not even properly defrosted and they served me a salmon sickle...disgusting! No self respecting Japanese restaurant would have served this to a customer. Ok, maybe I was too hard on them, so I order some rolls...appalled again!! The sushi rolls were almost the size of my fist with the insides falling out. Did these guys use a carpet instead of bamboo to make these rolls??? Sloppy, sloppy, sloppy!
After reading this review and you still insist on eatiing your generic california roll/ teriyaki, there are sooo many other choices on west broadway.
Do yourself a favour and walk 1 or 2 blocks down broadway (there are at last 4-6 other Japanese in the radius) and don't eat this mall food made at sit down prices.
Still don't believe me, go there yourself and you'll know I am not exagerating.
