Wake up and smell the roses, or at least a sixer of pork or prawn gyoza. Hanami Japanese Restaurant is a Mount Lawley favourite for superb Asian food with a distinct Japanese focus, found up on Beaufort Street along the retail strip north of Walcott Street, next to Subway, Mount Lawley Hardware, and The Cheesecake Shop. Hanami is the traditional Japanese appreciation for flowers, most notably cherry blossoms – to which there are dedicated huge national festivals – and here at Perth’s Hanami you can certainly indulge the art of flower viewing if you can imagine finely sculpted servings of fresh sashimi and delicately garnished Japanese dishes to be a sort of floral arrangement, as transient as a plum blossom but twice as tasty.
Seafood lovers take note: Hanami Japanese Restaurant is where you’ll find the freshest sashimi that Perth has to offer, sitting on the menu alongside perfectly rolled sushi, tasty teppanyaki and and other Japanese delights. If you’re not a fan of fish, don’t worry, because with plenty of meat and vegetable options on the menu too, there’s something to suit everyone. Located on Beaufort Street in Mount Lawley, this Japanese joint draws in sushi addicts from all over Perth, with its understatedly stylish interior that brings together Japanese traditions and modern aesthetics making it the perfect place for a number of different occasions, whether it's an intimate dinner date, a gathering with friends or a family meal.
From the freshest sashimi to sushi hand rolls, reverse rolls, nigiri and creatively presented temaki, seafood lovers in for a real treat at Hanami Japanese Restaurant. Other delicious choices include teppanyaki, a Japanese hot plate grilled dish with garlic and onion. We recommend trying the wagyu beef teppanyaki with mustard sauce, or the lobster with vinegar sauce. For the full Japanese experience, pair your meal with some sake from the lengthy selection of imported bottles, or some Japanese fruit wine. To guarantee a table at Hanami Japanese Restaurant in Perth’s Mount Lawley, making a reservation in advance is recommended.
Amazing food. The tempura vegetables are out of this world! Lovely atmosphere and you can BYO ($2 corkage per person). Highly recommend. A range of sushi / sashimi also available
We can always expect consistently fantastic food and great service when attending Hanami and make it a regular spot to dine with family and friends.
The 2nd time I have been to the restaurant in as many weeks. The food, a good choice from the menu and service are excellent.
We come here at least once a month. Love the food. It is good value. Sashimi is the best. So fresh and good. Waiting time is short too
Having just returned from Japan we were craving more of their wonderful food. Hanami was recommended and we were so glad we visited the restaurant. The staff were very attentive and efficient, (push the button on your table for service) it has a modern casual feel in atmosphere with a Japanese touch. The food was fantastic we enjoyed every dish, sharing was the way to go for us (5) and we could not finish all that we ordered. Will certainly return soon. Nancy W.
The service is great, polite, fast and the food is fresh and amazing. I went twice in one weekend and will happily go again when the chance comes up. It was a great experience both times as the second time I sat in the front, in the traditional chairs where you take your shoes off.
We always have a great time at Hanami. Good food and the people are lovely. Its great location as well as it makes a nice evening out especially when there are a lot of coffee shops nearby that we can continue our evening.
So disappointed on this occasion as last time we really enjoyed. We were rushed to order and then everything came all at once. One dish didn’t even arrive and after we placed our order, we never saw a staff member to get water or another drink or take away one of the 10 empty dishes. We spare no expense when we dine here but we won’t be going back any time soon. The food was good as always but service let them down.
The food was delicious but they forgot to take our order. We waited for a very long time trying to catch the eye of one of the waitresses but they were rushing around and not looking up. I had to go to the counter to get them to come. Having said that the food was delicious and I will be going back
Easy to book. Fantastic food menu and delicious. BYO wine was good option. For 5 adults we shared in 5 entrees, 5 sushi choices and a medium sashimi for a very reasonable price. Highly recommended and will be back again soon
