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.
