Not a Good Night for Sushi in North Central Phoenix :(

I have been looking forward to trying Hana for sushi. My boyfriend
HATES fish (folks, he's never even tried it, go figure LOL) anyhow I
actually get him to come along to Hana with me, he even agreed to sit at the
sushi bar as long as he could order from the menu! I was shocked! Who
took my bf and left this guy! LOL So...we arrive at Hana and ask to be
seated at the sushi bar we are then told the Sushi Chef was not in
tonight! What was that? Come again? They said they were only serving off the
menu. I was surprised to say the least, having never heard that a chef
wasn't there! I was really dissapointed. We opted not to stay and he
said he'd still do the sushi thing with me and where to next? So we went
up to Mr. Sushi or Akihana, whatever name it's under now.

Mr. Sushi, was not good. The sushi was marginal. I was surprised,
especially since it has received consistantly good reviews here. Based on
sushi alone I would not go boyfriend will never go back. His
dinner was a whole other experience. He ordered the teriyaki chicken
dinner which came with miso soup and a salad. He wasn't drinking the miso
soup, I asked him if he didn't like it and he said it tasted
"different". So I took a sip, it was watered down, barely any flavor. His dinner was not memorable and he doesn't want to go back, ever. LOL

Such a wierd night. Has anyone been to Hana and not had the chef there?
Do I need to call ahead of time?]

Want to stay up to date with this post?
