Best sushi in the Portland area!. In Alaska, we had a favorite sushi place we always went to. Moving from Alaska to Portland, my boyfriend & I tried place after place, not able to find a good sushi place that came even close to our favorite back in AK. Until we found Le Hana! The food is great, I like the idea of French-Japanese fusion. The presentation is way cool, and you won't find their rolls anywhere else. I highly recommend this restaurant!
Great Food and Excellent Waiter.
We went here on Mother's Day with my wife and my 9 month old sond.
I feel what makes a great restaurant isn't always excellent, excellent food (it helps of course) but it's the individual as your waiter that represents the restaurant. It's worth going here just to experience the level of excellent service you can receive from Mike. He is well informed and educated about the food and the different Sake. He will even know the origin of the food, Sake and history behind it. He is very courteous, helpful and not hesitant to make suggestions. And more important not offended if you don't agree with his suggestions.
The food was also GREAT and exactly as Mike described it would be. So...excellent service and food made for a great dinner. Not to mention our son was very restless and unhappy but Mike and the staff was so gracious and patient with our son.
The owners of this resaurant should REALIZE and honorably COMMEND Mike on what a great employee they have and the excellent representation of their establishment he gives to Le Hana. Le Hana and Mike, in my opinion far exceeds the other 5 star and highly regarded waiter's at other restaurants we have been to. Ask for Mike and he will surely make it a pleasant dinner for you.
May, 2010 - CLOSED . . . CLOSED . . . CLOSED. So sad. :-( Le Hana's is no longer open in Hillsboro.
July 16, 2009 - Le Hana has a fabulous special right now that could end any time, so you might want to call and check. THE DEAL: Buy a drink (doesn't have to be alcoholic) and your bill is 50% OFF!! They have new rolls they are debuting as well.
Le Hana's is our favorite sushi restaurant anywhere! The sushi is always amazingly consistent and the wait staff is always attentive and kind. The edamame and miso soup before the meal is wonderful. The presentation of the sushi makes the experience just that much better. Try to Tuna Avocado Tower. They offer tons of interesting meals for those who aren't sushi fans as well from steak to salmon with a Japanese flair. Mike is definitely what keeps us coming back - he is excellent!
Great sushi rolls, service not good.. 7/25/08 Dinner 6PM. Not to crowded. Ordered drinks and appetizers and main course. Took forever to get drinks & appetizers. Don't order the Capresi wraps, bland and very messy. Why waste your appetite on these! Also not a place to order mixed drinks - very light on the alchohol. Finally get drinks and appetizers and 30 seconds later our entrees were set down on the table. I hate that! Would like a little time between courses. All the rolls and sushi we ordered were just wonderfull. Avocado roll was great as well as the unagi roll. Miso soup came with the meal but we never got it until we tracked down the waitress half way thru our meal to bring the soup. Sevice needs to to pick up - more attentive I guess - but the food was very good.
Absolutely Delicious Food!!!. My husband and I have been going to La Hana since it opened its Hillsboro location. In fact, we are regulars and you will most likely see us dining there every Saturday afternoon. We do not consider ourselves creatures of habit and like to venture out to other places, but honestly we are disappointed everytime we do. This is why we keep coming back to Le Hana. Personally I love their sushi and am addicted to their Shrimp & Goat Cheese Gyoza. Try the La Hana rolls -- delicious!! The staff is wonderful and know our favorite table. I'm shocked that there are so many write-ups about slow service, because I seriously doubt anyone frequents La Hana as much as we do and we have NEVER had poor service. On occasion they may be slower than usual, but its not slow enough to be dinged for it.
wouldn't go back on my own, but if invited would stick to the sushi.
I live in portland, so finding the Hillsboro location was a bit difficult and the online map is misleading. I should know better if they have to put on their website description that they're "high end" - if you have to say it, then you're not. Accoustics did nothing but amplify the cackling table nearby even though our party of 8 out numbered them. Service was prompt enough. We just bought the G sake - so a given decent bottle, but not refrigerated and the flasks with ice compartment, while interesting I guess, don't quite chill the sake and water dumps out when it melts. the Japanese part of this so called 'fusion' was good - the French part, not so much. Good/great: nigiri (halibut amazing), Grand Fleur roll, spicy watermelon soup, gorgonzola cheesecake; Mediocre: tuna tower, cajun ahi, spicy hand rolls; Poorly executed: over-cooked mahi mahi in butternut squash bisque, pork with apple fritters (fritters were ok, but they used the batter to stuff the pork -- grainy and too sweet), pork rolls , fried rice with veg-all. ew.
While it was fine, I'm not sure the vision is being accomplished. Perhaps they're wary of the already over-saturated sushi market and thought throwing French in there would bring it some appeal. I don't know. For me, I would not go back on my own accord, and if invited, I'd stick to the sushi.
Waited an hour for our food. First, let me say that this was some of the best sushi I have had in town. The La Hana roll is to die for! That alone is the reason I'm considering going back. The Tokyo Ice Tea did just what the menu said it would - knocked me off my feet! And also but me in a good enough mood not to leave the restaurant. On this night, my husband and I were going to see the Cirque du Soleil show; we gave ourselves an hour and a half for dinner and drinks, which under any other circumstances is plenty of time. Our food at La Hana took over an hour. My sushi roll came 20 minutes before my husbands stuffed pork. They said the pork took longer to cook, but I've grilled pork...it does not take an hour to cook, not even close. Besides, his pork was completely uncooked on one end. It's hard for me to recommend this restaurant because I don't think you should ever wait over an hour for your food and you should be able to dine together (get your food at the same time). Time after time, my husband and I watched people walk out in a huff before they their food arrived, so I know we weren't alone in our experience. We watched people finish their drinks, complain to their waiters, and go. Nothing we received was at a discount or on the house, but it should have been.
SLOOOOOOOOOOOOWEST SERVICE EVER. It couldn't GET any slower than this. Employees are very freindly and the food isn't even bad. You just wait forever to get it. Have tried this place 3 times just to make sure I wasn't jumping to conclusions but unfortunately it was slow every time....
worst i've had. i wasnt going to give any stars minus 5 stars the fish is not fresh iwas staying at the hotel in marriot and it was reccomended to go to lahana so we went was not seated immedeatley. the food was horrible so left as fast as possible
best happy hour. my boyfriend found this place one night... we decided to try it out for happy hour.. SO GOOD! the sushi is great, the happy hour prices are great... you can fill up for two people on about $20. the prices for regular dinner menu are a little pricey, but if you like sushi it is worth it. they have a unique menu that i like because it is not the same old same old that everyone else is serving. they have a nice drink menu and the inside is beautiful. they have a nice bar and an upstairs room for i guess what you could call the "high rollers" of sushi. we love making it there for happy hour. the service is great, they are really friendly.. except for who i think is the owner he is kind of intimidating.. anyways. we love it. happy hour :)
