Came with my wife. We ordered gyoza(dumplings), teppenyaki udon, salmon and tuna sushi.The gyoza was good. Not great but no complaints. The teppenyaki udon was quite tasty. The sushi was not good. The salmon was okay but not tasty. The tuna sushi had no flavor...at all. You would never know you were eating tuna unless you looked at it. While sushi was edible (and I ate it) it was probably the worst sushi I've ever eaten. I would definitely never order it again from here. The sushi gets 1 star. The other two dishes I'd give 3 to 3.5 stars.More

Food was amazing. We had beef teriyaki, lemon scallops and dumpling. The beef fell apart in your mouth. Scallops were cooked in from of us and were absolutely perfect. Dumpling were delicious. We were very impressed.More

My family and I were looking for a good restaurant that would satisfy adults and kids. Hama was an excellent choice. Friendly staff, delicious food, and very clean place. We ordered and everything arrived super quick. Kitchen has a big glass where you can see...them preparing the dishes. A bit pricey, but worth paying.More

This is what you call authentic. Went to some other places but this was the best. No matter what restaurants i go to, Hama will always be the main one for me. Nice friendly staff, I asked for some special requests because I have allergies...and they were very accommodating.More

Started with gyoza then mains included ramen, sukiyaki and chicken teriyaki. All food was good especially the spicy miso ramen. Service was quick and friendly. All in all a good place to eat.

Was hangry - this is not a review of the food as I didn’t stay to eat. Wanted to start with Sake. Asked to buy a bottle shown in menu.. was told I can only buy a small jug (half the price of the bottle...) “I want the bottle” “Bottle is too big, sir” “But it’s on the menu and that’s what I want” This went on for about 5 minutes .. eventually I gave up trying to get any logic or service Poor managementMore

We visited Hama in December 2019 and ate Sushi with some Sake there. Back home in Finland we tend to eat Sushi quite often and we've gotten used to Tuna being a little bit hardy and usually don't order it. Here we tried our luck...among other ones also on the Tuna Sushi with jalopenos and it was as smooth as can be. All meals we had were excellent and fresh tasting. We have to also bring up the service - The restaurant had a lightning speed service (the fastest on our trip to Philippines !). Really enjoyed our meal and recommend to try this restaurant if you're in the neighbourhood and want to try out some good sushi !More

if you want japanese food, go somewhere else (and yes, there are legit japanese restaurants in the island). it's at d'mall, so yes, it's convenient. we got a ramen and a 12pc gyoza, was not happy with the taste at all. serving size was ok...though. i guess if you're super hungry, there are no other restaurants available and you can't wait to eat, sure come to this place.More

limited choice for the premier japanese restaurant on the island, quite expensive, but good professional service, always friendly

It's close to the beach so it's easy to find, and their servings are quite large so it's perfect for a meal after lots of water activities. I'm a fan of the huge sushi boat that we ordered, it had different types of sushi for...everyone to enjoy. They have great ramen which was nice since it got rainy and a little cool when we visited. Their drinks (mango shake, frozen iced tea, lemonade) looked really fancy and were fun to drink. The service was good and I was very satisfied with everything ☺️More
