Time Out Says

The restaurant’s name means “fireworks” in Japanese, and while the food – which is considerably more low-key than in many of the city’s more fancy pants Japanese establishments – is good, it most likely won’t blow you away. Staff are warm and friendly and the decor is smart, in particular the private rooms with sunken seating and tatami flooring. Lighting throughout is also nicely dim and moody. The menu, meanwhile, is loaded with traditional dishes, from seaweed salads, sushi, sashimi and a host of noodle and rice dishes, some packed with serious heat. Like its neighbouring restaurant, the decent Korean spot Sonamu (both sit on the same floor of Deira’s Asiana Hotel), Hanabi is often populated by Asian diners on the lookout for something authentic, which is proud testament to the quality and depth of its dishes. If you are after something delicious, no-nonsense and good value for money then absolutely head this way. But if you want a little more bang for your buck, there are plenty more showboating Japanese spots in the city.
