Fuji Hana Shallowford Japaneese Restaurant,Marietta Review
• Great dinner show to bring the family to
• Inexpensive lunch specials
• Amazing service
• Delicious food
• Clean, welcoming atmosphere
Famous for their fantastic dinner shows, Fuji Hana is a restaurant that offers both sushi and hibachi for lunch and dinner. There are several locations around the Atlanta area but the one this review is about is on the corner of Shallowford Road and Johnson Ferry in East Cobb. I have also visited the location on the other side of Johnson Ferry and had a great experience there.

Earlier today, a friend of mine and I decided to go out for lunch. I had a restaurant.com gift certificate to Fuji Hana for $10 with a minimum purchase of $20 that was only valid for lunch on Monday through Friday so we decided to head over there. We got there around 2pm and waited for the host to come over and seat us. It seems as though they only had one waiter who also doubled as the host during the time we were there. He was a great waiter and the service was amazing, but it did seem as though he had his hands full with the amount of customers. He informed us that we had to order by 2:20 in order to get food and that the restaurant closed at 3, so once we were seated, things were a bit rushed.
The actual décor of the restaurant was very nice. It was very clean and well kept. There was a sushi bar where people could sit and order straight from the sushi chef.

The restaurant.com gift certificate was not valid on drinks or any of the lunch specials, which I thought was rather annoying because they had some wonderful specials going on. For example, I think there was a special that had 2 grilled chicken kabobs with fried rice and various kinds of sushi for only $7.25. However, the normal priced lunch items were not expensive. I chose the chicken hibachi, which came with steamed rice, miso soup, and ginger salad. However, I chose to trade out the steamed rice for fried rice, adding another $2 to my meal. The hibachi ended up being $10 total. We were seated at a normal booth so we did not have the chef do the cool hibachi show, but I believe it is cheaper to sit at the booth.
In general, the items on the menu were very inexpensive. They were even having $1 sushi (per piece, not per roll) but I could not order the sushi with the restaurant.com gift certificate. It seemed as though they had many rules that applied to the use of those gift certificates, which was odd to me because at many of the other places I’ve used the certificates at, the only items it wouldn’t count toward were alcoholic beverages. However, the dinner prices were a bit higher than the lunch prices. I think the chicken hibachi would have run you about $14 at dinner versus the $10 I paid during lunch.

For dessert, we had the green tea ice cream, which was absolutely delicious in my opinion. My friend wasn’t a huge fan of it, but I think it was one of those dishes where you would either really enjoy it or really hate it.
Overall, I had a great experience at the Shallowford location today and have had great experiences at the Johnson Ferry location as well. The dishes can get a bit pricey around dinnertime, but lunch was a great option. The service was great even though I felt bad for the poor waiter who had the whole restaurant to himself. I highly recommend Fuji Hana to anyone who loves hibachi style cooking!
