Expert review of Hatsune
A Beijing institution, this hip eatery bridges the culinary cultures of California and Japan with its unconventional, fusion-inspired sushi rolls, craft beers and an extensive sake selection.
Raw fish aficionados probably won’t find their nirvana here, but the dozens of varieties of sushi rolls are great fun, with rice that exhibits just the right amount of vinegar zing. Take your pick from tempura that’s crisp, light and oil-free, delicious grilled mackerel and a small selection of sashimi.
An ‘open sesame’ type entrance sets the tone for this hip, modish restaurant. The sake flows until late, and it can be lively any night of the week.
A bit mixed – sometimes efficient and unobtrusive, other times frustratingly lacklustre.
On the third floor of The Village shopping complex in Sanlitun.
If you order big on sashimi and sake, the sky’s the limit. Come in a group and you can expect to pay upwards of RMB 200 per person.
The original branch is still going strong after nearly 10 years in the CBD, on Guanghua Road.
