Hamaru Yakitori and Sushi is a hidden 2-floor, 60-seater restaurant in The Food Hive, Quezon City that offers a modern and sustainable take on Japanese food and drinks.
Fun Fact: "Hamaru" loosely translates to "to get addicted to" or to "go crazy over something" in Japanese. The owners chose this word to signify they serve "crazy, good food".
This restaurant was born out of the owners’ need for a place that has good ambiance plus serves great drinks and food. They even consulted with Chef Niño Laus of Ninyo Fusion to produce their unique best-sellers that you just have to try. So let’s get right to them!
