I live very close to Hara, and my boyfriend and I get it all the time. The prices are great and the rolls are delicious. When you order takeout they give you free edamame and miso soup for each person, and if you eat there you usually get edamame, miso AND green tea ice cream for free. Their happy hour is insanely long, something like 3:30 to 9:30. \r
I've never had a problem with service, at dinnertime it takes a little while to get seated because it's so popular, but so what? Any crowded restaurant is like that.\r
Our happy sushi world was recently shattered, however, when a Boston roll (raw salmon on top) gave my boyfriend a terrible bout of food poisoning that involved uncontrollable vomiting and a trip to the ER. I was lucky enough to remain unscathed. Call us stupid but we've went back since then because it's so good, and so far no more poisoning.
Pros: amazing prices, really good food, lots of freebies
Cons: a one-time food poisoning
