HAMA, Boracay’s top Japanese restaurant, celebrates its 17th birthday, as it continues to proudly offer a unique blend of traditional and contemporary Japanese cuisine. From fresh sushi to mouth-watering teppanyaki dishes, Hama strengthens its reputation further as a must-visit gastronomy destination on the island.

Visit Hama for authentic and mouth-watering Japanese fare in Boracay.

Located at the center of the lively D’Mall, Station 2, Boracay, Hama provides a Zen-like, casual ambiance that perfectly complements its beachfront location. It’s easy to spot, as strings of red and black Japanese lanterns line their alfresco roof, while the inside seating area has wood and stone natural elements, reminiscent of a minimalist Japanese garden.

The name “hama,” meaning “beach” in Japanese, is a fitting tribute to its close proximity to Boracay’s pristine white sands and gorgeous blue seas, which a three-minute walk can access. This casual setting, combined with the vibrant atmosphere of D’Mall, makes Hama an ideal spot for intimate lunches and family gatherings. Since its opening in 2007, HAMA has built an esteemed reputation as a favorite dining spot among tourists, known for its memorable authentic Japanese dishes that delight first-time travelers, and patrons coming back for more.

Owned by the successful duo Juan Elizalde and Paolo Occhionero, the masterminds behind the other island-popular dining establishments Aria Cucina Italiana, Boracay Beach Truck, and Cafe Del Sol, Hama continues to impress with its diverse menu. Diners and patrons can enjoy traditional Japanese dishes with innovative modern twists, catering to various cravings and tastes, ensuring a dish and drink for everyone. Signature offerings include the exquisite sushi boat with 32 pieces of their bestsellers, flavorful teppanyaki udon with juicy, well-seasoned beef, and hearty bowls of ramen with rich and decadent broth.

The dishes are reasonably priced, and designed to be shared family-style, allowing guests to sample a variety of flavors in one meal, while extending their travel budgets, too.

Other than the relaxing ambiance, delicious food, and reasonable price points, the team’s warmth and excellence in service are what people recognize and love about Hama, too. Under the leadership of COO,Ernesto Casas, who has been with the group for a decade and counting, the staff and team members are always ready to serve with eagerness and enthusiasm, giving traveling diners a pleasant and memorable experience every time. For those vacationing in Boracay, Hama is a culinary destination not to be missed.
