Chinese restaurant replaces Hanami in Oakland.

A new Chinese restaurant has replaced Hanami on Fifth Ave. in Oakland. Signage indicates the unnamed restaurant is in a soft opening phase at 3608 Fifth Ave. (map).

Hanami opened in November 2018 as a rebranded version of Thai Hana, a restaurant that was among the worst in terms of health department violations in the county. During Hanami's initial inspection it received 10 violations; the restaurant closed several weeks ago.
