FAVORITE sushi place

This is hands down my favorite sushi place. Because it's a bit pricey, this is our special occasions place. I always go for the chef's special. The rice is warm, sake is divine (the daiginjo variety), and the fish just melts in your mouth. They make their own wasabi and the salmon roe are so... read more

Nori is the best sushi chef in the world in my opinion . I have been to the best sushi houses in every city I travel to and Sasabune is as good if not better than the best around.

I went there for the first time last week. My colleague strongly recommended the place. I'm definitely going back. Great service + Parking is tough there. But when I got there, staff politely directed me to parking spot. She also came out to see if everything was ok. + Through out dinner, waiter explained each dish and was very professional.... More

Sasabune is a world away from the onion and/or jalapeno smothered rolls found throughout Los Angeles, and it is a good thing. This is classic sushi, served Omakase, and everything was very fresh and oh so good! Courses were expertly paired to highlight subtle taste differences between the different fish, and the service was outstanding. Not an inexpensive meal by... More

I have been going to Sasabune for years and am finally reviewing it. Not only do they have the best sushi in LA they also have a lunch special . Sushi Chef Nori takes immense pride in the quality of his sushi and it is obvious with every bite that melts in your mouth. No Spicy Tuna or California rolls... More

This was my first Los Angeles omakase experience and is so far still among my favorites. I miss the old location on Sawtelle, but even on Wilshire, the rice is the right temperature, and that's what counts!

One of the best meals of my life! Mind you, you will spend a lot of money. We spent $200+ for two people. But this is not a california roll, spicy tuna roll kind of place. The sushi here is simple. Rice and fresh fish, a little bit a sauce and it’s magical. This is what I imagine being in... More

Make a reservation at the bar, you will be sercved by the Chef himself offering you the best sushi. Be prepared to eat a lot and delicious sushi.Toro is just superb. Drink the world's No. 1 Sake ( we had it cold and warm) and try the milky undestilled sake.

Sushi lovers will find the omikase is heavenly. In addition, sashimi and sushi are available a la carte ... and a better choice when you have a smaller appetite. Abalone is AWESOME!!!

Very fresh fish and not your normal rolls. Much better if your want a better experience. I suggest if it's your first time go with the chef recommendation so you have a real feel of it. And if you revisit which you will then you will know what to choose.
