Best sushi I've ever had

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.

Consistently good, the sushi at Sasabune is fresh, innovative and delicious. While omakase at Sasabune has changed slightly over the years, the food is excellent and Sasabune remains one of the best.

After making my reservation at the Sushi Bar, I get a call back saying that they only serve Omakase (Chef serves whatever's good without you ordering). I prefer Okonomi (which is standard even at the best Sushi restaurants in Japan) where you order what you want at your own pace. I grew up in Japan having eaten at some of... More

if you go to sasabune in brentwood, expect fairly high-end sushi but a pretty dull and uninspired atmosphere which dampens the whole experience. Even by relatively laid back LA standards, it is pretty run down. A family occupied a large central table, the best dressed of whom wore a basketball jersey with cutoffs and unlaced hightops. Most others were dressed... More

We were fans of the old location and keen to try the newer, hipper (and smaller) location in Brentwood. We were not disappointed. The decor is more attractive but everybody comes here for...the fish! The reason to go to Sasabune is simple...the fish tastes so good that you don't need fancy rolls or sauces. It's a must do for any... More

I went back to Sasabune after an absence of 12 years. Since then they have moved to fancier digs but the fish is still awesome. This time I had Omikase and let the chef do the thinking. Great call!

I used to love this place when it was on Sawtelle. Since their move to Wilshire, I have had mixed experience. They definitely have quality sushi though. I believe I got the chief's special all five of my visits. First three on Sawtelle and last two at Wilshire. I stopped going there after a bad experience my last visit 2... More

I was introduced to this place by dear friends from Santa Monica, we had 4 omikasa that went amazing. Many portions cam seasoned, and they all seam to be the freshest and best sushi. The sake was very good as well. We loved it!!!
