Best Sushi Ever! Go with Chef's special and you can tell likes/dislikes, etc. The fish just melts in your mouth. Deliciously prepared and presented!

If one could rate higher than 5 this place deserves it! Wow! "Trust me" is the motto and they don't disappoint. Each plate of 12 courses of carefully sourced and thought out by the chef. Bring your Japanese for some added respect or learning the way! Hardcore sushi joints are tough to find in the states and this place is... More

Had a customer make reservations for 5 of us here and he told me they bring out whatever they feel like. It's a pre fix menu consisting of multiple courses of different types of sushi. All the items were very unique and so tasty, along with the real wasabi they give you and the ginger was to die for. No... More

A+ all the way! Our omakase Saturday night dinner was absolutely the best experience! Everything was excellent --- especially the sashimi with fish from New Zealand. We sat at the sushi counter, got superb service! Brought a Dom which they put in a bucket of ice --- worth it for $25 corkage fee. $300 for a dinner for two but... More

We enjoyed dinner at the sushi bar and were treated to an amazing evening. We were not sure we had gotten to the right location and are thrilled we stayed the course. Looking to enjoy dinner here again in December 2016.

I was treated to eat here for Father's Day. Not only was my food good, it was paid for. The best kind of sushi. This place has a legendary reputation and we never ventured here as we had heard stories of the sushi Nazi. We sat at a table for four so there was less pressure than at the bar.... More

A detailed explanation of each course is provided and you can eat as much as you want that is provided by the chef choice and you decide when you are finished. This experience - you will always remember and will definitely want to... More

I was on Oahu with family and the concierge recommend Sushi Sasabune. As our vacation was winding down, I realized that I had prioritized having great sushi in HI more than my family, so I ventured out on my own. I was a little underwhelmed from the looks on the outside, but wasn't deterred. I opted for a fixed menu... More

I travel extensively for business and am always on the lookout for the next great place. I had very high expectations for this place for a number of reasons: 1) high TA reviews; 2) strong local and national reviews in the press; and 3) this was the fourth time I tried to go (could not get a table the other...
