While some reviewers have questioned the communication and overall experience of this restaurant, our own experience was nothing short of outstanding. The nature of the advice from waiters was extremely helpful, the sake recommendations great and the range and quality of the chef's sushi recommendations absolutely brilliant. If you like sushi done well, don't miss it.

The meal we had at Sushi Sasabune was one of the highlights of our 10 day honeymoon. We ate out a lot as my husband is a Chef so food was a major part of our experience. We researched restaurants as much as hotels! We made a reservation and had to wait a short 5 mins before being shown to our table. The service and the cuisine was all top notch. We felt like celebrities or royalty. They thought of everything. Even down to offering me a basket to hold my purse and bags conveniently under our table. As others have said, do yourself a favor and get the Chef's special. The 13 courses do not disappoint! It was a culinary journey that we still talk about. Returning to this restaurant will be top on our list next time we are on the islands. Well worth every penny we spent.

My husband and I just had the best sushi and possibly the best meal we ever had. The service was EXCELLENT. Do trust them and opt for the 13 course Chef's specials of the day...so worth it. About $125 per person...so worth the price for the best sushi you will ever eat!

Had high expectations and they were fullfilled. And more. Extremely tasty and delicious sushi. Your taste buds are gonna be blown away. Friendly service with good advice on how to season each piece or when to eat "as is". Off course you pay for this kind of sushi. But it is worth it if you are a sushi lover. But why so much air con? We were both freezing when we left, we were underneath the ventilation.

Sasabune is getting a poor review from me on my third visit because of the very bad service and customer relations they displayed. I've eaten here twice before, and recommended them to friends based on the food, but unfortunately their reputation for poor service caught up with them last week. Had an 8PM reservation for the sushi bar, arrived at 7:57 and was told to wait. At 8:15 a table of 4 at the bar that arrived after us were seated first, no communication from staff about our spots. At 8:30 (still no communication) 2 spots opened up at the sushi bar and we were told to wait 5 minutes for them to clear the space. When the space was clear a lone person strolled in and sat down without checking in at the front and they refused to move him to seat us! We were told to wait another 30 minutes at which point we walked out. There are better sushi places in Honolulu where you don't need to put up with this behaviour.
