This was by far the best sushi I’ve had outside of Japan. The dishes were delicious and super creative with ingredients sourced from around the world. The restaurant is nondescript with seating for 10. Drink options are limited, and the restroom leaves a lot to desire. Despite these drawbacks, I would go again, again, and again for the food experience. Even the locals don’t know much about this place - which is both sad and a blessing! It would be a Michelin star restaurant if it was on the mainland.

Absolutely one of the best and most interesting sushi experiences ever. The food was amazing, so fresh with perfect combinations of flavors with every bite. The experience is so unique sitting at a 6 person sushi bar in a high end car showroom was also something we could not have imagined. The chef Hideo was so nice and so pleasant, he is so knowledgeable and skilled at his trade. We were the only 2 people at the bar and had amazing service. I would highly recommend, this is something not to miss if you are in the area

Sushi Sasabune offers a unique Omakase-style sushi experience. We specialize in using as much local fish as possible, creating a meal that can be found nowhere else in the world! Sasabune is a specialty sushi restaurant, meaning we do not serve tempura, noodles, California rolls etc. All nigiri are served with its own unique sauce and topping, meant to be eaten as is. In the words of head chef and owner Seiji Kumagawa, "Trust me!"
Omakase only, limited seating (party of 6 max), please call (808) 947-3800 for reservations.

Amazing food, amazing atmosphere, amazing setting. Just 5 stars all around. One of the best dinner experiences of our lives. The vibe is small and private, you don’t just get to know the chef and his staff but you know the people around you and share good times with all. It’s byob, bring a bottle for your group but don’t forget to bring another bottle for those around you because everyone is happy and excited to share with you as well.
