Sushi

Hanale by Islander Sake would like customers to enjoy “Islander Sake” we brew, pairing “Islander Sake” with "Ate" that is called in Japanese, great combinations of “Islander Sake” with dishes, and sake vessels.

These are the concepts of Islander Sake Brewery. We serve “Ate” which is great combination dishes with “Islander Sake.”

However, we are not currently selling our sake at Hanale by Islander Sake due to the transition of our liquor license. We apologize for the inconvenience. We would appreciate it if you could purchase and bring our sake in advance.

2 ways to Buy Our Sake
①. Online by Kakaako wine(Direct delivery to Hanale by Islander Sake)
②. Purchased at The Sake Shop, the nearest store from Hanale by Islander Sake (all types are available) or other retail stores

Please visit to our website and sign up the news letter: http://eepurl.com/hTH1Pf

Let's bring your Islander Sake Bottles and enjoy with "Ate" and Onolicious dishes!

    Our party of four had an amazing dinner at Hanale. We all have have had excellent sushi in Japan on many occasions but rarely find that quality in the USA. The fish was not only super fresh but of the highest quality. The service and ambiance were also excellent. We ordered sake two days before dining there and it was delivered as promised. The sake was a bit sweet and we’d have liked a drier type and will read the descriptions better next time. Overall, this was the best sushi dining experience I have had in the USA and highly recommend Hanale.

    The decor was clean, modern and tasteful. The staff were friendly and attentive. The sushi was fresh and delicious. You can get the sake at a nearby shop since they do not have their liquor license yet. (It takes longer to get a brewery license) The sake we tried was lovely. It was light, fruity, and smooth. I can’t wait until their liquor license is approved- but we will be back before then for sure!

    Incredibly yummy as usual . Love Taka , Ikko, and chef . The only draw back was waiting 45 min between the last course and the dessert course and then waiting and having to ask for the bill . I thought that maybe I was being taught a lesson on patience . Ha ! Ha! Just kidding. My mom is older and three plus hours was a bit too long . Much aloha and please read this with a grain of salt as you guys are currently my favorite place to dine!! Thank you for being there and for being so friendly and serving delicious foods!!!

    One of the best meals I've ever had. Really beautiful sushi, with special hints and flavors I haven't tasted before. The non-sushi parts of the meal were also standout. I love the team here, so funny and lovely, love the ambience, really great experience. And of course I love their sake!

    AH-MAZING experience. My husband and I have been wanting to have an omakase experience for a while now and when I saw that Hanale had just opened their doors, I had to get a seat at their table. We loved the clean taste of everything and even though they are small plates, there are 18 small plates! You will not go home hungry! Parking was easy at the 888 Nuuanu Ave (outdoor) paid parking lot, in front of Local Joe's and Black Shamrock Tavern. After 5pm the rates are discounted. We spend 2.5 hours parked and paid $9. If you have any doubts about omakase, you shouldn't especially if you plan to visit Hanale.

    Had a good time at Sake Brewery...though the owner/ lead server mis identified the order our sake flight was presented in and thus the sake we bought to take home was the wrong one. ;-( Plus, as any local knows...it was a very challenging walk to reach their location safely due to the Queen Street flooding, hidden potholes and lack of sidewalks (shame on the City & local property owners) etc.

    This is a fantastic sake bar with sampling of sake made on-site. Food was not available during our tasting but they do offer food pairings in the evening by reservation. We sampled all of their sake and they were all great. Highly recommend this place for sake lovers and first time tasters like my wife.
