Omakase Sushi Bento Box $30 available for takeout 11p nigirir, 6p roll. A la carte items: crab stuffed baby squid, mini ikuradon, mini torodon, uni 2p blue crab roll (6p). Please call to place order 808-947-3800.
Sushi Sasbune offers a unique Omakase-style sushi experience. Ranging from 13-15 courses, we specialize in using as much local fish as possible, creating a meal that can be found nowhere else in the world! For those who do not wish to participate in the Omakase course, a la carte ordering is available to tables (sushi bar is omakase only). However, we are a specialty sushi restaurant, meaning we do not serve California rolls etc. All nigiri are served with its own unique sauce and topping, meant to be eaten as is, so we do not offer shoyu at the table. First time diners are encouraged to try the Omakase course, as it best reflects our sushi identity. In the words of head chef owner, Trust me!

Lived in Japan and didn’t have sushi nearly as good as Sushi Sasabune. Every dish was a flavor bomb. Quiet atmosphere, no kids and no phones. Next dish is on your table as soon as you finish your plate.

We had 13 courses - loved the sashimi, toro, salmon, ikura, miso soup! Also had some great dry cold sake and sweet cold pineapple sake which really complimented the food! Awesome experience with excellent, somewhat impersonal service.

One of the best sushi restaurants we've been to. It is an Omakase style restaurant where the chefs will create their own dishes and serve them to you. Each time they serve the dishes to you the chef will explain what each sushi is made of. Every piece of sushi was fantastic. Each had its own unique flavor and just melted in your mouth. The standard setting is 12 courses, but keep in mind most courses had two pieces of sushi so we were pretty full after the 12 courses. But you can opt to add a few more courses if you'd like.

Great experience, delicious food and definitely want to return soon.

Bar experience is a must. Although they provides table but it is boring, you cannot interact with chef and all you do is waiting and waiting. There is very limited food in menu other than omakase.
We don’t enjoy our experience and also not happy with manager. But food is great.

You cannot believe this place. Not only did they serve me the best bites of sushi I’ve ever had in my life, but the best bites of FOOD I’ve ever tasted. Set aside your biases and just try everything they set in front of you. Couple with one of their excellent sake selections and you may experience your first sushig*sm.

Horrible experience. I wonder where all that good reviews came from. Employees don't care about the service at all. We left the restaurant during the omakase. Sushis were falling over from the plate while the water was serving to our table. Also, we felt like we were eating in a buffet because the waiters were serving dishes way too fast. We complained about it. The bald guy who worked there said he was in the restaurant business for so long, but he wouldn't complain about such a little thing like that and tried to educate us with a terrible attitude. So rude and arrogant. Why would you want to spend so much of your money on not too special food and treat you horribly?

The best meal during our Hawaii honeymoon! When the chef asks you to trust him, do it - you'll be treated to the most incredible nigiri, piece after piece showing up one after another at your table. The fish is cut expertly, the variety is a perfect mix of familiar and local delicacies. It's absolutely worth the larger than average price tag (I was honestly expecting the bill to be higher than it was at the end of the night). Get a reservation at least two months before you visit Oahu. Cannot recommend enough!

This was hands down the best and most special meal of our 2 weeks in HI for our honeymoon. (And we ate at some amazing restaurants across the food and Michelin star spectrum) We did the omakaze. I recommend this completely to anyone who likes sushi/Japanese food. The service was impeccable, the ambiance graceful, the food TRULY FANTASTIC. My husband who travels frequently to Japan claimed it one of his best meals as well. Go here, end of story!!

Sushi Sasabune is our go-to place for a special experience whenever my family and I visit Honolulu. It’s special not because of the ambience, but for the food. It’s all about the food: 100% fresh, high quality seafood that melts in your mouth. Forget the soy sauce. Each presentation has been delicately seasoned and prepared. When we talk about which creation we liked best, it inevitably becomes a list, not a specific item. It’s expensive, but not for the quality you get. I will continue to dine at Sushi Sasabune whenever I visit Oahu.

It is my first time eating somewhere where there is not a menu and what you are going to eat is decided by the chef. However, it was a great experience I almost thought that the chef knew exactly what we wanted to eat.
