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.
Loved the one in Cali but this place is amazing as well!!!
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.
Great place! a true Gem in Honolulu!
Our favorite sushi restaurant ever. We celebrate our anniversary every uh…non Covid year :-p Food is always amazing. Sushi melts in your mouth.
Food and service is excellent but ambiance is lacking.
Delicious! Don’t be intimated by other reviews. The food and service were great.
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?
We love dining at the Chefs Table whenever we are vacationing in Oahu. Always an incredible experience, the fish is incredibly fresh and the service impeccable!! Look forward to the next time!!
I wish I could give 6 stars. Phenomenal sushi experience.
The sushi is amazing and we loved the experience.
It was amazing and the food was delicious
Truly superb, always has been. Worth traveling to Honolulu solely to eat at this restaurant. By far some of the most creative, fresh, high quality sushi available anywhere in the world.
Food is awesome. But seems everyone just reserved for Omakase set.
Excellent service, outstanding food.
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.
My favorite sushi place! Reserve bar seating for Omakase! Should probably reserve a month or more ahead of time from date you want to go.
Every omakase course was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented from start to finish!
Best tasting menu i have ever had, excellent expierence, a must go to
Very detailed, well-rounded omakase that awakens your senses and taste buds. It was the best omakase I have had in years. I cannot wait to come back here on my next visit to Honolulu!
We went for my boyfriend’s early birthday celebration! Everything was perfect:) food was great and all the servers are very friendly!
The best meal we have had in Honolulu. The chef's creations are carefully crafted for texture and flavor. We loved it.
Anniversary. Little pricey but you get what you pay for.
good food, too much to eat, well worth it, recommend to others
Great service and my favorite
Everything that was presented to us was delicious. Great experience and well balanced flavors. All the fish tasted fresh and textures were on point. 10/10 would recommend.
Don’t miss this. Eat and enjoy the food journey that every single amazing creation takes you on. The science, innovation, taste, flavor, and fun cannot and should not be missed.
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.
Amazing Omakase. Must try if you are a serious sushi lover. One of the highlights was the local Pink Snapper with a Maui Onion garnish.
Everything was fantastic and service was great!
Amazing! We will be back!
Next level sushi. No menu, they just provide around a dozen courses of sushi, sashimi, and a few hot courses. Everything was a work of art.
I absolutely love this place!! Keep them coming!! The flavors and the course.. outstanding! Compliments to the chef!! One of my favorite places to go to!! I am always excited what is coming to the table!!
