If you're looking for a traditional Japanese style sushi this is not the place. No food menu, just drink menu. You eat what the chef makes. With that being said, this is one of the best "sushi" places we have ever ate at. They turn sushi not just into art but also cuisine. They fuse flavors together that you would never think of putting on a fish or sushi. They use local ingredients and local fish, which is amazing. They turn traditional sushi into a classy gourmet tasting that will leave you wanting more.
Overall just felt like a typical sushi experience not really omakase. No interaction with the chef and the “traditional” vs “Japanese” omakase felt very similar just different order
Outstanding food as always. We love it here!
We had an amazing experience. The food was fantastic. The service was excellent and the recommendations were on point. Im already looking forward to bringing friends so that they can share our experience. We're definitely coming back.
The omakase was amazing with all staff assisting everyone there! Very kind and easy. They asked that if my beer was low that they can refill my glass and they will of you allow them to. For the price and type of dinner occasion, it was great!
For the Omakase, they put has sauce on every piece of fish. If I am going to pay that much for top quality fish, i want to taste the fish, not onions or salmon pate. We also think the oysters were off as they smelled funny and we were sick afterwards.
Great service, excellent sushi preparation and quality.
Terrific food. Very authentic japanese sushi
Would recommend the service and omakaze experience if never been. Very attentive waiters and staff. A few spectacular courses but for the price I would expect an all spectacular dinner course. Maybe because we are very familiar with this type of dining food and style that we are more critical of the review. Have had better dishes. Not amazed. Had such big expectations.
My first Omakase experience and it was awesome, will definitely be back soon.
This was by far the best meal we had on our trip. I visited with my husband who eats sushi but is not a connoisseur and my daughter who definitely considers herself one. We had the omikasse . This was truly a dining experience. Each piece was amazing. My husband who we told how dinner would be survived was initially skeptical. He left dinner amazed at how good it was and how much he enjoyed it. We truly were spoiled.
Then only thing I would tell you that we were not told was you can limit how much you want. I could have stopped at 9- 10 rounds and they went 14. This was quite a lot of sushi and a hefty bill. But that said it was truly a dining experience.
The Omakase was good but certainly not the best ever. I’ve paid half the price and gotten more food at a higher quality in San Diego.
Tried this based on good reviews but my experience here was was below average. Decent service but very average food and not really omakase in the traditional sense. One visit here is enough for me.
For sushi lovers...innovative and fresh..we had omakase..highly recommend
Excellent service, food, presentation!!! We love this place!!!
First time here, and we had a great foodie experience!!! If your willing to try anything they give you this is the place to be. All the flavors worked very well together.
Small cozy su
Food was outstanding and the service was also good.
I ate here previously in 2005. Yes I came back 13 years later bc I loved it that much. If you love sushi, order the omakase and treat yourself to a great meal that you will never forget.
Omakase is unbelievable! Staff was very attentive and each bite was memorable.
Good! Foods are just amazi g
We love this sushi experience ! Omakase style is the way to go... just let the sushi chef do his thing. The fish is so fresh and the interesting tidbits of sauces/ garnish are very unique. It is pricey, but like no other. Can’t wait to return.
The food was excellent, as was the service. Was surprised to find that there was basically no ala carte menu. We were told we had to order either American or Japanese omakase.
Amazing as usual! Thank you for a great evening!
Excellent and fresh seafood as usual. This is my favorite sushi restaurant.
Fantastic sushi. Would have liked more time between pieces and less hovering to clear plates after each piece.
For sushi lovers this is a awesome food experience! You must be open to trying anything. No California rolls here. The fish is very fresh...melts in your mouth. The preparation is unique and the flavors outstanding. Highly recommend
Great omakase experience. Good variety of sushi flavor profiles presented.
Very good food. No menu though, so omakase only. You have a choice of 2 different omakase courses. A shellfish heavy one or a sashimi one. We went with the sashimi. Delicious but I feel most of the fish would have been better without the sauce. The quality of the fish is so good, but some of them are just overpowered by the sauce they put on. I would suggest on the side for every dish if possible. But delicious, and a nice quiet place where you can actually have a conversation. Staff is very attentive and my water glass was never left empty for long. Which is always a big thing for me as I drink a lot of water.
The outside might not look so great but once you walk in you are transported to a Japanese garden. Sit at the sushi bar and let the plates roll in. The wait staff is very knowledgeable about the Sake served and the plates prepared by the chef. The chef looks intimidating but once you see his smile you know he is happy watching patrons enjoy his creations. Not to be missed when you are in Hawaii.
Amazing food!!! Chef tasting was a great option. Each piece had a unique flavor. Looked forward to each new plate. Little worried about the “Trust Me”, but completely worth the “trust Me”. Will visit every time in town.
Sitting by sushi bar offers the best tasting menu at chef's discretion. Stop the excellent presentation anytime, when you feels it's enough.
This by far and away the best quality sushi anywhere in Hawaii. It’s omakase only and don’t even think you’re gonna get a California roll.
This is our 2nd time eating here in while on vacation and were very disappointed. The first time was absolutely amazing but the most recent time was very underwhelming. The cost is high which is to be expected for high quality fish but it was not warranted this time around. We chose the omakase and maybe the sushi chef was new from our first experience but insisted on placing a garnish on every piece of sushi that we received which ruined what would otherwise seem to be very fresh selection of fish. Our preference is to enjoy the natural flavor of the fish simply with wasabi. If you like a garnish or sauce on your sushi maybe you would have a better experience than we did. We will not be back.
Extremely disappointed, fake sushi!!! Had to stop the Omakase midpoint, so bad. Sushi rice was cheap medium grain, not short grain ...barely any vinegar flavor, dry and not worthy of sushi. Sasabune tries to hide this deficiency by serving it warm. Not even close to what's served at the original WLA joint. Totally overrated and truly not up to the hype, doesn't compare to best omakase sushi in Cali, each sushi fish had to be pasted or dunked with some kind of sauce. I guess they think locals and tourists are idiots. Atmosphere, interior a nightmare. TRUST ME, don't waste your time and money.
Cannot emphasize enough how good the omakase at this place is. Inventive, delicious and seemingly never ending with incredibly fresh ingredients and nigh-perfect execution. It does not disappoint on any level save for the decor. It's a little downtrodden looking, but the looks are absolutely deceptive.
Absolutely the best sushi I've ever had. Great sake list, first-rate service, and food to die for!
Eating at the sushi bar is a fun, one-of-a-kind experience! Always make a point of eating here when I’m in Honolulu and my expectations are always rewarded!
The best Sushi in Hawaii, no doubt trust them.
Insanely good sushi. Quite the experience!
