We sat at the bar and ordered an omakase, which they adapt to your preferences. The chef explains every dish and tells you how to have it. It was amazing!!! and we also had a plus of having diner close to a celebrity, Chloe Moretz. My teen daughters wouldn't pay attention to her, they where so amazed by the food!... More

We have been to many sushi restaurants in California. After living 4 years in Japan we have developed an appreciation for sushi. Sasabune is by far the best fresh,authentic sushi restaurant we have been to. We were four, including our 4 year old granddaughter who had the steamed fish with ginger. My husband had the incredible omakase (the chef's choice)... More

Ryokans in Japan in the 1980's served us the best food my partner and I had ever eaten. Since then the west coast of North America has offered the best quality Japanese food we have found outside of Asia. San Fransisco, LA, and Vancouver being places with excellent sushi. However, the sushi at Sushi Sasabune, on the edge of Santa... More

If you like super fresh sushi that is Japanese style and enjoy all kinds of fish, this is a fantastic place. The Chef's choice dinner is the one to go for. They have the best quality of everything they serve - from octopus to uni and marinate their own ikura. It is very pricy and they don't do fusion stuff.... More

Absolutely delicious fresh & simple sushi perfection. This small pace is in a mid-level strip shopping center - do not mistake it for the cheap sushi place 2 doors down. Let the chef do the work - omakase lunch all the way. The uni was decilous and all the fish melted in my mouth.

I've been going to Sasabune since they were located in a tiny house on Sawtelle over 15 years ago and I've followed them from location to location. Raised in Hawaii, I've grown up with good fish and sushi all my life. I've also lived in Japan and enjoyed it there so I'm kind of a traditionalist when it comes to... More

This is hands down my favorite sushi place. Because it's a bit pricey, this is our special occasions place. I always go for the chef's special. The rice is warm, sake is divine (the daiginjo variety), and the fish just melts in your mouth. They make their own wasabi and the salmon roe are so light and refreshing - not... More

Nori is the best sushi chef in the world in my opinion . I have been to the best sushi houses in every city I travel to and Sasabune is as good if not better than the best around.

I went there for the first time last week. My colleague strongly recommended the place. I'm definitely going back. Great service + Parking is tough there. But when I got there, staff politely directed me to parking spot. She also came out to see if everything was ok. + Through out dinner, waiter explained each dish and was very professional.... More
