Our grands, 8&9, thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Banzai Sushi. They're not typically adventurous eaters and could easily survive on a mono diet of chicken tenders and fries. At Banzai they enjoyed a California roll and green salad and surprisingly tried unagi (eel). Our selections...More

Bonzai Sushi was our first stop upon returning to Oahu. The staff is personable and very friendly, even when you are obviously not a local. The sushi is fresh, delicious and never disappoints.

Voted one of Oahu's best by Honolulu Star Advertiser four consecutive years, BANZAI Sushi Bar is truly one of Haleiwa's best kept secrets. Tucked away in a back corner of the North Shore Marketplace, casual fine dinning, outdoor covered seating with Japanese-style seating on Zabuton pillows or conventional tables, diners relax all while watching surf videos and enjoy live local musicians on the weekend. BANZAI uses local organic produce when ever possible and has their very own Hawaiian fish buyer who presents himself on a daily basis at the worlds largest Tuna fish auction here in Honolulu allowing them to serve the freshest fish almost immediately. With one of Hawaii's best Sake selections, any sushi lover and sake connoisseur will be in pure nirvana. Dont miss BANZAI Sushi Bar on your next visit to Oahu's North Shore in Historic Haleiwa Town.
