Sasabune is known as one of the earliest and the best "Omakase" Edo style sushi restaurant in Los Angeles for over 29years.

It’s a great option for excellent sushi in Hollywood - ambiance is perfect for a business lunch and also nice on a weekend. The premium Kaisen don and soft shell crab bao are standouts.

About the restaurant
We adhere to the craftsmanship of traditional Japanese cuisine. Chef Kenkichi Yamamoto handpicks the freshest ingredients of the season, using them to inspire the creation of all his dishes. Our kaiseki prix fixe menu has traditional Japanese flavors mixed with french elements featuring shun (seasonal) ingredients. The 9 courses range from the chef's interpretation of sashimi to unique steamed, boiled and grilled dishes. We have seasonal fish and fish offerings traditionally found in Japanese cuisine as well as other dishes to order a la carte. The menu is set for you to experience a dinning experience like no other. Feast with your eyes and stomach! Enjoy!

Waitresses spoke Japanese and were very kind. Poured me and my friend glasses of sake when glasses were empty. Always checked on us to see if we wanted to order more.
