To me, true omakase is sitting at the sushi counter and having the chef feed you whatever he thinks is best that day until you are full. There are tables at sasabune and a regular menu, but I say do the omakase style. Some call...More

We happened upon this by accident. Went for lunch and learned that lunch is by reservation only. We didn't know what omakase dining was about. So we made reservations and returned for dinner. What fun! It is expensive - but worth it to celebrate our...More

Sushi Sasabune is a classic omakase experience. It was so unique and personal. It's also one of the few that has been so extensive that I've had to stop before the end! My husband made it all the way through, though. I'd say it's a...More

If you are a lover of seafood, you must reserve a seat at this restaurant to experience their Omakase! You won’t regret it! Sake was wonderful as well!

We were looking specially for a "sushi" meal without all the frills. Although we love Nobu, their omakase is a mix of many type of Japanese foods, both hot and cold, and you pay a 30-40% premium for the atmosphere. Sasabone was located in a...More

Amazing sushi! My family is from NYC and we frequent many of the best sushi restaurants there. And my wife is Japanese and we have eaten at top Tokyo sushi restaurants as well. Believing we are sushi "snobs" we did not expect very much from...More

Highly recommended to this place from friends on the mainland so came with high expectations. Sushi Sasbune isn't your mall sushi train by a million or two miles. Having lived in Tokyo for a year and eaten with good Japanese friends I was looking forward...More
