This was my first time at a sushi bar. It was so cool. You could sit a little tables if you want to get a cool experience . They have regular tables too. The food was excellent. I highly recommend this place! Will definitely go back.

Banzai Pipeline is an excellent sushi bar, located in the town of Haleiwa and not too far from the North Shore beaches, tucked away in a shopping center in the south of town. The sushi and poke here is excellent, great flavors and fresh fish. The poke sampler comes recommended as a starter- a mix of standard shoyu ahi poke,... More

Banzai has a large menu with easy enough descriptions and their staff was great. The rolls we ordered were amazing and we would def go back for more! Note that we went on a weekday before the dinner rush so we didn't wait long for anything. I've heard they can get really busy.

We love coming here every time we stay in the north shore! Delish looks shashimi and super fresh ahi rolls. It's very reasonably priced, super healthy and a huge menu to pick from.

We wanted to eat some Japanese food and were attracted by reviews. The service was great, we sat on the floor tables which was kinda cool. We got the poke which was ridiculously small. Still hungry so we got a sushi roll. It was fresh and ok but it lacked taste. We got something else that I don t remember.... More

Love the coconut shrimp salad with the wonderful dressing . The sushi was really great also! One can spend alot of money here on sushi. But it is one of the better places in Oahu. Go to the coffee shop after and buy a pound of North Shore blend to take home! It is so good. I also bought an... More

This restaurant was recommended by the concierge of our resort. We loved it so much we went three times. The sushi was divine, and the coconut shrimp was so good I had to have it again. My husband also repeated his moon fish. The servers were friendly and attentive and made you feel welcome. I wish this restaurant was closer... More

We came here with our family to have dinner and had to ask for items over and over again. It felt as if the servers felt they were doing us a favor by being there. The sad thing is we would have ordered more food and drinks if they just came around. The food was awesome and the octopus sashimi... More

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.
