KEEP IT REAL, KEEP IT RAW with BANZAI Sushi Bar

Did you know that Banzai Sushi Bar serves some of the healthiest food in all of Hawaii? It’s true! Raw fish is one of the best foods for brain-boosting and heart-strengthening nutrients. Not only is raw fish low in calories, it is also loaded with Omega-3 fatty acids that help your heart. Which helps to explain why the Japanese people age so healthy, and why the raw food movement is spreading across the world.

Banzai Sushi Bar’s very own Chef Hide couples raw fish with fresh, raw locally grown organic produce to create delicious, incredibly healthy sushi. This means that a meal of raw fish at Banzai Sushi Bar can be an important part of a balanced diet. Getting our fresh fish everyday is imperative, and our fish buyer, Mike Kealoha, scouts the Ahi/Tuna fish auction every morning the market is open. After Mike purchases the freshest Hawaiian seafood, Chef Hide and the team at Banzai Sushi Bar craft these fish into the most delicious tropical sushi you have ever tasted!

But it’s not just the fish that makes Banzai Sushi Bar such a healthy dining option. Chef Hide sources the freshest organic produce from local farmers such as Ho Farms, Rainbow Trader, Pupukea Gardens, and Marine AgriFuture. Banzai Sushi Bar prides itself on using some of the best organic greens grown on the North Shore. Using only in-season produce means that our menu is a seasonal one, making each visit to Banzai Sushi Bar a new, raw dining experience.

Surfing is more than a sport in Hawaii

Surfing is more than a sport in Hawaii. Surfing is a religion. This religion has fostered a lifestyle that makes these islands the best place in the world to live. Being located in Haleiwa, the surf capital of Hawaii, Banzai Sushi Bar is committed to supporting the surf community in a variety of endeavors.

Banzai Sushi Bar is proud to have given our support to two North Shore junior surf contests in 2013. First was the North Shore Surf Shop Pro Junior held at Sunset Beach back in January and just recently in March the North Shore Surf Shop Pipe Pro Jr. Not only are both of these contests giving Hawaii’s junior surfers much needed ASP points that will help them to qualify for bigger events in years to come, the contests are giving these young surfers valuable contest experience. Hawaii is home to some of the most talented junior surfers in the world, and it is imperative that the North Shore continues to host more contests to help these local surfers. Banzai Sushi Bar is committed to helping more Hawaiian surfers make it onto the coveted ASP World Championship Tour by supporting these important events!

Not only does Banzai Sushi Bar support the youth, we also give love to the local pros as well. Proof of that commitment is our sponsorship of the Hawaii Masters Surf Team, comprised of surfers all 35 years or older. Hawaii’s team of 8 won the team gold medal in last years International Surfing Association’s Master Championship in Nicaragua, and they look poised to repeat the feat in Ecuador this April. This year’s team, which features Sunny Garcia, Pancho Sullivan, Ross Williams, Michael Ho, Rochelle Ballard and more, will fly the Aloha flag as they compete against teams from Australia, Brazil and 28 other countries.

If you want to catch the last of the winter surf season, be sure to come to Banzai Sushi Bar soon. Even if the waves aren’t up, you can always catch a session at the restaurant as we play surf movies nearly every day! At Banzai Sushi Bar, we keep it real and we keep it raw.
