We read about it on the Routard guide and we couldn't agree more about the review. Very minimal forniture, kind waitresses, comfortable place, great and relaxing music make Sasaya the best place we've ever been: of course the best japanese food we've ever tasted. The price is not that expensive as we expected, considering that we ate worse and paid... More

I have never been treated so badly by restaurant staff. My husband and I have been regulars at Sasaya for years now. We have a toddler now and decided to not let that get in the way of us having a nice Japanese meal. Unfortunately, our son was in a bad mood today and complained and cried quite a bit... More

I've been a regular guest to this place. Yes, the food is delicious, the portions however are - even for Japanese standards - rather stingy. Besides, waiting for 15 minutes for taking an order by pseudo-friendly, reserved waitresses and waiters is not what I call a good service. I hope the service will improve in the future.

We were lucky to get a seat during lunchtime so maybe reserve. The area has lots of kids so in weekend expected some inside too. Sushi is very fresh and good we had a chef selection and was mostly the classics but some nice spicey surprises too. Service is fast and speaks English but make sure to check your bill... More

Excellent and very reasonably priced sushi. Miso soup was one of the best I've ever eaten. Friendly staff, good tea and sake :) Overall, as far as sushi bars outside of Japan go this one is pretty damn good.

We would highly recommend to make a reservation, because even during the noon-opening-time it is very crowded. The food was really great, we had several different things, all were very tasty. All members of the staff we had contact with were extremly friendly. I'm sure we will come back next time we are in Berlin!

Great japanese place in Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin. Sit down by a typical but modern japanese table and be served sushi, sashimi of high quality while watching the intense activity of the japanese chefs.

Sasaya is honestly one of the best Japanese food experiences in Berlin. The lunch offer is really affordable and a cup of hot tea is on the house. It's always a pleasure here to experience the excellent sushi and sashimi. Always make a reservation before going.
