To start with, nothing better than having real japanese people making the food and serving... its an amazing experience... the quality and price is also superb!!! it's a must for japanese food lovers... usually you have to book if you want a table... but there is also place in the sushi bar... the place is super cute....

I don't know what people have in mind opening restaurant in the middle of area with a biggest birthrate in Europe and being most unfriendly to the children staff in the world. We were group of four and had a very quiet child with us in a very good mood, who was doing nothing more than playing with chopsticks, drinking... More

Their menu is varied, delicate, and reaching miles further than what usually is served in Japanese Restaurants.They make exquisite sushi, yes , but you can enjoy as well a full - weekly changing - list of what they...

We have visited sasaya regularly and were pleased with the food and service. The problem always has been that the people are stuffed in like in a can of sardines. Either coats are hanging over you or you might as well sit on the toilet. As well the isolation of the windows is appalling and therefore in winter the place... More

very minimal interior design,quality of the food is ok,it's not an isakaya place,but more a proper restaurant. price are fair compared with portion size. sushi is eatable,warm food can be very tasty. not worth the fuss around this place.

Tried this place based on so many great reviews. Thankfully we got one of the last tables, so didn't have to wait outside in the cold. Extensive menu, so plenty to choose from. Ordered three sushi rolls & one sashimi. While the sashimi was tasty, the pieces were *very* small. With one beer & one ginger tea, the bill came... More

The best sushi you will find in Berlin!!! Shall it be the list of all traditional sushis or the starters... It all reminds me of my Tokyo trip. The quality of the fish is undeniable and the rice is well prepared. I wasn't in the mood for dessert but I gave it a shot, this macha cake was an interesting... More

I was very dissapointed in Sasaya, especially after reading rave reviews on several food blogs. The biggest thing was that the sushi was WARM and the tuna was brown (not red/pink). Maybe I'm spoiled living in the NY metro area, but it just wasn't very good, and it was also very hot inside.

it is one of the worst place been over the last 10 years.. food was very poor just rice with no sign of fish at all,, too goo reviews completely misled us..it was atotal waste of time and money...if this is the sjapanese standard in berlin still a long way to get an acceptable level. very disappointing.
