Very good attempt

Great ambience. All Japanese staff including sushi chef which is always a great sign. The tempura was crisp and hot the way it should be. The sake list was good. Better than most. Making a good attempt. But they could have more diagingyo on the menu and the one they had was out of stock. The fish... read more

We started with the tempura. I was expecting a couple fried shrimps. We got one shrimp, a slice of sweet potato, and a ridiculous little mushroom. It was soggy and not appetizing at all. Then the miso soup. It was OK. nothing special. The tofu was pretty generously cut. We then shared a plate of the chef's sushi. 25 euros,... More

Visited Sasaya a couple of nights ago after reading a review in our hotel magazine. We hadn't made a reservation however we were very lucky to be offered a space at the Sushi bar even though the place was packed. The waiting staff were amazing, very friendly with great knowledge about the food and sake. We had a great view... More

really nice place for really good japanese food! i like the atmosphere of the place - classic music and nice people. in the evening it's hard to get a table without reservation - at lunchtime you can be lucky if you come early!

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

Staying in Prenzlauer Berg

Neighborhood Profile
Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighborhood has undergone a greater change than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays, thousands turn the park next to remnants of the wall into a playground for street artists, musicians, and flea market shoppers. This attracts young urban families who enjoy the balance of big city life and small-town comfort. Meanwhile, trendy, young, upper-class visitors from all over the world are attracted to the local high-end shops, cafés, and sophisticated bars and restaurants. The merits of this transformation are a favorite topic of debate around the city, but it makes for some of the best people-watching Berlin has to offer.
