The best japanese food in Europe!

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.

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.

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 The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes.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.
