This place is incredibly friendly as well as providing some of the best sushi around. Many different custom rolls as well as the basics. They also have a very good selection of sake. Can be a bit pricey as the dishes mount up.

BEST sushi rolls in Cleveland. Must try the SASA FIRE ROLL !!! Delicious. Shrimp dumplings top notch. Highly recommended.Not too pricey and seems like not too many people know how great the food is.

We had the avacado salad - a fusion that worked. Chicken with 5 mushrooms was perfectly cooked and tasted wonderful. The calamari was amazingly light for something fried. The only negative was the noise level - I hate loud places and I had trouble hearing the waiter.

My wife and I went here for her birthday. We both really enjoyed it. Good food, good drinks and pretty decent service.

I have been to Sasa on several occasions but have never written a review. I had not been here in while because the Manager was rude to the person paying for the meal; even after he had spent almost $1,000 on the party he was with. I have a habit of ordering the same thing every time I go back;... More

My husband and I have been coming to SASA for many years. We love to sit at the bar and have tried almost everything on the menu. Their hot food is just as good as their sushi! The SASA fries are amazing, and we also love the shrimp shumai. "The Rock" is a great medium plate too. The sushi is... More

We've been here twice and really like their sushi. However, we ordered a bottle of chardonnay the other night and sent it back - the second bottle wasn't much better and the prices are about 25% above the norm. Service was slow when we tried to pay the bill - took forever. But the food is good - drink sake... More

They have a large menu of interesting Japanese and Asian dishes. They have 'small dishes', 'medium dishes', and a few 'large dishes' as well as sushi, sashimi, salads, etc. The waiter told us that the medium dishes were like a main course for one person and the large dishes would serve two. My wife and I shared one large and... More

This is one of the best Japanese resturants in the US. It is really a Cleveland treasure. I have been going to this resturant for years, both in its current form and in its previous location. The food is excellent. It reminds me of many upscale resturants I've eaten in in Tokyo or Osaka except for two things--the portion size... More

Went with my husband on a hot evening, but sat outside in the shade anyway and had a lovely evening. Nice drink menu (had two fabulous cocktails) and plate after plate of gorgeous, delicious food. Service was attentive without being intrusive (I think our waitress was Emily, who was great). They way the food came out kind of gave the... More
