We were visiting friends in Orinda during a holiday in San Francisco. They took us to Walnut Creek and this gem of a restaurant. We weren't sure of what to expect, but as soon as we walked in the door, we knew we were in for a great experience. It's in a very old building that felt like an old... More

Went for an early Saturday dinner (5:30). Reservation was easy. We chose to sit in the outdoor patio area which had shade and a quiet relaxing ambience. The service was very good & orders were delivered pretty quickly. Their sushi rolls were very large and excellent! Their plates (we had both of the salmons) were very tasty, but on the... More

The decor inside and out is worth checking out on its own. The service Jasmine provided was attentive and fun. We had the Omakase 50 for two and it was perfect! The dishes were beautifully presented and tasted amazing. This is on our "must" come back list. We sat on the patio which has been carefully decorated to create a... More

Met friends for dinner at their recommendation. A great recommendation it was. Great small plates and unusual saki. Perfect for sharing, conversing, and enjoying the blessings of good friendship.

Sasa was excellent from entering to exiting. The service was friendly and prompt. They knew everything about the menu and made sure you knew exactly what you were ordering.The flat iron steak was the highlight. It was presented with a lava rock heated up to 500 degrees in order to cook it to you liking. The sushi was very good.

Loved the eggplant dish and the sushi I ordered. Husband had the duck buns and we shared some garlic rice, very tasty. Adult son and son-in-law got an array of sashimi, skewers, and other small plate dishes -- all very, very good. Late Friday night arrival -- place was pretty full but we still got seated promptly. Definitely will be... More

Never been here before and not too much of a Japanese/Sushi expert, but it is a great place to experience lots of different dishes that are fresh and tasty. We sat at the Sushi Bar. It was nice to chat to the Sushi Chef and learn about what he was doing and how he did it. Service was very attentive... More

I'm from Hawaii, so I am pretty spoiled when it comes to raw fish and sushi in general, but Sasa did not disappoint! We went there for dinner and I was immediately impressed with the modern and clean ambiance. I started by telling the server that I have Celiac disease, and he assured me that there were many items that... More
