Sushi Sasa is designed to offer Denver the opportunity to enjoy Traditional and "New Style" Japanese cuisine harmoniously beneath one roof. The seasonal, healthy, beautiful and affordable tasting menu compliments the fully functioning sushi bar bridging the gap between East coast innovation and West coast charm. Bilingual chefs man the sushi bar at the rear of the zen-like space and offer up exotic fish and produce from around the world with the heart of the cuisine remaining Japanese. With a wonderful sake and wine list and a cozy downstairs lounge, Sushi Sasa is a perfect place for a business lunch or a nice dinner with friends.

    Sushi Sasa is my favorite sushi restaurant. It’s great about gluten free options and they’re flexible about tweaking rolls to make them GF. Everything is always fresh. Much better than the competition.

    Enjoyed a lovely and extended meal for two at the sushi bar, on an understandably slow evening before Thanksgiving. We appreciated not being hurried, attentive service, a green tea IPA from Kyoto, and delicious sushi as usual. Definitely will be back, many thanks.

    Pros: polite, welcoming staff. Fish tasted good. Cons: mushy sushi roll rice. Bland basic rolls with no artistic or unique concepts, like lots of fried things and cream cheese (The nigiri & sashimi were better). Overpriced for the quality. Had to ask for soy sauce. Ordered the Sasa trio and nori chips were terrible. Stuck to your teeth and unenjoyable to eat. Sushi rollers weren't wearing hats.

    The food was good and the service was fantastic. Our table was shoved into a corner so that was not ideal. The food is crazy over priced.

    It took 20 minutes for our waitress to greet us and she was relatively rude. Didn’t apologize for the wait, tell us her name, or try to establish a good vibe at all. She walked away and we had to remind her that we were ready to order given that we’d been sitting there a while. The food runner was at least pretty nice, and we didn’t see our waitress again until it was time to leave. She asked how we were doing while there was nothing on the table as it had already been bussed. We got a dessert and a dinner drink and the drink came about 5 minutes after we’d already finished the dessert. The manager comped the dinner drink and apologized, but it was a little late at that point. We hadn’t even said anything to the server about the service, so I suppose she just knew that the service had been sub par. The restaurant was crowded, so we understand, but a simple greeting alerting to us to that at the beginning would have helped. We likely won’t return.

    Based on the reviews I really expected to love this place. Unfortunately it just wasn’t worth the time, money, or calories (even though we boxed up the majority of our sushi because it just wasn’t worth eating). The pork buns are flavorless; the meat is basically just lightly seasoned and put in the bun with a cucumber. Super bland. The specialty old fashion is too sweet. The dynamite seafood trio appetizer is a 3/10. The sushi is truly sub par and just not worth it. Only great thing is free attached parking.

    Wonderful experience, great staff. Can’t recommend their 2 special martinis enough (leychee and elderflower). Good sushi and lovely place for a date, particularly on a cold Denver night. Will come back as a group of 4-6 to sit in one of their beautiful round comfy booths, sip what I think are best cocktails in town and enjoy ourselves.

    I understand that our waitress was new but she new nothing about the menu or even sushi in general. The sushi itself was good but not great. The best thing we had by far was the Pink Lady roll. The roll and the unique sauce that came with it were top notch. I would return just for that roll. Also we ordered fatty tuna, which is my favorite, and the quality did not disappoint - especially at the pricepoint. I will give this spot one more try and probably sit at the sushi bar next time.

    The restaurant was very serene and calm when we started our meal, though fairly busy. By the time we left it was so loud we could barely have a conversation. As always good was very good, and cocktails were great.

    The sushi was small for the elevated prices—$10 for an order of 2 pieces and the list of rolls was among the smallest I’ve ever seen at a sushi restaurant. The ambiance is clean and spare. Lots of white on white. This the fourth time I’ve been to Sushi Sasa over several years and it feels like it’s resting on it’s laurels. Lunch for 2 people (with no drinks of any kind) was $89, not including tip.

    I enjoyed my experience here. The food was really great as well as the service. I would have given five stars across the board if it weren't for the less than desirable table we were seated at. It was an extremely small table for two with a bench on one side and chair on the other side. The bench was much lower than the chair and low for the table. It was weird. I would recommend rethinking this row of tiny tables. I was also annoyed that we were seated here when there were nicer empty 4 tops available. We jugled the entire lunch to make room for all the food and plates. 🤨
