A word from Sushi Sasa
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.

    Friend recommended I go here for date night...we sat at the sushi bar with zeus and met a couple who dined there regularly and helped us out. Everything was fantastic...food, sushi chef, and atmosphere. Definitely my new favorite sushi spot in denver.

  • Over-price sushi
    Jack
    Dined on 11/21/2014
    I'm still looking to find a replacement for the best sushi place, Sushi Den. This is NOT it. It was way over-priced and the service was poor. Our waitress left for the night without even saying good-bye. Our tab wasn't even closed and we saw her making an exit. We ordered appetizers, which came, but waited another 30 minutes before the sushi came out. We were actually getting hungry again while we waited for the sushi. Nearly all of the sushi rolls were made with a hint wasabi - which I didn't appreciate. Only the fatty tuna and the sea urchin tasted delicious.

  • Top 5 Sushi in Denver
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/4/2014
    Great sushi, classy atmosphere, and reasonable prices (in the sushi frame of reference). We had the diablo roll, lobster tempura roll, and YJC roll. All were delicious and well-prepared. The staff was professional, but attentive, even offering sake recommendations. Denver is not a fresh fish mecca, but this place does alright. Recommended.

    The host who seated had a bad attitude from the start. My wife and I made reservations online for two. I didn't realize that your only option is to sit on a long bench seat type seating for two with another couple within 2 feet. In the future she should have given us some options to make that choice as she stated that you all have 3 separate rooms. For a couple looking to talk privately or have a quiet dinner, this is not the place.

    We enjoyed our dinner at Sushi Sasi very much. I loved the ambience in the far room - very serene and elegant. We did not sample a lot of sushi - had one roll which was great. Really loved the grilled artichoke app and all three of us had noodle soups which were delicious Service was very attentive and friendly

    Sushi Sasa is a step above most sushi restaurants, offering both tasteful food and decor. Cool and minimalist but not at all cold, the atmosphere feels special but not pretentious. I've always had good service here and the nightly specials usually are inventive and delicious. Of course the fish is fresh.

    Seating
    Dined on 9/24/2014
    I have visited Sushi Sasa more than 20 times and this time was by far the worst! They sat my wife and I in the back room and next to a converted table/busser-server station. Who puts a busser-server station within such close proximity to patrons at this price point? What a joke, lost a customer forever. I thought the purpose of Open Table was to assure a good seat...

    The sushi and appetizers were absolutely phenomenal. We ordered the grilled artichoke and shiromiso to start and then a mix of sashimi and maki. The fish was fresh and flavorful and the artichoke was out of this world. If I lived in Denver, I would eat here at least once a week.

  • Salmon tartare roll
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 8/30/2014
    Get it! We started with the grilled artichoke and moved on to A LOT of sushi. It was all delicious but the salmon tartare roll really stood out. Our only complaint was that our nigiri came about 20 minutes after our sushi rolls (even after 2 people said "they were on their way"). Otherwise, an awesome dinner.

    My husband and I finally decided to try Sushi Sasa out after we could not get a reservation at another local hot sushi spot. We were amazed at the quality of the food, the service and the location itself - valet parking is provided, so that part was great as well. We are sushi snobs.......and this met every expectation and surpassed our hopes. We will be back all the time!

    My GF and I have been to Sushi Sasa a few times before and have never been disappointed. This time we met a friend for dinner and was a little surprised at how the menu has changed. Some good changes, some not so great. First was the change to the prepared food menu - some really good choices have been added and they were very flavorful. Downside was the portions were ridiculously small for the price. Most notably was the Filet Mignon Bento box. For $24 you only get about 2 ounces of beef (in tiny cubes) and not a whole lot else except a standard sized bowl of rice and small pieces of red pepper, mushroom and onion - ON A SKEWER. IMO that is not a Bento box. Second - the sushi menu has changed considerably with fewer choices but still good.

    The place was packed but luckily we had a reservation and they were able to seat us right away. The service was very slow, my dish came out after my dining party was nearly 1/2 way finished with their meals. We had four rolls at the table and each one was rolled such that the pieces fell apart when we tried to pick them up. The sushi combos seemed to the best choice with lots of options and excellent presentation (not to mention they came out about 10minutes before any sushi rolls). There was about a 30 minute wait from order to delivery of the first dish which is unusual in a sushi restaurant, in my experience. I've had better sushi and better service so just, meh.
