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.

    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.

    For the amount of food received, I thought it a little overpriced. We spent, collectively, over $140--for 3 people, and we walked away hungry. It was good, though. Definitely a special occasion restaurant.

    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.

    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.

We didn't care for the chocolate mousse but the the lemon cheesecake was delicious. Service was on point. The evening was very enjoyable.

    Everything was delicious! A bit pricey, but hey, it's sushi. I wouldn't want to go to a cheap sushi restaurant for fear they have skimped on the quality or freshness of the fish. Dishes are creative but still respects the tradition of sushi by not going too avant garde or weird. The presentation is beautiful. I am pretty picky about sushi and there aren't many places in Denver I would return to after one visit. This is one restaurant I will absolutely revisit again and again!

    We were staying in Denver for a couple of nights, and I wanted good sushi. I saw Westword's list of top 10 sushi places. Sushi Den was #2--I've already been there a few times. Most of the other spots seemed to be in strip malls--probably very good, but I wanted more than a strip mall location. This place was rated #1. And, IMHO, it deserves the ranking. Great food, interesting choices. It was a great sushi night out.

    I had looked forward to dining at Sushi Sasa. The experience was marred by mediocre/bad service. I have always been forgiving of wait staff. But this evening it was almost funny how much was gotten wrong. We ordered a bottle of Saki only to have our waiter return to let us know it was unavailable. We ordered a second bottle. Again he returned to let us know that that was also unavailable. When our third choice was delivered it was not cold and he didn't pour it. The first appetizer was delivered (a delicious sushi dish) but it arrived without the rice crackers which took a long time to get. And so it went. None of the subsequent courses came with an associated narrative. I felt the waitstaff did not know the menu.

    It's not your typical sushi place, no cats with arms swinging, no photos of sushi, and definitely no boats. I'd say this place keeps pace with Sushi Den as one of the best in Denver. Skip Hapa and it's bro crowd, and bring a date to this place. I wouldn't say t-shirt and shorts, this place has white table cloths and a very clean and spartan atmosphere, which I think makes it feel a little calm if not bland. But the food takes over from there. Highly recommend letting the staff guide you on the best choices. It is expensive but worth it. $100 for two, but being used to paying ridiculous prices for average food and sushi in Breck, I'm okay with that. Will be back.
