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.

Did not love this place. Ambiance is pretty boring and service was sub par. Also, I had called ahead for my date's birthday and was told we would receive a nice table and little birthday dessert but did not. I was honestly a little embarrassed I took my date here for his birthday.

Restsurant is a quaint sushi restaurant about 60 seats. It has a small sign on the front that helps keep this amazing sushi a secret. The restaurant was very clean, our server was very friendly and helpful. The sushi and sashimi was fresh and delicious. We also had a dozen raw west coast oysters that were delicious ! We had a great time and will return.

Sushi Sasa is a lovely spot nestled in outer highlands. Creative menu served expertly. Wonderful appetizers and excellent sushi. Ambiance is cozy and clean. This place is comfortable enough for a mid-week treat and fancy enough for a birthday or anniversary celebration!

We were initially seated in the downstairs dining room, but it was extremely loud, so we requested to be moved upstairs, and the friendly staff kindly accommodated our request. Our server, a woman named Jimi, I think, was wonderful, attentive, and friendly. The food was super delicious and fresh. Everything we ate was perfect. We will be back soon!

Outstanding food and drinks. The service, however, wasn't that great. They forgot an entire meal for someone in my party to the point we were all finished with our meals and she hadn't received hers yet.

The food was up to expectations, once it arrived. We had our order in within a few minutes after our arrival but only some edamame arrived within the next few minutes. It was a good 5=30-45 minutes before on order of salad and later some main dishes arrived. At the same time we watched another table arrive, order, get food and pay. The staff was not very helpful or sincerely apologetic. Sushi, rolls and various soups very tasty but the long wait spoiled the experience.

Good food and decent prices. The shishito peppers were amazing as was the dragon roll. Where I’m disappointed was the lack luster service. We waited 10 minutes for our server to greet us, and her pattern of being M.I.A. continued throughout the rest of our dinner — waiting to order drinks, waiting to eat our dinner because we had no plates, waiting to pay the check — with all the waiting we didn’t want to wait to order dessert.

Excellent sushi! Cute setting with a minimalist type decor vibe in a great neighborhood. Convenient parking right next to building. We went for lunch and found the noise level suitable for a business meeting. Food was fresh and would recommend to friends. The ramen didn’t blow me away (still good) but I would definitely go back for more sushi.

Both the food and the staff are always wonderful. This has become our go to place for sushi and special events. The food ranges from very traditional Japanese to very innovative that are more of a natural evolution than some desperate attempt to concoct something new and different .

Sushi Sasa offered a very good experience overall. The service was good but could polish up a couple of basic items; taking the order and delivering the food. It was our first experience and we didn’t experience anything special. I was surprised that a signature roll was not offered. The rolls were attractive and tasty, but didn’t seem to have anything unique or different.

The food was good but nothing that was off the chart. Service was not the best where they didn't know what they brought out and had no idea who ordered what. Even, what the dishes were that they brought out. Plus, they wanted to bring out the dessert menu while we were half way done with our dinner - strange...

We were greeted at door wishing us a happy anniversary. After we were seated our waitress then wished a happy anniversary and served us 2 glasses of Prosecco on the house. The service was great, our server was very helpful in explaining the different rolls and sushi items.
I will definitely recommend Sushi Sasa to our friends.

THANKS SO MUCH FOR SUCH A WONDERFUL EVENING.

Upscale Japanese restaurant with superb service and excellent food. Overshadowed by sushi den and izayaka den but still a nice place to go, quiet enough for good conversation. Recommend- pork bell sliders. Not up to par - chirashi sushi.

Our server was vegan which really helpful since we are also vegan. She helped us with our menu choices. The food was unbelievable and we felt like they had made our meal just for us. It was a birthday celebration and very much enjoyed.

When making our reservation online, I put down that this was for our 20th wedding anniversary. Little did we know that two complimentary glasses of champagne would be waiting for us. Thank you. Chef Wayne and his staff provided the most memorable night for us and we will come back again! The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Excellent service throughout the evening. The staff were attentive and helpful.
