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 was great. The ambiance was lacking for the price-point. Asked the server to turn the music volume up but never happen.

Used to absolutely love this restaurant. My dad hadn’t been out to eat in over a year and was CRAVING sushi, so I picked the only and one. Sadly, the food was a major disappointment. The service was excellent!

We used to live in Tokyo and the quality of the sushi here is outstanding!! And the appetizer portions are huge! Specialty cocktails were unique and very good. Very quiet “white table cloth” ambiance — spread out & quiet perfect during COVID.
Only knock was that service was a bit slow .
Would definitely come back !!!

The food and service were both amazing! It was probably not the best place for a toddler. He was the only child in the restaurant’s and unfortunately acted like a toddler.

We took our family to Sushi Sasa the night of the BIG snow storm. We were celebrating our granddaughters 21st birthday and because she requested sushi.... Sushi Sasa was our automatic chose. You can't go wrong here. We loved the ambience and the music (if there was any?) was nice and low so our party of 6 could carry a good conversation.

The sushi is always fresh and the service was very professional.

The restaurant was pristine and beautiful. We had an unfiltered sake flight, filtered sake flight, and 4 special rolls, and they brought out green tea ice cream for my birthday. Everything was so fresh and delicious. This is a MUST try.

Has this restaurant changed hands? We have been regulars for years and this was, by far, the worst we've experienced.
Seemed a whole new (undertrained) staff, much less-quality ingredients and overall so disappointing I doubt we'll be back.

We had excellent service at Sushi Sasa. Our server always checked to see if we needed anything, and the other staff kept our waters full the entire dining experience. We tried many rolls, but our favorite was the pink lady with scallop and lemon! The pork buns were also delicious!

We sat it the Shoji room, so it was a little bit quieter (although we were a bit noisy?) ;D

Our waitress was Madeline, she did a great job with our party. She was very knowledgeable, friendly, professional and very sweet. Her whole wait staff were timely and attentive.

We ordered a variety of items from the menu, salads, pork buns, A5 Wagyu beef, hamachi and toro sashimi plates...soba noodles, miso marinated black cod,sushi nigiri and rolls. Loved the green tea tiramisu, and had green tea Mochi ice cream.

I am a foodie, with many meals under my belt, eating in different countries around the world including a lot in Japan. The food quality, variety and preparation by owner Wayne and his staff is outstanding.

Looking forward to returning for another top notch sushi/Japanese meal.

👍👍👍

Everything was amazingly delicious. The sushi was top notch, we had the spicy garlic edamame (easily the best edamama I've ever had), shishito peppers (3 of my 10 were spicy!), and my husband and I both agree the star of the show was the fried rice. I don't know what they do differently, but after doing vigorous research throughout the country, Sushi Sasa officially has the best fried rice in the United States. Go on, try it, tell me I'm wrong....
