This is my fifth visit to Sasa. As far as I’m concerned this is one of the best authentic Sushi restaurants in the Bay Area. Pricy, but given the quality of the food and the muted elegance of the restaurant, well worth it.

The food here is always amazing and that is why we keep coming back, almost weekly. We always sit at the bar and order a few rolls and some wine. However, next time we won’t be sitting at the bar. The bartender had a very foul mouth (f-bombs) and was so loud it was very distracting to our conversation. We will be back for the awesome sushi, but next time we will reserve a table in the dining room.

Sat at the bar and had a great experience ! Service is usually better at the bar, we find ! The sushi is so good here, though sometimes the wait from the kitchen is annoying. Presentation is always artful !

Although our waiter was gracious and the food was delicious, there was some back ground noise from the main Sushi area that was uncomfortable.... a bit of "ghetto" talk that made this experience not that great!!!!! Perhaps the folks working behind the "sushi" bar area can keep that "ghetto" talk to themselves in the future!!!
