“Overrated”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

Tried this place based on so many great reviews. Thankfully we got one of the last tables, so didn't have to wait outside in the cold. Extensive menu, so plenty to choose from. Ordered three sushi rolls & one sashimi. While the sashimi was tasty, the pieces were *very* small. With one beer & one ginger tea, the bill came to 39 Euros. After paying & leaving - the waittress came and asked if we'd paid. I had to remind her that yes, and i'd included a tip & reminded her the change she gave me back. Many other sushi options in Berlin, will not return.

“Tokyo meets Berlin”
Reviewed 28 October 2013 via mobile

The best sushi you will find in Berlin!!! Shall it be the list of all traditional sushis or the starters... It all reminds me of my Tokyo trip. The quality of the fish is undeniable and the rice is well prepared. I wasn't in the mood for dessert but I gave it a shot, this macha cake was an interesting choice. Be sure you make a reservation if you plan to have diner there. Enjoy !!!

“Dissapointed”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

I was very dissapointed in Sasaya, especially after reading rave reviews on several food blogs. The biggest thing was that the sushi was WARM and the tuna was brown (not red/pink). Maybe I'm spoiled living in the NY metro area, but it just wasn't very good, and it was also very hot inside.
