To start with, nothing better than having real japanese people making the food and serving... its an amazing experience... the quality and price is also superb!!! it's a must for japanese food lovers... usually you have to book if you want a table... but there is also place in the sushi bar... the place is super cute....

I don't know what people have in mind opening restaurant in the middle of area with a biggest birthrate in Europe and being most unfriendly to the children staff in the world.

We were group of four and had a very quiet child with us in a very good mood, who was doing nothing more than playing with chopsticks, drinking milk and eating from mother's plate and the staff rudely came to us couple of times asking our child to play more quiet. It was very disappointing and harassing.

Looks like Japanese owners and workers of this restaurant has something against children but they do afraid to declare it in public, so, they do keep coming and harass families.

Can't say anything about food, even the kid wasn't our - we were REALLY shoked

Sasaya offers an incredible quaity of food at very affordable prices and in the heart of the fancy area of Prenzlauer Berg.
Their menu is varied, delicate, and reaching miles further than what usually is served in Japanese Restaurants.They make exquisite sushi, yes , but you can enjoy as well a full - weekly changing - list of what they call "spontanities".Appetizers and dishes that bring up the full spectrum of Japanese gastronomy.
The only thing that is really low is.....their price list.
Just to compare: their chirashi at 9,50 €.The last time I had one in the Brussels "Yamayu Santatsu" it costed 28 €.

We have visited sasaya regularly and were pleased with the food and service. The problem always has been that the people are stuffed in like in a can of sardines. Either coats are hanging over you or you might as well sit on the toilet. As well the isolation of the windows is appalling and therefore in winter the place is freezing.
Don't bother attempting to ring as they refuse to answer the phone. Our record is giving them 27 missed calls and now answer.

very minimal interior design,quality of the food is ok,it's not an isakaya place,but more a proper restaurant.
price are fair compared with portion size.
sushi is eatable,warm food can be very tasty.
not worth the fuss around this place.
