This is a really cute restaurant. The food is good. They did forget to bring one of our sushi rolls though. When we asked about, they didn't come back until the very end of our meal to tell us they couldn't figure out what happened. By that time, forget it, everyone else was done. But those of us who did... More

Absolutely the worst customer service. I came here for a late dinner at 9pm last Tues and was turned away because they said they were going to stop serving at 9pm while their website indicated they closed at 10:30pm plus several tables were occupied. Against my better judgement we decided to return out of convenience because it's next door to... More

I have been going to Sushi Sasa for 5 years and always sit at the sushi bar. The sushi chefs are outstanding and they work with such intensity to artistically prepare the plate to please their customers. It is such an amazing experience to watch the masters at work. While I have had several items on the menu, admittedly I... More

Salmon sushi was delicious, also the spicy salmon roll. We also ordered some sort of pork belly appetizer. Looked great presentation wise, but not my favorite dish texturally. Also had Sasa trio. Not what I expected, came out as a circle shaped dip you could see contained 3 different types of puréed fish with crackers for spreading. Nothing to write... More

Visiting Denver for a few days, we had friends tell us that Sasa had some of the best sushi in the area, so of course we had to check it out. I'm glad we did, and then we ended up eating lunch there two days in a row because it was so good! The Pink Lady roll and Strawberry Shortcake... More

We love out sushi, and being from the West Coast were chauvinistic about sushi in the Rocky Mountains. We were nicely surprised by Sasa sushi. We had the soybeans with lemon and garlic, which were delicious. The sushi had lightly vinegared rice, topped by very fresh and very tasty fish. We had some of the daily specials: grilled octopus and... More

This is a good solid Sushi joint -- a good solid menu overall -- Good cocktails and wine list -- it is not as good as it once was -- service is generally good

I got take out, but when I picked up the food the restaurant looked very classy. The sushi was really good. We got the dragon and diablo rolls and salmon and tuna nigiri. The fish tasted fresh and allow it was great quality. I would come here again.

I have yet to have anything here I did not fully love. The sushi is perhaps more pricey than some places, but the ambiance and knowledge of the staff makes up for it. I first was given a glass of wine that was not great, I decided to ask for something else and the staff was very gracious and helpful.... More

Sushi was excellent - but disappointed that they have no "masu" box sake. Omakase (Chef's discretion) has gone from the menu as well... It used to be a fantastic sushi spot but lost some of the charm.
