4.5

One of the best Japanese restaurants in Berlin.

I've eaten at Sasaya so many times I've lost count. [node:168946] might be trendier but Sasaya represents a more authentic Japanese experience. Excellent food with fresh ingredients, a comprehensive sake list and a sparse, traditional interior, what's not to like?

Food and drink

Sasaya focuses on purely Japanese cuisine, in contrast to most of the other Japanese restaurants in the city whose menus tend to branch into Pan-Asian dishes. Sasaya offers seasonal dishes – a mixture of mains and many different types of sushi - made with the freshest of fish and vegetables, leading many to call this the best Japanese restaurant in Berlin. A menu of traditional but inventive dishes is accompanied by a selection of daily specials and an excellent sake list.

Ambience

The interior is sleek and minimal, though the restaurant is generally quite busy. Authentic vibe with Japanese staff and customers. Try for one of the corner Japanese-style floor tables where you sit on cushions at a low table, or sit at the sushi bar to watch the chefs at work. For more space, ask for the table nearest the window.

Service

Efficient.

Location

Sasaya is located on Lychener Straße, just up from the popular Helmholtplatz in Prenzlauer Berg. There are plenty of bars in the area.

Price advice

You can eat well here for around 15 euros per person. For 25 euros per person you can eat sushi til you drop.
