    The menu is fusion without being fusion, new but classic -- and all of the sushi is superb. Bring the gold card and don't forget to make reservations. Read more

    This was the best sushi I have ever had in my life. The seared albacore tuna sashimi was out of this world, & the diablo roll is the best. The spicy ponzu & macho sauce are unbelievable.

    You have to order one of chef-owner Wayne Conwell’s imaginative omakase menus, which offer the best in modern and traditional Japanese cuisine. It’ll keep you coming back for more.

    You MUST order the dragon roll. Don't look at the price, just do it. Those strawberries are game changers.Sitting in the "basement" isn't ideal, but better than waiting an hour for a table.

    This spot and Sushi Den are the best in Denver. Sushi Den has a cooler atmosphere but Sushi Sasa is quieter and a bit calmer. Fantastic fish and service at both.

    It's pricey, but this is some of the best sushi in Denver. Others will go for the noisier Sushi Den, but it's nice to be able to have a normal volume conversation here.

    You WILL NOT go wrong with the diablo roll or the firefry roll. Two of the best I've tried, but I doubt you'll be disappointed with anything you order here!!

    Sushi Sasa offers traditional Japanese food and barrows influences from other global cuisines. With a simplistic decor and attentive service, Conwell's refined food truly shines. [Eater 38 Member]
