The best Japanese restaurant in Berlin (Sasaya)


'Best' is not a word I use lightly, but really, Sasaya is just fantastic. Their sushi is excellent and they also have a wide range of other Japanese offerings. The turquoise and beige interior is perennially crowded with German and Japanese guests, to the point where I stopped going for a while, tired of the crush, until I figured out that lunch remains the best meal to enjoy there, in the leisurely lucent calm with baroque quartets on the stereo system. Best of all is Sunday lunch, when the rest of Berlin is brunching away on stale rolls and curling slices of sweaty cheese, but even then you'd do well to reserve.
