This is my second visit to Sasaya and after great memories of the first time, I returned. The menu is a little to huge for it's own good, since it offers a variety of Japanese Tapas, so it was hard to pick and choose between too many choices. The servers seemed understaffed since it took them long to serve us and the tables surrounding us. At one point, our waitress disappeared for a solid half hour, while there was one guy on the floor running around and the sushi chef himself had to pitch in. The food is definately meat-oriented: grilled whole pike mackarel (including the fish's eyes that look at you helplessly while you eat his body), rib eye with ponzu, calamari (and i mean real deep fried octipus legs, not nicely cut into shapes where no longer recognize it as an animal). Definately not a place for vegetarians, though they do offer seaweed and salads. All in all: the experience really depends on what you order here. If there is a waitress to help, ask, if not you might get lost and stuck with a new inclination toward veganism.
Pros: Sapporo on Tap!, Sake choices
Cons: Understaffed, Menu almost too large, takes half an hour to read
