The seasonal menu changes daily, utilizing produce from The Restaurant's on-site organic production garden.

"This place is simply beautiful, the food is delicious and well decorated. THe one thing that needs improvement is the service. Our waiter was impatient and curt most of the time but my girlfriends and I refuse to let him dampen the atmosphere and our spirit. I will still go back nevertheless, but I would really hope for a better service."

"Whenever we are in Las Angeles, we must visit The Bazaar. THe decor is amazing! Everywhere, you can find unique furniture, chandelier or decoration. We are never tired of visiting. The food is one of a kind. There is no bad food and the chips is a must try."

Sasa is a new Japanese inspired restaurant in Walnut Creek. Izakaya Restaurants are traditional small plate restaurants where friends go to have a drink and unwind after a long day. Situated in the historic 100 year old building that for many years housed the Walnut Creek Meat Market, this architectural jewel has been transformed into a ambiance that wows and invites guests to stay and enjoy the dining experience at SASA. Chef Cyrus Irudistan and Chef/Owner Philip Yang prepare Japanese influenced dishes from around the world. The staff welcomes you into their house and offers up comfort, hospitality and fun. The restaurant includes a full bar with a large Sake selection, outdoor patio, sushi bar and a commitment to fresh local seasonal faire.<br /><br />*Note: Personal wines welcome, a $20 corkage fee will apply per bottle

"Look out for the coffee table - granite lighted from underneath. Love the decor. Love the different table/chair arrangement. The food is fusion, great presentation and delicious."
