The food here is fresh, flavorful and cooked to order and right in front of you! It's always fun if you get a chef that likes to play around with the patrons at your table. I have never had fried rice like this either - buttery deliciousness. I love the shrimp, steak and chicken too. The noodles are so tasty...... More

My wife and I always enjoy this Chinese steak house in Fenton. This is a great spot to eat if you have the money and the time.

Took my parent here for anniversary dinner and frankly it was the fastest dinner I ever had. We sat down, ordered drinks, ordered dinner and soup, salad, food came then bill....we weren't close to being down eating....no checking if we wanted anything more....I have been to other hibachi places and much more relaxed. I don't think I would return..Ukai in... More

We only go to Sagano for special occasions since it is a little pricey, but it is a treat whenever we go. The portions are quite large and everything is delicious! The scallops are huge and some of the best around. Dip everything in yum yum sauce, trust me!

I used to love this place, however it seems like they have gotten too big. Prices have gone up, and customer service has gone down! I tried to call to make a reservation 3 times yesterday and they can't even answer the phone? Luckily, I found another Japanese steak house that I like better! Sorry, you guys dropped the ball!

I am sorry to hear about your problem making a reservation yesterday. We are working on technology that will better enable us to handle the volume of calls that we receive on a daily basis for takeout orders and diner reservations as well. Yes our prices have went up over the years, we constantly have to evaluate the ever rising... More

Incredible food and drinks. Excellent service. Be prepared to wait. They are always busy. Try the sushi side for faster seating. We go here for date night or couples night out. The filet & shrimp meal is outstanding!

There was 4 of us ladies out for dinner. We ordered dinner and we asked white rice or fried (wasn't aware that fried rice was $2.50 extra) as we are eating our salads, something hit me on my back. I looked around to see what hit me on my back, and there was a greasy onion piece on the floor.... More

I love coming to Saganos with friends for lunch whenever I am in town! You can get a huge lunch for $10, and add even more flair with their yummy double crunch roll.
