Regulars come for the good-value business lunch buffet featuring classic Japanese staples in serene surroundings. For dinner, expect the occasional chef's specials highlighting seasonal fare and more inventive creations.
Compared to other Japanese restaurants, Sagano’s menu is relatively compact. However, it offers sufficient variety, with all the favourite bases covered.
• The much-touted house speciality lobster roll and Wagyu beef may be unavailable on a weeknight. Call ahead to check or order if they are a must.
• Don’t miss the toothsome chewy hot stone-grilled baby calamari with mayonaise and ebikko, custardy- soft chawanmushi and silken agedashi tofu that’s sheathed in a sheer skin of gossamer-light batter.
