Saga is a modern, international food restaurant where clients can not only delight themselves with exquisite dishes, but also enjoy the tropical view like atmosphere combined with its modern architecture. In Saga, there is a prevalence of modernism in both its food and design while contrasting with the tropical ambiance of the landscape. In Saga, international food is transformed with the blending of tastes from different parts of the world. The experience is only enhanced by its already renowned gourmet bakery.

Fine dining worth finding

Tucked away near PF Chang's is a gem which is worth your effort to find! The owner will probably greet you personally, and the food is excellent, with the desserts exceptional. Classy atmosphere and beautiful presentation, especially the sushi.

The restaurant is pretty nice, Spacius and very confortable. The food was not what I expected and it is by far not cheap. Also, there is no parking, and you only get 1 hour of free parking which is not enough

Maybe they were having a bad night when we went, but we had the most expensive charred burgers ever and bad service on top of that. Won't go back.

I went to this restaurant more than a couple of times and it was always satisfactory. Their sesame kobe chicken salad is to die for. It is an example of what "fusion food should taste like. I cannot vouch for other types of cuisine offered in this restaurant but japanese-fusion style food at this restaurant is great choice. Their rolls... More

I ordered curry shrimp with fish and plantains. The curry sauce was terrible with too much salt. Plantains were too thick and uncooked. When I finished almost half of my plate and complained, I was only offered to have a dessert on the house, but I was in a hurry so could not take it. Yet they charged me the... More

Went on a business dinner. The server was excellent in his suggestions and had a very good knowledge about wine and every dish there was on the menu. The area is just beautiful and not noise, so we could have a very good conversation. It really was a nice experience!
