We've been eating here for the last year or so, and it is truly my favorite local restaurant. Granted, I've never tried the sushi (I'm vegetarian), but the hibachi never disappoints. The chefs have stellar attitudes and skill, and the food is absolutely delicious. It's also very convenient that you can make reservations through Open Table!

If you have a group for dinner, there isn't a better place in Brighton. The staff is typically fun, but will almost always depend on the liveliness of your group. The hidden gem here, however, is the sushi. It's fresh, with lots of available rolls, and always tasty.

Our family loves the hibachi side and the sushi bistro side. The kids find the chefs on the hibachi side entertaining and the prepared in front of you meals delicious. Honestly, over 10+ times going, never a bad meal, not even a marginal one - the quality of the beef is outstanding. Love the friend rice and veggies as well,... More

We love Saganos! The Hibachi tables offer entertainment, while the chefs are cooking on the heated area. The meals are pretty good.......although a tad pricey. We come here for special occasions.

Sushi was ok. Hibachi was good. Secret sauce was yummy!! Service was lacking. Server started off strong, then disappeared. Never asked for refills, didn't clear away plates and no mention of dessert, we actually looked up dessert options online and chose to go to Coldstone.

This was the third time we have been here. The first two were great. This time the steak was so tough I couldn't eat it. Very disappointing!

OK, it's a japanese steakhouse. They do the same old song and dance, flip the knives/spatula, fling a piece of food that you try to catch in your mouth, etc. One trick pony, been there, seen that. My kids, however, love this place. We take them on their birthday's. One time when I was there with the kids there were... More

This is your typical Japanese steakhouse with dining around a large hibachi, watching the chefs cook your meal. Although there wasn't anything particularly wrong with our experience, it just wasn't particularly memorable, either. I've been to these sorts of places in the past and there was always more display of food chopping and presentation to your plate. For the price,... More

We have many Birthdays here and always have fun. The sushi is great and I usually get Filet and Scallops always a good call. The Soup is good and like the dressing on the salad here. Kids love it.
