Lunch in a box is an excellent design with good and new food. I had the beef and it was very well done with fresh sides and enough to. Share.

Mr. Lee and his wife have been here for over 20 years. While the restaurant is unassuming the food is great, especially the sashimi which Mr. Lee personally prepares. The hot fried chicken wings/legs are always my kids (young adults) favorite, since they are always crispy on the outside, not tender on the inside and not greasy. They are always... More

We had dinner here recently. If you are a fan of Japanese food, this is definitely the place to come. The food is fresh and well prepared. The staff is helpful and friendly. The room is small but intimate and the décor adds to the experience.

Nothing that is going to blow your socks off but very pleasant experience. Good service, good food and reasonable prices. Solid sushi place where you can get in without a reservation and get out without breaking the bank. Give it a try.

Beautiful, generous maki and cuts of sushi. Sit at the sushi bar, if possible, and watch Mr. Lee work his magic. Attentive service and fair pricing. Best sushi in the area!!

We came for lunch on a weekend vacation while on our way to Chicago. We read the reviews on trip advisor and decided to try this place. The decor is pleasant and the instrumental music selections played through speakers was nice. The food is very good. I recommend the Tenju which is tempura shrimp and veggies over rice. A nice...

I'm a big fan of Sagano and eat there regularly. Have tried many varied dishes on the menu and they are all excellent. I mostly eat maki rolls and they do a great job. Prices are very reasonable and I highly recommend Sagano for sushi in Barrington.

It's a nice place, great Japanese cuisine, wonderful sushi, and plenty of cooked dishes to choose from, as well, such as asparagus-wrapped beef, ginger chicken wings, etc. Have been here with family and with friends, it's got a nice atmosphere and very good service.
