Located conveniently for folks working in the quartier of Nations, Sagano is a popular place for lunch. 4 set menus to choose from at reasonable prices, plats du jour, as well as an extensive menu with both Chinese and Japanese items. Tasty sushi. The tempura udon is a lunch-time favorite on chilly days. The decor is pleasant, with dark wood,... More

I live in Geneva and this was my first visit to this restaurant. I like so much fish so I chose to eat tempura. Nothing of extraordinarily. I paid 30 CHF for miniatures of 2 shrimps, 1 noix san Jacques, 1 squid few pieces of vegetables I don't remember 3 or 4. Honestly for lunch I was hungry. Judge yourselves.... More

On my third day in Geneva, I no longer had very high hopes of finding really tasty food. My colleague turned out to love the Japanese cuisine, so I looked for that in the surroundings, found this one and noticed the mixed reviews. So my expectations were moderate. Well, we experienced neither bad food nor crappy service. It definitely was... More

They offer very godd japanese meal. The sushi is just great. The restaurant is very bussy during the lunch time because of much international organizations around. They have not expensive menus during lunch time. It is better to book place there. The service is good.

Let's start with the good things.. Atmosphere: great, as I have also seen the downstairs that had a typical Japanese tables and sits. On the ground floor instead general setting but with a feeling of Japan. Staff: good, however depending on who.. Some seems very fast on servicing but without any emotion on smiling or taking care of the client..... More

The service is the hiccup here. You arrive hungry. No one shows up to serve you. To eat the tablecloth or not? I've been her frequently over the years and have never once been disappointed with the vegetarian options.

Having had mixed experiences in the past, I returned to Sagano in Geneva for a business lunch where waiters were completely disorganized - got the wrong drinks, had to wait over twenty minutes for the starters of the set menu (one of two daily choices), cutlery was lacking for one of us. When we enquired about what was happening two... More

Nice for business lunches, clean and great food. Very good service. Could be a more flavourful , but this is typical Japanese so this is expected.

Fresh delicious sushi, sashimi and maki. They also have delicious cooked food for those who don't like raw fish. Personnel are friendly and restaurant is fairly spacious and has private partitions. Lunchtime service is a bit slow because the restaurant is usually packed. If you want to appreciate your time, then consider an evening visit. The restaurant is suitable for... More
