Saagar serves a terrific Indian buffet lunch. There is always a wide selection of flavorful, fresh vegetarian and meat dishes to choose from. The meal includes plain or garlic naan. It's good for business (relatively quiet) or lunch with friends.... or you can even go solo - the buffet setup means even a single diner can taste multiple dishes. Dining... More

By Indian standards of taste and food quality I will rate this restaurant as below average but comparing to Indian Restaurants in US I can give this restaurant as average rating. Ambiance is good.

I have never had Indian food that was authentic until today. I had lamb curry, rice, dal, and more. The food is excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed everything. This place is impressive and the service is great. There is a buffet available but we ordered off the menu. I hope I can find a place like this one in my area.... More

Ate a la carte mid week. Let's start positive. The onion bhaji were lovely and crispy. The chicken tikka was succulent and spicy. The poppadoms had a caraway aroma. Service! It really gets my goat when waiters reach over the table to attempt silver service. Do it properly or don't bother! After the mains the plates were cleared but the... More

We, a group of eight - family and friends, had gone for lunch to Saagar Fine Indian Cuisine Restaurant located at 4241 MacArthur Blvd., Newport Beach, CA-92660, which is near John Wayne Orange County Airport. The restaurant is owned and run by an Indian Sikh-Punjabi couple - Baljeet Kaur and her husband Gogi Singh Sandher. The restaurant is fairly big... More

We are staying at the Fairmont, Newport Beach, researched restaurants in the area and choose Saagar. It was a short walk across a very wide highway, lucky for us, it was Sunday evening and no traffic. We ordered a single Chicken Curry, Garlic Naan, Indian Salad and Mango Chutney. There were two of us and the food was plentiful, we... More

I stayed at hotel across the street (Fairmont) This had very good food and great service. Not busy (kinda strange since its a big place in a nice area with good food). Must have been an off night, but great for me. I had Chicken Tikka Masala. Very tender and good spices. Check i tout.

I have mixed feeling about this place. When we first arrived the thing we immediately noticed was how hot it was inside. They had the front and rear door open but without a breeze, it wasn't moving any of the heat out. To their credit, the employee did turn on the air conditioning and surprisingly within about 15 minutes, you... More

Take away! Staying at hotel nearby to this restaurant I thought I would give it a go. Walking in the front door I noticed restaurant was very quiet and I waited a good five minutes before anyone came to front reception. At that point I decided to do take away. Food was OK with lamb biryani being more rice than... More

Went there at 1:30 PM on Sunday June 7th. They had a lunch buffet, but when I asked to order from the menu I was informed that the kitchen was closed. If that was the case it begs the question - where was the food on the buffet coming from. I had the sense that something wasn't roght so i... More
