Restaurant Review: Saga (123rd and Amsterdam) 9/2/2006

There's a new Japanese/Vietnamese place on Amsterdam near 123rd. It has a sushi bar and a bubble tea menu, which are both definitely welcome additions to the area. On a recent visit, my husband and I tried the summer rolls with chicken. The sauces were pretty good, and the wraps included both fresh mint and basil. My only complaint is that the rolls were not tightly wrapped so it got pretty messy. Strangely enough, the miso soup was really flavorful the first time we visited, which was the first week or so the restaurant was open. Now, as few months later, the soup was unremarkable. Maybe just an off day. After the soup, I had a few pieces of sushi (unagi and hamachi, both pretty good) as well as one of the daily special rolls called spicy girl (black pepper tuna with spicy tuna and roe on top). Delicious. My husband had an avocado roll and a sweet potato roll which were pretty good, but not phenomenal. On a previous trip, I tried the curry chicken lunch bento box, which was good, but not something I will probably recommend or crave in the future. To drink there is a bubble tea menu and Vietnamese ice coffee, as well as some sake, beer, and wine choices. All in all, the restaurant is pleasant and clean, the sushi is pretty good. I am interested in trying the Vietnamese some other time. A welcome addition to the neighborhood, but does not compete with the nicer sushi places in the city. more
