We stayed st the Alyeska Resort and discovered this restaurant there. We wanted a change from the typical foods and this certainly fit our desire. The sushi was freshly prepared in front of us and perfect! Our other items were good as well. The only item I didn't care for was the Udon soup. It lacked the flavor typical of... More

The chef behind the fresh fish bar with the mustache was not friendly- he did not acknowledge our presence- he was focused on other guests- the waitress was friendly-.the sushi was over priced for the quality- disappointed

The prices are quite high for AK. We had four different rolls as well as shrimp tempura. I did not feel that any of the rolls... More

Excellent sushi. Original creations along with traditional sushi fare.Great bar menu. I will miss the Sake Mojito as it was recently taken off the menu, though that won't downgrade my review (dear manager it almost did).

Had three sushi rolls between my husband and I. The Chugach Roll, Spicy Tuna Roll and the Hustler Roll (substituted the crab for spicy tuna) were all amazing. Very fresh fish and great service from the sushi chefs. If you want a fun show sit at the sushi bar and you are able to see everything being made.

The sushi is above average quality and the fish is always fresh. The waitstaff is very accommodating and you can get sushi in Girdwood.. which is awesome.

Sakura Asian Bistro in the Hotel Alyeska is the best place to enjoy fresh sushi and sashimi in Alaska! They offer traditional and creative options with a nice selection of sake. I love the Alyeska and the Hawiian rolls the best... but all rolls I have tried are amazing, fresh & delish! A must stop in Girdwood.
