Was introduced to this place through friends and I have returned at least 10 times, best place in anchorage hands down and the greatest bento box ever and you get to choose a roll off the menu!!

I'd go back but not really noteworthy. I find more sushi options every time I return to Anchorage. Staff was pleasant...maybe marginally attentive. Ordered a roll off the menu and came some different, so confirm as you order.

Me and my friends ate here and just nothing was good. My stomach heart after I ate here. I think the tuna was in the freezer for a year before they served it to me...

Three of us decided to try the Dami for dinner and were not disappointed. All our food was excellent and the setting was quite nice as well with a large indoor fish pond right by out table. It all made for a very pleasant evening.

The food was excellent. Fresh, flavorful fish and correctly prepared rice. It's one of the best sushi I ever had. The menu is large so anyone can find they're pick. I gave it only 3 "dots" because the decor is pretty off and the place isn't that clean, but it's still worth visiting!

We took a chance with the Dami and we're glad that we did. We had a variety box which contained teriyaki, tempura, rice and a Japanese roll of our choice. Soup and salad are included, the soup and salad were ok, but the main course was excellent. The decor needs a bit of updating and so does the music, but... More

Went down for a quick lunch and I was not disappointed. I had almost given up hope of finding good sushi in Anchorage. But luckily I found Dami's. Fresh food and fast service.

Last night, my wife and I asked a local resident to recommend a good sushi restaurant. She told us that there is a good one "next to Mad Myrna's" about a mile east of the downtown visitor's center. As we worked our way eastward on E 5th Ave, we wondered if we had been "punked." We could not find a... More

Food quality good along with decent portion size. Service is nothing to write home about. Décor is underwhelming. Prices average for Anchorage.
