The only thing I didn't like about Sakura is the stone tables are freezing cold on your bare arms - so wear a sweater! Their sushi was some of the freshest, most delicious and beautifully prepared I've ever had and they have sake flights that are really fun. So try a few that you wouldn't normally try, you can always... More

The sushi is fine but a little pricey even for AK high food prices. But the sushi chef was really nice and friendly, so we had a great time. Would have eaten there again but it's closed most days, only open Fri-Sun.

We were unable to get last minute reservations at any of the top rated restaurants in Girdwood and so went to Sakura. My kids ordered the Bento Boxes.

The Sakura Sushi restaurant was delicious and Chef Toby really went out of his way to make us all feel welcome. And left FULL and a bit drunk on tasty Sake and delighted to clamor back up to our rooms. Bravo!

Our party of 4 was told that there would be a 30 minute wait, to which they added 10 minutes each time we went up to ask so we ended up waiting for 2.5 hours. We would glance at the list and see that 6 different parties of 2 were seated before us, only because they were parties of 2... More
