Fun sushi/teppan restaurant inside the Aleyska Resort

First and foremost, the food was excellent. That (to me) is always the most important thing about a restaurant..."how was the food?" The restaurant is somewhat small...the night we went, we had a short wait to be seated. There is a sushi "bar" where you can belly up and watch the sushi chef... read more

The place has an urban feel, which is cool and unusual for this area. However we waited for 50 minutes for a table and then waited for another full hour for the arrival of our food. The sushi was fresh but the portions were very small and not worth the price. The sushi chefs were both overtly hitting on women... More

Needing something to finish off a full day wondering the Alaskan trails and feeling like the 9 pm was more like 2 pm we wondered into the Sakura. We had a private space for the four of us. Sharing a cucumber salad, soup, tempura veggies and shrimp,and calamari, we left full and glad we had chosen Sakura. It didn't hurt... More

We ate here late one night while staying at the hotel. Some of the best sushi I have ever had. We liked it so much we went back durning their 5-6pm happy hour. The only negative it's not open for lunch and it's only open M-F.

The chefs at the bar have wonderful humor and they love to make sushi! You can defiantly tell in their work! It's like art! And very yummy art at that.

The menu only has a dozen choices or so. There are only about 6 tables in the restaurant. Service was great, food was awesome!

Long wait to get in, the "hostess?" was rude, but the food was fantastic. The chefs were both very talented.

If you are a fiend for sushi, then this is the restaurant for you! Just call ahead to make sure they are open since it's not every day in the shoulder seasons!

I live in Hawaii and am surrounded with high quality sushi restaurants and this one is good but nothing special. It's usually very crowded and the seating is community style where you could be seated with several others on the same table. If you want to eat in peace, then this is not the place for you. The evening we... More
