We did some research on the best restaurants in Fairbanks, Alaska before we left on our trip. Thinking we might want something different after eating salmon and king crab throughout our trip, we chose Wasabi Bay as a "change of pace" on one of our last days visiting in Alaska and the fact that we happen to love Japanese food...

The place was deserted and did not look like much. I had the salmon teriyaki, it was nice. My partner had some Sashimi and he says that it was great (he is very picky when it comes to sushi). Prices where ok. Overall, we did like it.

Great sushi. The sushi chef came over to our table to help us decide what to order. So did the waitress. Needless to say, the service was spot on. The fish was fresh & delicious. The white tuna (escolar) melted in your mouth. The salmon was incredible too. If we are ever in Fairbanks again we will definitely be back!

Dinner tonight with the family at Wasabi Bay on South Cushman. As we experienced on a previous visit, great sushi. great flavors, warm attentive service, all in a pleasantly simple atmosphere. A minor mistake regarding ingredients in a sushi roll was met with a quick apology and offer to make it right. Hit all the right notes, no problems... Not... More

So I've eaten my fair share of sushi on Fairbanks. This is hands down the best. The sashimi is the freshest in town. Udon is done right. But my favorite is the salted grilled mackerel with rice. If you are looking for a real Japanese restaurant with more to offer than teriyaki chicken, go here!!!

This is some of the best sushi I have ever had, definitely the best I have ever had in Fairbanks. I recommend the Lion King Roll. It is delicious. Wasabi Bay definitely does not disappoint.
