Expensive but Good Sushi

I ordered 1 Spicy Smoke Roll ($19.oo), 1 Dangerous Roll ($21.oo), 1 Tiger Roll ($22.oo), 1 Spicy Crunch Roll ($17.oo), Edamame ($5.oo), and two drinks.

I was greeted warmly when I walked in the door at lunch, and seated immediately. Food service was fast, and the miso soup was excellent. I ordered tempura veggies, and although it was beautifully presented, I wish the tempura had been crispy. Reasonably priced and very nice staff. Perhaps dinners have more "atmosphere", but this was a good quick stop.... More

This is one of my favorite places to go when I'm in Anchorage. Every visit has been perfect. I've never been to Japan, but this food seems more traditional. It doesn't seem to be a trendy sushi bar. Food has been excellent and flavorful.

I like sushi and eat a lot of sushi all over the world, this was probably one of the most disappointing sushi lunches I ever had. The sushi rice wasn't right, the taste of the sushi far from great, the udon noodles tasteless. Only the teppan halibut was quite decent. Service was so so, efficient but heartless. Alaska overall is... More

We were looking for something different in Anchorage and came across Kumagoro, a sushi restaurant in the downtown area. We love sushi and figured that with the abundance of local seafood, a sushi restaurant would be a good choice for a change of pace. The meal was mixed for us; some of the dishes were quite good, others just so-so.... More

We were looking to eat something different from seafood which is definitely the food to eat in Alaska. That said we decided for sushi. The concierge recommend this restaurant and it was fantastic. Lots of different and creative rolls as well as the traditional nigiris. Price about $40 per person

The sushi is excellent; superb, fresh salmon roe! Also had a second meal of a lunch bento box of halibut teriyaki. It was huge, and the vegetable sides--bean sprout, spinach, and hijiki with beans were all nicely flavored. The salad of iceberg lettuce was nothing special. The accompanying rice was very good and freshly made. I have two quibbles. 1.... More

Dinner for family of 5 (3 generations) after a long day's travel. The server was very helpful in picking out a good variety of dishes. The service was quick. The presentation was excellent -- adding to the whole experience. The taste was wonderful. The spicing and preparation was just right. A great evening.

We had a few hours to spend in downtown Anchorage, but we also didn't want to miss our bus to the cruise dock. A shop owner recommended Kumagoro for sushi and tempura, and we're SOOOOO glad we went there. Friendly staff, lots of choices, and super fresh food - what a nice change from the cruise ship meals! It's a... More

Yes it sounds crazy but my wife loves Japanese food and the quality rice that is usually found with it. We just stepped of a cruise ship and although the food was excellent their choice of rice was not and they used it for everything even sushi which usually uses even better quality rice. So she was starving for good... More
