I was feeling somewhat weighed down by American food until I discovered Kumagoro. A Japanese restaurant run by Japanese people was a welcome discovery. The food was very fresh and I felt almost as if I was back in Japan.

Looks like a tourist trap, between tourist gift shops and tour operators, but it is quite good and reasonable priced. The Bento boxes are good.

I like the fact that I walk into a Sushi place and immediately see a full house both locals. Service was good, but the 2 girls were running around trying to keep up with everything. The Gyoza is made fresh each day, and tasted really good. Portions were pretty good size. Wife had seaweed salad and said it was good,... More

My husband and I ate dinner here on the 4th of July. The portions were huge! After reading a review that the sushi was expensive for the size, I was pleasantly surprised. I have never had rolls that big before. We ordered way too much food for the two of us. We ordered the king salmon box dinner, the gyoza,... More

Tried the King Crab leg. Not as even close to the Ray's restaurant in Seward. Seems over cocked and hard to chew. Not very fresh either. Not recommended. Over priced.

There were four adults and three toddlers in out party. Needless to say our babes made a HUGE mess. We tried to clean up all the rice but the wait staff wouldn't hear of it. They were so friendly and accommodating. We did leave a 25% tip to pay for the "damages." Food was very good.

Not an elegant dining room but friendly staff, homely atmosphere and most importantly excellent food. The choices are many and all look good. The combination plate C5 I had was all fantastic. I will be back for more of a really good eating experience.

I live in New York, so I am used to expensive food, but Kumagoro is out of control! Shouldn't fish be cheaper in Alaska? (The answer is, I haven't found any cheap fish in Anchorage...). One of the lunch specials is $18...and at least one roll is more than $20...The entrees go up from there! I thought it must be... More

I grew up in places like Texas and Kentucky, now retired in Alaska and finding out that fish is fresh here. i developed a fish snob attitude ever since i started eating at Kumagoro. Now, mind you they aren't that way here, in fact the owner was rolling my tuna and was very kind and open. i just mean my... More
