Fresh and Tasty Break from Cruise Ship Food

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... read 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

As a frequent business traveler I'm always on the lookout for nice but casual places for a solo meal. Sushi often fits the bill and this places was just a couple of blocks from my hotel so I thought I'd give it try. It's on a lively stretch of W 4th Ave in downtown Anchorage, and was pretty empty when... More

Right downtown, nice atmosphere. Wide selection of sushi, plus other options like tempura. Nice choices of saki. Pleasant service. Short walk to PAC.

Kumagoro is our all-time favorite Japanese restaurant outside of Japan! We have yet to find another place in Alaska or in the lower 48 that is as fresh and authentic. Every time we visit Alaska (every two years or so) we make sure to stop by Kumagoro for lunch. They are a little pricey (but Japanese food usually is). We... More

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
