I was looking forward to trying a sushi place close to home that I hadn't been to yet, and Dami did not disappoint. It was not a-m-a-z-i-n-g, but it was good. My husband and I stopped in last night to order take out, and I have to admit I was a little nervous when I walked in. Dami shares a... More

When Dami first opened my wife, kids and I have continually returned to enjoy our favorite sushi rolls like the Trent Choice, Ninza Roll and the Dragon Roll. A few years later we all moved down in the Seattle area and talk about how good there food is. When I make it back Anchorage I almost always return. There food... More

Considering how expensive we found everything in Alaska, Dami was a pleasant surprise! We got there around 7 pm on a Sunday night (shares a building/parking lot with the Econolodge next door) and found it pretty empty. The servers and hostess were friendly and welcoming and the restaurant had a nice ambiance. The lighting was soft, but sufficient to for... More

Dami by far has the best sushi in Anchorage. Always delicious. Service has always been good. The Calvin's Choice or Lobster roll is always a good pick along with the seaweed salad and the fresh oysters (to die for). My husband says the short ribs are the best he's ever had.

This restaurant is hidden in an Econo Inn. Huge menu - almost too big. The service was okay, but the food was delicious. Our party of 5 enjoyed bento boxes, shrimp fried rice, crunchy tuna sushi, shrimp tempura and a veggie dish. The portions were quite large, so most of us took home leftovers. Could not have been more surprised.

If you're downtown this is an ok choice for sushi. It is in a sketchy area in a motel. Close to the Sheraton if you are staying there. Otherwise not worth the hike. Indifferent service. Very good sushi rolls however.

Love the food but today we walked out. The old lady yelled at us and made us feel very upset and most unwelcome.

A coworker and I are here for a week or so on business and had a hankering for some good Japanese food. Dami happened to be spotted on the way back to our hotel from work, so we stopped by. I'm sure glad we did! As the title of this review says, the Red Dragon sushi roll is The BEST!... More
