I knew I had come once before a couple years ago and remembered it was good, so thought I'd try it again. The sushi rolls are a tad more expensive than some other places, with nearly all rolls being $12 or $13. But I got a small plate of edamame, egg drop soup, and a salad, as well as a... More

A short walk from the Sheraton this was a decent sushi/japanese/korean restaurant. I went a little overboard because of the variety on the menu. The kimchi was great- not overly spicy- but had nice flavor. I ordered a couple sushi appetizers and a tempura appetizer. It was way too much food. Service was a little slow--but the waitress explained that... More

Very satisfied, nice interior, Koi fish pond, young beautiful and kind professional waitstaff, excellent tempura appetizers and sushi rolls! We were very impressed and so glad we chose Dami for tonight's dinner after having tried 3 other big and overrated "brands" here in Anchorage with tasteless cuisine...!

I have loved coming here for at least 10 years. For those of us that love tempura, they have it and make it very well. Can't wait to go again!

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

Very fresh sashimi, (Salmon). Waitress were very unfriendly. Not rude, but not chatty or friendly. Will go for the fresh fish. Grill good is average.

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.
