This is the best sushi I have had in the Yukon. The quality of the ingredients was good, the servers were friendly and I found the prices reasonable. The two cautions I have are the food took an exceptionally long time to arrive (group of six order) and that parking at lunch time can be a... read more

Sorry but I cannot remember what dishes I had when I was there this last summer on a trip to and from Alaska. However, it was excellent enough that I went back on the return trip and remember being very pleased with the meal.

When I have meetings in Whitehorse for the week, I usually eat at least half of my meals at Sakura Sushi. They make excellent sushi!

The food itself is nicely presented and reasonably authentic. Portions are generous and prices are fair.
