Fun atmosphere and some decent things on the menu. We tried some of the specialties and I think you would be better off sticking to the basics sushi rolls etc.

Sakura was a great choice for dinner at Alyeska. It's Sushi preparation were out of the world , tickled the taste buds to the core. The crab and shrimp sushi and some vegetable sushi both tasted real great and portions were generous. I would love to visit the restaurant again.

Nice restaurant, good food, friendly staff. If in a family best to share a sushi boat. Best spot is at the bar, where you can see the chef in action. We enjoyed talking to the Chef, which added to the experience. Pick the happy hour at 5pm, as it does make a difference to how much one pays

The food was fantastic and my daughter really loved the crunch roll! Love watching them make the sushi rolls in front of us. I will definitely come back to this restaurant next time we make it to Alyeska.

We had dinner at Sakura while staying at Alyeska resort. The ingredients were fresh & good quality and it was fun watching the chef making the sushi. It's a little bit pricy as you have to order multiple dishes to get satisfied especially if you're there for dinner.

It was small and the seating was family style-meaning you are seated next to other parties at the same large table. Cool, fun atmosphere but the food was very expensive.
