This place is a little hole in the wall that delivers awesome food every time! The building leaves a bit to be desired but the staff and food keep me coming back every time!

When I was a kid growing up in Fairbanks, the South Cushman Kentucky Fried Chicken was like the last outpost of civilization before you drove through really bad neighborhoods and really funny provocative signs for establishments of "adult entertainment." While the general ambience of this area of town remains, the KFC is mercifully gone and has been replaced with the... More

Sushi is a dining experience that should be perfect every time.....preparation is so important, as well as the temp of the fish when served..........It is an art form never to be taken lightly. I've had many of the Sushi preparations here and found them to be ok. I believe atmosphere should be addressed as well. Watching TV when you'd like... More

Having moved to Fairbanks from the New York area in April and Japanese being my restaurant fare of choice,I've tried several places here. Wasabi Bay is not particularly esthetically appealing outside or inside, but the skill of the chef and the menu choices make up for that,in my opinion.

I am from California up for a visit and some people suggested this place. Overall it was good but nothing amazing. The lunch specials are a good price and taste really good. Personally I got the "No Name" roll and it came really heavy with "Screaming O" sauce. It was really sweet and I couldn't really taste the fish. Saying... More

If you are spicy lover, here you can try out the best spicy roll!!! My husband had the Galbi (basically rice and Korean style ribs), they were very generous with the portion and he loved it! I also had sashimi, I asked only for salmon and butter fish, my favorites, and they made it for upon my request! They were... More

My husband and I stopped in here for lunch based on good reviews and were not disappointed. My husband said the rainbow roll was the best he has ever had! Be warned, though, when they say a roll is spicy it's really spicy!! The spicy tuna roll about set me on fire.

I came here several months ago when I was in town on business and had a great experience. I decided to visit again and...WOW. Great food. Try the Crunchy Munchie Roll. AWSOME.
