If you go here for the sushi, you will find it just OK. Quickly delivered. But definitely not what you might expect for a place in a seafood heaven! Just average. We also tried the gyoza - not good. Skins too thick and over cooked. Also the noodle dishes were tasteless. It seemed that the broth for the noodle was... More

My wife and myself had different dishes and everything was just great tasting. A very friendly staff with very good service. All prices were reasonable here and I have no problem saying this was a great choice to eat at.

In Anchorage with my friend who is a flight attendant. After telling me that the flight crews ALWAYS go to this restaurant and that it has been owned by the same family for over 30 years, she refused to go! Still regretting that I didn't just find a way to go by myself. I mean, we have been friends since... More

I was truly hoping for some great sushi in Anchorage. My hotel recommended this establishment. The sushi here was very mediocre. On top of that, the rolls we tried exceeded $20.00 a roll. Being from NY...I am use to high prices of sushi restaurants but this place was very over priced for the fish they served. I am amazed by... More

I have been coming to this place for over 20 years. Brought my wife here for our first date, daughters for their big first dinner out with dad. But a few years ago they went through some management change and the food was not the same. My wife and I decided to give it one more try last week and... More

The sushi was nicely served, and the salmon was probably the best I've had (not surprising in Alaska). My wife loved the udon soup. The service was very attentive and we felt welcomed. All in all a good experience.

Stopped in for a quick dinner. Their selection was excellent, despite many varieties of sushi being out of season in June. The uni was in nice shape and the white salmon was outstanding! The hostess was very courteous and helpful.

The four of us enjoyed the Medium size sushi boat. The quality of the fish was very good and the quantity was more than ample. Short wine offering made up by Sake offerings

Love love love love their tempura udon soup with gyoza for lunch. Can't chose a favorite dinner option but the black cod is interesting and hard to beat when it's in season. Been eating here on business and personal trips to Anchorage for 20+ years and it's always good. I see some negative reviews but I'm thinking they perhaps don't... More
