Sakura Asian Bistro in the Hotel Alyeska is the best place to enjoy fresh sushi and sashimi in Alaska! They offer traditional and creative options with a nice selection of sake. I love the Alyeska and the Hawiian rolls the best... but all rolls I have tried are amazing, fresh & delish! A must stop in Girdwood.

I went to the Sakura because I was staying at the Alyeska and this was the only other option besides the Aurora Bar and Grill. I usually eat at Japanese restaurants with my family, and didn't find anything special about the Sakura. I would rather look for other restaurants near the hotel.

Sat at the bar, was offered the daily specials. Ordered from the menu, the wagyu beef roll was amazing! The Alyeska Roll by far is my favorite. Tried the seaweed salad and it was delicious too!

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.

Best meal we have had in Alaska, by far. The sushi was fresh and the Edamame and other dishes were excellent. The hot sake was a winner. We were seated at a communal table - we are were a party of 3- and had to sit next to each other - bc the table was too wide so we're not... More

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

Thank umaysushi
