Excellent sushi. Original creations along with traditional sushi fare.Great bar menu. I will miss the Sake Mojito as it was recently taken off the menu, though that won't downgrade my review (dear manager it almost did).

Had three sushi rolls between my husband and I. The Chugach Roll, Spicy Tuna Roll and the Hustler Roll (substituted the crab for spicy tuna) were all amazing. Very fresh fish and great service from the sushi chefs. If you want a fun show sit at the sushi bar and you are able to see everything being made.

Definitely recommend over other onsite eateries. We didn't go here at first but glad we made it before the end of our trip.

The sushi is above average quality and the fish is always fresh. The waitstaff is very accommodating and you can get sushi in Girdwood.. which is awesome.

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! Also tried a little bit of the smoked squid, it was delicious! Would go great with the seaweed salad. By far the restaurant and... More

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.
