Dinner tonight with the family at Wasabi Bay on South Cushman. As we experienced on a previous visit, great sushi. great flavors, warm attentive service, all in a pleasantly simple atmosphere. A minor mistake regarding ingredients in a sushi roll was met with a quick apology and offer to make it right. Hit all the right notes, no problems... Not... More

So I've eaten my fair share of sushi on Fairbanks. This is hands down the best. The sashimi is the freshest in town. Udon is done right. But my favorite is the salted grilled mackerel with rice. If you are looking for a real Japanese restaurant with more to offer than teriyaki chicken, go here!!!

This is some of the best sushi I have ever had, definitely the best I have ever had in Fairbanks. I recommend the Lion King Roll. It is delicious. Wasabi Bay definitely does not disappoint.

Hubby and I are so happy to call this our favorite sushi place in Fairbanks, and a top sushi place in Alaska. At first glance, I was scared. It is right next to this shady looking dollar store and I thought we were in the wrong place. Nope, right place. Thankfully, when you walk in the restaurant, there is a... More

I checked twice because it almost seems like we ate at a different restaurant from the other reviewers, but, no, same restaurant. We had seen from other reviews that the restaurant was not impressive from the outside, so that was not an issue. I like all restaurants to be clean but am particularly concerned by the cleanliness of a sushi... More

I'm sure you can all relate-finding a nice restaurant when traveling that reminds you of home.. When traveling to Fairbanks, AK, stop into Wasabi Bay Sushi. You won't be disappointed. They have a huge variety of rolls, and all of them are good. We tried the Chef's Choice Dragon and the Spider rolls, with some salmon nigiri for dessert. Delicious!
