The sushi is on point out here. Fresh and fast every time. Don't listen to these bouji sushi critics, this is the place to be if you like sushi. There is no need to be scared of this location, there are scarier places in the world. You will not regret coming here.

There weren't many people when we went and according to yelp it was one of the best places to go. There was a very fishy smell inside the restaurant that wasn't a good smell kinda like rotting fish. The sushi depending on what it was was good. I got the bento and was happy. Half of our party enjoyed it... More

When we came in, it's 8:30 pm, and no one was in the restaurant. The waitress kindly served us the free soup immediatly. Which was delicious. I ordered the shrimp noodle and crunch roll, and other seafood roll. The staff was courteously. And the food and drink were all amazing!

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.

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
