Recently opened at the Golden Sakura, we ordered the dynamite box, some negiri sushi and tempura. The restaurant was almost full upon arrival but we received our food quickly and freshly prepared...the tempura is always good -- never too oily or greasy. This is our favourite Japanese place in Whitehorse.

We have tried several Asian food during our 3-day stay and found that Sakura is the best to recommend.

Sorry but I cannot remember what dishes I had when I was there this last summer on a trip to and from Alaska. However, it was excellent enough that I went back on the return trip and remember being very pleased with the meal.

When I have meetings in Whitehorse for the week, I usually eat at least half of my meals at Sakura Sushi. They make excellent sushi!

This is the best sushi I have had in the Yukon. The quality of the ingredients was good, the servers were friendly and I found the prices reasonable. The two cautions I have are the food took an exceptionally long time to arrive (group of six order) and that parking at lunch time can be a bother. I hear there... More

A big statement, yes, but entirely justified. The beef tataki and spicy tuna are worth a proper tonguing

The food is consistently good here, but not always the service. Do not take a table upstairs, they forget about you and you may end up in a small wood panelled less than spotless room with only two tables, where you end up "eating " dinner with another couple since you are so close and you are the only background...

The food itself is nicely presented and reasonably authentic. Portions are generous and prices are fair. The place itself is rather dark in places - fine if you want solitude or a romantic ambience , not so fine if you want to see what you are eating. The big issue is the service - do not be surprised to have... More
