Quite by accident I stopped in for 4 pm bar menu snack. It was great - taste wise, price wise and service 'wise' . . Then the Real Alaskans had a lunch there the next week, and it was great again. We got the whole meal with the chop-chop show and again I was amazed and wondered why I hadn't been there in years. But I'll be back.

We ate here on a busy Friday evening. There were no readily available tables in the main restaurant so we ate in the lounge. Our server Lynette was fabulous. So friendly and helpful. There is not much choice though if you don't eat sushi. There's just the 5 course or the 6 course meals which are all over $30 each, which was fine for us as a special treat for our first evening in Alaska. The grilled chicken was a bit dry, but the tenderloin steak was delicious. And I loved the mustard pouring sauce!

We were staying at the adjacent Clarian Suites Hotel so this was very convenient for us. The actual restaurant was fully booked and we didn't want to wait around for 45 minutes for a table for the 4 of us so we had a meal in the lounge. There isn't much choice except for the 5 course and 6 course grill meals which suited us fine. We chose the grilled chicken and the tenderloin steak. The starter soup was delicious. And the small salad was good. The main meal of the meats was served with grilled shrimp and a sautéed courgettes and steamed rice. I loved the ginger and the mustard sauces that were on offer. Our waitress Lynette was a pure delight, so helpful and friendly.

We were staying at the adjacent hotel. This was not our first choice. It was raining hard so we needed a place close by to eat. Our meal was good.

We searched on google for some Asian food and were directed to Benihana at Anchorage. If you love Japanese food and have weakness of pouring some great drinks in the evening this is your place. Lovely ambiance and charming hostesses will please you aesthetic keep suggesting what you can choose as per your taste. The menu was quite elaborate one and we went for five course dinner with an added platter of chicken teriyaki and were never disappointed. The drinks of dirty martini with dipped olives were delight .
The menu is moderately expensive but all worth it , the quantity is sufficient and you never feel they served less.
I will recommend if you are at Anchorage.
