The flavors were just not right. I had some stir fried veggies that were way too salty and came with a tiny portion of rice. I got 2 veggie sushi rolls that were just mushy and lacked any fresh taste. Miso soup was fine.

My husband and I went here for dinner because some friends recommended it. They have a lot of unique menu items as well as the standard stuff. The service was great, we sat inside, and the atmosphere was relaxing and fun. All of the sushi rolls are BOGO-so reasonable price/value. I would definitely recommend it.

This is one of our favorite sushi places in Raleigh. We ordered take-out recently and was informed that the BOGO is no longer available for take-out orders. We ordered anyway and it turned out to be much more expensive than I remembered.... But - the food was really good and it was done pretty quickly.

This restaurant used to be very good. I always schedule appointments in the building around lunchtime so I can have some sushi before I leave downtown. Granted, I hadn't been here in about a year before this week but things have really changed. I showed up right after they opened and I was the first patron. They never had more... More

Tried this place out for the first time and the sushi was great! Atmosphere was really nice along with the service. I recommend it if you like sushi and be sure to try the wolf pack roll!

Known locally for their daily buy one get one free offers. The sushi is fresh and they have a wide variety. I always opt for the sushi, but my dinner companions have ordered from their other menu. Portion sizes are pretty good, it's in a great location, and they have ample seating outside to enjoy the great North Carolina weather.... More

Huge selection of maki, and not all are such great ideas. But the sushi is fresh, well done, and the helpings are good. Great location, and the blues theme works. Maybe not the place for sushi snobs, but perfectly fine for a casual dinner.

We were here because nothing else was attainable on Glenwood on a warm Saturday night. Atmosphere is cool for a beer joint with their music legends posters maybe not so much for a sushi joint. We sat at the bar and the bartender was spectacular. Pretty, professional and friendly. The sushi was probably the worst I have ever had anywhere.... More

We ordered the salmon teriyaki, and we found a caterpillar laying down on our veggies. The Bogo deal is okay but their sushi quality is not great.

Well, one thing is for sure, Raleigh knows how to do sushi! It seems like every street I turn down I run into a sushi restaurant. With all of the choices I could see why it would be hard choosing which sushi place to go to so I recommend you try Sushi Blues Cafe! Not only is it downtown Raleigh's... More
