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

Worst sushi ever. Yes they suck you in with the buy one get one, but the quality was awful! They simply doubled the price of their specialty rolls so you think you are saving money but in this case you do not get what you pay for. Our rolls had no flavor, were 90% rice and 10% fish. No presentation,... More

We always enjoy our meal here. Best vegetarian sushi selection in town. Very good miso soup and tempura too.

There were 10 of us at Sushi Blues tonight and the waitress informed us that we wouldn't be able to split the checks. We didn't think much of it because we were celebrating our friends birthday. It turns out not being able to have separate checks means the customers have way less control over the outcome of the bill. Basically... More

Best sushi place I've found in the Triangle after six years here. They always have buy one get one for dining in, and most importantly for me they have several delicious vegetarian sushi rolls. Cool theme, atmosphere, and location too.

I have been a regular at sushi blues for a couple of years now. To the point where it became a game for one of the servers to guess which of my go to rolls I was going to order this time. I have gone at lunch and dined solo or in the evening with friends and family. The service... More
