It's time to grow, Sushi Blues.

I find sushi blues a really great dilemma. The food is very good, the wait staff can vary to super friendly, to not so friendly but that can always improve. My main and only issue with this place is that it is too small for how popular it has become. The sushi deal buy one get one free is great,... read more

I went to Sushi Blues last week before a play downtown. It was super tasty and the rolls were buy one get one free!! Not sure if they always do that deal, but either way find out when they do and go!!

We went here for my friends birthday and it was a party of about 17. We were told at the beginning that we wouldn't be allowed to split the sushi bill and if someone in our party bought a less expensive roll we would have to pay the difference. None of us realized this rule before coming but didn't wanna... More

I would have given them 5 stars across the board, but the music was so loud, you couldn't hear your dining companions. The food is awesome, though! I had a couple of specialty rolls and found them to be delicious. My husband ordered some sort of stir fry that he said was really good, too. Our waitress, whose name I... More

If the sushi wasn't buy one get one free, it wouldn't have been worth what I paid. I had a Marilyn Monroe and a Bob Marley. The Monroe was pretty good, but the Marley just didn't work too well. In both cases, the rice felt a bit off somehow, but I couldn't place why. If I go back, I'd prob... More

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!
