Nice restaurant with decent sushi rolls

Tried this restaurant in my search to find the best sushi. I think it was good but have been to others that I find to be in the very good to excellent level.

Recommended by friend who lives locally, we tried this place for early dinner. Hipstar atomosphere in young professional neighborhood near downtown Raleigh ( 10 min away from the convention center ) As the name of the restaurant suggested, Blues and jazz musics are BGM. Not "traditional" Japanese restaurant, but very casual and non-pretentious. Sever was friendly. We took 4 orders... More

I really wanted to love sushi blues but I could not. The prices are outrageous, first of all. Secondly, the chicken that I received had the worst texture I have ever experienced. I feel like the chicken was frozen and thawed and then frozen and thawed again. It was so gross. I had interesting spring rolls with chicken and cheddar... More

The service was excellent. The sushi left a lot to be desired. I don't think this is their "A" team. The sushi rolls were kind of loose, not packed well, and the presentation was more like food rapidly put together than artwork like sushi is supposed to be. Rolls were small and the rice quality was not good. Iced green... More

Aside from finding a decent parking spot, this place can't be beat for its location, price and food selection. Every day is BOGO on the rolls. We ended up getting 8 different ones. We ate them ALL! The service was quick and friendly, and the portions were normal. I hope I get a chance to go back.

Decent amount of options for vegetarians (at least for sushi), haven't tried much else. But the sushi they have is good. BOGO for sushi is great, but they'll always charge you for the more expensive roll (eg 2 rolls of the $10 roll and 2 rolls of the $6 roll brings your total to $20 at BOGO). Coke addicts beware,...

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,... More

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
