The sushi is pretty good here, but the service is quite slow, even if it isn't busy. It was tough to get drink refills, the check.

First had to wait even thought we had reservation for 10 min but no big deal. Staff has no attitude of any kind and I like it, they just served kept people engaged or entertained. Food is of great quality.

They have a nice 241 special for lunch. They do have a dinner side, but for lunch we were just in the bar area. It was pretty crowded for almost 2 in the afternoon which speaks to something because most of the places around here are pretty empty. Nice prices. Friendly and helpful wait staff. She let us know specifically... More

This is my favorite restaurant in the Triangle area because it has a fun atmosphere and consistently amazing food. Everything on the menu is fantastic and the fish is always very fresh. You can't go wrong with buy-one-get-one-free sushi rolls. There are so many delicious ones to try. The nigiri is irresistible as well. My favorite is the white tuna.... More

When looking for great sushi and a cool vibe in Raleigh, Sushi Blues is it! I've visited this restaurant four times already and the service is always great as is the food. This is one of the only places I know that also offers patrons fried sushi - if you are into everything fried. But the options for 'real' sushi... More

This place you seriously can't go wrong with whatever you get. I tried so many different types of rolls and dishes and there wasn't one that I didn't like. The staff there was really welcoming when we told them it was our first time here. We met the nephews son and he was also extremely welcoming. The lay out is... More

Great sushi at great prices....it's tempting to sit outside but the bugs/flies will compete with you for your food....you've been warned.
