The service was excellent. The edamame was good, the salmon was excellent, the tuna could have been better

This little restaraunt nestled in Glenwood South is a good find. The outdoor seating is large and creative. The suchi was good and the service was attentive. They had heaters outside for cooler days and they had several TVs for watching games. The bartender was good. I will definitely go back to this place.

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

We bought a Groupon for a discount here, so decided to try it out for dinner. My family all LOVE Sushi (like would eat it 3 meals per day if they could!) They said they REALLY loved the sushi here. They said it was some of the best sushi they have had. I am not a sushi fan, but they... 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
