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.

When I ordered chicken soup with vegetables, I was expecting actual chicken. But it was chicken broth and vegetables. Good-but should have been $3, not $7. My friend had the BOGO sushi deal which seems like a good deal, and she enjoyed both rolls.

This place has some awesome spicey sushi on the menu . Nice portions at a fair price . It can get a little noisy at times but the place is always packed . Out side seating is great when the weather permits .

My best friend and I go here very often. We love the options that are on the menu. I am not brave to try real sushi so I always order a tempura option. My favorite of all time is the Steven Tyler. I love that you can get buy one get one free sushi rolls. The service is always great.... More

The 2-for-1 isn't a bad deal as long as you realize that - 1) the free ones will be the cheapest on the menu even if you order an equal number of more expensive and cheaper choices and 2) they have to be on one bill (at least that was how it was explained to me) and 3) doesn't include... More

Okay, was up here for the weekend for some work with a friend and we were really in the mood for some sushi. Used the awesome Trip Advisor app and found this place downtown so we figured let's give it a try. We rolled in around 7 on a Saturday, found parking somewhat close (got lucky) and put our name...

My favorite sushi joint in all of Raleigh hands down! Especially if you like spicer creations. They have a non-menu dessert: brown sugar cinnamon ice cream with fried banana that is off the hook!!

The best sushi around! Very different rolls that offer the ability to try new things with the BOGO offer (dine in only).
