We'd heard great things about Blue Kudzu and decided to stop for lunch. We should have gotten a hint when we walked in and were the only customers in the place. Upon being seated, we were informed that they were offering a limited menu because...More

I took my BFF to "the Zu" for her birthday dinner. Our waiter, Jamie, was most helpful and attentive. We tried, and fell in love with, the new "buns" on the menu. I can't wait to have another shrimp and grits one, while she loved...More

My BFF treated me to a birthday celebration last night at Blue Kudzu Sake and it could not have been more delicious or more fun. First thank you for the perfect indoor temperature on a chilly evening and the soft slightly-jazzy background music selection that...More

Some things about our lunch at Blue Kudzu were quite nice- but there were some disappointments as well. Six of us came in for lunch on Saturday afternoon during the River Arts Stroll weekend. Luckily the place was not busy and we were all jazzed...More

Oh, we are so glad you thoroughly enjoyed your meal with us! In bringing on a new chef and designing a new menu there are always growing pains. Nothing makes us happier than to know that we are moving in the right direction! Kanpai!

We were excited about trying this brewery/restaurant as we had not been to a sake brewery before but love Asian food, and we are beer brewers. We ordered the 4 portion sake sampler to try the different types. We thought $16 for this was bit...More
