100 times better than Sushi saki, food and service wise! The food here is delicious!! I order the hibachi chicken with fried rice every time. It comes with soup or salad and I choose the salad the ginger dressing is to die for!! Don't bother going to benihannas it's way to over priced honestly their hibachi chicken is better, no there's no show but taste wise it wins! Plus they offer coupons on their website just print them out. P.s. Don't forget the yum yum sauce for the chicken!

It was busy and buzzy when we arrived. We were on time and were seated at once. The table allocated was in a high traffic lane so we requested re-seating and this was accomplished straight away. So far, so good.....

We ordered and our house salads arrived swiftly. These would have been alright if they had not been drenched in the house ginger dressing. It was not as though there was a little too much dressing but more like the chef had poured in more, then more, then even more.

Then we waited, and waited and waited. This gave us time to inspect the decor. This was bizarre insofar as there is no discernible theme. On one side is an attempt to give the line of booths a quasi-rural feel by placing them beneath an internal roof with make-believe tiles. Now, we have been in places that continue this theme throughout. It never works of course. But here it is worse still as there is a violent contrast between this effort and the seemingly cool and modern central bar seating area around the conveyor belt sushi arena. Then there are the pictures/art on the wall that have nothing to do with anything else. Maybe the theme is tasteless themelessness?

The gyoza soup when it came was voluminous and tasty as was the teriyaki shrimp dish. The agedashi tofu lacked any finesse and it was somewhat greasy. The teriyaki steak was cooked exactly as requested (medium-rare) and the dish looked good but it was let down by over-enthusiastic use of mushrooms that came to dominate the sauce, and this is not right.

We finished with some mochi ice cream that was delicious.

The service had been pleasant but inattentive, and we were left far too long waiting for the check.

So, the ambience/decor rate poorly and the service was rather average. Given that the food was only just better than alright it seems hard to give the place a rating other than average.

We are regulars at Blue Ginger. It is our week day date night. Never disappoints. Excellent, fresh sushi in a hip spot. Staff and owners are so welcoming. It's like our neighborhood "Cheers" bar. Even the other diners interact. Luv this place!!!

This is a strip mall sushi place I usually avoid. However reading the reviews I thought to give it a try. I was suprised as it was really good. I had a sushi appetizer that was very good and a south beach roll that was outstanding.
