    What happened Sushi Blues? I used to love this place :( my sushi was bad, the salmon left pink puddles in my plate signaling that it had gone bad and it tasted fishy. The rice was old and hard and overall both my sushi’s tasted disgusting, I’m still having a hard time digesting. Sushi is definitely not something you want to skimp out on when it comes to quality—your clients can get sick! The salad dressing didn’t taste like anything at all. It was so disappointing… will not be returning :( sad thing too was that this was my birthday dinner, and I picked this place because of fond memories. Looks like you’re not surviving this inflation crisis, restaurant was empty too… I hope you get back on your feet before it shuts down.

    Sushi Blues was excellent! Top-notch service and incredible food. The BOGO sushi rolls are a fantastic deal. Definitely try the "Sweet Home Alabama" roll.

    Went here on Mother's Day 2024 and it was overall a really great experience! While we did have reservations, the wait time was still a bit on the long side just due to how busy things were, but the food was well worth the wait because it was absolutely delicious! Loved the very creative sushi rolls they had, all named after music and related pop culture icons. Good value too with the BOGO roll deal. Will definitely be coming back again to try more!

    The sushi was delicious, and this is now our go-to for birthday celebrations. (We always do sushi for birthdays). We especially love the Billie Holiday rolls- we would love to see a vegan tempura option. The service, however, was terrible. Even after letting another server know that we were looking for our server, it still took an excessive amount of time to get her to the table. We ordered edamame and sushi- nothing that takes very long- and we were there for just shy of two hours. This was not due to the kitchen because those guys were moving! She would disappear for long periods of time and when she would bring something to another table she would walk the other direction back inside and not check on us at all. As someone who grew up in the restaurant industry I am typically very understanding of the nature of the job. I am certain that all the servers are not as awful, but we unfortunately did not have those servers.

    Always a great experience here! The food is delicious, the service is friendly/attentive, and the atmosphere is a fun 90’s alt vibe. Our go to spot for sushi in town.
