    The sushi was good....not exceptional, everything we tried was good. The price is extremely fair for what you get though. The wait staff was incredibly attentive, especially given how crowded it was on a Saturday night. I would definitely eat there again, which is the true testament to the experience.

    I had a party if 6 and we were complimented with great food, great service and a wonderful atmosphere! Bleu sushi has a variety of creative dishes and sushi rolls so you will have a hard time choosing. Nonetheless this is definitely a little gem. They have great quality sushi for really reasonable prices. My party and I thouroughly enjoyed our visit and will be back !! Where else can you find such an awesome sushi place for a special event? It's even Byob!!

    We meet up with our two adult sons for Japanese food following my sons' attendance at the Forest Theater. The location was ideal and the write ups were great. We were not disappointed. We were personally greeted by the owner and chef and he became part of our experience there, being informed about the food we were eating and his philosophy of nothing but fresh foods with dishes that vary the textures. My Age Tofu was perfectly and lightly fried in a light sauce and presented simply and beautifully. The sushi choices offered both standard and creative versions using seasonal ingredients and exotic items like oysters, and the Japanese hot rice bowl with tuna was stellar in taste and texture (competes with the Korean version for sure!

    It was difficult to enjoy the food due to the incredibly loud atmosphere, although the sushi was pretty good. I might want to try it again on a week night rather than a weekend to compare.

    This quaint BYOB sushi restaurant provides exceptional service, and the owner/manager was very receptive to our needs. The sushi was out of this world, and we will certainly be back to enjoy another night out. Highly recommended!

    Great food in this understated venue. Tastefully decorated, but could use some acoustic panels or something to remove the echo. There was a large group in the restaurant with some wine-fueled screaming girls. Aside from that, the food was great, service was extremely attentive. The owner is very involved with his customers and truly cares about their satisfaction. One thing to note is that since PA has liquor/wine stores and doesn't allow others to carry liquor or wine, the nearest wine shop is a bit more than a comfortable distance away at 12th and Chestnut, so come prepared or be annoyed that you have to make a 15-20 minute round trip walk! We'll be back (to dine in and for take out/delivery), and with friends!

    We so enjoyed every aspect of our dining experience at Bleu Sushi. From the moment we walked in, greeted by the owner, to when we walked out completely satisfied - we loved it! The food was innovative and delicious. The menu had just enough variety. The service was attentive, joyful and enthusiastic. Being there for the first time, we asked for recommendations from the owner and our server and really enjoyed every suggestion. We will definitely return.

    Chef Hendra made our dining experience exceptional. He introduced himself to my husband and me, as well as the other tables around us. He made sure that we were happy with everything, and asked if we needed anything. We decided to sample a few appetizers: Korean sesame chicken wings, gyoza, and 2 spring rolls. All were delicious, especially the gyoza. Our miso soup and salads were wonderful as well. I got the only 2 rolls on the menu that did not include fish, and my husband had chicken teriyaki. Our meals were fresh, delicious, and came out in good time. When we are back in Philly, we will definitely come back to visit Chef Hendra.

    Went with a friend on a Groupon for dinner. I made a reservation on OpenTable just to be safe, and I was glad I did - all the seats and the bar were occupied on Friday at 6:30. The prices for food were very reasonable compared to some other Japanese restaurants around the area, and I appreciated the attentive service. We ordered an appetizer, 1 regular roll, 2 specialty rolls, and mochi ice cream dessert, all for ~$40. We were next to a couple loud tables so we had to shout a bit to talk (I don't know if this is normal for this spot). The small hiccup with service was the server forgetting our dessert, but when he remembered he gave us an extra rice pudding to make up for it. I'll be back!

    This is the best sushi restaurant I have ever been to in Philadelphia. The place seems relatively new (I don't remember it being there, at least not in this location) but they are running on all cylinders. Absolutely delicious food, up and down the menu (try the Sushi & Sashimi Combination if you're unsure - I loved it!). The decor and feel of the place is great, very cool, very relaxed. I was there towards the end of lunch and it was busy without feeling cramped or hectic. Great service too, everyone was extremely friendly. Just an overall awesome experience.
