  • "When we ordered margarita,no wine glass available..food is too costly..better go somewhere ..dance floor was too boring :("
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Great place to celebrate and dine. The dessert was delicious "
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "This restaurant has a very nice ambiance, great versatile food options and classy atmosphere. They also had a live band playing that perfectly played various types of music, switching back and forth between romantic Jazz and current pop songs throughout our Mother's Day Brunch. I will definitely be going back!"

  • "What a disappointment. Last year was a special menu. Thought the same for this year based on flyer advertising, but was just the same old weekly brunch menu. Nothing special. Complimentary mimosa was all orange juice. Asked for glass of champagne and it was flat and tasted awful. Much better for dinner. "

  • "Great place to have happy hour right after work: no long lines, easy parking, and awesome seating options. The menus are very interesting and they offer wine tasting to help you decide on your order. No pressure from the servers at the end of the meal. And it's a good spot to meet up with friends and watch the game. Great atmosphere also."

  • "My husband and I took our 80 yr old friend here for Easter brunch for the 1st time and loved the place! Soft jazz band never too loud. Crab meat eggs benedict was delicious! Complementary mimosas or Bloody Mary! Definitely will return!"

  • "Want to say, "Thank You" for the entertainment, service, food quality on Easter" Met co-workers for Easter Brunch and we thoroughly enjoyed it. I plan on coming back. The only thing none of us were really happy about are the drink prices. Way over priced for the mimosa's. We were charged 9.00 per mimosa! There are other places that do a weekend brunch with .99 mimosa's and unfortunately that would have to be the reason we do not come back to Blu for weekend brunch. Also, we wanted to order other menu items at 1:30 - 2:00 and not able to. "

  • "I was trying to find a spot for our family if four for Easter, but did not want to break the bank. As it stands, Blu was delicious, affordable, and the kids enjoyed the ambience. It was a pleasant surprise."

  • "Loved sitting outside on the patio. Menu was good and made it difficult to decide. Everything we ordered was delicious - Appetizers, entree's and dessert. Loved the meatball lollipops and bacon wrapped shrimp for appetizers. Pad Thai, Drunken Noodles, Seared Tuna and Green Coconut Curry were all outstanding entrees. Molten chocolate cake, mango and sticky rice and creme brulee for dessert were also excellent. Service was very good but waiter was not able to make many recommendations as he was new, but since everything was good it didn't really matter. Will definitely come here again."

  • "The Thai omelette was very very tasty. I'll have to go back for that alone. Also, the live music was a nice topping to a nice day out on the patio."

  • "This restaurant is really beautiful! The walls have a gorgeous texture & color. The bar is made out of a stone illuminated with lights. The food is just fabulous! The service is very good and the staff is very helpful in explaining all details of the menu. I really enjoyed the crispy fish. The batter was very light and crispy glazed with a sauce that's just unbelievable. The green curry chicken had a kick that was bursting with flavors. The Hong Kong fried rice was very authentic and reminded me of my trip to China. For dessert, we had the molten chocolate cake and crème brulee. Both desserts were just amazing! We will be back to try their Sunday Brunch next time."

  • "This place is really nice! It is great to have drinks & eat, I made a reservation and after running about 10 mins late (we were looking for parking) the hostess called to make sure we still wanted to keep our reservation! I really appreciated that & she sat us right away. Now to the food - amazing! The calamari was GREAT, drinks NICE, and the ambiance quite nice! We generally go with my husbands cousin and his wife, so it's like a small evening getaway with great people, great eats, & awesome drinks! Definitely recommend & Jeff our waiter was awesome!!!"

  • "Disappointed went there and was presented with a happy hour menu on Sunday. Stated that happy Hour started at 4pm and when I attempted to order happy hour I was told that I could not.... Well why would you provide the menu with that information printed on it. False Advertisement very disappointed..... When asked they stated that It was during football and they would not honor it even though they are still using the menu football has been over for a while so there is no excuse for it to still be in circulation if its not valid. My suggestion stop using the menu and stop advertising deals you don't honor. Rating may have been better if it was not for that issue."

  • "We had a wonderful time and would love to come back again ."

  • "Food was fabulous. Very comparable in food quality to Roy's ( another fusion restaurant). Every bite just lit up the taste buds. A must restaurant in Sugar Land....."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The Red Snapper was over cooked to the point that it lost all tenderness and flavor. It was so thickly breaded that it was difficult to cut. The duck was over cooked and dry. The attempt to disguise this poor presentation with a spicy Thai sauce was not successful. The Asian Mussel dish featured many broken shells and the same exact sauce as the duck dish, which implied lack of chef versatility. The service: Unacceptable especially was the presentation of the bill BEFORE DESSERT WAS SERVED! And the, during dessert, the waiter walked by the table and lifted the bill from where it lay on the table, examined it, then PROPPED IT UP VERTICALLY LIKE A BILLBOARD on the table! We had not yet finished our desserts, and felt this behavior was rude."

  • "Desert came before the appetizer and the entree on valentines day. We were rushed out of the restaurant because it was about to turn into a night club on valentines day at 10:30? Waiter wasn't very friendly... You would expect a better situation on a valentines day. It's one day in a year... Very poor service."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "There is nothing worse than going out to a restaurant and seeing old menus. Actually I can think of a couple things but nonetheless, you gets your hopes up for a menu item since no one made you aware prior that this was the case and then after ordering you get "sorry, we no longer have that." Why is it still on the menu? Poor management. This happened 3 times in one dinner, pork belly entree, white port by the glass and a pumpkin trifle. It's one thing to be 86'd, it's another to be discontinued. UPDATE YOUR MENUS!! Food is delicious, service is only great with Jessica, management is poor, ambiance is gorgeous."

  • "Great food and great service. Definitely a special gem in the Sugarland area."

  • "Although the restaurant was TOTALLY empty on 26 Dec when we went, we had a lovely evening. It was "happy hour," so there were generous food & drink discounts. All the food items we had were delicious & very promptly served. Great value. My wife & I were very confused as to why it was so empty. The food was not as good as Perry's but the price was a fraction of the cost of Perry's. I'd be happy to return. We had great service & an excellent meal."

  • "The staff made me feel as though I was in a very expensive restaurant, but the prices were reasonable The atmosphere was pleasant and the live music was excellent"

  • "Kind of a unique restaurant - lounge setting. We had anticipated more separation for a special occasion, but it turned out acceptable and ambience was good. They were not real busy, service was excellent and noise level OK. Do not know how it would be when more crowded. However, the food we had was extremely good! We enjoy spicy dishes, so I had the High Flame Shrimp and Scallops while my wife had the custom selection of Scallops with Thai Basil Chili Sauce. Both were of very good presentation, nice heat and absolutely scrumptious. For dessert we shared an Apple-Pecan Cobbler which also had nice presentation and was very good; highly recommend."
    Dined on 9/6/2013
  • "Food was very good. Service was friendly and quick. Just don't plan on having a quiet meal on Sunday evening. The restaurant has a guest DJ on Sunday evenings and it was so loud we could not have a conversation across the table."
    Dined on 9/1/2013
  • "It's convenient to reserve via OT. Overall was very good, but there is room for improvement. Main dishes are great with diverse ethnic taste. Cocktails could be better mixed. Appetizer portions were way too little, even just for tasting."
    Dined on 8/22/2013
  • "We have been here 30+ times and while the food is always delicious, there isn't another server there that holds a candle to Jessica. If you reserve for dinner, you must ask for her."

  • "Everything I ate was super flavorful, including dessert. And the $12 lunch menu is awesome for almost any budget. I recommend it."

  • "Better as a lounge /club than a restaurant. We waited for a long time for a waitress. Finally, the bartender introduced herself as our waitress and made it known she wasn't happy doing it. She also could not understand the concept of a pre-purchased multi-course meal, and it took her a couple tries and assistance to get our receipt correct"
    Dined on 5/24/2013
  • "Food as always, was phenomenal. Service was poor. Last time we went for brunch we had asked for the edamame dumplings even though they are typically not available for brunch and the chef accommodated us. This time we asked again and the server didn't even ask the kitchen, he just said no. Took 8 minutes for cucumber lemonade to arrive. Check was dropped before we even ordered dessert which is insulting. Server was only at the table to take the order and check on main course, otherwise, he did not exist. Next time we will ask for our regular server."

  • "Was looking for a Confortable place to eat. Despite reservation made - even thru open table No points added - they sat us 15 mins later than those who walked in and Waitress ,didn't come till 10 mins ,after we were seated. Food was not that great, table was @ open area, and was cold breeze from outside. Unable to get confortable thru the meal."

  • "It was great; however, they did not have our reservation that we made through Open Table. Fortunately, that wasn't a problem on the evening that we dined."

  • "Overall good. We may go back. The positive was the food was quite good. The negative on this occasion was we ordered the mussels appetizer, which were very good, but about a third of them were empty. We brought this to our waiter's attention and all he came back with was the kitchen stating that "A lot of them fall out of the shell into the bowl". Well, we obviously already looked for them in the bowl and they weren't there. That is why we brought it to his attention. In the end nothing was done to satisfy us for the missing mussels we paid for. So for that I marked service as fair instead of very good."

  • "My girlfriend and I went here to use my Travelzoo voucher. I had the duck entree. It was ok. Nothing delicious or noteworthy. She had the the red snapper. It was quite good! We both enjoyed the potstickers as an appetizer. Those were very good to. The menu was not very impressive."

  • "Love their short ribs....fall off the bone ribs....great flavor. I get this dish every time I visit! My friends like it because it is quiet."

  • "BLU features a menu heavy with creative takes on Asian Fusion dishes. I had the Five Spice Braised Duck and the portion was generous and the spice level was just right! The ambiance has a nice I door/outdoor feel and the restaurant turns night club when the sun sets."

  • "Went there for father's day brunch. They serve exactly the same thing they have on any sunday brunch. Nothing special at all. We sat there for about 20 minutes without any service at all. We were on the verge of leaving when somebody asked if we were being served and of course we were not. Food was mediocre at best. We could have whipped that up at home."
