The food was good and the service was prompt, and the hostess didn't mind that we were 10 minutes late for our reservation. However, the combination of very close tables and dim lighting made the restaurant feel like a noisy night club. Other sushi restaurants in the area have the same quality food with much more pleasant ambiance, so I don't think I will go here again.

Loud, terrible music selection (a radio station with commercials!), but really good service and quick and easy. Good location. BYO! Wings and sushi were good. Almost all their specialty rolls have spicy tuna or spicy crab so we didn’t get many.

Very good execution and exceptional service. The owner took a moment to say hi, ask how things were, and engage in a meaningful way that simply does not happen anymore. You would be hard pressed to find an owner/leadership team that is more involved in the employee and customer experience. Nice job Blue Sushi...

The food is consistently outstanding, which is why we recently opted to take our sushi-connoisseur parents for dinner when they visited us from out of town. Not only was the food amazing as always, but the owner made a point to come to our table and teach us about sushi and even gifted us some of his prized unfiltered sake! If you want an authentic experience in Philly, it has to be Bleu!

Very much enjoyed our first visit last Saturday, a family gathering for a birthday. We were greeted by the owner, who took great pride in explaining the menu and new items (which we tried and found outstanding). Noise level was fine, even though the place had a "live" atmosphere among the guests. Prompt, efficient service. Excellent variety, satisfying the vegan and the sushi lovers among us. A great evening of good food.

Bleu Sushi ALWAYS goes above and beyond with their service and hospitality!! We have never had a sub par dining experience!! The food is fresh and delicious too!! It was my birthday and they truly made my celebration special. My boyfriend and I used to live in the neighborhood but we move to Fairmount about 3 years ago and it’s still the only sushi we eat in all of Philadelphia!! 💗

Excellent service, the owner checked on us personally and actually followed up after to invite us back. One star off solely for the noise and crowd which really were indicative of the popularity not the establishments fault. otherwise a great sushi place.

BEST SUSHI IN TOWN. Impeccably fresh fish, huge menu of creative and delicious rolls. The shumai literally melt in your mouth - order more than one order bc they go down too easy! The Locust roll had the entire table literally freaking out over how good it was. New York roll was fantastic as well. Not one thing ordered was disappointing. On a whim we ordered the sea urchin special - Fantastic!! Best I’ve ever ever had. Service was kind, attentive and just plain awesome. Can’t wait to return.

We sought out Bleu after a friend recommended the place. One of our friends was down from the New England area and loves sushi so we brought them to Bleu. We were not disappointed in our choice. Everyone was friendly, there were generous portions for the price, sushi was fresh and delicious, the owner even made his way over to ask about our meal. Very impressed over all and will definitely return to this little hidden gem.

I went to Bleu Sushi for a special birthday dinner with reservations for 8pm on Saturday 12/8. Once I arrived the place was so crowded that I couldn’t even get in the door. I learned that all the people waiting also had reservations but were not being taken care of. The restaurant did not honor any of our reservations. They told me I’d have to wait for at least an hour. After waiting for a bit outside in the freezing cold, I decided to go to another restaurant. Absolutely ridiculous how poor the operation and management of this restaurant is! Just based off how they treated us, I would not recommend!

Have you ever walked in a place and totally felt at home???
This is how we felt at Bleu Sushi. The owner Hendra, his daughter Vanessa and his cousin/ General Manager Fandy made us feel like we were at a family reunion (minus the creepy uncles). Ok, nice goes so far I get it but that along with great sushi , it makes for one hell of a restaurant. We have tried soooo many sushi places in the city, we now
say we saved the best for last!!

Bleu Sushi was a wonderful discovery within walking distance of the Kimmel Center. The owner was very attentive, and offered free edimome and dessert, after our waiter mistakenly told us we could still order from the special priced early dinner menu at 6pm. Our Philadelphia-based daughter said it was the best sushi she has had so far in Philly.

My husband and I had a great first experience here. EVERY staff member was extremely friendly and helpful and seemed like they all worked as a team! The dining area was clear and well decorated. The food was delicious and fresh. Even the manager approached our table while we were finishing up and was extremely hospitable. The restaurant is BYOB which we did not know, but we always enjoy bringing the alcohol we prefer! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone that likes Japanese/Sushi!
