Brunch is also a nice addition to your Sunday routine. At BLU Restaurant & Lounge, a main delight is the mushroom quiche. It comes with a savory sauce and more than enough onions to boot. Combine that with a nice fruit salad and you are well on your way to an enjoyable feast.
Definitely not what it used to be. And that's very disappointing. I made reservations for 7 and there wasn't even a hostess stand. I had to go to the bar and she told me I could seat myself. Lovely. I hate that it's gone downhill. It's a great location, but they just haven't taken much care of it.
The menu was very disappointing. Very few choices and they didn't seem to fit together. Almost nothing to order from appetizers even though they other reviews talked about "tapas." The waiter was awkward and took our dumpling tray while we were still eating so we couldn't use the sauces, but they were pretty pathetic tasteless sauces anyway so it wasn't much of a loss. He also took our drinks before we finished them. Overall, very disappointed. We decided not to order dinner since there were such limited options and left after appetizers and half of our drinks.
At $39 per person, the Valentine's prix fix provided a good value. Not only was the price right but the food was good as a well. The meatball lollipop appetizer was our favorite. The baked lobster tail tree was great as well. Fried coconut ice cream dessert was just okay ---won't have that again next time.
Host staff had very poor knowledge of restaurant operation. Because of bad planning had to be seated outside when the reservation had been for inside. Because of delays in seating our food order put in at 9:34 PM was returned saying the kitchen closes at 9:30 PM. After discussing with the manager (or assistant manager?) who had a very bad attitude the food order was finally accepted. No specialty cocktails (a Martini) served after 10 PM. Server was professional and polite, but overall quite poorly managed with poor focus on customer service.
We had the thai basil chicken which was really good. Our server went out of her way to make sure we were well taken care of. Would go there again.
The drunken noodles and meatball lollipops are our favorite. If you ask for the noodles to be spicy, they are just amazing. I have also come here for a company happy hour party and all their appetizers are fresh and full of flavor. It's a great place for groups and special occasions. We are going to come back for their NYE 3-course menu and stay back to dance.
Our server must have been new because she was ot very knowledgeable of the menu at all. No biggie. Food was ok. It used to be so much better. Perhaps a change in chefs or owners? Always a great spot to grab a drink at. Day or night. The view, accompanied with a nice breeze makes this place enjoyable on a warm day. Beware of cigarette smokers if you enjoy sitting outside. The City of Sugar Land hasn't banned smoking, so bear in mind if you choose to eat on the patio. When the band is there, it's even better. Hopefully the food gets back to being as good as it used to be.
Arrived on a rainy Saturday evening at 7pm. Restaurant was barren. In spite of this the hostess seated us smack-dab in the centre of the restaurant. Considering it was evening dinner hour, the music was blaring to the point we had difficulty hearing each other across our table (no, we're not old either). We asked for the music to be turned down a bit, it barely was reduced. The night had a chill in it because of the rain and wind, yet the roll doors were fully open making it occasionally uncomfortable. It was so cold even our waitress was wearing a heavy winter jacket while working! Our waitress was obviously very inexperienced and timid and could barely be heard over the music. Though she was very sweet, she clearly was not confident on what to do or when. Having waited tables all through university I had no problem with her service (and I tipped her very well as a result), since she was clearly trying. We ordered our drinks, which seemed to take a very long time considering we were the only patrons. Our drinks arrived and we ordered appetizers (chicken pot stickers). The pot stickers were excellent, however the waitress didn't solicit our entree orders when she brought the appetizer (as she should have). My wife ordered a Jack the Ripper, which was very weak. Our main meal arrived and it was hot and well presented. Again, the waitress didn't know that the appetizer dishes should have been cleared beforehand and simply placed our plates on top of our appetizer dishes. The main courses were excellent, and portions were of a good size (not too much, not too little). We ordered margaritas, which were also weak. After finishing our main, we decided to leave and our cheque arrived quickly.
Overall, the food was good, but not worth what I paid (total bill was ~$120 before tip). The staff didn't seem to be aware of the customers' needs based on the windows being open on a cold night, and the music blaring during the dinner hour. There are better restaurants,Won't return.
Thai - Fusion. If you like Thai-favorite, then it will be a great choice for you.
Valuable and delicious appetizer & entrees.
reason for 4 stars instead 5 stars is the cocktail, they can do better . You can't taste the favor at all, for mojito, you can't taste the mint at all.
There were 4 of us reserved for an early hour seat-down dinner at a best Asian American restaurant in Sugar Land, that's what we thought. Unexpectedly, there was a crowd of standing guests at the bar that kept growing larger to over 70 people. Our table was knocked over twice and was moved twice when they spilled drinks on it. We wanted to leave but it's too late to reserve for other fine dining restaurant to fit our plan. We decided to stay for their great food. The crispy fish was great, but it was small, half size of what we had, for $28.
The manager kept saying sorry to us due to the long wait and the disrespectful and bad manner crowd. Though it was nice of him to compensate us with free desert. It was fair enough!
The 3 cheese omelette's presentation was good but the cheese were all clumped up inside. I picked this restaurant among the ones that were available for the Restaurant Week lunch and the website didn't say that Blu doesn't offer it on Sundays and so we were blindsided by that trick.
It was nice and easy place to have Brunch - food was pretty good, service a bit slow but overall nice especially due to the live music that they offer.
Loved the entire experience. ...Host and server was awesome. Great transition to dance club.
The food was fair. It seemed to me to be an Americanized Asian food (Thai food specifically).
We asked for a replacement of chopsticks and had to ask for it again. Entree was served a bit late due to kitchen backed up. It was explained well so we continued chatting while waiting. My dad was allergic to mango and it was used on dessert with no listing on the menu. We caught it as it was served, so they exchanged one without mango with no additional charges. But new plate of dessert was served without spoon, so we had to ask for it. Overall, we loved the food and ambiance, but feel the service could be improved.
