The food is very good, the staff is very friendly and professional, we were seated and placed out orders in no time at all, the chef was out quickly and started cooking.

Wow. Jericho and Eden who are chefs and partners are terrific. Let Jericho make you something special at the sushi bar. Next visit I'm going to try one of Eden's Thai dishes. Highly recommend.

The hubs and I were surprised to find Wasabi gone and Sushi Blue in the same location when we went out for our anniversary dinner. A sandwich board outside said "Delicious sushi at affordable prices" and I do agree with both statements. My SC Crunch had lots of crunch, hubs' Spicy Tuna was on point, and the prices were great....

Waiter recommended the seafood spring roll and it was delicious, as were the other appetizers that we made into a meal. And all appetizers were 50% off! We would go back.

First new name is Sushi Blue. Not impressed with lunch box. Ordered 1130 when first opened and Kats chicken was dry, over cooked and no sauce.

Have had much better hibachi meals at other places. The chef didn't interact with us at all. If you like rice though, you'll love it. The amount they give you is ridiculous!!

Service needs polishing 5: dirty floor 5: sushi defiantly not the best doesn't... More

We ate here several times in Charleston. Since my SO is Japanese she generally prefers Asian food when we travel. The food and the atmosphere are good and prices are moderate. They have Japanese and Thai selections. It was never crowded and you could get in quickly without reservations.
