We travel to Syracuse often but never ate here until recently. We were more than pleasantly surprised. The fish was extremely fresh, the rolls were creative and the service was good. The bleu monkey roll in particular was fantastic.

We were about 7 for lunch on a week day. We all went for their lunch offer that was really cheap for great portions of sushi plus either miso soup or a green salad. The sushis were quite nice and the staff sympathetic. A good place for sushis in Syracuse.

The sushi was adequate here; it was nothing spectacular. The green salad was fresh and well dressed. The service was attentive.

We went there around 4pm place was empty lots of servers and chef's. Everybody on their phones I guess because there was nothing else to do. My husband order some Gyoza as appetizers they tasted like old sea food I had to spit out the first bite it was horrible. Then the noodle bowl came for my husband the broth... More

Good dinner. Decent price. Nice, patient waitress. Had a collection of dishes - spring rolls, shrimp tempura (yummmmmy!) oysters, chicken bento box, cobra roll, specialty sodas. All good.

Being in Syracuse for business, I thought I would grab a quick meal. Bleu Monkey was literally across the street from the Sheraton so I figured that might hit the spot. It did! The sushi was surprisingly good for a little town in the middle of New York state. And, in particular, the portions (nigiri) were quite generous (especially the... More

My wife had edamame and brown rice (perfect on her no fat reginen). I had a sushi combo with soup, Green tea all around. Total $20, plus tip. Great Choice for lunch. Big... More

Dinner with friends. The place smells of whiffs of chlorinated swimiming pools. The ambience is good, comfortable seating, and place was quite full, so it must be popular. Ordering was difficult, they couldn't help with which item on the menu contains what. Took forever to serve, and finally 4 of us on the same table were served separately. So one... More

I really wanted to like this place. I have gone in twice for take out and ordered two deliveries. This place does not quite cut it for their sushi at all. In fact, i frequent this place for their ramen noodle takatsu soups, crispy crab, octopus, etc. Last weekend i ordered a delivery at 3:30p.m. I was told 30-45 minutes.... More
