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. The sushi was poor quality for a sushi restaurant, dry stale taste (leftover). Ben to Box did not have rice which is odd. Had better at Ko Cha in West Ashley and they are... More

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.

First the server had a strange attitude! The the salad , well one piece of cabbage had actually changed colors and the lettuce was wilted!! We decided to leave as we could not trust the food after the salad. The waiter then proceeded to holler and be a smarty outside , then we holster back we could not trust the... More
