This was a great place to begin with and some of the best Sushi, Sashimi, Sashimi in rolls and soups in town and the new owners (Now called Ocean Blue) have carried the tradition and added extensively to the menu. The new owner is keeping the quality and tradition and new menu items. Only the name is now Ocean Blue.... More

We like sushi and sashimi a lot, when we moved to Safety Harbor did not expect to find the great quality and true Japanese flavor nearby until we tried this restaurant. We eat at least 4 times a month from here and we get always a great customer service and the best sushi around Tampa bay. Recommend for everyone.

We were looking for a new place to go, and decided to give it a try based on Trip Advisor. (It is now called Ocean Blue if you have trouble finding it) Saw a good friend as we entered and she raved about this restaurant. Several people mentioned the Super Crunchy roll in their reviews, and while it was very... More

This place is a little hole in the wall with the tastiest sushi in clearwater. The chefs are legit Japanese sushi masters :) Charlie the owner knows his stuff. And they have a good range. Prices aren't the cheapest but pretty reasonable. Try the Scott roll and the Super Crunchy! They taste like more...

We went for dinner last night, having the Pork Gyoza's, Chicken Katsu and Emperor Steak Teriyaki. The onion soup starter that comes with the entree's was fantastic, but we absolutely loved our main entree's and can't wait to go back. The Sushi bar also looks very cool so we will be going back for lunch to sample that also!

Maybe we have better sushi restaurants in Tampa that have spoiled me, but I was not impressed with this place. Don't get me wrong, It was not bad, but to me it was average at best. A friend and I wanted sushi before going to a concert, so we thought we we would try this place based on the reviews... More

Fresh sushi that never disappoints. Nice atmosphere. The owner Charlie is a hoot. There are only 2 places for really good sushi in this area - this one and AKI Sushi on Tampa Rd in Oldsmar (the best in my opinion). Try here though - you'll like it.

Sushi is my favorite food by far. I have tried many other sushi places in the area and although most are pretty decent I cannot find another one that surpasses this place. The Super Crunchy Roll is one of the best! The staff is always friendly, courteous, and prompt. You will not be disappointed if you choose to dine here.
