Not being from the area and wanting to have Japanese style food we gave this location a try. Great service, good portions, and great food quality. Its what you expect from this type restaurant. Stop in and give them a try. We did not have any sushi.

Great apps, and very good sushi. Wonderful server, very personable. Would stop again. In a great shopping plaza with Trader Joe's and Nordstrom. If shopping, a great lunch stop.

Prices raised, sushxxi pieces smaller, no more Thursday specials, bland flavor, slow service. Khis place was my number-one sushi place. I'm not pleased with the changes. They do offer Wi-Fi but you'll have to ask for the password.

This is a regular stop for a sushi fix for my husband and me but tonight the menu was different and the prices were raised. My 2 favorite rolls were gone and nothing similar to replace them. The front desk/hostess was alone and clearly needed help as there were a bunch of people waiting. Many were complaining about their wait.... More

They must have recently changed ownership. I have been here several times in the past and it has been very good service. The last 2 times it has been horrible. The service is very slow and chaotic. The most recent visit the Habachi cook was great as usual, which is why I tipped him, but the 2 waiters they had... More

Yelp said they had GF options. When I confirmed before ordering the waiter looked at me like I had three heads. I left. No room for error.

I ordered three different dishes. Two vegetarian rolls and an appetizer. When I got my food, the appetizer was covered in crab meat. I didn't ask, which is my mistake and I admitted to that, but the menu didn't indicate that meat was served with the dish. I told the server I didn't eat meat and since the menu didn't... More

My wife & I were in Louisville for a mini vacation. We had a terrible craving for sushi so we went to Sakura Blue. We loved it! The service was great & the food was awesome!

This restaurant wasn't where I first tried sushi but where I learned I loved it. I have tried many things on the menu but my hands down favorite is the tuna tartare. I usually get that plus a miso soup and a salad and I am stuffed.
