Philadelphia, PA - With countless options for sushi in Center City, it's not easy to set oneself apart from the competition; then again Bleu Sushi has achieved it. The 40-seat BYO is close to Jefferson Hospital and both office and residential buildings.
Bleu Sushi Center City Philadelphia
A sushi restaurant as well as BYOB, serving up Japanese signature rolls, with Philly-inspired names, named after various nearby colleges and universities. The fare is mouthwatering and on point, but the service was extraordinary, and owner Hendra was the most helpful guy you'll ever meet.
Chef-owner Hendra Yong, a native of Indonesia, knows how to take care of customers, everyone loves the guy. The ambiance is alluring and very city-sultry. Comfy yet classy. The wait staff was extremely professional and polite.

The ingredients are fresh; tempura ended up being crispy, as well as the ideal portion sizes: the dishes are just fantastic, particularly the kimchi fries capped with grilled chicken, kimchee along with cheese wiz. They are both sweet and cheesy instead of too spicy as typical kimchi tend to be. Their chicken was perfectly marinated. The sushi rolls came in eight pieces, cut small, together with excellent fresh fish. What they don't do is take shortcuts here — great restaurant for date night or stop in for the best happy hour specials in center city.
Tip: the lunchtime menu portions are the same as the dinner portion even but lunchtime prices. A bonus is you can order party trays available for events.
