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.

I am a big fan of this place, the Ken roll, the rainbow roll , and I love the spicy mayo. The photo is spicy tuna , best with spicy mayo and wasabi

Have been multiple times and the service keeps getting worse. The food is ok. The chefs are nice. Not worth thr money we spent the last 2 times. The gyoza is delicious, the sushi is ok.

During my first year in college my co-workers and I enjoyed going to Sakura Blue on our lunch break and sitting at the grill. To this day Sakura Blue is on my list of restaurants to eat at while visiting Louisville. Not only is the grill fun, especially for the kids, but the taste is incredible (and affordable during lunch!)

I travel quite often for work and I enjoy eating sushi around the country. I used to live in Kentucky and there were only a couple of decent sushi places at the time over in Lexington. Sakura Blue is a gem hidden in the middle of a busy shopping center. The restaurant is small, but it feels cozy, not tight.... More

The seating is tight but the sushi is good. There is also hibachi. The tables are really close to each other but as long as everyone has bathed it's not an issue.

I eat Sushi all over in many states and I am very very picky. This place isn't all fancy and stuff but it's great sushi like I am used to back in south Florida. The sushi chef made us a special sauce out of ponzu, chili, sesame and wasabi which was wonderful, he had just finished cutting up yellow tail... More
