Samurai Blue was an instant hit when it opened in Lawrenceville 2007 with its well-executed, traditionally rooted sushi that could swim (figuratively speaking, the fish is generally no longer alive) with anyone. With over 15 years of experience, Chef Lee has mastered various Japanese cuisines to make them his own and thrives to see his clients happy with the highest quality he can offer. We suggest trying the Samurai Blue Special roll or the Red Snapper Tempura Special roll for a transcendent experience!
