It’s been a great nine years for Blue Wasabi in Scottsdale, and we thank you all for your support over the years. Ongoing challenges with the center, including limitations on signage and visibility have lead us to the difficult decision to close our Hilton Village doors after six years at our location on Scottsdale Road.
Though we’re saddened to have to say goodbye, the best of both Blue Wasabi teams are excited to focus all of our energies on continuing to provide the unique, high-quality sushi experience that we’ve worked so hard to create in the Valley at our Gilbert location.
We can’t express enough how grateful we are to have gained and kept such a loyal customer base at our Hilton Village location, and hope to see each and every one of you out at Blue Wasabi Gilbert in SanTan Village.
Blue Wasabi Gilbert is located at 2080 E. Williams Field Road in SanTan Village and is open from noon-10PM on Sunday, 4PM-10PM Monday thru Thursday and noon-11PM on Saturday.
Join us Tuesday – Saturday from 4PM-6PM for the same great happy hour with smokin’ deals on your favorite food and drinks. Check out our Gilbert happy hour menu here.
We’re actively looking for a premier location in Scottsdale or Arcadia for the next Blue Wasabi- so keep an eye out for updates!
Thank you, Scottsdale – for your loyalty and support over the years.
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and we know you’re looking for the perfect way to spend the evening.
The “I Heart You” roll (spicy crab, cream cheese, and mango – wrapped in soy paper, crusted with red tempura bits and drizzled with a sweet soy glaze – yum) will be making its annual appearance on our menus this February 14th. To sweeten the deal, we’ll pick up dessert when you order any two Blue Wasabi specialty martinis – the “Ace of Hearts” cake makes its sweet return!
If you haven’t tried it before, trust us. This is one you don’t want to miss. It’s a chocolate ganache cake to die for, and it just happens to be perfect for two.
Head on out to either Blue Wasabi location this Valentine’s Day for these specials – in Gilbert from 6PM to close, or Scottsdale from 6:30PM to close – for a sweet evening!
Looking for a happy hour jaunt? As always, we’ll be serving up your daily dose starting at 4PM in Gilbert and 4:30PM in Scottsdale.

The BEST, Most AMAZING, PRETTIEST, seems like everywhere you look someone is using this HUGE Adjective to describe something. Upon closer inspection you typically find out – its really not that special. Notice I said “typically”. Believe me when I tell you, there is noting TYPICAL about “The Worlds Spiciest Sushi Roll” – at Blue Wasabi Sushi & Martini Bar.
The real HOT
I love spicy food, spicy chicken wings, spicy sauce, spicy soup – pasta, ribs – so for me, the natural next step is sushi. Only I didn’t want to create something that was “kind of” hot so we went “all in”. We created what we are calling “The Worlds Spiciest Sushi Roll” and let me tell you IN NO UNCERTAIN TERMS – this bad boy is HOT! If you like spicy food, we not only want you to try it, we want you to NAME IT!
Take a look below at HOW the World’s Spiciest Sushi Roll is created.
So, that is the World’s Spiciest Sushi Roll. Come on in to Blue Wasabi Sushi & Martini Bar and try it – that is, if you dare. Once you experience the World’s Spiciest Sushi Roll, help us give it a proper name – it deserves one, don’t ya think? Drop us your name suggestions over on our Facebook page, can’t wait to hear your ideas!
Do you like Vodka? Vodka is an alcoholic spirit of Russian origin made by distillation of rye, wheat, or potatoes. But that does not mean all Vodka comes from Russia. One of my favorite Vodka’s isn’t imported from Russia, it’s made right here in the good old USA – Glendale, Arizona to be exact. Yes – Glendale, Arizona.
It’s called Arroyo Vodka. Arroyo is the first vodka distillery in the Phoenix area. The distillery, in Glendale, is located in the Historic Sugar Beet Factory.
I’m a big fan of supporting other locally owned businesses and after tasting Arroyo Vodka, I knew we needed to create a signature martini using Arroyo Vodka.
I had the pleasure of sitting down with Morgan Klemp of Arroyo Vodka. In the short video below we discuss the origins of Arroyo Vodka and what makes it so special. What better way to celebrate this impeccably smooth and easy to drink Arizona Vodka, than to create a signature Martini. We are calling it the Arroyo Vodka Arizona Martini
If you like vodka martinis you will love the Arroyo Vodka Arizona Martini. Served with local olives from Queen Creek Olive Mill, this Martini is not to be missed. Come on by your favorite Blue Wasabi Sushi & Martini Bar location and ask for the Arroyo Vodka Arizona Martini.

We’ll see you soon sushi lovers!
The radio. Television. Print. Everywhere you look you will likely hear of something called “ladies night”. For years bars, restaurants and nightclubs alike have catered to the needs of the ladies. Across the country, Ladies Night typically features deals for – who else – the ladies! Buy 1 Get One FREE – IF you are a lady. 10% off – IF you are a lady. No cover – IF you are a Lady. It’s a great deal! – IF you are a Lady.
But what if you are not a Lady?
What if you are a Man? What are we supposed to do? Everywhere we look the ladies are being catered to but not us? That doesn’t seem right. The ladies get discount drinks, but we don’t? The ladies get in FREE, but we don’t?
Well at Blue Wasabi Sushi & Martini Bar we think it’s about time that we fellas had our own night. A night when WE can be catered to. A night with food, just for us. A night when the drinks are poured just for us. A night that we can call our own.
Introducing Men’s Night at Blue Wasabi Sushi & Martini Bar. Starting June 20th 2012, I, Jim Moran, the owner of Blue Wasabi Sushi & Martini Bar hereby proclaim Wednesday to be MEN’S NIGHT! And at Men’s Night we shall be the bearers of discounts and specials. The Men’s Night menu is below
We hope to see you at Men’s Night – finally, we have our own night.
