ABOUT1If you are looking for sushi in Gilbert, Arizona, Blue Wasabi Sushi and Martini Bar is the area’s most unique sushi destination. Launched in 2004 to rave reviews, the restaurant itself has a minimalist design featuring plush banquettes, a hand crafted granite bar and a spectacular light wall creating a bold palette of color, along with a sense of modern simplicity. Combined with signature sushi and fabulous cocktails, Blue Wasabi is the premiere spot in the valley for hip, contemporary dining.

At Blue Wasabi, sushi chefs and bartenders work alongside each other in an innovative setting that provides an ideal environment in which to eat, drink and people watch. Blue Wasabi’s servers are friendly and attentive, and it’s not unusual for them to go table-to-table, introducing people to each other. On the menu are traditional and new age sushi rolls, with favorite selections having names such as Kiss My Bass,Marilyn Monroll, and PITA (Pain in the Ass), and over twenty signature martinis like the Wango Mango and the Strawberry Blonde add to the experience.

It’s not just the names that make our menu special, though. The innovative cuisine is presented as an edible art form that explores new ideas and creatively combines common and exotic ingredients. Blue Wasabi also offers boutique wines by the glass, premium sake and our signature “blue” wasabi, all of which makes for a unique and truly unforgettable dining experience.
