A great neighborhood sushi spot! I especially love the lunch specials. Quite a varied menu so there is definitely something for everyone. Seems like they always have a drink special at night. Service is quite attentive.

Blue Moon is a perfect spot for family sushi. The atmosphere doesn't compare to the trendy urban sushi bars of a large city, but the food is good, exceptionally priced, and the waitstaff is friendly and attentive. Happy hour begins at 4pm; during this time, any in house sushi is discounted. Our kids love that they can draw all over the tablecloths and, at the end, receive oranges that they, of course, use the rinds to form spectacles with the accompanying toothpicks.

Blue Moon is a great neighborhood place to take your kids. Atmosphere is casual and the people that work there and own it are always super nice and accommodating.

My wife and I frequent this place often and refer to it as "Ihop sushi" because the restaurant looks ike it was an old Ihop. But don't let that fool you, this pace offers some very good sushi with a wide variety of creative special rolls at a decent price. They also always seem to be offering some 2 for 1 beer or sake special. So if your looking for good sushi, don't want to worry about a wait and aren't tring to impress anyone with a fancy atmosphere then this place is for you.

I have been to many Sushi restautants in Denver and around the US etc... and I must say that this is one of the best. You feel right at home in your jeans, shorts or whatever...service is always the same, excellent! They recognize me when I come in and always are curtious and prompt. Plus they have delivery with the same promptness and courtesy... the food is fresh and hot...
I do not need the trendy or fancy, I want the authentic, fresh and comfortable atmosphere...high prices do not make it any better...trust me!These guys also have a happy hour to go to Sushi heaven for...$1.00 per pc of Sushi!! Wine is two for 1 certain brand ofcourse, but good!

This restaurant offers Japanese sushi, Vietnamese noodles, Thai curries and Chinese stir-fry dishes. They also offer dollar sushi specials every day. This is not a fancy place but you will get good food and great service. Our waitress was very helpful to the sushi novices at the table. A friendly and relaxed place to eat good sushi.

Not at all a Sushi expert, been a while since I've been to a Sishi bar/restaurant. It was my birthday, and figured I'd try something new. I thought the food was good, Our waitress was really fantastic, she walked us through everything and helped us order. Thought it was a nice enough place. I think if I was looking for something fancy the place might not have worked, but for a relaxed time, good food, more than reasonable price, and overall good experience, this place was perfect.

Blue Moon is great. The service is always friendly, professional, and timely - I have never had a poor experience like some previous reviewers talk about. I believe they have all-day happy hour for nigiri ($1/piece), and their rolls are usually either cheap or average price. They may not have quite the variety of fish or special rolls that somewhere like Sushi Den or Hapa does, but they have very fresh, high-quality fish (buttery salmon and tuna, NO strings or chewy pieces!) and their sushi chefs are skilled at what they do. The outside may look like an IHOP, but the interior decor is pretty decent, just your typical sushi bar setup with a few tables and Japanese tapestries.

If you want somewhere fancy then sure, go ahead and spend >$100 at Sushi Den for only two people; but if you just want to have a casual dinner and eat some good sushi for half the price, go to Blue Moon!

Another review below said if you point and clearly mark your sheet, you will get what you ordered. That was not my experience on more than 20 occasions. I wrote out exactly what I wanted in clear, bold print, ask for it outloud, and point at it on the sheet. I still rarely get the appetizers I ordered, and they don't really seem to care. One time I ordered one thing, got something totally different that didn't even sound similar that I would never order...and the snotty little waitress acted like I had drowned her kitten. She wouldn't even wait our table after that, and would ask another server to do it.

I've had them come take my mostly full drink to refill it, then never bring it back...ask 5 times for them to bring it back and all 5 times they forget. I went an entire meal without a drink. They never say sorry, they just talk about you in mandarin.

Another fun time was waiting 15 minutes for someone to take my order, because the entire wait staff was ordering from a chinese place together. They practically flaunt their laziness in front of you.

That said, the sushi is cheap, the tempura is how tempura should be most of the time (lightly battered, not dipped in wads of giant pancake-like batter like most places), etc.

Update - 7-24-7, above this point is a few months old. The service has improved a lot recently. The people are friendly and seem to care that you get what you ordered in a timely manner. Last time we waited a while for our drinks and service because there was one girl waiting the entire restaurant, but she was going as fast as she could and did amazingly well considering. Upped the rating to recommended based on the value and improved service.

Pros: Cheap, decent sushi, good tempura,good decorations for an old IHOP building

Cons: Improved service, still some order glitches, location is a PITA for downtowners

Outstanding sushi, great decor (recently redone), horrible service. You will be lucky to get your appetizers at all, or possibly after the sushi. After clearly ordering something, expect the staff to look at you and talk about you as if you have wronged them for actually expecting to get what you ask for. Despite that, it's worth braving the rude/poor service to get the excellent sushi.

As we walked in, the hostess was chatting on her cell phone and got off long enough to ask if we were two for lunch and drop the menus on the table.
No one even approached our table for 15 minutes (we were the only people in the place), and another 5 to take our order.
I chose the Panang Curry with chicken, which was terrible. Very thin sauce with whole pieces of red onion and tomatoes?? wtf? I sent it back to the kitchen and ordered the Pad Thai, which was a 3 on a scale of 1 to 10.
The other meal, a lunch combination plate, was decent.
The check was dropped and not a single "thank you" was uttered.
I hadn't seen service this bad since eating at Domo.

The sushi is great. Actually its better than some of the trendier spots in town and its a buck anytime. Their drink specials make me wonder how they stay in business but their servers speak less than a lick of english making it difficult to order things that aren't ON THE MENU. Keep it simple, fill out your sushi sheet and point to what you want and you'll be more than pleased.

On one particular Sunday afternoon, my husband and I drove around town looking for a Japanese place to go to lunch. I had a huge craving for Japanese food and none of our usual place was open (Sushi Den, Sushi Tazu, Genroku Restaurant, Yoko's in downtown, etc.). It must have been a holiday because I can't remember the last time Tazu and Den were both closed.

We sat down at this restaurant and ordered our lunch. I ordered Kazu and hubby ordered Curry. My kazu turned out alright but the curry... ... It was a disaster to say the least. The real Japanese curry is slightly sweet with yellowish brown thick sauce and has carrots, onion, and potato that has been cooking in curry sauce for a long time. All of it is over rice. What they had was Cut-up fishcakes with carrots and peas, the whole thing was then mixed together with MSG and water. (Carrots and peas??????? We went to a restaurant for frozen veggies?)

My husband, who lived in Japan for a couple of years and speaks fluent Japanese, was really hungry so he ate most of it. I stared at him with disbelief. I couldn't believe he did NOT hurl.

We didn't have the courage to order their Sushi or Sashimi and we were glad that we didn't. So please if you want any sort of resemblance to Japanese food, go a block further. Kokoro has ok food. It might not be the most authentic but they are at least edible.

Pros: None. There are so many far better choices in DU area.

Cons: Not run by Japanese people and haven't the slightest clue what Japanese cooking is.

We love this restaurant! It's very casual and the staff is always friendly and happy to serve you. The sushi is consistantly fresh and prepared well. They always have specials which I recommend as well as many other items to choose from. We love the Black Dragon Roll but have never been disappointed with our other choices. The green tea is also a standout... a bit unique and woodsy but I had 4 cups so I guess I liked it!

This really was the best sushi I have had so far in Denver. I am from the east coast and used to really good sushi, and this is the closest I've come to it. It was fresh and the price was really good. High recommended.

Sushi Basho offers one of the best values on sushi in the Denver area. It's a sister restaurant to the more famous Fontana Sushi-- so it is a chain. Also it is in an old IHOP, so the ambiance isn't the best. But the prices are reasonable, the fish is fresh, and the menu extensive. Service on the one night I was there was frantic, but friendly. Try the Beef Negimaki: thinly sliced beef wrapped around scallions, served on a sizzling hot plate with a carmelized sauce.

A place of not just value food, but delicious food! Comfortable family atmosphere and service is prompt and polite. Amount of food is gigantic and sushi is a buck anytime! Just because the food is less expensive doesn't mean it can't be wonderfully good!
