Last year Blue Nami had a late night happy hour with a small menu of half price rolls. I guess the recession is still in full swing because the cheap rolls menu is now available all day. We didn’t know that and rolled in around 10 pm, but we could have gone earlier.
This one’s going to be short and sweet: we ate a lot of rolls and I don’t remember what they were. We were very tired after a long drive.
We rolled into town late, too late to make it to another local sushi place, so this was suggested.
Service was very attentive and quite good. Multiple people looking after us, bringing our food, checking on refills, asking how things are going. I was very happy with the service.
The rolls, while all different, like the rainbow roll, shooting star, jack’s special and oh, yes, as well as several others, began to taste the same, because they were all drizzled with the same sweet teriyaki and spicy mayo sauce. That was the downside of the sushi. I really have to think about it to pick out the flavors of the green onion, or cashew, or lemon of the individual rolls. In the end, the oh yes roll stood out because it had the least of the teriyaki spicy mayo sauce.
The prices were dead cheap. Seven rolls for under $50, including tea, miso soup and some fountain drinks.
The atmosphere of the late night happy hour was also pleasant. The lights go down, the music turns up. The dark wood of the bars and tables is elegant, dappled with candles and fairy lights in the branches of the decorative barewood tree at the entrance. It soon fills up with young people mostly, happy to have a place to go in Roseville at the ungodly late hours of 10 pm or later. And they were dressed up and looking nice.
Sounds good to me.
