Very good place

This restaurant is like a cafeteria on steroids. Fish selection isn't the greatest of sushi places I've been to but the fish is fresh, excellently prepared and brought to you on little shuttle carts on three different levels from the kitchen. To send the cart back, you press the lighted button in... read more

This was not your typical sushi train place. You order on an ipad above your seat and the sushi plate comes out to you on a conveyor and stops right in front of you. Very clever and lots of fun. Prices were incredibly reasonable and the quality was very good. There was a line but it moved very quickly.

As somebody from the UK who doesn't live in London, the idea of food being ordered on touch-screens and shooting along rails to where I sit seems like some sort of futuristic, far-off dreamworld. So, for me -- and for people like me -- this restaurant is well worth a visit for the sheer novelty value alone. Don't get me... More

Great value for lunch - quality was decent for the price. The main reason to go to this place is for the personalised sushi train, of course! English menu is available and there are limited options for those who don't eat raw fish. Great fun!

I'd say it would be great to come here just for the experience. I mean, who wouldn't want to try to order sushi from a touchscreen and have it delivered to you by conveyer. It felt really robot-like! But now, add in cheap sushi normally going for ¥108 for 2 rolls and only just a bit more for the more... More

Visited a couple of times. Fun experience with the self ordering screen and to see your sushi dashing to you from no where. Good quality sushi at very reasonable price. One of the best kaiten sushi in Tokyo. Must try.

We had a lot of difficulty finding this place, it actually took us 2 attempts over 2 days as we had no mobile Internet/Google maps. So if you are planning to come here I recommend being prepared with a good map (but maybe that was just us lol). It was totally worth the effort however. We arrived at lunch time... More

visited this sushi place after finding out about it on google. was partly attracted by the automated sushi serving system (engineer and geek here) and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the sushi in spite of the relatively budget-friendly prices. came back to singapore to find the same restaurant opened not long before i went on my trip, and...

They don't have excellent sushi, but its dishes have a good quality. It's very organized, clean and efficient. And the best part is that the prices are really good. So you can taste all the dishes!

Simply wait for a table space, and use the touchscreen to choose up to 3 plates at a time. Plates are delivered to your table space by an automated train system. Multiple languages are available including English

Neighborhood Profile
Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast, Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
