Busy but excellent

Ordered take out..... which took a long time, but was worth the wait. The restaurant seemed to have only one sushi chef, which was a bit annoying. The quality of the food was excellent, fresh, and served beautifully.

The train runs it's rounds endlessly, while the chef fills the cargobay with sushi and other stuff which are made in front of you. The fish is fresh and of good quallity. To my liking the sushi is rolled a bit loosely, but the advantage of that is the rise-to-contents-ratio is very nice. Prices are mid-range, but it's worth for... More

Don't get me wrong quality food indeed, but wow is it expensive for the size and we all know that locals don't enjoy places whee the have to pay like a tourist. I've been quite a few times out of pure sushi cravings but always regret for much of a rip off it is. It also really needs a facelift... More

Sushi on a train. You sit, you grab, you stuff. You smile. Honestly; it was a nice relaxing lunch. Their spicy tuna was delicious; the salmon was lovely...pretty decent tuna. The staff was friendly and seemed to be enjoying themselves; and I mean that in a good way...very friendly vibe. The only thing I'd pick at is I'd have liked... More

I was always skeptical about sushi train places but it's quick and quite nice. I was surprised. Very limited seating though, might have to wait for a while.

My friend and I stopped in at Sushi House for a bite to eat and were delighted with the experience. The food was very good and fresh and the service was attentive even though you choose your own items from the little sushi train that circles the sushi preparation area. It was also fun to watch the expert sushi chefs... More

Fun place to eat as an electric train carries small plates of an amazing variety of right before your eyes freshly made sushi that you simply pick up off the train as it drives by. Ask for your favourites and they will gladly make it on the spot.

The sushi was fresh and delicious but the restaurant is very tiny so it takes a while to get a seat and it's quite squishy to walk around to the toilet etc.

If you want to see sushi being made and served with a twist, it is a good place. Low in price and high in value. Would love to go back when we are there next. Not a place for cozy dining.
