A plethora of sushi in an informal setting - the price is right!

If you want a variety of sushi, cheap, this is the place to go. Actually the sushi is quite good -- fresh and plentiful. It is served on a revolving conveyor belt. You can sit in either a booth or at the bar. They charge $2 per plate with good descriptions of each dish. Good place to go for an... read more

I have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised at the freshness of the sushi at this restaurant. It's one of my favorites now since you can get in and out pretty fast (as long as you're not going in restaurant rush hour). At $2 per plate, it's super easy to eat and not wonder how much the bill is going... More

OK, it IS conveyor belt sushi. But it is good conveyor belt sushi and at $2/plate, it is a great value. I only wish the tables were a little bit bigger. We can squeeze 5 of us around the table, but as the kids grow, it will be more difficult. The kids love watching the food go by and waiting... More

This wonderful sushi has many different flavors that will make your mouth water. I have been to many great sushi places in Arizona and California. But, this one stood out. That is a good thing! It is a wonderful place to take your family and friends! I will give it 5 stars!

Kula does sushi as it's supposed to be: a revolving variety of fresh sushi for a set price per plate. Therefore, Kula makes for a great business lunch - quick and delicious. A sushi connoisseur won't find too much extreme offerings, rather it will be the standard sushi fare which is okay for 99 percent of us. If you miss... More

Kula Sushi Bar IS very good for revolving mass sushi. Don't confuse the "very good" rating with how I would rate a standard sushi bar. In terms of quality and experience Kula would be a three (average) at best. But Kula is very reasonable in terms of cost and the quality of the product. I love sushi, but there are... More

My husband and I both woke up at 1:00 a.m. and were violently ill after eating lunch at Kula. It was definitely due to food poisoning and definitely due to the food at Kula.

This place is very reasonably priced - only $2 per plate - but you really do get what you pay for and the quality for most rolls is just ok. The selection is pretty good, and you can also order off the menu if you want. You may have to wait for some time if you miss a particular item... More

This place is a fun format for a restaurant. Dishes very mostly good. The bill can add up quickly if you do not keep track. We visit the area from Nevada, and been back a second time. Best experienced the first time, certainly worth a try is the lines are not too long to get seated.

Reasonable priced, average quality, even so, there is often a queue for tables. A few interesting rolls. One jarring note: something called "toro" which wasn't. Recommended for a quick sushi experience, but do not expect as high a quality as other local sushi bars. Still, you get what you pay for.
