Like the conveyor belt concept, here the sushi comes on a train which my kids loved. Otherwise, the sushi is ok at best, we ordered one item off the train (yellow tail hand-roll......the fish was dark red....never seen yellow tail like that) and the place smelled a little odd. Very nice staff, had cold sake and was very inexpensive. If... More

This is right up the street from the Hotel Monaco, which made it very convenient for an impromptu evening meal. One of our party had never been to a rotating sushi bar, and he must have eaten seven plates' worth...would definitely recommend!

We have many great kaitensushi in Japan and also a couple in NY. We did not have a huge expectations on this place (did not look very authentic and we were right) but we were too tired to look for more. Compared with those in Japan and New York, the quality and variety were just not comparable. Pieces were small,... More

We just finished a most enjoyable Sunday lunch. Convenient location near Pioneer Square downtown. Two blocks from the MAX. We stumbled onto happy hour, open at noon on Sunday. By 1:15, the place is packed. I'd recommend planning to be there by 12:30. This is a very reasonably priced sushi house with fresh delicious varieties and pleasant chefs. My wife... More

Fresh ingredients, quite a bit selections, central location, normal sushi taste. We caught the happy hours, and very good price, $30 for two people, 11 plates and two Saporo beer. The only issue is that they may use too much mayo or something taste creamy.

Sushi Sakura was next to our hotel and our niece traveling with us had never had Sushi so we decided to check it out. I had only seen a Sushi Train on TV food shows. It was really interesting to experience. The only problem was we could not easily identify which rolls or food was going by us. I was... More

We saw the photos of this and were curious, we've had some great sushi at conveyor places like this. The prices were great, happy hour was a good deal. I wish we liked the food but it was average at best. The few rolls we tried were ok, the Gyoza and spring rolls were gross, the iced tea was tasteless.

Choose what you like from the conveyor belt. Lots of choice. Calculate cost by colour . We went there a few times.

So sometimes my goal is to see how inexpensively I can get a snack in a sit down restaurant. After a full day of sightseeing in Portland, Oregon, my feet were really killing me. I just missed the 2:30 p.m. cook's break at my favorite Portland Vietnamese restaurant, Luc Lac, where an order of tasty spring rolls (tofu, pork, shrimp,... More

The food is just not good. I've been to several conveyor belt type sushi's. I understand this is not a high end restaurant but the food is just not fresh. The sushi is not fresh and the rolls are just wet and soggy.
