“Great Krispy Kreme in Tokyo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

I must say, I prefer Japan's indigeneous doughnut brand, Mr Donut, to Krispy Kreme, but this is a pretty fun instance of the American interloper. The front of the restaurant is all glass (isn't it strange that we can call a place selling nothing to eat apart from doughnuts a 'restaurant'?) so you can watch the doughnuts travelling through the frying and glazing process, along a very long metal conveyor belt.

(One note of caution - arrive near the end of the evening and you'll get to see staff washing down the conveyor belt, and that's not very pleasant viewing - just like sausages, everyone wants to eat doughnuts, but few people want to be there when they're made. Or cleared up after.)

The doughnuts are thus very fresh, and as it's in Japan, you get some extra special oddities like green tea doughnuts, although I stuck to my favourite maple glazed, that reliable Krispy Kreme standby.

“Lovely Doughnuts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2012

As we don't have Krispy Kreme in South Africa, I decided to try them. They were delicious. More so, I was curious about the long lines that I always saw there. So gave it a try early one motning when they were quieter. Enjoyed them.
