“Very good, better than Yo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

We booked for 7pm on a Friday. When we arrived it was busy and we couldn't be seated straight away.

There's some very unique and tasty dishes here. We've always be fans of kaiten-zushi restaurants where you can pick dishes off the belt and order fresh dishes from the menu. As other reviewers have mentioned, some dishes seem to have spent a little too long on the belt. We saw one or two thin cut tuna nigiri that had got a bit 'curly'.

There were dishes here I don't think I'd seen in chains like Yo Sushi! - I really liked the seaweed 'pucks' and peanut satay sauce.

Like most of these restaurants, it's too easy to over eat with appetising looking dishes passing you every few seconds. Our bill came to £55 with drinks and probably a dozen plates. Would eat here again.

“A firm favourite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

If you can machete your way through the hoards of Bath yummy-mummies and their little Tamsins & Ruperts, this is a wonderful place for lunch. There's something reassuringly home-made about the food and the dishes that trundle around range from the sublime (celestial hand-rolls) to the vaguely eccentric (chocolate brownies). The regular staff are always rushed off their feet but unfailingly welcoming & friendly. It's getting a little pricey but they do operate a loyalty scheme which helps justify the cost. Bath has two kaiten sushi joints and this is by far the best!

“Tasty sushi occasionally inconsistent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012 via mobile

I have eaten here frequently over the past couple of years and have been pleasantly surprised by the quality and variety of the sushi on offer. Occasionally some of the conveyer belt sushi can look a bit tired but anything the chef makes fresh is excellent. By far the best sushi place in Bath .

“always perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

This place is totally brilliant, a great range and excellent quality. It is so many times better than YoSushi that I can't believe the later is still managing to run in Bath. The only thing I can think is that Yen does get very busy (lunch and dinner) and you often have to wait.
