The sushi quality is OK and it's cheap so if you're looking for a different restaurant experience, than this is a good option if you're in Shibuya.
The way it works is that you sit down at a bar-counter facing three layers of tracks with a touch screen above your head. You place the orders on the touch screen and wait for your sushi to arrive via the track. Once received, you hit a button to return the tray. There are no people involved what-so-ever. The chefs are in some room not visible to the guests. The touch screens are in multiple languages so it's easy for everyone to figure out.
I really enjoyed the novelty of watching the sushi fly-by on the tracks while I waited for my own food to arrive. Felt like I was in the future.

Equipped with high tech systems, you get your perfect dinner at this restaurant by conveyor belts. The restaurant serves an amazing range of tasty sushi and desserts at unbelievably affordable prices. If you are new to Japan and are craving a true Japanese sushi train then this is the restaurant to visit. You also have a chance to have a go at several specials available. If you are a foreigner don’t worry about language as English is the language of business here. The restaurant is very clean and very pleasant to spend an evening.

This is no doubt a fun place to visit--high tech and new. From a local's point of view though, quality of sushi is only so-so to poor. Fish pieces are flesh but very tiny and thin. Rice is too vinegary and has a distinctive feel of machine made. Selection is limited, too. It's just a cheap sushi shop with fun new things to try. I'd probably never go back there.

There is no better way to spend an evening in Tokyo than to wander around Shibuya and wind up here for dinner. The conveyor belt delivery system is a blast. Tasty sushi, and cheap (I went twice, tough to spend more than ¥1500 p.p.) Lines are not as long as they look.

Try some of the specials, you will see fish that you never see at home. Also make sure to try something with Japanese mayonnaise, which was new to me (and is delicious).

Amazing range of cheap sushi. Including dessert. English is no problem. Clean and pleasant. If you're looking to experience a proper Japanese Sushi Train then this is definitely an excellent example.
