Mekkemon, Dolphin Port
Ranked #1 of 4,299 Restaurants in Kagoshima
Cuisines: Sushi
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 10, 2016

This is one of the best 'sushi train'-restaurants we've visited in Japan so far. Especially the preparation of the rice is way better than in most restaurants using the train concept. Besides, the dishes are both varied and plentiful. In most of the cases, they were beautifully plated too.
The waiters did an excellent job; they arranged a refill of our draft beer when we incidentally overturned one of our glasses. Thus, we were very happy to run into this place! If you like to dine in a quiet atmosphere, though, you should definitely not go here - the sushi chefs are constantly yelling Japanese phrases to each other (and maybe their customers). We thought this to be very funny, but I can imagine that some people like to eat in peace. :-)

Usually sushi train (rotating sushi plates) is cheap but not as good as regular sushi restaurants in terms of selection and freshness of fish but this one is different and much better than most of regular sushi restaurants. Fish is very fresh, selection is great and the service is also great (they pay attentions to each customer very well). Very popular place among locals as well as tourists, 30min waiting is normal at peak time. It is definitely worth waiting.

My wife and I stopped in just after opening, 11:00am, and had a great experience. The sushi was delicious and affordable. I highly recommend this place if you are in Kagoshima.

The sushi restaurant was next to the ferry terminal. I visited there at noon on weekday, but it was almost full occupancy. The restaurant was specialized for a rotating sushi, but we could order Sushi to Sushi chefs in the kitchen. I received some local fish and those were very freshness, excellent! It was obtained satisfaction with the good quality even though a rotating sushi.
