“Good value sushi train”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

We stumbled upon this sushi train on our second trip to Kyoto and at Y137 per dish, found it to be the best value sushi we'd tried. (In Sydney, the closest place charges AUD3 per dish, so this equated to AUD1.71 per dish).

At that price, you won't be getting fancy stuff which you might get at the Tsukiji fish market, but we were hungry and just wanted to eat. The signage is very good, and plates distinguish between sushi with wasabi, and sushi without.

There were a quite a few local Japanese who frequented this sushi train when we were there (twice on our trip), and during lunch/dinner, there was always a queue. For us when we travel, it is always reassuring to see plenty of locals choosing to eat at the same place!

“Less than average sushi- nothing to write home about”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

yes- you have the sushi on the conveyor belt- like you have in numerous other places. the fish is poor- they have it cut in trays and the quality of the fish-resting-sliced-in-a-tray is really poor. The only good thing i can say is that it was really close to our hotel and that we didn't spend there a fortune. I have to say- it is totally overpriced for what you get!!

“Poor sushi”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

We had dinner here, well, we started having dinner and walked out after having had 4 or 5 plates. It's cheap, but it's cheap and rubbish. The fish is pre cut, the rolls poorly constructed and frankly it was tasteless. If you want to eat rice then come here. If you want sushi, find somewhere else.

“Average sushi bar”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

Average quality sushi which seems like coming out of a production line. It's ok if you are hungy but not if you want to enjoy sushi. Many tourists around.

“Conveyor belt sushi with Restaurant Quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

I loved this conveyor belt sushi bar restaurant!!! The quality was just excellent. A great central location just outside Sanjo Shopping Arcade on Sanjo-dori. I ate there twice, and should have gone back more for the excellent unagi and salmon belly. You can also ask for anything from the chefs behind the counter, if it's not rotating on the belt. All plates are priced at 137 yen (US$ 1.75), and has 2 good-sized pieces of sushi or 2-4 roll slices. I was hungry, so 12 plates @ 137 yen, plus 2 beers @ 504 yen each is 2,650 yen (US$ 33.75) for a huge meal and drinks. Best food I had in Kyoto, and they will see me and my friends again. http://www.sushinomusashi.com
