Reviewed October 9, 2013

I've been eating at Kura Sushi 3-4 times a month for the last 5 years. I went their tonight and discovered they raised the price of their plates. The increase is out of line and outrageous. The person who took my drink order tried to tell me that the price increase was justified due to the increase in the number of pieces on the plates, the plates that had 3 pieces now have 4 pieces of cut roll. Most plates remained the same despite the 50%-100% price increase. Clearly they are being told to tell the customer this by the owner. It is not justified as a customer in any sense. Where I would have have had at least 8 plates in the past, I stopped at 6 plates tonight and they actually lost money on the total amount I normally spend.

I can not justify returning to Kura Sushi and paying these increases. I would imagine they are going to lose a lot of regular customers, they have lost my business.

Great deal, with the $2.00 conveyor belt, food very fresh, good service, big TV's showing ESPN.

The place was busy around 9:00 PM on a Saturday night and I'm glad I did.

Everything is made up fresh, so you can dig in immediately, but fresher than a buffet, all dishes are well-covered.
