“Fun way to eat sushi”
Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

The main draw to this place is the belt for the sushi. It is fun to watch the various rolls and sashimi go by your table. You have pretty good control of how much you spend due to the collection of plates which vary in color based on price. We always enjoy eating here.

“Over rated”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Seiing the long wait and line, I thought this would be a good place. It's unique with the floating sushi bar and the variety is good. The taste was average and nothing to write home about. The service for self serve is not worth the money. Waited for 2.5 hours when they said it would be 1. Staff was not all that appologetic and not disciplined. Forget it if you have a large party. I wouldn't consider this restaurant again.

“Great Sushi at an affordable Price”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Sushi Station is one of my favorite sushi restaurants. They have a great lunch special selection of dishes at $1.25 a plate. The selection on the special is geared to the beginner with few raw dishes. Sushi station has high quality food at reasonable prices. The atmosphere is fun with the sushi delivered from a conveyer belt surrounded by a plastic tube. Each diner has a door that they can use to select a plate. Each plate is color coded so the diner knows the price of their selection. A great quick dining experience.

“It's like the McDonalds of Sushi!”
Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

Pros: Fun dining experience, great variety

Cons: Tight seating area, can get expensive quick

My family and I came here for we wanted to experience quick sushi made fresh. To me this place is like the McDonalds of sushi for they have an assembly line of food ready for patrons to self serve.

The sushi itself was good, but I could say that I've had better elsewhere. This place is definitely fun if you haven't experienced being served food off a conveyor belt.

As far as the environment, we found it quite cramped and really loud. A great place for a quick bite to eat, questionable for a romantic evening.

“Tasty but not for social meal”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

I love this place. You get a good variety at a good price. Always fresh. But this isn't a place to go if you are looking for a liesurely social meal. They like to hustle people in and out since they have short hours. If you want a quick lunch...go for it. If you want a social meal, find a different place.
