I saw this place on TV a while back and ever since then I’ve wanted to try it. It’s a Kaitensushi place (conveyor-belt sushi), inside of soramachi and we got there right when the place opened at 11am. However, there was already a long line ahead of us (maybe 100 people?)… amazing how many people lined up before it even opened (The line was still long even after we finished eating…). However, Kaitensushi has a pretty fast turn-around time so we only waited about 40 mins and then got a seat.
This kaitensushi restaurant is originally from Hokkaido, where it’s famous for getting amazingly fresh and high quality fish with good portions so it’s easy to see why people in Tokyo are lining up to eat at this Tokyo location. I must say the cost performance is high and the service was good as well. It’s nice to have such a lively environment at a kaitensushi place where the sushi chefs cut the freshest fish of the day right in front of you, prepare it and then bring it directly to your table. This place also serves hamburg sushi, french fries, fruits, and desserts so non-sushi eaters can dine with you as well. Overall, I wouldn’t mind coming back if there wasn’t such a long line!
