So a new kaiten sushi place opened up in Irvine and my friend and I went to check it out. I’m generally not a fan of kaiten sushi purely because I feel it’s mass produced but this conveyor belt sushi place really surprised me. The decor is hip and trendy, the fish is fresh and flavorful. They also have bottomless vegetable tempura for $7.99, if you like tempura that is. The sushi plates run up to $4/plate for now and you get good sized pieces of fish for that. Large bottles of Japanese beer go for $5/bottle which is really reasonable. I especially like how they have your fusion ‘rolls’ as well as traditional fish like hamachi, maguro, toro and saba. There definitely is something for everyone. Service is a little hit and miss, although they definitely aim to please, but having said that, they’ve only been open a short while so they’re still ironing out the kinks. So far, I’m really pleased with this place and am truly tickled that they are so close to me. I’m definitely coming back again for another run very soon!
