In mid-January Kura Revolving Sushi Bar opened its first Ohio location, simply outdoors Polaris Style Place in Columbus! The Japanese chain first opened in 1977 and now boasts greater than 500 places the world over.
The Columbus retailer has been immensely well-liked because it opened, with typical wait instances round dinner topping 2-3 hours at instances.
We visited the Pittsburgh location of Kura final fall and had a enjoyable time with it. Visitors register at a small laptop on the entrance door, the place they’re given an estimated wait time.
From what we’ve seen of two places, Kura’s areas are designed fairly equally, with rows of cubicles tightly packed collectively. The cubicles seat as much as 4 individuals, and every one is fed by a sequence of conveyor belts that loop across the restaurant. A crew of cooks works furiously within the again making sushi and plating it.
Kura’s gimmick is that sushi is delivered desk facet by a unending conveyor belt.
The plates roll by in pairs, with little indicators asserting every one. In the event you’re interested by one, simply pop the plate out of the little coated holder and luxuriate in!
If it’s your first time, the server will stroll you thru the method of pricing, correctly snag plates, and order drinks, desserts, and different dishes by the display above your desk.
On the Columbus location, all sushi plates on the conveyor belt are $3.40. Every one accommodates 2-3 items, relying on the dimensions. It might probably add up shortly, particularly in the event you’re with a bunch (or have hungry teenagers like us!).
Whenever you’re finished with every plate, you slide it right into a slot beneath the conveyor belt, and it’s counted towards your whole on the display.
For an added little bit of enjoyable, drinks are delivered by robotic! They scoot across the area enjoying music and making little bulletins.
The display above your desk options enjoyable animations and dispenses toys if you hit a sure variety of plates.
You can even use it to order a selected sort of sushi or extras like dumplings, ramen, and extra. We wished to strive some dumplings and fried hen.
And on high of all of the sushi coming by, you’ll discover desserts like custard tarts and even slices of cheesecake.
Kura generally is a little overwhelming and overstimulating, nevertheless it’s actually a enjoyable expertise, particularly with a bunch. Simply count on the longer wait instances, notably round dinner and on weekends! It’d be good to examine in early, then go hit the mall, seize a drink someplace, and wait on your desk to open up.
