This Conveyor Belt Sushi Bar Is The Only Way You’ll Want To Do Dinner

Walking into Kura Revolving Sushi in Columbus kind of feels like you’ve just landed in the most epic, tastiest sci-fi flick you could imagine – but guess what? It’s all real, and oh boy, is it fantastic.

From the moment you’re seated, a robot rolls up to serve your drinks. Yep, a real-life robot! And just when you think it can’t get any cooler, a conveyor belt loaded with every kind of sushi you could dream of starts its parade right in front of you. Welcome to the dining revolution, where the future shakes hands with tradition, and it’s a party you don’t want to miss.

How It All Happens

At Kura Sushi, your culinary journey combines innovation with a human touch. Friendly, attentive staff ensure your adventure through this sushi wonderland is smooth sailing. Here’s the lowdown on how this culinary symphony orchestrates itself.

The touchscreen at your table puts you in control, from learning about your food to ordering items not on the conveyor belt. It’s a cheat code for instant gratification.

The Sushi Conveyor Belt

Each table is positioned with easy access to the mesmerizing conveyor belts that deliver a continuous stream of sushi, nigiri, cucumber salad, and so much more, each nestled on small plates under a clear plastic cloche. Solo diners get front-row seats directly facing the conveyor belt, ensuring no one misses out on the parade of flavors.

Choosing Your Delight

When a dish catches your eye, all you have to do is reach out and grab the plate from the belt. The cloche, designed to pop open when you lift the plate from the conveyor, takes a little getting used to, but by your second or third plate, you’ll have the hang of it. No sushi traffic jams here—just smooth sailing.

Beyond the Belt

Craving something that you haven’t seen on the conveyor? Tap the touchscreen menu at your booth for hot dishes like french fries or ramen, which arrive via the express belt. This digital menu also lets you order desserts that aren’t on the bottom conveyor belt.

Dining here is also an interactive game. Slotting a finished plate into the table’s disposal chute unlocks entertainment, turning your meal into a playful quest. It’s perfect for shaking up date night or family dinners, or having just having a blast with friends. I went with my bestie for a Galentine’s Day celebration and we had such a good time.

You Get What You Pay For

In a world crying out for sustainability, Kura’s plate counting system reduces food waste, making dining here a part of a movement that values our planet as much as palate-pleasing dishes.

We had no leftovers and left feeling perfectly stuffed without having to feel bad about wasting anything. It was honestly the best thing ever and I kind of feel like every restaurant should be served conveyor belt-style.
