Sushi is warm – After visiting most of the Sushi places in the area, Sushi Land was a rude awakening. The service was fine, but the conveyor belt was stuffed with plates that were warm and discolored.
We went on a Saturday night and the place was packed, which I won't ever understand. At one point, my dad glanced over and with enthusiasm commented that the chef over the counter was making sushi with eel. As I looked, however, we realized that he was making sushi with brown avocado that looked like eel to a certain extent.
Yes, the prices are cheap, but so is the food. I would much rather spend more and get good sushi. Take your money elsewhere. I will definitely be sticking to Blue C or Sushi Connections.
Never Again – We love sushi places, and are not terribly picky - but when we stare at empty/available seats for 15 minutes, while the staff ignores us, that's it. Last time, we came during the dinner rush, and put our name down on the list. Waited patiently, but eventually checked and yep, they skipped over us! Then couldn't get our drinks, had no salmon on the belt, had to ask 3 times for our check. Come on - with the proliferation of conveyor belt sushi places, they better shape up. We won't be back.
Yummy and fun – My husband and I love sushi so we decided to try out this restaurant a few months ago, and we're glad we did. We've been back a few times now. The sushi is good. It's not as good as a fancier sit-down Japanese restaurant, but still good. It's a fun atmosphere. You come in and are seated at a bar-type arrangement. The sushi (and other food) is brought out on a conveyor-belt type contraption and you get to pick which dishes you want as they go by. There's 2-3 pieces of sushi on each plate. I like being able to try out dishes like this. If I don't like it, I'm not stuck with a plate full of it that cost over $10 for. I just grab something else and try it. The price goes by the color of the plate the food is on. Most dishes are $1 - $2. My husband and I can pig out and when we're done we only end up paying $25-$30, including tip. Very affordable.
Better than bellevue sushi land – Good place for a quick bite, but not as fancy or delicious as other traditional sushi places in the area.
Rude staff, below average "sushi" – Hey - if you are looking for some below average sushi and the chance to interact with rude staff members, this is the place to go!
With so many other choices for sushi, I wonder why anyone would ever go here...
cheap and nice – love the salmon sushi, seared salmon. the udon is pretty good too. Go here almost every week to have my sushi fix.
cheaper than blue C, both in price and quality. – When we arrived there was no sign saying "please wait to be seated" so we headed over to one of 3 empty booths since the single seats along the conveyor belt wre full. The waitress stopped us and said the booths were for parties of 3 or more and we would have to put our names on the list. She then handed us the list and walked away. After waiting 5-10 minutes a waiter walked towards us, waved, and pointed to some open chairs. Ok...
The sushi was not the best, even for conveyor belt standards. I just have isue with any place that puts canned tuna in a roll. Especially with krab (with a K) and cucumber and then wraps the roll in egg. Tasted like a bad tuna sandwich. The soft shell crab roll I could not swallow, it ended up in my napkin, and I LOVE soft shell crab rolls. Suprisingly, the toro was ok, but the unagi made us gag. The only bright side was the place was CHEAP, from $1 - $3 per plate. The quality & creativity of the sushi was also cheap. Edamame was good, but how do you screw that up? No one ever came by to check on us, and we had to attempt to flag one of the sushi "chefs" down to ask to get our bill. $16 for enough sushi to fill two people up was nice, but the nausea later that night was not. I won't go back. Blue C isn't that good, but it is still better than this place.
