We had been dying to check out the revolving sushi bar, Kura, and finally did so, adding ourselves to the waitlist as we wandered around the Korean and Japanese stores that make up Carrollton Town Center. It was so worth the wait! We’re already ready to go back and cannot recommend the interactive moving sushi spot enough!
Updated March 2022
Kura Sushi was founded in 1977 in Sakai City, Japan, and fast forward 39 years and many locations later, the first Texas spot opened in Plano. There are now two more in Dallas: Carrollton and Frisco!
HOW IT WORKS
Every booth in the dining room sits next to the conveyor belt that wraps around the whole restaurant. Once seated, you’ll be within reaching distance of the small plates, all labeled with the sushi or meal placed inside the bubble. As each plate comes towards you, you can decide if you want to grab it or pass….kind of like Hungry Hungry Hippos meets Fogo De Chao! It's one of the most fun sushi restaurants!
The food is really good! The concept allows you to try a whole range of items from sushi rolls to hand rolls to sushi sashimi and beyond. And because of technology used, the restaurant ensures you’re always eating fresh fish!
BEYOND SUSHI DISHES
You can order appetizers, hot dishes, or desserts on the screen above, with a second, much faster conveyor belt shooting your items out to you when ready. Definitely order at least the sesame or mocha dessert to see it in action!
Each plate was only $2.95 regardless of what it contained. Once your plate is empty, toss it down this contraption, and your screen above counts how many plates you ordered.
The whole concept was so fun, so add it to your list asap! Make sure to download their app and add yourself to the virtual queue, so you don't wait for two hours once you arrive but go straight to your seat!
