Sushi-Go-Round in Chinatown

Went last Saturday. It's a little place wedged between the MCI Center and the movie theaters. There's a small table seating area to the rear, but the real reason to go is the bar with the conveyerbelt. Small color-coded plates with 2 or 4 pieces of sushi slowly roll out of the kitchen, down the bar, and back again. The dishes are between $2 and $4.50 each; you can also order a la carte. You pick your dishes, stack them as you finish, and when you're done, the cashier adds up the dishes.

Nothing really outstanding, although they had an unusual California style roll with strips of salmon, tuna, and avocado on the outside that was tasty. Not as good as formal places like Kaz or Sakana, but much better than some of the $1-a-piece sushi factories like Cafe Asia. A nice little place to get a quick bite before a movie or a game at the Center. Will definitely go again.
