Service: Easy-going and friendly
Facilities and Equipment: Overall very clean. Very clean wasroom
Strong points: Very good value for many local fish and seafood! Better than average conveyor belt sushi! Entirely non-smoking!
Usually I’m not so keen on kaiten sushi/回転すし/Conveyor belt sushi, but when you happen to enjoy food in a Prefecture and City famed for their fish and seaood I’m willing to make a concession, with a few conditions attached that is!
Mori Mori Sushi is a big sushi restaurant chain in Japan, with no less than 15 establishments allowing them to make extensive use of computerized service.
It is a busy place, but you do not have to sit elbow to elbow with other customers as the “belts” also run along the booth-style table seatings!
The table we were offered was the epitome of sushi high tech!
You can choose your morsels in two different manners:
via the computer digital screen or by picking plates running along on belts!
Now I must admit that this system should appeal to non-Japanese speaking tourists as you can switch to English, Korean, Chinese and Mandarin (Taiwan) Chinese!
The lid covered plates running along is a show by itself!
Plenty of simple instructions:
Do not ride the belts (that’s for silly kids!)!
Mind your sleeves!
Do not return a plate onto the belt!
You are free to collect leftovers to take back home! (no waste!)
Pay your bill to the staff at your table (no need to search for the register. You can pay by card at your table!)!
Refrain from drinking alcohol if you are driving!
No pets allowed!
Do not block large trays on the belt (such large trays are private oreders, anyway!)!
The belt move slowly enough for you to look and pick up an individual plate!
These trays on the train are private orders that will be delivered at only one table. Don’t try to block it!
Don’t worry, there are plenty of cartes on hands for the analogs like me to have a good look at the offereings!
have a good look at the sets, too!
Gunkans/ships and Rolls!
There is also a special additional daily menu! You might need some help there!
Our first set, all different shrimps!
Our second set!
We had just disembarked from a 4-hour train trip and were very hungry at this first lunch so we ordered some extra!
Sea urchin and salmon roe!
Natto and cuttle fish/squid!
Negitoro and quail eggs!
Our last order came by train!
When you call for your bills the staff will pass a computer reader along them and voila, your bill will be ready!
Note that the plates are of different colors indicating a pre-ordained price including drinks. So do not worry if you are served empty colored plates with your drinks!
Tea is free and you can mix it and serve it yourself thanks to a hot water tap at your table!
