This place is a bargain for the endless sushi you can receive! Fresh. Fast. Worth the drive down Newport!

HEY! you must be kidding me! I went to Kura because of the rating, but.. Come on!? What is that, chinese imitation sushi? Anyway arriving there and seeing the bargain price should ring the bell.. Paying 15$ for dinner and beer sounds good but I can only hope I won't die tonight. It's like going to Olive Garden to eat Italian.. LOL!
Yeah, go at Kura if you're used to shop for deli at 7eleven and if you drink Yellowtail Chardonnay on very special occasions.

Pros: A dinner is as cheap as a sushi-in-the-box at Ralph's

Cons: A dinner is as cheap as a sushi-in-the-box at Ralph's

the sushi is always fresh here! they have toro and uni at a really good price, too (except they havnt had any toro for the past few months). they also have hamachi kama (yellow tail cheek) thats really good, but its kind of small. great place to meet up with some friends for lunch or dinner. i dont recommend going there like between maybe 3 to 5 because thats when they kind of take everything down from the conveyer belt and there isnt any food on the belts (but you can still order what ever u like from the chefs).

When you have that sushi craving monkey on your back, but you can't spend your week's worth of food money in one spot - deffinetly check out Kura... The service used to be great & fun , but it has goten worse with the switching of management... The custom roles are great!!!

The whole revolving sushi bar thing is kind of cool, but both times we were there, the service was awful. The waiters took forever to bring our drinks and we had to flag them down to order more. Both times, the place was busy, but not crowded, so there was no excuse for poor service.

As you walk in you're welcomed by all the employees. The wait (if there is any) is usually not too bad. Food comes fairly quick. The main sushi rolls are placed on different colored plates (so you know how much everything costs) and set on a conveyor belt that conveniently revolves around the entire restaurant! If you do happen to order something that isn't on the belt, the wait time is usually 5 minutes, 10 tops. To top it off it's very inexpensive (considering you don't go overboard, the plates can add up). I would've given it 5 stars but the upholstery on many of the seats looks like they could be touched up. Enjoy!

Pros: Quick food, great service

Cons: Just the torn seat covers =\

This place is really fun. Just sit down and wait until something looks good, then grab it from the moving belt that goes around all the tables. The sushi isn't spectacular or anything, but I would keep coming here because it's cheap and all my friends enjoy it.

A must! Different and fun. Great for lunch but not for large groups. Try the Oyster shooters or the special rolls!

For some people (my soulmate among them) Heaven is a place where food comes past you in an endless parade, and all you have to do is reach out and take what you want. If such be the case, then Kura Sushi is heaven on earth! The way it works: they place nigirizushi, cut rolls and dessert items on color-coded plates, cover them with plastic domes, and set them on a conveyor belt which circles through the restaurant. (I timed it at 9.5 minutes for a full circuit.) If you see something that you fancy you just take it off the conveyor, remove the dome, enjoy, and set the plate aside. When you're finished they count the empty plates, price them according to color and figure up your bill accordingly. The per-plate prices range from $1.25 to $3.25. They also have 'blackboard' specials which can be made to order by the sushi chefs, and a full menu of Japanese cuisine. It's a tremendous value for the money: a couple can have a very enjoyable dinner for less than $30.00 (tip included). For my part: I love saba (mackerel) and it's one of the $1.25 items. Now that my soulmate and I know of this place - we will never, ever go back to Todai or any other all-you-can-eat sushi place again.

if you're in a rush and have a sushi craving, this is the place to go. you sit and you start picking whatever you want off the moving conveyor belt. you can also ask special requests from the chefs and they make it for you in a matter of seconds. this place is very family friendly too!
