The exciting renovations at ricenroll restaurant are now complete. The remodel was finished in November and new kaiten sushi system is on a roll. The kaiten sushi format features a conveyor belt that moves small dishes of sushi and other menu items around the restaurant for diners to see and select. Think of it as a sushi train traveling around the restaurant.
Diners can choose a dish from the conveyor belt and also order from the menu, and the smaller portions make it easy to sample new dishes. Throughout the world, kaiten sushi is a favorite dining experience for children: where else does a train deliver dinner? It’s also a great way for newcomers to enjoy a variety of dishes—no Japanese ordering skills required.
Ricenroll’s kaiten sushi offers a more diversified menu as well. In addition to more sushi rolls and nigiri sushi, appetizers such as calamari and veggie sticks are available. Smaller servings of popular hot menu items are also offered, including udon and curry ricenbowl.
The dining area of ricenroll now features two sections: one for the kaiten sushi counters and the second with regular table settings. New lighting fixtures and a wonderful music system were also part of the remodel and these changes compliment the new format perfectly. Today, customers can anticipate a more dynamic yet comfortable family dining experience.
The response to the remodel has been very positive and many customers have been delighted to learn that ricenroll is now available for group meetings and private parties, as well as special holiday and family events. “This is a challenging time for everyone and ricenroll is proud to offer fresh and delicious food at a reasonable price in a relaxing setting,” said Joana Chong, owner, ricenroll. “We hope to welcome many Issaquah Highlands friends and neighbors during the holiday season.”
The first “conveyor belt sushi” restaurant opened in Osaka in 1958 and today, there are more than 3,000 of these fun-filled restaurants across Japan. Internationally, kaiten sushi is popular for its leisurely dining style, affordable prices and “tailored-to-fit” menu—every diner has the opportunity to choose their own favorite items.
For a group or family with different tastes, kaiten sushi is a perfect fit for everyone. For all those who love sushi and Japanese food, or who simply love great food, be sure to check out the changes and new menu items at ricenroll soon.
