Review

Kuru Kuru Sushi provides a fast, high quality substitute to tradition sit-down Sushi restaurants with its unique conveyor belt approach. Patrons sit down at the bar that stretches the length of the restaurant and pick from sushi that travels in front of them on the conveyor belt. From an open kitchen behind the bar sushi is prepared constantly. The sushi travels past on colored plates, and each plate on average hold three roll -- the price of the sushi is denoted by the color of the plate. The cost of the meal is tallied at the end of the meal by counting the number of plates.

Sit-down Sushi restaurants typically require twenty minutes from the time you enter till the time you start eating -- partially from their order and wait for preparation mentality. They also require you to order the whole roll at one time (6 to 8 pieces). In the past I was unwilling to experiment staying with my tried and true favorites of California Roll and Spicy Tuna. However, at Kuru Kuru Sushi I find myself experimenting new things, because I can see them without having order them, plus the cost of making a mistake is minimum. In fact trying new things at Kuru Kuru Sushi has changed how I order at tradition sushi restaurants. Plus, I can eat within an hour, which makes having sushi within my one hour lunch time a possibility.

Kuru Kuru Sushi serves Nigiri-sushi, Maki-sushi, fruit, squid and seaweed salad, and miso soup. There are limited options for children, which might have a hard time seeing the conveyor belt from the bar. The most popular thing is to choose from the conveyor belt, however you can special order or get take out. They can comfortable seat up to parties of four, bigger parties will not be able to sit at the conveyor belt, and sitting so many at the bar limits conversation.

The restaurant is in one of Bellingham’s nicer buildings along the harbor, in a corner location. It is well lit very clean and the open kitchen is a nice touch especially when you consider they are preparing fresh raw food. Most for the time there are three to five sushi chefs working hard to keep the conveyor belt stocked with plates.
