This is our Go To sushi place when we are in Wellington. The food is always fresh and yummy, the service is quick and warm, and I don't have to tell you how fun the sushi belt is :) There are great items on the menu that you can order as well, I love their small portioned udon which has... More

The excitement of watching all the items go past you is always a highlight of dining here. Yummy sushi, options to order off a menu and fantastic service. Caters to vegans.

Went here based on TA review for lunch. Standard sushi train, but top quality sushi and sashimi. Plates vary in cost up to $5 - I spent about $45 for a very big lunch with Orion beer. Great beer selection too, all imported. Sushi was great, sashimi was amazingly and surprisingly good. Good selection of interesting fish that most 'chain'... More

Really good variety of tradition and contemporary sushi and yum cha type bites over and above the usual mundane sushi you get from random sushi bars in Wellington. Very fresh. Very delicious. Excellent prices. Will definitely return.

First tried sushi train in Sydney and been hooked ever since. Discovered Wellington had one and had to go there while in town for family function. First time I went by myself, had mum with me this time, her first ride on the sushi train. The fact I returned says it all really. Delicious, tasty and fresh food right in... More

I regularly have sushi here! I think the food is fresher than other restuarants in Wellington. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. Besides those yummy sushi, they also offer ramen, rice bowl, and sashimi (which is very fresh and tasty). You definitely need to avoice lunch time; there will be no seats for you!

With so many delicious offerings in and around Wellington I feel that you could find better sushi offerings. It was busy but most of the items on the train kept circling and circling. They did not replenish the items taken quickly at all. The restaurant itself is nothing exceptional and the items on the menu are not all on the... More

Love this place, already went there many times. It is a conveyor belt sushi, so you can just get in and start eating. Authentic japanese staff and food, very friendly. They have crazy fish I have not seen before ever like aburi red and golden snapper, sea urchin, some special squid, lotus root chips and other stuff. It was so... More

My first visit to a shush train and I was disappointed it was delicious. All the seafood dishes were my favourite but overall everything was yummy

This is the first time I had done the a sushi train and this place was great. Loads to choose from & conveyor didn't move too fast. Helpful waitress explained everything we needed to know & took orders for hot items that could be ordered separately. Very nice food - fresh and reasonably priced.
