    Certainly not the best sushi I've had, but hits the spot for a reasonable price.

    I came here for a "light mid-afternoon snack" with my cousin and my fiance (which ended up into a $100+ feast). We came at an off time so there was no wait. Pretty standard when it comes to conveyer belt sushi, although I will say that the quality and quantity of the fish was more reasonable than expected for the price.

    They had a wide selection of sushi, ranging from more Americanized rolls to toro/salmon belly to blue shrimp (the veins are literally blue!).

    Overall had a positive experience. The bill definitely ends up adding up pretty quickly, especially since we consistently went for the most expensive plate, but I thought it was worth the visit. I can see myself coming back!

    Came here a year ago when it first opened and had a great experience. Just went last night and it has majorly gone downhill. The pieces were small, the quality of the fish much worse and the sushi was falling apart and or sitting there for a long time. The worst part was the saba(makeral) that I had tasted a little funny (not fresh) but I thought it was just me. Went home later and my partner and I both felt super ill. I felt dizzy and light headed and sick. We didn't eat anything else so it must have been this place.

    It was not busy when we went at 6:45 or 7 on a Sunday but still they've lost my patronage! The other sushi boat place was packed so go there instead!

    Hovering somewhere between supermarket sushi and "real" sushi bars, conveyor belt sushi joints have their time and place.  In Japantown, at Izumi Kaiten Sushi (IKS), that time is generally just before or after a film at The Kabuki.  

    In olden days I'd frequent Isobune (RIP), the original, where little boats of sushi sailed past.  I knew it wasn't fine cuisine but it satisfied, was quick, and the little boat concept had charm.  

    There's no little boats at IKS.  Sushi and related offerings truck past on colored plates under plastic protective lids.  It's still quick and satisfying though if seeking charm, head elsewhere.  

    The place does brisk business and everything I sampled was fresh.  If you're paranoid though, do as the folks to my right did:  place your order directly with the chef and your food will be prepared to order and delivered to you not by conveyor.  

    Alternatively, do like those to my left did, grabbing anything and everything that looked at all enticing. They were practically walled off by the array of lids and plates boxing them in.  

    Carefully watching what I grabbed off the conveyor (plate colors indicate price) I got out of here full and happy for under $20.  Portion sizes are large and some of the the rolls, being particularly large, do the heavy lifting.  In SF, $20 is a decent meal price.    

    Even without the charm of little sushi boats as delivery vehicles this place works for me.  Were it not in Japantown I'd not seek it out but there, as a solo diner, pre or post show?  It works just fine.  I might be operating on a bit of nostalgia but with the Kabuki's all-day-$6 pricing (Tuesdays) conveyor belt sushi (from IKS) could easily slip back into being a regular thing.

    We were about 30 minutes early for our movie, we decided to grab a quick bite before we headed in. We were just 2, they sat us immediately at the bar... we left in 17 minutes !! Even the staff was like "is everything okay?" ... "YES EVERYTHING WAS DELICIOUS, we just have a movie to catch"
    We come to this place every time we are in the neighborhood, the fish is fresh & there are so many options available!

    We have been here on a weekday and the options isn't as much because they don't want to waste food & we totally understand!! but the weekends they even have poke and all kinds of options available.
