This popular Singaporean chain made conveyor-belt sushi Asia's favorite way to eat inexpensive maki, and the trend continues here thanks to these gleaming-white, futuristic-looking outlets. Small dishes of sushi rolls take a mechanical journey from the kitchen through the dining room, so you grab what you want when it passes by (your server will tally plates at the end of the meal). Basics like tamago (egg-custard), unagi (eel) and tekka-maki (tuna) rolls are perfectly fresh. A flat-screen computer at each table is available for hot orders; crisp and light tempura vegetables arrive within minutes. Other standouts include savory-sweet chicken yakitori and creamy hiyayako tofu, floating in soba sauce and dusted with fish flakes. Except for the computer’s distracting screensaver photos of distant Sakae locations, there’s not much more to the blank-slate décor. And though the staff is friendly and efficient, their poor English makes asking questions impossible.
