Kura Sushi USA, Inc., is an innovative and tech interactive Japanese restaurant concept established in 2008 as a subsidiary of Kura Sushi, Inc. As pioneers of the revolving sushi concept, the Kura family of companies have improved upon the idea and developed innovative systems that combine advanced technology, premium ingredients, and affordable prices to enhance the unique revolving sushi dining experience. Since the opening of its first restaurant in Japan in 1977, Kura Corporation has grown substantially with over 500 locations across Japan, Taiwan and the United States. We pay particular attention to ingredients, taste, and preparation for all of our dishes. Our philosophy of “muten” or “nothing added” is an ongoing promise that our food is prepared using fresh, high-quality ingredients free of artificial sweeteners, seasonings, preservatives and colorings.

Revolving Sushi Bar:
The Revolving Sushi Bar is the primary belt that snakes through the dining area with plates of sushi that are protected by our patented Mr. Freshᵀᴹ ventilated sushi lid, which limits airborne exposure and has plate-tracking technology that monitors how long the item has been circulating, ensuring your food is always fresh and delicious from conveyor belt to table.
The Express Belt is positioned above the primary belt. We refer to this as a “sushi highway,” as guests can place orders using the touch panel tablet at their table and their food arrives directly to them from the kitchen. We have over 130 menu offerings, but with our Express Belt system, you’ll always be able to enjoy your favorite plates without having to wait for them to come around on the primary belt.
The Bikkura Pon Prize System is an integral part of Kura Sushi USA’s innovative and tech interactive dining experience and is comprised of a prize machine, touch panel and plate disposal slot located at every table in the restaurant that are connected via sensors. The touch panel registers the number of green and red plates dispensed into the plate disposal slot. After every five plates inserted, a short animation will play on the touch panel and after every fifteen plates inserted, a prize will be dispensed from the prize machine. We often collaborate with popular Japanese and Japanese-inspired brands to develop various prizes, or we’ll develop original Kura Sushi prizes. Prizes vary by collaboration from lanyards to chopsticks, badge reels, keycaps, acrylic chains, and more!
Kura Sushi App:
We have a Kura Sushi App that allows guests to view live wait times and join the waitlist remotely. In addition to the waitlist feature, guests can also use the app to earn rewards. For every $50 spent, guests earn a $5 coupon. Users can also access our online ordering platform for pickup or delivery.
