A' Float Sushi Restaurant Review

: If you don't mind a gimmick along with your uni and hamachi, you might be amused by the voyage your sushi makes from the cutting board to your mouth at this rather unique --- and often packed --- sushi bar. The chefs load plates of nigiri and sashimi onboard hand-carved miniature boats that are then propelled down an elliptical river that encircles the chefs’ station. Patrons simply unload what looks good to them and are charged based on the number of empty plates they have at the end of the meal (plates are price-coded according to color and design). It’s a pleasant novelty and the repertoire is fairly extensive, with a variety of filled rolls, a few hot dishes like baked scallops and fish options such as albacore, salmon and ahi. Unclaimed plates are thankfully removed periodically, and prices are surprisingly low. Although we wish the quality was higher, it's nice to not wait long for food upon arrival. It's also great for kids. Mochi ice cream and banana tempura are solid desserts.
