Kura Revolving Sushi Bar is coming to Cherry Hill NJ, in the popular Marketplace at Garden State Park complex on Route 70.  The innovative sushi restaurant is planned for a unit directly next to the Philadelphia Eagles Pro Shop…. in front of Wegmans.

If you’ve ever seen those viral conveyor belt sushi restaurant videos on social media and wondered “why don’t they have those in the United states”…  well coming soon you’ll be able to try this in Cherry Hill!

This news is completely new information and 42Freeway is the first to report on it, so I don’t have a ton of details and I definitely do not know when they will be opening.

The information of their Cherry Hill signing comes from the Garden State Park leasing brochures, which were recently updated to show Kura Revolving Sushi Bar as “Coming Soon”. I’ve learned from Kura representatives that they are hoping for a Fall 2024 opening.

If you are unfamiliar with this innovative sushi concept, the restaurant dining booths and counters are positioned alongside a long continuous conveyor belt where a variety of fresh sushi platters and other foods items are placed by the chefs.

As each plate slowly moves by your table, you can decide if it’s something you’re interested in… and just take it right off the conveyor belt!

To keep the food fresh and safe, each plate has a clear dome covering which Kura calls “Mr Fresh”!

This design makes can make for a very fast serving model as you’re not waiting for a server to take your sushi order, and for it to be prepared and delivered…  you just keep an eye on the conveyor belt and take what grabs your attention!

Kura also utilizes server robots in their restaurants to bring drinks and other items to your table.

So you’re likely wondering how you then pay for your sushi that you’ve randomly pulled off the conveyor?

Well honestly I’ve never been to a location but I did watch an excellent video they have on YouTube (which I linked below).

Each of the plates are coded with a sushi type and price identifier. Each table has a small slot for you to slide your plate in to which returns it back to the kitchen.

During that process of sending the plate back through the slot, the identifier is read by the computer system and your bill is charged accordingly!

Each booth also includes a dedicated touch screen for fun animations, games and also your bill.

For every fifth plate returned back to the kitchen, a fun animation will play on the individual table screen.

On the return of every 15th plate, a plastic ball container is dispensed from a holder above the screen… the ball includes a small prize!

While the revolving sushi bar is clearly the attention getter. they are much more than that, offering soups and noodles, Fried rice, dumplings, cora crispy fries., a variety of tempuras. an even cold size such as edamame, sashimi
