Conveyor belt sushi concept coming to Doraville

If you want to experience sushi served up in a nontraditional way, take note of Kula Revolving Sushi Bar. The concept combines elements of dim sum with automation by bringing sushi to diners via a conveyor belt that runs through the restaurant. This type of sushi restaurant is known as kaiten-zushi, meaning "rotation sushi."

Kula Revolving Sushi will open at 6035 Peachtree Road, in the Super H Mart complex near Interstate 285, in Doraville. Doors at the 150-seat restaurant will open quietly in mid-July with a grand opening expected in late July, said general manager Christian Luna. The restaurant will operate daily, serving lunch and dinner.

This is the first Georgia location for the California-based chain that also has three units in Texas, with four more planned in the Lone Star State.

What exactly can you expect at Kula? Plates of nigiri and rolls placed on a conveyor belt will pass by your table. Simply grab what you like. To ensure freshness, explained Luna, a microchip is attached to each plate, which alerts its computerized system to automatically dispose of plates after a certain time.
