OK, kaiten-sushi is fast, Fast, FAST!!! Food is obviously available as soon as you sit down, even with special orders, the chefs are quick. Turn around is pretty fast, as long as you aren't with a HUGE group, you can squeeze in anywhere. Basically, kaiten-sushi is Japanese "Fast Food", of course Americans will love it and in Bellevue...kaiten-sushi is welcomed with open arms!
Sushi Maru is clean, cool, and fast. The selection at Sushi Maru is not limited to just sushi. I was sitting right in front of the chef grilling beef and whipping up fried rice and omelets. I like that the conveyor belt at Sushi Maru zig-zags through the restaurant and loops back around so there are always 2 lines coming past. The pricing is moderate and as far as sushi goes, quite affordable. There are some booths, so if you come with a group, you can sit together.
I'll have to try Sushi Maru out again!
