After opening last October Sushi Revolution has been a favorite spot of ours to grab some tasty rolls, gyoza, miso soup, or whatever. Lately we've made it an at least every other week stop with a couple of our co-workers. The staff are very welcoming and helpful and the sushi just keeps rolling by. Yesterday it was busier than I've ever seen the place. We actually had to wait a bit before being seated. Even after that enough people came in that they opened up their third side (the place is kinda' peninsula shaped with two sides always open) that included a separate conveyor and booths. Best part is nothing about their quality slid but, to the contrary, the more people pulling plates from the belt meant the more fresh stuff had to be put out.
Here's a photo of the splendid busyness:
I think they're still offering 10% off their sushi as well. Have other folks tried Sushi Revolution? What'd you think?

|The day I went, there was a guy with a couple of kids finishing up their lunch when we came in and then a couple came in halfway through our lunch. Maybe this is why the sushi wasn't that great, it was really slow. But it was decent, and pretty good if you chose the right thing. I did get one thing that I just couldn't eat. It was a thick slice of undercooked tempura potato that was soggy from sitting under the lid that keeps the food covered. But they didn't charge me for it and I understand that tempura anything might not work under those lids (and tempura potato really never works in general).
But I love the concept. Sushi Boat in Lacey was my favorite place while I lived in Olympia. It's nice to be able to eat in less than 10 minutes if you really have to. Or if your blood sugar plummets and you get cranky and you need something immediately, you can just sit down and start eating. It's inexpensive also, if you can stop yourself from trying everything.
I was happy to have my first ever female sushi chef! I'm glad to see they're getting more business. And although their location is pretty crappy and inconvenient, I'll definitely be going back.

|Yea, going about a half hour before noon on a weekday has worked really well for us. They're busy enough that everything's fresh and if you come from 56th St. it's just a right turn to get in there.
I know what you mean about the tempura stuff. I like the tempura battered peppers but they are often luke warm or room temp. Maybe they'll be able to come up with a better way to keep those warm. Flip side is you can usually ask the wait staff anytime to make you something fresh to order. We've done that with gyoza and that way you get it as hot/fresh as you like.

|We went there about a month ago.
Its a fun event alright. Great for picky eaters as you don't need to commit to a huge entre.
Also, its fun to look for the mystery food which appears occassionally (blowfish?) and challenge yourself.
Although I have another home on the web I thought it might be nice to lead by example a bit and put this blog system up to the test myself.
So far, so good... Funny how I build web tools for other people that are far better than the one's I have setup over on KFnet.
