On Wednesday, August 31st Kura Sushi held a soft opening for its first Virginia location in Tysons Corner.
The Tysons Corner location is Kura Sushi’s 40th Kura Revolving Sushi Bar location in the United States and 1st location in the state of Virginia. The eatery offers savory, authentic Japanese dishes made with high-quality ingredients. Their philosophy and ongoing promise is to prepare food using natural, premium ingredients free of artificial sweeteners, seasonings, preservatives and colorings. The authentic Japanese dishes and innovative systems have been passed down and improved upon since their parent company opened its first restaurant in Japan in 1977.
The “Kura Experience” features a two layered conveyor belt system: Revolving Sushi Bar & Express Belt, Bikkura Pon Prize System, and Robots.
The revolving sushi bar circulates throughout the entire restaurant with various sushi plate offerings.
The tablets located at each booth and counter space allow you to pick what you want to eat from the menu of over 140 items at your leisure. The kitchen staff receives a notification when you place an order from the tablet; the kitchen staff then preps the dish(es) and sends them zipping down the top layer express belt directly to your table.
A short anime plays on the tablet after every 5 sushi plates are dispensed into the plate slot. Prizes are received after every 15 sushi plates are dispensed into the plate slot.
In a recent technology implementation, Kur-B the KuraBot delivers drink orders tableside. How this works is once our waitstaff receives a notification about a party’s drink order, they place the beverages on Kur-B and program it to deliver to the corresponding table. With the added features to the tablets, guests can place their drink orders directly on the tablet and check-out on their mobile phone, limiting their wait times for service and providing more options for how they want to experience Kura Revolving Sushi.
Kara Sushi will operate with special hours on Friday, September 2 from 2:00pm – 9:00pm.
Normal hours will begin on Saturday, September 3:
- Sunday – Thursday: 11:30am – 9:30pm
