Fresh fish dishes at Bath’s original sushi bar.

Bath’s first kaiten (conveyor belt) sushi bar is my favourite place to get a quick lunchtime snack or start a Friday night in. Grab things off the belt, or order from the extensive menu – just keep an eye on the plates mounting up as everything is so delicious you might not know when to stop.

Food and drink

Good range of Japanese and international drinks. The menu is split into hot food like chicken teriyaki and ramen noodles, which you order from the waiter, and cold dishes like fresh fish sashimi, sushi (rice) topped with fish, veggies or egg and hand rolls, which are put on the kaiten belt by the sushi chef in the middle.

Recommended dishes

Prawn tempura hand rolls are my favourite, but half the fun is just grabbing whatever comes past – this has always worked well for me apart from one encounter with some squid balls (I hate squid).

Ambience

Huge windows make the restaurant seem bigger than it is and it’s a relaxed, social place as you’re all sitting around the conveyor belt together - although there are private tables at the back.

Service

At lunch-times and Friday/Saturday night the place does get busy, but staff are friendly and have you seated and sorted as quickly as possible. Just wave them over if you want to order anything off the menu that’s not on the belt.

Location

Tucked up off the main drag in cobbled Bartlett Street, just up the road from Same Same But Different. Close to Milsom Street and the Circus.

Price advice

Dishes are colour-coded with six different prices – starting with white dishes that cost £1.50 up to yellow ones that cost £4. Bills are totted up by adding up your pile of plates.

Tables to book

Ask to sit at the conyevor belt - it's more fun and sociable than the tables at the back.
