Kuru Kuru Sushi
Here in Hawai‘i the popularity of conveyer belt sushi is flying off the tracks. And one of the favorites amongst locals is Kuru Kuru Sushi, a grab-and-enjoy concept eatery that brings affordable sushi to your fingertips.
Pronounced koo-roo koo-roo, Kuru Kuru Sushi literally translates to conveyer belt sushi in Japanese. Waikiki Parc’s Ryan F. is a regular and recommends the laid-back, casual atmosphere of Kuru Kuru for those looking for a budget-friendly option to get their raw-fish fill. If you haven’t enjoyed conveyer belt sushi before, here the color of the plate marks the price of your dish. And while there is typically more than enough sushi to go around (and around, and around) if you can’t find what you want, the nearest server can help.
One of your group not into the raw fish rage? Kuru Kuru Sushi offers a selection of cooked dishes including noodles, miso soup and tempura. While you won’t have to wait to put in your order here, you’ll use that time waiting to be seated. Both locations --the first and original location is still in Aiea and a second recently opened in Kahala Mall – typically have a school of fish fiends waiting for their next fix.
