“Great sushi at an affordable price. No fuss sushi conveyor belt with each plate at 146 yen. The sushi is more than good for the price although it wont compare to more expensive joints. It's a nice place to stop and eat if you're in the area and just want affordable sushi. There's usually a queue but the line moves fast”

Store
“Huge selection of various items from electronics, make-up, beer, whiskey, clothing, etc etc. Has just about everything you would need (including rubber chickens) at a reasonable price. Credit cards accepted. Staff fluent in English and Chinese (and maybe other languages?). Just be careful as the aisles are very narrow due to the large amount of merchandise.”
