Conveyor Belt Sushi

Has this trend hit your part of the world too yet?.....This photo is from Manchester.

The little dishes of Sushi go around on a conveyor belt system in front of the diners for them to choose from.

I find it very practical...you can choose with your eyes! Next, it is much cheaper than in specialized sushi restaurants that charge even the seat you're on!Next, you can choose with your eyes....no need to bother toi remember all the names of the fishes...which would be a big bother!
They are very popular in Japan, not that cheap, but reasonable enough. And MOST of them have fresh food!
I like the way you focussed on the little covered plates!

Saw something like this on the Travel Channel on Monday. I understand the color of the plates tells the price. Haven't run into it in this neck o'the woods yet. Cool photo.

You had me at the sign....I love Sushi, so much. This hasn't happened here yet, and I'd almost love it if it weren't for my fear of embarrassing myself in front of the normal person lol ;)
GREAT photo ;)

Nice shot, it is really cool when you are seating in a sushi restaurant here and you see all the delicious dishes passing in front of you, you just take what you want, enjoy, have a nice talk, good stuff!

I like this shot very much, Ian. it`s very simple and very familiar.
This photo has a style of the 50-60s post card... How did you achieve that?
Oh, when it comes to sushi !.. I am a sushi-addict... But a very peaky one. These places..... you go for the fun, not the food
