Conveyor belt dining has finally expanded to the far westside, with Kaizen Revolving Sushi now open for lunch and dinner right on the border with Summerlin and importing a Chinatown experience to Lake Mead Boulevard.
An offshoot of Spring Mountain Road’s Konbea Belt Sushi, the 1,903-square-foot, family friendly restaurant moved into the Summerlin Gateway Plaza retail center, a short walk from the under construction Garden Grill.
Diners sit at booths while color-coded plates travel past their table ready to be picked up. Dishes are delivered at five different price points, ranging from $2.45 for the orange-colored plates to $4.95 for creations served on a black-colored platter.
To keep a careful eye on freshness, each serving also adds a “RFID (Radio Frequency identification)” tag to the base of the plate, monitoring the amount of time the food has been out of the kitchen.
A large menu of custom items is also available, prepared once a customer makes an order and then delivered to the seat on the back of a model 12-wheel truck.
Options include appetizers of crispy soft shell crab or spicy tuna poke, plus soups, salads, ramen, larger baked tempura and specialty rolls, sashimi, and entrees of broiled Chilean sea bass, salmon, spicy pork bulgogi, and “fresh eel chirashi.”
Kaizen Revolving Sushi, 7450 W. Lake Mead Blvd., Suite 2, 702-463-8272. Open daily from 11.30 a.m. to 10 p.m. and closing at 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
