Kura Sushi, a Japan-based chain that features a revolving sushi bar and conveyer belt, opened the doors of its second restaurant in New Jersey.
Located at Newport Tower in Jersey City, Kura Sushi offers authentic Japanese dishes made with natural, premium ingredients free of artificial sweeteners, seasonings, preservatives and colorings.
Founded 45 years ago in Japan, the restaurant is known for pioneering the revolving sushi concept to develop an approach that combines advanced technology, premium ingredients and affordable prices. Since then, Kura Sushi has grown to more than 500 locations across the U.S., Japan and Taiwan.
Within New Jersey, the chain also has a restaurant in Fort Lee, which opened in September 2020.
According to Kura Sushi, its revolving sushi bar circulates throughout the entire restaurant with various sushi offerings. Diners can also order from tablets at each booth and counter space from a menu of 140-plus items, which, after being prepared, are sent zipping down an express belt directly to tables.
One of the most recent technologies adopted by the chain is Kur-B, a robot that delivers drink orders tableside.
The newest restaurant, located at 525 Washington Blvd. in Jersey City, is open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday to Thursday and from 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.
