Kura
« on: February 07, 2019, 12:34:59 AM »
I'm going to Kura Revolving Sushi in Irvine next week for dinner. My friend picked the place. This will be a first for me. Any advice?

I seem to have developed a shellfish allergy within just the past year. So, idk if there will really be anything there that is safe to eat. How do you even know what's on the conveyer belt? It seems like it would be hard to tell one thing from another. This could be a game of Russian Roulette.  :)

Best advice is to avoid that place.  I am not sure why it is busy there but I can say that about many Irvine restaurants.

@SoCal:

If you can't get out of eating there, I believe they have non-sushi/cooked items that you can order.
Once you go 3-car garage... your junk can never go back.

You can order from the menu, but there are better Japanese places in South OC.

If you want to impress, Kitayama is pretty old school with Japanese garden, but pricey.

If you absolutely have to eat at a revolving sushi bar, try Kaisen in Costa Mesa.  Aim for seats closer to the chef.

+1 For Kaisen.
They have decent Uni for a great price. Also try their off menu items like Salmon Trio and Seared Fatty Tuna.

For sit down sushi dining, try Sushi Murasaki in Santa Ana (Fairview & MacArthur):
http://www.sushi-murasaki.com/

It's hidden in an office complex like center.

Yeah, I wouldn't go to Kura myself. It's for people who really don't know or don't care about the quality of the sushi/fish.

In Irvine, I've been to Jinbei in OH plaza, Kiyo in NP Plaza, and Oo Toro in Michaelson Dr. They were all pretty decent in terms of fish qualities.

I wouldn't suggest places like Kura, Niko Niko, Kabuki or any poke bowl places. Those are for collage students in my opinion. They felt so high end when I was in college though ;D .

I'm kinda curious O Fine Japanese Cuisine in QH plaza. Anyone been there?

So if you order something, they place it on the conveyor belt?... and anybody can just snatch your order before it gets to you?

Also, is it Kura or Kula? I see it spelled both ways. I want to make sure I can locate this place. It looks like both are in Google Maps.

Shunka on 17th St in Costa Mesa is pretty legit (which means Japanese owned).

We went to Halves on Tuesday night instead of Kura. My first time. I was a total stranger. They had to walk me through it, hehe, but it was good. The young guys that work there are really sweet and helpful. The young Filipino guy is super attentive, friendly, and made sure I was totally comfortable. Even though it was getting busier than I would have imagined for a weeknight, they treated my friend and I like we were the only people there. So A+ on service. It was kind of sad walking in there because I remember when it was Eleven46 & I used to go there all the time back then. That was a nice family that owned it. It's almost completely revamped now. It kind of seems smaller now but looks really nice. I might be brave enough to go on my own sometime.

Happy Valentine's Day, TI.
