Tulsa , OK - Sushi Train Food Review
3302 E. 51st Street
Tulsa, OK 74135
A cool concept, worth trying but just above average.
Those of you who follow my food reviews know that sushi is my kryptonite, I love some good sushi and sashimi. It is kind of eerie sometimes how I just get this tingle, some would call it a sixth sense, when I am out and about. Somehow, someway I just know that there is a sushi place near.
I have been to sushi train numerous times and at various times of day. First off, I do love the concept of the train. This was the first city I saw this in and really loved the idea of being able to try out different types of sushi without having to buy full rolls, I could see this adapted to other "genres" of food as well.
For the most part I have liked what I have tried there and will say that I do like having the choices available. So why the "above average" comment at the start of the review? Because there are times that items seem to sit before they get to hop onto the train for their ride around and for the rest of you who like sushi I think you will agree with me that one of the most important factors of freshness is just how quickly that sushi is served after it is made.
That is one of the biggest draw backs of sushi at a buffet (which this is not, but I am using as a reference), it tends to sit around. I have never timed how long the sushi sits at the window waiting to go out onto the train, but I know I have gotten some that has sat at room temperature too long to really be considered nice and fresh. This doesn't happen often ming you, if it did I would be giving them a bad review and never gone back and I am not doing that. I will return to them again in the future.
Customer service is generally good, a few times it has been lacking but for the most part it has been good. Facility has been clean, no complaints there.
In summary, do I think they are worth trying out? Sure I do! The value is there for what you spend especially in relation to choices available. If they could get their timing a bit better, that would really put them over the top I think.
