The Experience

At Kura, patrons can either choose anything from the revolving bar or order from the touchscreen and it will arrive right at your table through the conveyer belt.

The eatery is able to maintain its food fresh at all times due to the ventilated sushi lid and plate-tracking technology.

Toy prizes can also be won if enough plates are deposited into the side of your table. Kura’s mascot, Muten-Maro, occasionally appears on the touchscreen to remind you of your goal.

An HG team member visited Kura for her birthday recently and she says, “If the Jersey City location is the same as the one in Fort Lee, reservations are highly recommended because, on a busy day, you might catch yourself waiting for a couple of hours due to its popularity. It’s definitely worth the wait!”

HG Pro Tip: Go with an empty stomach so you can try everything and choose the booth when you sit.

Other sushi spots in Jersey City include Honshu, Komegashi, Teppan Bar + Grill, DOMO DOMO, OZU, Ichiban, and more. Safe to say the sushi scene is slowly growing, one unique spot at a time.
