Kula Revolving Sushi Bar in Plano just became a new favorite go-to for my husband and me. And that’s saying a lot, since sushi-fanaticism isn’t something we’ve previously shared (I was the non-fanatic).
Located on Legacy Drive and open since Mother’s Day, the restaurant is among nine other Kula Revolving Sushi Bar locations in the United States and boasts a wide menu selection featuring organic ingredients.
When we visited on a Thursday evening (it was my husband’s second time that day), the experience was relaxing and fun from signing in to signing the check.
We signed in and received a number and an estimated wait time, followed by text updates letting us know how many parties were in front of us in line. Arriving sometime in the 6:00 p.m. hour, we received a wait time of 24 minutes and were called in 15.
We started digging right in after sitting down by selecting courses as they floated past on the winding conveyer belt, and later ordered a few items directly to our table—also delivered via conveyer belt—by using the touch screen at our table.
As I mentioned previously, sushi normally isn’t my favorite, so the first thing I snagged from the revolving bar was a slice of surprisingly amazing New York Cheesecake.
I started in on the entrees with a plate of Premium American Wagyu, which was definitely my favorite dish of the night, followed by the Seared Beef with Yakiniku Sauce and the Umami Oil Seared Beef. (I love steak, if you can’t tell.)
Don’t worry—I eventually worked up the nerve to try some non-beef sushi, including the Seared Salmon with Japanese Mayo (good) and the Garlic Tuna Steak (amazing).
My husband, on the other hand, the sushi connoisseur, raved about the Spicy Salmon Roll, Real Crab California Roll, Spider Roll, and Tiger Roll, his favorite being the Tiger roll with its jalapeño topping. We both enjoyed a Mochi Ice for dessert (we ordered the peach and green tea flavors), which he described as “positively incredible.” The menu also features sides of various soups, noodles, vegetables, and even fried chicken.
So how did Kula Revolving Sushi Bar compare to other sushi restaurants? I asked my husband.
“Best I’ve ever had,” he said, “as far as freshness—and the price point is excellent.”
And considering the quality of taste, service and atmosphere, the price was not bad at all. Our 16-plate meal cost slightly over $40 and left us stuffed. Regardless of whether sushi is your thing, I would highly recommend Plano’s Kula Revolving Sushi Bar as a great location for a family outing, party with friends, or fun date.
Though the Plano location is the first Kula Revolving Sushi Bar in the Dallas-Fort Worth area (and in fact the first location in Texas), the restaurant will also be coming to Carrolton in July, according to the restaurant’s website.
