What was nice about this was the fact that you didn't have to wait for someone to cut and bring the sushi to you. Although I have had some experiences where the food on the moving sushi bar was not fresh, I did not find that to be the case here. For one there were a lot of patrons visiting this evening. For another the Sushi staff was cutting from the visible kitchen area and adding to/removing from the moving bar as it went around. A very efficient system in fact.
Among the sushi we tried included the Volcano Roll (baked spicy crawfish atop a California Roll), the Hot Red Dragon (Spicy fish roll atop tuna with hot sauce and chili powder), The Lobster Roll, the black pepper tuna, the shaggy dog (Shrimp tempura with cucumber topped with Kana), California Roll, and Smoked Salmon sashimi. We also had Red Bean Ice Cream and Cheesecake for dessert.

One thing to watch out for: how much you eat. The moving buffet where you can grab what you want as you pass is VERY CONVENIENT. However, it also makes it VERY EASY to rack up your tab real fast. Sushi is meant to be savoured, not over consumed or to be pigged out on, so keep that in mind when you come eat here.
I think next time I will go to the menu and try some items that you have to wait on. They have Udon, Yaki Soba and other noodles with different meats and veggies, as well as Teriyaki and Hibachi combo meals. I'd consider this a good and safe place for a Sushi novice to visit, and definitely a family friendly place as well. I'd not recommend this place for Sushi snobs however. But you know what--it's okay. Houston has plenty of great Sushi places to satisfy Sushi pro's, snobs and novices, and that's what's so great about our fair city.
