At Kura Sushi Bar in Philadelphia: Technology revolution + Authentic Japanese Cuisine = A Good Time!

If you’re looking for a unique dining experience, there’s no better place than the new Kura Sushi Bar in Philadelphia. Kura Sushi is the first of its kind in Pennsylvania and its innovative approach to Japanese cuisine will blow your mind. With a revolving sushi bar and express belt, they offer over 140 delicious and authentic menu options made with natural, premium ingredients. Plus, the high-tech sushi bar is pushing boundaries with its cutting-edge technology, including an interactive touch panel at your table and Kur-B the KuraBot.

Let’s take a closer look at how Kura is using technology to revolutionize the dining experience. 

The Revolving Sushi Bar & Express Belt

Kura Sushi Bar is known for its two-layered conveyor belt system that circulates throughout the entire restaurant. On the upper layer is what they call the “Express Belt,” which contains tasty appetizers like Edamame and Miso soup. The lower layer is where you can find traditional sushi plates with items like Salmon Nigiri, California Rolls, and Spicy Tuna Rolls. As each plate – aka “Mr. Fresh,” a ventilated sushi lid with plate-tracking technology – passes by on the belt, allowing customers to choose what looks good to them, it’s as easy as point, pull plate and eat.

Tablets for Ordering

At each booth and counter space, there are tablets available that allow customers to order directly from their seats. This feature also allows customers to customize their orders and get accurate pricing information before ordering anything off the menu. Not only does this make ordering food faster and easier, but it also helps Kura reduce waste by eliminating excess food items that were ordered but never eaten.

There is gamification to the dining process as well. After guests deposit five plates in their plate disposal slot, the touch screen plays a video featuring Kura’s mascot, Mutenmaru, who rewards them with a prize after 15 plates are deposited. This prize is gonna cost you since each plate costs an average of $3.55 (soups cost between $8 and $11).

Kur-B the KuraBot

With Kur-B the KuraBot, Kura Sushi Bar is bringing a new level of innovation to the restaurant experience. The Kur-B service delivers drinks tableside and allows customers to get their drinks quickly without waiting for service. Waitstaff place drinks on Kur-B and program it to deliver them directly to a party’s table. Drink orders can also be placed directly on Kur-B’s tablet, speeding up service even further. Additionally, Kur-B allows guests to check out on their mobile phones, streamlining the checkout process and reducing wait times.

Opening their first restaurant in 1977, Kura insists on using no artificial ingredients whatsoever and has continually improved their recipes, so the customer always gets an authentic Japanese dining experience.
