I’ll admit: this restaurant is mainly worth going to for novelty’s sake. There are a multitude of sushi-go-rounds with the same quality for similar (or lower prices), but there’s something to be said about getting your discount rolls delivered by a toy shinkansen.
Located in Minoya Freshmart, a Japanese supermarket right next to the Gubei Carrefour, this sushi place’s plates range from 8rmb to 22rmb a plate. Besides sushi, you can also order various types of ramen, rice & noodle dishes and some ice creams and cakes as well. Asahi drafts are 18rmb each. You get what you pay for: the sushi is not top grade, but it will do when you want an infusion of raw fish without spending a lot of cash.
Plus, it’s fun. You order your dishes through a touchscreen LCD display located between every two seats. When the chef’s done with your food, he/she sends it by small bullet train, which stops right in front of you. You press a button to send the train rushing back to its chef. You can only confirm four dishes at a time, since that’s the amount the toy bullet train can carry.
A table of two can expect to spend just a little under 100rmb, including drinks.
Minoya is located on the 1st Floor of Unit F, Victoria Mansion, 126 East Ronghua Road (near South Shuicheng Road) 荣华东道126号维多利亚大厦F座1楼近水城南路.
