I don’t know why but it’s taken me forever to write a review for Sushi Katien. I mean we were there for the hubby’s birthday in January and haven’t bothered to share how good the place was! Obviously I’m behind. (Just like I was for this review.)
Anyway… Sushi Katien. A co-worker of mine suggested it and she was right this place is so cool. They have a conveyor belt that runs around the bar with plates of various sushi on it. When you sit at the bar and see something you like you just take it off the belt and eat. And, when you’re done eating the wait staff collects your plates and tallies up your total based on number and color of plates.
You can find Miso Soup on just about every appetizer menu at sushi restaurants. And, I always order it. It’s light, works well as a starter and is really filling.
John grabbed several different rolls off the conveyor belt one of the plates was the Bad Hair Day Sushi Roll, it was really pretty and according to him really tasty. There were several others that he really liked too. The fish was fresh, the sauces were flavorful and according to him paired very well with the sake he ordered.
I’ll admit I’m not a big fan of sushi, in fact I don’t like raw fish. But, if you put a plate of Cucumber Rolls in front of me I’ll eat the whole plate. And, that’s what I did at this restaurant. The rolls were simply cucumber, seaweed and rice, just like they should be, and once dipped in soy sauce were gone!
The same co-worker that suggested we try this place said we had to save room for their Chocolate Lava Cake. And, she was right, it was warm, chocolatey, gooey, warm, chocolatey, gooey… and so on. It was the perfect end to our dinner.
Bottom line: The service is good whether you sit at the bar and chat with the chefs or at one of their tables served by wait staff, the food is tasty and the conveyor belt is really awesome. You have to check this place out if you’re in Longmont!
