Get ready to pick up plates of sushi zooming by on conveyor belts when Kula Revolving Sushi Bar opens in Austin. Customers will be able to pluck plates of sushi and food that zoom by on plastic-domed pods. It is set to open this fall.

Sushi and nigiri pieces are usually $2.25, with other items like ramen, takoyaki, and mochi, range from $2 to $5.80. For guests looking for something in particular, orders can be places on iPads located at each seat. The drink menu includes sake and beer. There are ten locations, with one in Plano and a second planned for Carrollton.

Kula will become part of the renovations planned for Highland Village on Airport and North Lamar boulevards, which will be renamed Crescent. The shopping center will also become home to California-based Asian supermarket 99 Ranch Market, which specializes in Chinese, Korean, and Japanese goods. This will be the chain’s 41st location, and fifth in Texas. It will open early next year.

The Highland Village-to-Crescent renovations come from Misuma Holdings, which are overseeing The Linc, too, the future home of Easy Tiger's expansion.
