"Fresh" is not what usually comes to mind when thinking about sushi train style sushi, but K's Sushi in Burwood has proved me wrong time and time again.
K's Sushi in Burwood.
If you haven't been to a sushi train style restaurant before, you must, and K's is the place to go. The premise is that sushi is continuously made, and placed on a conveyor belt, and you simply pick whichever plate appeals to you. The plates are colour coded for pricing, and the staff members calculate your tab at the end of the meal based on the coloured plates.

Plate pricing is clearly displayed on the wall - so no bill shock at the end of your meal.
When visiting K's there are two must-have dishes - the aburi scallop nigiri, and the aburi crab leg nigiri. Unlike the standard rolled sushi, nigiri is hand formed. The seafood in these nigiri has been lightly seared (aburi) bringing out its natural sweetness and the whole dish is drizzled with a tasty eel sauce.

If you're keen to sample sushi train food, but are after a more traditional setting, there are also tables available at K's, which are great for larger groups that prefer not to be squeezed in around the bar, and a menu which can be ordered off.
Besides the various sushi style dishes served on the train, there is also a variety made-to-order items that you can order off the menu, these include ramen and udon noodles, chicken karaage (a deep fried chicken dish), and agedashi tofu (deep fried tofu in broth) to name but a few. As K's is a regular haunt of mine, I have tried all these dishes on various occasions, and I have to say, they do not disappoint.
