Since Chandler's Sushi Eye in Motion closed last fall, all's been quiet on the kaiten-zushi, or conveyor belt sushi, front -- at least until now.

Now, those who want their sushi served up with a little kitsch -- that is, rolling by them on small color-coded plates traveling along a mini conveyor belt -- can add Ahi Revolving Sushi in Gilbert to the Valley's small list of places to get it.

Opened on April 5 at 940 South Gilbert Road, Ahi Revolving Sushi serves up plastic-topped, conveyor belt fare as well as the option to special order what you don't see passing by from a server.

The menu offers sushi selections such as standard and signature rolls like the Iron Roll, made with spicy tuna and avocado with a crunchy top of sliced eel and tobiko (flying fish roe). Other dishes include entrees such as shrimp tempura and chicken katsu; appetizers like edamame and gyoza; squid salad and miso soup; mochi (pounded sticky rice) ice cream; and specialty drinks including a green tea milkshake and Ahi Limeade.

Other spots for conveyor belt sushi in the Valley include the Sushi Station at Desert Ridge in Phoenix and Teharu Sushi in Tempe.

For those new to conveyor belt sushi, the process is simple: Small color-coded plates travel along a mini conveyor belt, you nab what you want as it passes by, and when you've had your fill, an employee adds up the plates for the bill. Not for sushi purists, kaiten-zushi is decidedly quantity over quality -- and wallet-friendly, too. Most plates are $2 or $3, with a few in the $5 range.
