The sushi train restaurant is now a chain(local). Sushi Kyo is open in the Big 5 shopping center on SE Commercial. This is big news to my family, they are big fans of the original store off Lancaster. This location will be much easier for us. More details coming soon.
The owner tells me that Sushi Kyo in the Cherry City(Big 5) plaza will have double the number of booth seating as the restaurant on Rickey St. Not to mention better parking. They have already seen some of their regular customers show up at the new store as business has been good since they opened Oct. 25th. The owner is confident that this new location is going to be a success because they have an experienced staff.
That shopping center has seen a lot of business turnover in the last few years. It's good to see an established restaurant going in there to help bring that place back to life.
