Red Tuna, Tacomas newest conveyor belt sushi restaurant, opened Saturday at Tacoma Mall. The restaurant will be a combination sushi-on-a-belt restaurant and a restaurant serving robatayaki, a rustic style of Japanese grilling. While sushi was up and running around the belt this weekend, the restaurant has not yet started its robatayaki menu. Watch for that in another week or so.
On my anonymous visit, I found a fledgling restaurant with details still being tended. Service was a bright spot efficient and doting, the staffers stayed attentive. When a jam-up on the conveyor belt sent dishes flying, staffers were all over the mess before we could even turn our heads to look at the sushi highway mishap.
