      I'm familiar with the Sushi express in Taiwan - here it's a nicely affordable conveyer belt sushi place, with a combination of sushi items and more appetizer like small dishes or deserts (edamame, okra, seaweed salad, milk pudding), with a fixed price per item. Specific items can be ordered off the menu (the more premium items tend not to show up on the belt).

      I have no idea what the prices will be in the US, though - I suspect the dollar/item Taiwan price won't carry over.
