Tucked away around the corner of Franklin Street lies Kurama Sushi & Noodle Express. Staff writer Claire Willmschen spent an evening sampling their menu.
Kurama is small, intimate space with entirely wooden furniture. Booths line the outer walls while bar-style seating surround the middle of the room where the chef is visibly creating the sushi. Also around the chef is a sushi conveyor belt, delivering all kinds of sushi to the surrounding customers.
The restaurant had no music playing, but it didn’t seem quiet because it was completely full. Every booth was taken. The service was still quick, however, and our waitress was attentive.
It was brightly lit inside and the walls were adorned with colorful asian art. What stood out the most was the sushi clock, where each of the numbers was a different type of sushi.
