Two Doraville sushi restaurants are giving raw fish lovers the opportunity to have to very unique, distinct experiences,.

Art Hayakawa, a Japanese-born and -trained sushi chef with more than two decades of reputation in Atlanta, closed his namesake restaurant Sushi Hayakawa last year for several months for renovations. The changes are noticeable — namely, the restaurant now offers less seating, which AJC food critic Wyatt William says works to the spot’s advantage. Read his review here.

For sushi with whistles and bells, AJC food critic Wendell Brock suggests visiting Kula Revolving Sushi. He likens the visit to “stepping inside a sushi-themed pinball machine,” with sushi and other dishes coming by on a conveyor belt and a score kept on a personalized video monitor (at five-plate intervals, the screen lights up with an animated Japanese video). Read his review here.
