Houston has no shortage of sushi, but there’s only a few spots where you can watch your raw fish zoom around the room on a conveyor belt. That will all soon change when a California-based chain makes its way to Clutch City later this year.

Via an announcement on its website, Kula Revolving Sushi Bar is plotting its first Houston outpost. The California-based restaurant, which features conveyor belt sushi, ramen, and sweets, has already opened two locations in Dallas-Fort Worth, along with a forthcoming outpost in Austin.

For those who are a little queasy at the idea of sushi that makes its way around the dining room before it ends up in your mouth, diners at Kula Revolving Sushi Bar sit at a counter or table equipped with a computer screen, and can order sashimi, rolls, and snacks directly from the kitchen that zoom right to your seat a few moments after you tap in your request.

No opening date has yet been announced for Kula Revolving Sushi Bar’s first Houston restaurant, but expect for it to open its doors in the Westchase District at some point this summer.
