Fast moving food equals better quality.

In summary: Value for money sushi.

The thing about conveyor belt sushi is that these sushi need to move fast. Imagine if your sushi revolves around the place for 1 hour, would your food remain fresh? Probably not. But sushi express clears their stock reasonably fast and there's really no need to worry if you get duds, at least for the forseeable time.

For the number of times that I went there in the evening, it has the basic fresh sashimi that you can enjoy, and even the flame seared salmon skin that's one of the most popular plates there, along with scallops and various fish choices. I wouldn't rate the eel or tuna too highly (you're better off having these as a set meal somewhere else) due to the ingredients' quality, but it still caters to a need for variety if you so wish. The miso soup contains slices of salmon, making it quite flavourful but considerably oily.

The chopsticks are placed in a box, teabags and cups are close by to your seat. I do however find that the hot water isn't really hot enough, perhaps 50 degrees or so. The tea doesn't really cut it for me.

The staff cooks wear masks and chef hats, so it doesn't seem to follow a pretty good hygiene standard. The only uncertainty is the reused covers they use (surely they wash and dry it?). I had an upset stomach once after eating there from the multiple visits, but I didn't really taste anything that's off about the sushi, so I think that was a problem on the covers.

Despite this incident, I still see this as a place for having a quick fix on the sushi craving for value. I actually get full around 10 plates+, so it really isn't that expensive.

Tampines 1 Sushi Express

Great for Casual Dining!

Chanced upon Sushi Express @ Tampines 1 and I was fairly satisfied with the overall dining experience. Each table is allowed a dining duration of 40 mins, a concept quite common in Japan and hence we were quickly led to our seats despite it being full house (lunch hour). 
At first glance there seems to be a wide array of food choices though the choices are actually limited. The sushi is generally satisfactory, somewhat like a better version of the supermarket sushi, though at a much affordable pricetag! Sushi Express offers complimentary green tea, in fact it is self-served (and free-flow), and this greatly enhances the low price factor!
Besides sushi, Sushi Express also offers, however limited, an array of desserts namely their mochi, pudding,cheesecake and a few others. The sashimi and their other delicacies are fairly tasteful, though its quality has highly superseded its price. So no complaints, given its great price! Their scallops are definitely a must-try! Albeit a longer wait for certain food items, have patience guys! 
Generally a satisfactory meal, and the total bill came up to about 30 bucks, inclu service charges and GST, pleasantly surprised yet delighted. EE!

A quick & nice meal to settle

Without any queue, I went in for my lunch.  I didn't expect much of the fantastic food with the offering range of pricings like this.  So long it's hygenie & fresh & eatable, I am fine with any food or place.

It was so funny that I actually tried under this same group of sushi chain stores at Taipei.  And when I came back, my friends organized it at Somerset branch.  The standard is still there, quite a lovely place to gather same alike friends to enjoy affordable jap cuisine.

Eat Ala Carte as Buffet style

Very cheap only SGD1.5/per plate. You can forget about the prices just constantly eat still full and still cheaper than eating buffet.

The only concern, there is minimum choices. Good choice is minimum, u need be patient for waiting cheif has batch processing for certain favorite meal.

There is some valuable meal has removed, quantity drop since early 2014.

Good choice for casual gathering

Love this place for gathering or a simple satisfaction for sushi craving. I am very happy with the value of the pricing. Those who complained about the quality or hygiene can take a roll of California roll and stuck it up your ***. Let's face it, for the price they are offering, I can't be asking for more
