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.
