We’ve been fans of Jidai Kaiten Sushi since they opened. In kaiten sushi (回転寿司) you sit around the outside of a geometric shape and a conveyor belt brings various plates around in front of you. The sushi chefs are inside the shape – a triangle here. The color of the plate indicates the price.
Jidai is in the Shops at Boca Grove, on the west side of Powerline between Glades and Palmetto.
Jidai normally prices plates from $2 to $5, though there are other items on a menu you can order that are not on the conveyor belt. For their new dinner deal (see image above), the $2 and $3 plates have their normal price, and the $4 and $5 plates are reduced to $3 during a “happy hour” window from 5 – 7 pm.
We stopped by today for the Jidai lunch deal we wrote about previously – all the plates are $2. They are extending that deal until further notice.
We’re not just saying we’re fans. We’ve been there three times this month for the lunch deal. And it appears that the deal offer is working. They had a good lunch crowd today.
We enjoyed our meal today, as usual, and will be back for more.
Disclosure: Our first few articles about Jidai were written without any business relationship. After we wrote the lunch deal article we did an ad campaign for the article. The restaurant paid for the ads and paid us a small fee for managing them. We generally pay full price for our meals there but they have sometimes given us a small discount or a free item. The monetary value of what we have received is trivial and we really do love the place. We have talked about doing another ad campaign but this article was written with no compensation.
