Love sushi? Or asian food in general? How about a place with cube-shaped seats in the waiting area, party rooms with big buttons that change the light ambience of the room and a stool-bar area with a conveyer belt full of sushi? Sound strange enough? Well, that's Pod for you in a nut-shell.
Pod is not just a restaurant: its an eating experience. I've got there and sat at their bar (where they have unique drinks made especially for Pod), sat with a party of 10 in one of their party rooms (and played all nights with the big-colored buttons that changed the lights of the room) and even sat at the conveyer-belt and stool bar to sample their many sushi varieties. Each and every time, my experience at Pod has been different and unique, but always enjoyable. Go for the experience and, if nothing else, to watch the gigantic screen playing Japanese-only movies constantly, *wink*. Oh yeah, and their crazy unique desserts (like passion fruit creme brulee) are worth splurging on the calories!
Beware, you do need reservations and the prices are PRICEY. Definitely not for the college students in the area on a budget. But worth the price for a special occassion or when the folks are in town for Alumni weekend.
