Restaurant news: 21-cent doughnuts, free pizza slices — and a review of Fire and the Feast

Posted: February 7, 2023

Sushi Hana just opened in Lynnwood at 18500 33rd Ave. W. The number for takeout is 425-582-0322. But the allure for this restaurant is missed if you don’t eat there, since they use a touch-screen tablet for ordering and a monorail system to deliver your specific order. They also use robots to manufacture some of the food, such as rice balls and maki. Here is the menu. Hours are Tuesday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-8:30 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m.-9 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m.-8:30 p.m. Closed on Monday.

I will be offering full reviews for these new restaurants, but meanwhile please go out and try them. Send me your feedback or post it in the comments.”

Sushi Hana Lynnwood Robot

Peanut the robot waitress is on a roll at Lynnwood’s Sushi Hana

“She’s less RoboCop and more Rosey as she patrols the restaurant, making sure everyone has a drink and good time.”

“A robot named Peanut is the serving sensation at the new Sushi Hana in Alderwood Plaza. You can hear her chipper tune as she glides down the aisles, greeting new diners with cups of ice water. Peanut is about 4 feet tall. She moves swiftly and surely. Pure artificial intelligence in motion. ‘She’s pretty smart,’ restaurant owner Sarah Lee said. ‘It’s part of the entertainment for the kids. Adults, too.’…

“…While Peanut works the aisles, a monorail train system works the other side of the table. Food, made to order, arrives on the inside track. An iPad affixed to the table takes the orders. There are over 90 types of sushi items, plus noodles, hot dishes and favorites such as Japanese fried chicken and calamari. The screen shows the price and ingredients. Tap, add and send. In the kitchen, robotic appliances make rice balls and sheets for the sushi rolls.”
