Nothing goes with sushi quite like some elbow grease. At least that seems like the premise behind a car wash in Australia. Star Sushi Bar and Hand Car Wash in a town called Colburg has combined the two without sacrificing quality for either.

A food writer for Broadsheet.com said the sushi at least was some of the best she’s ever had. The review says that a husband and wife team with experience in the car wash business and the restaurant business decided to combine the two ideas. They opened their location last year and so far, people seem to enjoy the convenience of a good meal while their cars are cleaned.

Business was slow for the restaurant at first. But then they started delivering and word spread. Now the owners say their sushi rolls, salads and soups are as sought after as their car washing services. The next step for the business, the couple said, is to rebrand and revamp their location.
