The sushi chef at Sushi Genki had the traditional training in Japan, and then went on to work at the Banff Springs Resort. If you have ever been to Japan, had the best sushi of your life, and are looking to recreate the experience, THIS is where you go. Every bite is perfection, and the presentation is impeccable. I feel... More

Very tasty food at a very reasonable price. The beef udon soup is the best I have ever tasted! Delicious broth. They have recently added menu items such as raman and teriyaki rice bowls. Very busy and extremely friendly staff.

I have a new favourite place for sushi since Sushi Genki came on the scene. I'm sure it doesn't compare to the famous sushi places in larger centres, but by Okanagan standards, Sushi Genki offers a delicious, beautiful selection at a good value. Their menu is more limited than most other Japanese restaurants in the area, due to the limitations... More

The sushi is meh, not bad but definitely not up to the local standards set by Ginza or Evergreen and several orders of magnitude further down the sushi hierarchy than O'Zekis in Kelowna. The place is a stand up takeout hole in the wall so don't expect ambiance. I made the horrible mistake of not carefully reading the menu and... More

The front is unassuming, but this tiny restaurant has some of the freshest tasting sushi I've had. The summer special for $9.99 provided a nice selection and was perfect for lunch. lots of wasabi and ginger- what more can you ask for! A real find in a small town.

Always wondering what to have for dinner is a chore. So we checked out best restaurants in Penticton and came across Sushi Genki. Ordered a take out order and was amazed at how inexpensive it was. So I ordered more and it still only came to $21.00. Food was some of the very best we ever had the pleasure to... More

We felt like sushi on a stay in Penticton and found this little place. The food was great and so was the service. Definitely recommend.

I thoroughly enjoyed watching the owner and his wife prepare my sushi tray. He handrolled the sushi right then and there. The flavour and texture was perfect. This tiny little sushi shop can easily be missed, but be sure to visit. The price is unbelievable and the quality is exceptional!

We visit two to three times a week and always get the monthly special. Best value for your money. You get 20 pieces for $8.50 and it changes every month. We also get a spicy tuna , extra spicy. They always make the plates look beautiful. Fresh , for such a small place , always busy. A must try if... More
