As a patron of Genesis Family Restaurant for more than two decades, I was very disappointed in a recent dining experience. I ordered my favorite dish, sizzling fried oysters and garlic and black bean sauce. First off, it arrived NOT sizzling. It was barely hot. The oysters were not crispy and were poorly cooked. The sauce was watery. Its overall... More

Genesis Family Restaurant used to be owned by different people, back about 5 or more years ago, I do not know when it changed ownership, but trust me it is not the same as it used to be, we used to be able to order brown rice, now they do not offer it. I will not go back with the... More

Please make sure you check the bill they add the gratuity but fail to tell you so you end up paying 30% The menu that is available online is NOT up to date thus another shocker. We had a party of 20 expecting to pay about 340.00 The bill was 403.00 and we left 60.00 tip on top only to... More

Love this place. We order from there, everytime we are in Saskatoon. Great for take out, and dine in is Ok, too. Try the Happy Family, if you like lots of shrimp, chicken, beef with your veggies. Tasty !! Portions are very large, so plan accordingly.

Second best stomach lining in town. The toenails on the duck feet could have been trimmed shorter. Overall it was very good

If you are looking for a dining experience, don't bother. I agree with a previous reviewer that this place is in need of a good cleaning. If you like bright florescent lighting, uncomfortable booths and restrooms in need of attention, then this is the place for you. Did I mention the food is average at best? There is way too... More

Genesis provides a family friendly environment. It's a good place to go with families and large groups. it's brightly lit, the booths are very large and hold 6 people. They also have a couple of private dining rooms for private parties. There is always a few people regardless of the time of day you go. The menu is extensive and... More

I love Dim Sum here and have been a patron of Genesis since the 90's. I agree with others in that the food selection for Dim Sum has narrowed and the food has become ok. The interior is very old and often dirty and needs an overhaul. I'd live to give my once fav place to eat in Saskatoon a... More

we decide to celebrate our family reunion on this restaurant. It was my first time to visit this restaurant and my first time to experience a horrible kind of service. The hostess manager is very very very rude! no manner! food is really great but arrived after one and a half hour! We will never go back and recommend this... More
