I have been in very many sushi restaurants all over the world and on the international scale, excluding Japan, the sushi and sashimi are quite good. Certainly more affordable than I have ever had in the USA for such high quality. I have actually visited the restaurant at 232 Tremont Street, Boston but asume that the other restaurants in Brookline,... More

My girlfriend and I love sushi and this place did not dissapoint. The restaurant is really small so we had to wait around 20 minutes to get a table. Nice casual atmosphere. The shrimp tempora is awsome. It was also my first time trying sweet potato sushi, its a must try! For 3 rolls and a beer I spent less... More

It's a very small (neighborhood) place, but the sushi is unbeatable! I won't order from anywhere else.

I love sushi from Genki Ya! Pros: they deliver! Sushi is fresh and delicious! Lunch prices are reasonable! Cons: I always feel like I am inconveniencing my waiter when I dine in. Service is not great.

We were there on an early Saturday night, and the rest of the diners were mostly young couples. It was quiet and intimate. We had sushi, miso soup, and gyoza. All the food was great. The waitresses were very polite and attentive. For the quality of the food, the prices were very reasonable.

Recommended from a friend in cambridge. Although this place is a little out of the city of Boston, i would find a way to get to this sushi restaurant, there are good ones in Boston, but this one is fantastic in service, price, and quality of food.

The restaurant itself is really small and usually pretty crowded due to the lack of space. The sushi, however, is very very good! It can be a little bit expensive, but it is definitely completely worth it. If you love sushi, then definitely check this place out! Maybe if you can get it to go and find another place to... More

Genki Ya makes great sushi. It can be quite expensive if you order a lot of their special rolls, but they are very tasty and adventurous. I prefer this place to Mr Sushi, as they have more variety on offer. That everything comes from sustainable sources is a great bonus.

We have been going to Genki Ya for the past few years and love it each time we go. It is a small restaurant and the sushi is great quality and they have quite a variety of choices. Genki Ya has combinations of fish and other ingredients that we have not found in other sushi restaurants in the area. We... More
