Though not cheap, it is one of our favorite special occasion places. We have always had a delightful experience. Love the Yum Yum sauce and green tea ice cream.

Have been to Genji's for lunch and dinner with a friend, and with family, many times over the years and it has always been a delightful experience. The chef's are always entertaining, and the food is well prepared-- whether at the hibachi grill or in the private dining area, Good selections and friendly waiters are a good enticement.

So I went here not knowing what to expect - never been to a Japanese grill like that before so was looking forward to this new experience (yeah I don't get out much). So we were met by staff who were accommodating as we did have a food sensitivity. Staff were courteous and were sat at a grill with another... More

Genji offers a entertaining dining experience for special occasions. I have been there a dozen times over the years and my family and I enjoy the food and presentation very much. The average plate is around $35.00, not a good place for dining on a budget,but a good place for an Americanized Japanese Steak House.

We recently attended a retirement party there. The food was was prepared at a hibachi grill in front of us. The chefs were very entertaining, and the food was very good. The pricing was average. The interior of the building was satisfactory but the exterior was looking rundown and not maintained.

Genji's food and menu wasn't too bad but the service could of been better. The dining room was hot and humid making the table sticky. Above our table I noticed a dirty rag sitting on top of the ceiling. The food was good though, I had the yellowtail spicy roll along with the chicken and shrimp dinner.

We love Genji's in Midland and decided to try this for lunch while we were in Saginaw. We ate in the private dining area since we only wanted sushi. My husband had the sushi lunch which was fair. The sushi rice was not very good which made the sushi seem off. I had the Udon soup and a firecracker roll.... More

Genji is hands down my favorite resteraunt in saginaw. They have the best rice. Cooks are a blast to watch. The yum yum sauce is a must try. Price is high..so I can't go as much as I'd like
