We visit here regularly and each time has been a true pleasure! My husband, who has served in Korea, says this is the best kimchi he has ever tasted. I am in love with their sushi...and we both adore the noodle dishes! We drive an hour from home just to get our fix! The food and service are top notch... More

I usually skip over strip mall restaurants - however this sushi restaurant is top notch whatever the location. Very nice decor inside and menu is very unique - definitely not the usual "mail-it-in" menu of a smaller city sushi place. Chef Danny takes great pride and the owner was on-site. Lanna clearly has high standards for the staff and the... More

We had a very bad experience at Genki Sushi We made a reservation and we arrived and was shocked to find out the reservation was canceled and there was no table available for us at the time. We find this rude and unacceptable We would not recommend this establishment based upon their attitudes towards customers

I love Trip Advisor so when I saw that Genki was rated #1 I had to go. Everyone was super friendly & knew A LOT of the people that came in. The owner visited our table and asked where were we from. I said we were locals but we had never visited Genki before. She said they've been there for... More

Genki is amazing! I loved every second being here. The staff where fantastic, the food was delicious, and the atmosphere was wonderful. My girlfriend, Ginger and I loved our meals. We started off with sushi, and my God, was this sushi the best we ever had. It was fantastic. Then we had our meals, Ginger had the teriyaki chicken and... More

This is the place for sushi. It's fresh and perfectly prepared. The grease from the fryer needs a better air handler! You can smell and feel it in the air when you walk in. The waiters were spot on! Helpful, witty and professional! They made our night! Four of us ordered the Bento box. It was filled with a fantastic... More

Sofie101, Owner at Genki Sushi, responded to this review

HI! I usually thank people for their reviews, however I believe you have reviewed the wrong restaurant???? This sounds like our place except for the fact that 1. Our fryer is located in the furthest possible location by the back door of the kitchen underneath a giant air handler. 2. We have Obento on our menu, however we do not... More

I had a few my adult kids home for the week. We all wanted sushi and decided to try Genki Sushi based on Trip advisor reviews. We were not disappointed!! We had pork gyoza, egg drop soup and edamame to start. The egg drop soup was the best my kids said they ever had. We ordered a variety of their... More
