This is a fun restaurant. They serve sushi type foods and there is a conveyor belt that passes by your table. You can take the food off the belt or order. The food is excellent and reasonably priced.

the Sushi goes around a rotating track, you grab what you want. The servers are slow and forget about getting drink refills. The sushi I had was all good, it's color coded so you can figure out the price. It was good, I would go again.

I HAD THE ABSOLUTE WORST RESTAURANT EXPERIENCE at Genki today. I am a regular customer meaning I go there 2-3 times a week for lunch and often dinner with my husband. It was later in the day (2:30) and as usual I just sat down at the bar because there was no hostess and only four people in the entire... More

This is a chain in Hawaii, and maybe Japan. You sit in front of a conveyer belt and the Sushi goes round and round. You take what you want and you can also order hot dishes from the kitchen if the selection looks like it's been around too many times. The quality is excellent if a bit pricey for what... More

Had a great lunch with the family. Always consistent at Genki. Loved the soft shell crab, will be back again. Probably sooner than later.

At this Genki, no one acknowledges you right away. There was a wait time and there was 3 tables that were open, but they did not clear the tables in a timely manner. Finally when we were seated, we were starving and glad to pull the plates off the belt! We enjoyed the food and left there full and satisfied.

Fish was old. You can tell by looking at the fish that it was not fresh. There is nothing worse than bad sushi. Nuff said

Cheap. Unauthentic. Fast. Easy. Sometimes tasty. Convenient. It is what it is. For people who don't already know about genki sushi, they will be the ones disappointed when they see this is NOT sushi albeit the name states otherwise. I would compare this sushi with people wanting to go to a pizza joint only to find out they are eating... More

The concept of this restaurant is really fun. It would be a fun place to bring kids or maybe even a first date. The ambiance is your typical chain restaurant....bright, cold, mainstream. The sushi, however, was much better than I expected. The prices were very reasonable and the sushi was filling. Their tempura rolls were tasty and my favorite were... More

We ate dinner at Genki Sushi four nights ago, and then again tonight. After entering the building and waiting several minutes this evening, the guy at the entrance stated flatly "your name is......." I gave him my name and said there are six of us and he simply walked away without another word. I was wondering what he was doing... More
