The sushi is meh, not bad but definitely not up to the local standards set by Ginza or Evergreen and several orders of magnitude further down the sushi hierarchy than O'Zekis in Kelowna. The place is a stand up takeout hole in the wall so don't expect ambiance. I made the horrible mistake of not carefully reading the menu and ordered the small rolls which are not just small, they're microscopic. They're more like cut up cigarillos than sushi rolls. The nori was disconcertingly chewy, but the rest of the sushi was difficult to review as there was so darn little of it. The bigger rolls might be better but I won't find out as I'm not going back.

The front is unassuming, but this tiny restaurant has some of the freshest tasting sushi I've had. The summer special for $9.99 provided a nice selection and was perfect for lunch. lots of wasabi and ginger- what more can you ask for! A real find in a small town.

Always wondering what to have for dinner is a chore. So we checked out best restaurants in Penticton and came across Sushi Genki. Ordered a take out order and was amazed at how inexpensive it was. So I ordered more and it still only came to $21.00.
Food was some of the very best we ever had the pleasure to eat. If you love Sushi, you must try this place.

We felt like sushi on a stay in Penticton and found this little place. The food was great and so was the service. Definitely recommend.
