“The best sushi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

Every time we visit Ottawa--about twice a year--we go to Genji's as a special treat. It's pricey, but the quality of the sushi is worth it. A very pleasant atmosphere, good service.

“Very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2012 via mobile

Very good and fresh food with a lot of choice on the menu. Whether you are a sushi lover, vegetarian or prefer meat, there is an option for everyone. You can either order à la carte or select an option from the various set menus. The only downside is a relatively inefficient - yet friendly - service: it is quite a challenge to get one of the only two waitresses' attention...

“Very Good Sushi....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2012

We ate here with a group of 8 on the National Capital Race Weekend....Had a very nice meal...we arrived soaking wet after a very severe thunderstorm hit us between parking and our walk to the restaurant...the hostess immediately gave us napkins which was so kind...we appreciated the hospitality...the menu is large and there are items for the non-fish eater. Very fresh and the sake list is good. We were there when another extremely large group was there and the servers did a decent job of keeping things going all things considered. I would love to go back when it is quieter though. When making reservations I would ask if there is a large party that night and if there was I would probably try a different night otherwise...would go again...parking is tough to find...

Lots of butterfish items....yum!!

This was my first visit to a Japanese restaurant and I really enjoyed the food. I even managed to use the chopsticks!
