“OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2012

Asian food that is good, and a restaurant that has had a good following in Saskatoon. It is busy, and the food is typical.

“Chinese food not quite worth the wait”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2012

This restaurant has huge booths that provide a lot of privacy while you eat. That's the main plus. The food is decent and not overpriced. But on a recent visit we waited interminably for someone to take our order and then interminably again to get the food. I was about to start eating the food left behind by other patrons when ours finally came. And they do need to resurface the tables.

“Used to be our favorite restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2011

We used to go to the Genesis at least 3 times out of 5 restaurant outings. We have decided to stop eating there because we noticed that the restaurant was unclean. You can see food stains on the vertical columns on the sides of the booths, there are food bits on the walls, the table surfaces are wearing out, all the dinnerware is extremely scratched, and the food just doesn't seem to be as satisfying as it used to be. The steamed rice is not good at all, they used to use really good rice but lately it has been soggy stuff with no good flavor.
The restaurant is in serious need of a big cleanup and a renovation. I give them a bad review because they have let it go too long before doing something. When they clean it up we will go back.

“Our favorite place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2011

This is the most fantastic dim sum asian restaurant - not just in Saskatoon, but in the many places I've traveled to. My friends, coworkers and family visit often and have never had a bad meal!
