“Taking the 'all you can eat' experience a little more upmarket”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2012

Like Dr Who's Tardis, Genki is much bigger once you get inside - so don’t be put off by first impressions. They do 'try' with mock flame lights to get your attention from the street, so worth investigating. Modern decor and pleasant layout with nothing looking dated in the main restaurant. Good quality fresh Japanese food and basically 22eu per person plus drinks etc.
This is going on our list of places to return to.

“Best Service, food, 110% satisfied!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2011

At first, my husband and I were a litte skeptisch....after all, from outside, no one can tell that the main hall is enormous! And for the price ( we found a little too cheap for a "All you can eat Jap") we doubted the quality of the food and service. The friendly service, the rapid and prompt food deliver and the quality of everything that was served made us certain that WE'LL DEFINETELY COME BACK!!!!!

“All stye and no substance”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2011

Friends & I went to Genki as part of Amsterdam restaurant week where, supposedly, top restaurants provide a 3 or 4 course meal for a fixed price of €27.50. We ended up at Genki after another restaurant could not honour my original reservation. The food was nice enough, a well-balanced mix of flavors starting with, what one friend called, a tiny square of chicken on toast. This was followed by 6 pieces of mixed sushi & sushimi then a beef dish accompanied by snow peas and fried lotus. Dessert was a small scoop of chocolate ice cream & a brownie with sauce in the middle. Overall the food was ok.

What lets this place down is the awful service. Staff run around, and I mean run around, creating an air of tension. They all wear stupid ill fitting earpieces to communicate with the kitchen that is one floor above. Maybe it is just me however I like my waiter to pay attention to me, not some voice in their ear. After chasing down someone for our wine order, it was promptly forgotten only to have a glass of wine spilt over one friend (no freebie or discount). After waiting far too long between the 1st and 2nd course I asked when it would arrive only to have a waitress shrug her shoulders and say "I don't know, I guess I should go ask!".

The building looks like it used to be large shop or nightclub. The lay out is a combination of bar and restaurant (with smoke room) and as a result lacks a cosy feeling. We will certainly NOT be going back.
