“It is a run down wannabe sushi-joint without any owners present.”
Review of Genki Sushi

The details are too pathetic to mention.
Rest assured, there is a need for management to step in and guide the golden cow by the horns... Be prepared to feel like you should be grateful for any semblance of attention from the waitstaff. Don't pick the first thing that strikes your fancy on the conveyor belt!

It has been there since before you arrived.

Genki Sushi provides a great assortment of sushi at wonderful prices. Items are priced by the color of plate. You can grab from a conveyer-belt or order directly. (I recommend ordering directly so you know its fresh). Atmosphere is okay, nothing special. This is a wonderful place to go if you are craving sushi, and don't want to spend a fortune. I like to come here often, but don't expect amazing service - simply friendly workers doing their job. Overall, Average.

Genki in Kukui Grove Mall is a nice, local affordable quick stop for the family. It's been a local fav at the mall for awhile now, and due to popularity, it is sometimes crowded. It's a Japanese 'quick style' sushi place with a rotating belt sushi offerings, and also hot 'for order' dishes as well as 'to go' sushi and hand rolls. . . They also have mochi ice cream, red velvet cupcakes, peanut butter-chocolate cupcakes, and cheese cake for dessert. . . (But if you want coffee with the dessert, just know that there is NO COFFEE served here! I have seen some tourists ask for this, so I am mentioning it here so nobody gets dissappointed later if they really want coffee with dessert.)

If you come at one of the busier times, dont get discouraged if you see a long line-just get on the waitlist right away because it's worth it! There wouldnt be a line if the place wasnt good, right? . . The prices are right and the food quality/quantity are decent for the price. (When I worked near the mall I used to come here for lunch nearly everyday)

If your vacation is more than a week and you really like the food here, remember to ask for a yellow Genki card when you pay at the register. If you dine 5x, you'll get a free 'black plate' when you come back next time! It's worth about $5 off your bill.

Dont expect anything exotic here, but the sushi is good. If it looks like it has been going around on the belt a few times just ask for a fresh one, they will bring it to your table. Not much for atmosphere, but a great lunch option. For the price you pay, I would gladly give up the song and dance at other sushi joints.

In stead of going out for dinner my wife and I like to occasionally go here around 1600 for takeout food and bring it back to our B&B. The sushi is always fresh and you can't beat the price! But don't go for ramen or other hot foods because the noodles won't survive the trip back to your hotel.
