Recommended from a friend in cambridge. Although this place is a little out of the city of Boston, i would find a way to get to this sushi restaurant, there are good ones in Boston, but this one is fantastic in service, price, and quality of food.

The restaurant itself is really small and usually pretty crowded due to the lack of space. The sushi, however, is very very good! It can be a little bit expensive, but it is definitely completely worth it. If you love sushi, then definitely check this place out! Maybe if you can get it to go and find another place to sit down and eat it, or go home, then you may be more comfortable if you don't like tight spaces.

Genki Ya makes great sushi. It can be quite expensive if you order a lot of their special rolls, but they are very tasty and adventurous. I prefer this place to Mr Sushi, as they have more variety on offer. That everything comes from sustainable sources is a great bonus.

We have been going to Genki Ya for the past few years and love it each time we go. It is a small restaurant and the sushi is great quality and they have quite a variety of choices. Genki Ya has combinations of fish and other ingredients that we have not found in other sushi restaurants in the area. We highly recommend going their if you love sushi.

I'm a veggie who loves tofu, especially fresh tofu. Genki Ya just upped my definition of "best tofu".

Besides having good tofu, they had veggie variants of many dishes. Eg: veggie miso with no fish stock and veggie pot stickers. Both yummy.

Came to $15/head with tax and tip. Can't ask for better.
