Not a good place to eat! The food goes around on a conveyor belt and you don't know how long it's been on the belt. I ate there and got sick. I don't recommend this place. Sorry

Genki sushi is not that great. There is pre-made sushi the rotates past you on a conveyer train. Kids like it though since kids like trains. It is fast so if you are in a hurry and are at the shopping center it is a viable option for a meal.

Regular sushi fare at fairly decent price. Don't expect top class sushi. Had to pickup something quick and stopped by here. Not some place you can't miss in the beautiful island of Kauai.

This restaurant is in a shopping mall, which kills the ambiance. The conveyor belt set up was really fun and unique. The service was very slow, and they did not like it if you needed anything. My mom ordered chicken and it took forever for the food to arrive. I ate the fish and it was tasty, but my mom... More

Went there for lunch. Place was pretty crowded. Staff was friendly. As we were seated at the tail end of the conveyor belt, we did not get much of a selection. Ordered off the menu but that took a long time. I got the combination trio B. It was good. Will go back.

The sushi isn't the best quality, but for the price it is hard to beat. Basically the food moves around a belt and you help yourself and at the end you'd pay the total bill according to what you ate. Very interesting and worth visiting.

This is a great place to experience a Japanese "Sushi Go-Round!" The price is not expensive as some Sushi bars can be. This is a good place to bring a family as they have a wide variety of Sushi and food on the conveyor. The food it's self is good! This is my idea of a quick lunch or family... More

This chain of sushi restaurants offers a wide variety of sushi and assorted Japanese tidbits. Watching the sushi dishes roll by on the conveyor belt at the counter makes you hungry and allows you to see the selections. Spam sushi is a local favorite. Table service is also available.
