We were greeted warmly by the staff. The staff were attentive and helpful but we were extremely disappointed with the food. The sushi rolls were significantly smaller than the rolls at the old location. Even my wife noticed the very small portions and for that reason, we will not return. Not the fault of the staff at all. They were... More

My wife and I have been eating at this and just about every Genki Sushi for years. When we first started, we loved the taste and value that Genki offered. Now, many years later, they are raising their prices and dropping their quality. Last month, we ate here and the bill for the two of us came up to over... More

Prices in Waikiki can be ridiculous for 'dining', so we have learned that a sizeable lunch means little needed for dinner. One of our 'musts' in Waikiki is Genki Sushi at the Ala Moana! The sushi is alway fresh....and their new system that delivers your order in a race car is fun for adults and kids! For $30 we can... More

Kaiten sushi (sushi on a moving belt) is good considering the price. However, I will never go to this place again, EVEN IF IT'S FREE, because of the lack of sanitation. I saw workers at this place go into the restroom, use the facilities, and NOT WASH THEIR HANDS. I reported this to the manager, but his attitude was casual... More

I'm not big on sushi but the chicken teriyaki is always my go to here! Ice cream mochi is way over priced but I understand they have to make money. 2 pieces is $4, at the store you can get a box of 6 for $4.78!

Genki Sushi is fun! The Kaneohe restaurant is normally crowded be ready to wait. The Japanese dishes ordered on the ipad are delivered fast on the automated toy race car or bullet train. You know how much your dinner will cost as you add it up by the color of the plates. The karage chicken is delicious. The miso soup... More

The concept is so much fun - sushi on little plates, color coded by price that travels by your table on a conveyor belt. However, this is not great quality sushi - "cafeteria" quality at best. Hello, corn sushi? That's just gross. The calamari was super rubbery as well. If you are sitting at the end of the line, it... More

I visited both Honolulu locations 6 times during my monthlong visit and found both to be excellent values for the money spent. The staff is very accommodating and friendly, and the sushi is fresh and tasty. You can spend $10 for lunch and go away very satisfied. Usually not a wait but the Ala Moana location can get busy around... More

Although they have a Sushi carousel, staff is always happy to take individual orders. Large menu including small poke bowls, tempura dishes, soup) simple system (five price levels for all dishes. We liked the quality, service and the price.
