What a terrific eatery! Haven eaten here many time, the food never disappoints. The sushi is always the freshest I have tasted and brilliantly prepared. It all just works. The dim sum is a must try. Great warm service and always bustling. The quaint atmosphere is amazing whether you sit inside or outside.

After many meals of lovely venison, I preferred something light. Genki was a very good choice. Excellent futo maki rolls and the cheese cake spring rolls was interesting.

We chose this venue based on reviews and because it was close to where we were. We were craving sushi, but were met with an average and loosely rolled sushi platter. The dumplings we had as starter were delicious, but the sushi disappointed.

Genki has really interesting and delicious options for vegan and vegetarian sushi. We called ahead and they veganised the tempura batter for us. It's our favourite sushi restaurant.

Food took time by Johannesburg standards, but the result, absolutely nothing to say. Food was wonderful, and service perfect. Genki is the type of restaurant that doesn't attract passers, but what a gem. It is definitely a must, and will be a stop over for me whenever I am in Stellenbosch. Always look at the specials on the board! I... More

I went to Genki earlier for a quick lunch, and they delivered very well. I had a very tasty chicken yakitori and chicken soba noodles which were both very tasty! Will be back to try their sushi next time!

Very, very good food. Served in a lovely courtyard. Staff friendly and efficient. The food is brilliant. The octopus is absolutely delicious. Wine great and very reasonable. I'd highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Stellenbosch.

Lovely place. Helpful staff. Good value and deliciously tasty sushi. Book early to secure an outside table, otherwise it's a bit hot inside. Great value for money.
