I have eaten at Genki once and thought it was good...only because I ordered it online and then didn't get to eat it for almost two hours later....it was good. The online ordering was simple and easy to use. I decided to take a friend to eat there seeing that we are both sushi lovers!! There isn't a place anywhere... More

We recently took my brother here for a sushi dinner while he was in town visiting from New Hampshire. It was one of two sushi restaurants recommended by my friend Katie who also strongly suggested that we make a reservation. I did so using Open Table and I am grateful to Katie for her suggestion. Friday night at 6:30 the... More

I came to this place because it was highly recommended here. I totally endorse that! This is not the fanciest restaurant in town, but the food and service certainly are the best! The chef is very friendly and open to adaptations, changes. The Menu is very good with tasty suggestions. The owner is always there with a big smile, visiting... More

We arrived at 12:30 to find restaurant 3/4 full. We've been coming here for over 5 years and have experienced a change of ownership which resulted in a hike in prices but more specials being offered. The hostess arrived quickly and took our drink orders. We waited about 5 minutes for the solo waitress to take our order. We were... More

Made a last minute reservation as we were driving to the restaurant. We were seated the moment we arrived with great service that rushed an appetizer of pork gyoza to our table as we were starving. We never felt rushed and the food was perfect. I had the Chirashi sushi dinner and my husband had a variety of sushi rolls,... More

I called in an order, thankfully they were still open during the crazy weather. I ordered the Katsu Don (pork) and ended up getting Unagi Don (eel) which is an okay mix up for me! And my son also enjoyed the eel, probably more than he would have the pork. This could have been mixed up because of my poor... More

This place is friendly and clean with attentive servers and a modest and comfortable decor. The sushi was quite good, created by Chef Danny. Chef Danny is Chinese, and a trained sushi chef. Although I was disappointed that we were not offered free pots of green tea with our meal, at the end of our lunch, free homemade caramels were... More
