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...More

Great value Japanese food. Lots of variety at a very reasonable cost. Wish some of the other islands had a look at these guys. Nothing in Waikiki along the beach anyway like this.

Genki Sushi is closed in Lihue. There's a major refitting going on. It will probably take a couple more months making it unlikely that it will reopen before November of 2015. Other locations are up and running - and just as good as ever.

If I am out running errands and get hungry, Genki has been a go-too ever since my Oahu days. It's quick, fun and relatively healthy food.

Casual outing and when you're craving some sushi, Genki is the place to go. You get basic rolls without the fancy shmancy stuff. Plain and simple!

Family friendly. Daily specials. Service varies at times. Almost all the time, you need to add your name to a waitlist as there are no reservations. Located in a shopping mall and is one of about 3 sit down restaurants. Many other non-fish items to...More

Sushi is good. The conveyor belt needs to be rotated out. Food is sitting too long. 4 rotations and that sushi needs to be removed and placed in the back for table side orders or create a 1/2 off rotation that once the belt has...More
