“Good sushi!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Great place to try many things at an affordable pricy.
Cool technology, and I leave full everytime.
Easy to operate the ordering screens, and tons of options.
Many pubs located in the area.
If you google this restaurant you will find many blog posts detailing what to do, etc if you want to know what to expect...But the process is pretty straightforward.
I will visit again the next time I'm in Tokyo.^^

“Quality sushi at reasonable price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014 via mobile

First day at shibuya my friends recommended us to have dinner at genki sushi. At a glance it looks like ordinary sushi store from outside. Once got inside, we amaze by the concept and technology the restaurant using. Food is okay, service not bad, and concept is brilliant.

“fun, cheap sushi in Tokyo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

While no one will mistake Genki Sushi for Jiro, Genki Sushi is a great tourist destination restaurant in Tokyo. Genki Sushi is in Shibuya, a bustling place of activity, especially if you are younger. While not the "best" sushi in Japan, it is probably better than most places in the States. Genki Sushi is a "kaiten" restaurant, but instead of a conveyer belt, you order from a touch screen and a motorized trolley brings your food to you, a very neat fun way to have your food brought. It also ensures that the sushi you eat has not been sitting on a conveyor belt for a few hours. The touch screen is in multiple languages so you order what you want, when you wnat it. Tea is free. Best part is the prices. The "normal" sushi, which includes some tuna, is 129 yen for two pieces. I had 20 pieces of sushi, including toro, hamachi and uni and beer for approximately 2500 yen. If you are visiting Tokyo, and don't want to spend 35,000 yen at a Ginza sushi restaurant, or don't want to eat sushi for breakfast at Tsukiji, Genki Sushi is a good choice.

“Very cute and high technology restaurant in Shibuya”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

Almost everything in the restaurant is computerised. Unlike the typical kaiten sushi(sushi conveyor belt), you have to order from the computer and your order will automatically reach you in few minutes. For those who can't speak Japanese, not to worry. You can change the language setting to English. The price isn't too expensive. As a relatively big eater, I spent less than 1000 yen.

“A fun lunch sushi option- great for westerners.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

I stumbled upon Genki sushi by accident (but noted later that night that it was in fact on my list of ‘to-eat places’ in Tokyo). It’s a really fun introduction to sushi for westerners. I’m a big fan of Japanese food, however I’ve never been able to get past my aversion to raw fish. Genki sushi has many options- both cooked and vegetarian- to ensure that I was thoroughly well feed. Every person gets their own counter and screen (with an english option) to assist with their selection. There are MANY different food options- nigiri, maki, miso, salads, American style side dishes, soft drinks and booze. All which you order by touch and they are promptly made and delivered by a speedy conveyer system. I really enjoyed the fried prawn nigiri, and the corn maki. Items are well prices- most starting at 120 Y and the most expensive at 560Y. A great fun lunch option.
