If you are looking for a dining experience, don't bother. I agree with a previous reviewer that this place is in need of a good cleaning. If you like bright florescent lighting, uncomfortable booths and restrooms in need of attention, then this is the place for you. Did I mention the food is average at best?
There is way too many choices in today's market place and if Genesis doesn't pick up it's game, it's days are numbered.

Genesis provides a family friendly environment. It's a good place to go with families and large groups. it's brightly lit, the booths are very large and hold 6 people. They also have a couple of private dining rooms for private parties. There is always a few people regardless of the time of day you go. The menu is extensive and you can order fresh dim sum at any time. The food is vacillates from very good to excellent. The portions are generous and the food is almost always very fresh and delicious. It is served piping hot and the service is efficient and fast. The decor is somewhat old and tattered around the edges but Genesis is the type of restaurant where you go to visit with family and friends and eat a lot of great food. The price is reasonable. The dishes range from $8 to $10 with some more expensive dishes. One plate of Singapore Fried Rice Noodles can easily feed 6 people. It's a restaurant worth visiting if you like Asian cuisine.

I love Dim Sum here and have been a patron of Genesis since the 90's. I agree with others in that the food selection for Dim Sum has narrowed and the food has become ok. The interior is very old and often dirty and needs an overhaul. I'd live to give my once fav place to eat in Saskatoon a better rating but can't until the spend some money on improving the interior and as election of food.

we decide to celebrate our family reunion on this restaurant. It was my first time to visit this restaurant and my first time to experience a horrible kind of service. The hostess manager is very very very rude! no manner! food is really great but arrived after one and a half hour! We will never go back and recommend this place!
