“Look no further for sushi in the wine lands”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

To start with the location on this lovely square is a big bonus in summer. The quality of the food matches the spot , wether it's local fish sushi, or whatever the menu offers. The prawn dumplings are superb and the shrimp tentacles with the seven spices mayo outstanding additions. Service is always good and efficient and the wine list compliments the food selection. Not excited about Japanese deserts. One of our regular lunch places when in Stellenbosch. Never been disappointed.

“Flavours Galore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

Not just super fresh sushi, but the rest of the menu is full of flavours. The Miso soup is delicious. The Tempura Prawns are always a winner. Their specials on the evening were plentiful, we chose the Tempura Squid Heads which were top notch. With sufficient space left for dessert, I had the Cream cheese Spring rolls with Ice Cream. Most proberly the best dessert Ive had at a restaurant in 10 years!!. New owners and same staff, Genki is surely the top Sushi spot in Stellenbosch. Make sure you take some warm clothes during winter, just in case you dont get an inside table.

“For quality sushi, but the real surprise is in the pud!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

A lovely spot in a Square in the centre of Stellies- this is a small and intimate venue for impromptu lunches and summer evening sushi with ice cold wine. They have the best quality sushi in Stellenbosch. Try the prawn tempura rolls and squid tentacles. In winter the soups are great and the desserts to die for. Go there just for the cheese cake spring roll - melt-in-the-mouth delicious!

“Great evening had”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014

Great place to relax in the centre of Stelenbosch.
Amazing variety and good prices on the wine list. Broad variety of Sushi which was pretty good, the Bad Boy I think was really not the best option to end off with as it was too doughy and made in a rush by the chefs that wanted to go home!
Great, attentive service, lovely evening had!
