It is not that great. The food is average and the service is okay. I don't recommend it. The food goes around on a conveyor belt and you simply pull whatever looks appetizing off of the belt. The service is slow and awkward.

we ate at Genki a few years ago on our last visit to Kauai and Maui. Then the food was not great, but tolerable. I ordered a platter to go last week, as we were in a rush and wanted to eat it as we drove to our destination. The service was high school amateurish and the wait time was way beyond tolerable. But it's the sushi itself that was most disappointing. The rice was nearly like rubber. The seaweed wraps felt and tasted like they had been sitting in the 'fridge for a week- tough and chewy. The taste was bland and unappetizing. We ended up throwing half of it out.

It is a conveyor belt type Sushi resturant that you may have seen around the world. The quality is fine and the price is very good for Kauai.
Service is always with a smile and special orders (within reason and supply) are welcome.
It is a "Gotta Go" kinda place.

The idea of sushi going round and round on a conveyor belt didn't sound like a good idea (how do you maintain temperature?), but it actually turned out to be a fun experience and the food (with the exception of the spam) didn't seem to stay on there long. The quality was good and the prices were reasonable. My wife and I ate enough to satisfy us for lunch and the bill was $27 including green tea. The sushi chef works in front of everyone (inside the looping conveyor) so you can see what he is fixing and grab some when it comes around. I'd recommend the place and would certainly eat there again.

This is a sushi-go-round but because we can in mid-day, there wasn't much food going around. The prices were great and we were able to order from a menu with a large variety of items (such with spam!). We paid by the color of the plates. It was a little dirty.
