This place is popular because it is inexpensive. Quality s OK for the price. Kids love the revolving dishes.

“Go for the novelty more than the quality of sushi.”
Reviewed 30 January 2013

After WWII, American health officials drove sushi, what had been a blue-collar street food, inside and right up the social ladder. Conveyor sushi was a break through and brought sushi back to the masses.

I went to Genki (Kaneohe) to experience this bit of history and the novelty of the little colored plates chugging around the room. The sushi was okay, the service barely okay. I had fun, but didn't think the price stacked up well against the product.

For fresher, cheaper and tastier sushi, walk past Foodland and order at Kozo.

“Fun eats and good too!”
Reviewed 3 January 2013

We have gone several times since we have been on Maui. Not only is the food really good but it's fun to go there too! The traveling belt goes around the restuarnt and your choices go by so you can pick off the belt or you can oder. The best of both worlds!! Wish there was one in Vancouver Canada. We would drive the 2 1/2 hours just for dinner there!

“This location sucks”
Reviewed 24 July 2012

Don't waste your time going here. The rice was hard due to some of the items being pulled directly from the fridge to your plate. The service was absolutely horrid. I always leave a tip, but in this situation we chose not to. We ordered off the menu as soon as we sat down. We then watched everyone who was seated after us get their food before we even got our miso soup. When the waitress finally came to us (without any of our order) she said she was sorry but she forgot about us!! What kind of waitress tells their guests they were forgotten?? She finally ran over then brought back our miso soup. The rest of our order started coming out but guess what...it was wrong. We sent back items we didn't order and had to remind the waitress what our order was. Very horrible experience. Go to Kapahulu...that is the best one I've been to. This location should be removed from the chain as it is a disgrace.

“It's A Sushi-O-Rama!”
Reviewed 17 June 2012

This location in Kaneohe, at the Windward City Shopping Center, isn’t far from where we used to live, so we ate here often.
Every time since we’ve left, we make a pilgrimage when ever we come home for a visit!
It use to be BYOB, but that is no longer the case.
You can sit either at the counter in front of the conveyer belt going around the restaurant,
carrying those tasty small plates, or at a booth (we prefer a booth, more room to spread out). So grab your chopsticks and some pickled ginger and let’s grind bruddahs and sistas. We usually begin our sushi-o-rama with a bowl of Miso Soup and Edamame, then move on from there. It's a help yourself place, as a plate goes by, if you like the looks of it, grab it!
I know that it’s considered boorishly American, but we do so love our Wasabi mixed in a small dipping dish with some Shoyu or Soy Sauce
(and no they didn’t have any Aloha Brand, bummer)
and then dunk your chopstick full of goodness in it, YUM!!
My husband likes his, “nose hair singe-ingly” hot with Wasabi.
The skilled Shokunin or sushi chef, made some scrumptious morsels
like Gunkan Ahi Poke, a little spicy but so delicious.
Sushi isn’t just fish, seedless Cucumber or Kapa Maki is a favorite of ours.
And it’s not all rice either.
Here we have Baked Mussels and deep fried Garlic Chicken in a lovely sweet-savory-tangy-garlic-soy-sauce.
You pay by the plate color and we did 19 in total, that was NOT a record for us.
It’s so nice in this type of restaurant, you eat a little, drink some tea, watch the different plates going by waiting for your desired dish, you chat, and plain have a good time at your leisure, no rush and not expensive either.
