“Excellent Neighborhood Place”
Reviewed 4 March 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

It's a very small (neighborhood) place, but the sushi is unbeatable! I won't order from anywhere else.

“Yum”
Reviewed 18 January 2014 via mobile

I love sushi from Genki Ya!

Pros: they deliver! Sushi is fresh and delicious! Lunch prices are reasonable!

Cons: I always feel like I am inconveniencing my waiter when I dine in. Service is not great.

“Great little japanese restaurant”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

We were there on an early Saturday night, and the rest of the diners were mostly young couples. It was quiet and intimate. We had sushi, miso soup, and gyoza. All the food was great. The waitresses were very polite and attentive. For the quality of the food, the prices were very reasonable.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

Recommended from a friend in cambridge. Although this place is a little out of the city of Boston, i would find a way to get to this sushi restaurant, there are good ones in Boston, but this one is fantastic in service, price, and quality of food.
