    My girlfriend was overwhelmed by the combinations that can be gluten free in the Build a Bowl selections thanks to the extra info from manager! Sashemi was delicious, and the tuna and grilled shrimp bowls were flavorful. An experience better than imagined.. Genki is our new favorite Asian restaurant!

  • Good mix of sushi & other dishes

    Genki is a great location for a very good meal. It starts with a fantastic open air front on Highlands. They have some very good, unique rolls a well as plenty of other japanese dishes for those who aren't into sushi. We had a mixed group (which included a vegan) with varied tastes and everyone enjoyed their meal. Our server was also very attentive and on the ball. I'll definitely be back.

    I ordered the sashimi sampler as my dinner. There were three servings of sashimi. Each "serving" of sashimi was literally the size of my fist, and sliced into 4 one-inch slices. Waaay too thick. The Hamachi was ok, once I was able to slice it up into bite-sized pieces, the salmon was passable, but the tuna literally made me gag. It was almost as if it had been frozen, thawed, and re-frozen. Then, when it came time to pay the bill, their machine rejected three of our credit cards. Not our fault, theirs! Just a frustrating experience that we won't be re-living any time soon.

    You know, I've passed Genki for about a year now and finally decided to venture in . . . what a GREAT surprise! The staff are SUPER cool . . . the ambience is great, and the food was really pretty good! I picked a steamed shrimp and veggie option to keep up with my new year's resolution, and it was perfect. I'm definitely coming back, and think it may be a great regular spot. They have valet parking in the back, so bring an extra $3-5 to tip. Really, you'll like it, AND they take reservations on OpenTable - BONUS!

    I was pleasantly surprised to find a place that is open for late lunch with excellent quality food. It is always hard to find anything good after 2 pm. I'll definitely be coming back for more.

    We had a great time! Sushi was wonderful! Service was great, thanks Joel! Drinks were delicious! Atmosphere would have been just as good if u could not see the dumpsters from the patio.......a little more fencing would go a long way.

    Tried Genki 2 different times within the same week. Once with a small group and again with a large group. Both times everyone was extremely happy with their meals. The service was friendly and quick for a sushi restaurant. There were some very good specialty rolls with unique combinations. Overall a highly recommended place in a quaint little neighborhood of Atlanta.

  • Best sushi in town

    Dined on 6/8/2013
    Seriously, the sushi and rolls just melt In your mouth. There's no chewiness to it like a lot of other sushi that you'll find in town. Their noodle bowls are delicious as well-excellent taste and incredibly satisfying. Only downside were that the drinks were just ok, only tried a couple between myself and my finance but they got watered down pretty quickly. Regardless, this will be a new regular spot for us!

    Sushi roll was outstanding, Tuna used for the Summer Breeze entree was very bland. We would dine here again, but only if we were in the neighborhood. We would not drive into the city again specifically to eat here
