Worst sushi in Texas – I ordered the salmon bento box and the salmon was uncooked. Half of the food on the concession belt were not covered. Major health risk with customers coughing on the food. There was no offer of reinbursement, so we walked out. If you want a good sushi place go to Tomo off the 75 in Plano.
I am from California. Trust me...I know my sushi!
North Dallas Japanese restaurant serves sushi and hibachi steak in a casual family-friendly environment. – The Scene
The name 'Genki' meaning vigor and energy is reflected in the bright yellow happy face logos painted on the windows. Inside, cherry blossom paper lanterns hang like glowing moons above the sushi bar. Plastic mock sushi samples and bottles of Japanese sodas and sake scattered on the motionless conveyor belt act as a visual menu. The kitschy and informal environment attracts families and workers in the area.
Salmon and yellowtail sushi are fresh with good solid execution. The hard-to-find Amaebi (sweet shrimp) sushi indeed lives up to its name. Crisp tempura is presened in a basket like fish and chips. The Volcano roll: scallops, mushrooms, crawfish tails, crabmeat and smelt roe, baked in a spicy sauce on top of a California roll is fiery hot. Put out the flames with the Japanese mochi dessert--sweet mango or green tea ice cream wrapped in a chewy, glutinous skin.
Hits: The abundance of high chairs and a change table in the bathroom make this a good spot to introduce children to Japanese fare.
Misses: While the owners are warm and friendly, they sometimes missed anticipating diner's needs. Given the relaxed ambiance, some of the specialty rolls leaned towards too pricey ($12.50 and up).
Not like Hawaii – We first experienced this restaurant in the Hawaiian Islands. We were very excited to see it had come to Dallas. The experience was not quite the same, the rotating bar that you can usually pick up a colored plate with edible servings of food, had plastic imitations. So, needless to say, it was a little slower, and we had to order from a proper menu. They do have a bar seating where you can watch the food being prepared, as well as tables. The price is a little higher than Hawaii as well. Overall, not bad.
Great Sushi – One of our favorite sushi restaurants in Dallas. Great portions; unbelievably fresh; very friendly service. My wife and I go once a week.
Friendly owner and helpful chefs – I started eating at Genki soon after it opened and I'm hooked. Their fish is extremely fresh and the portions are always generous. I love the fact that the owner greets me each time I enter as if I were a friend and not just a wallet with legs. The chefs are always helpful when I can't decide what I'd like and I've never had a bad meal here. If you're not in the mood for sushi, the ton-katsu is amazing. If you're around the area at lunch, try the four-plate special. You get four plates of sushi (any kind, I think) for only 9.99.
quality sushi, great service, new and still unknown – We have been going to Genki Sushi for the last few weeks, since they opened.
We are amazed by the quality of sushi there. My husband is Japanese and very picky about his sushi, must be authentic. Well, he loves the food at Genki.
The fish is super fresh and they give you nice, thick pieces.
The rolls are high quality and also large with a large amount of fish, not mostly filler and rice as some other sushi places.
Our favorites are: Tuna roll (they make them with thick pieces of maguro), the hamachi roll (lots of yellowtail and good amt of scallions - yummy), the california roll, spider roll.
All of the sushi we have had there is excellent, ask the sushi man which fish is freshest on the day you go. We have always had good hamachi (yellowtail), maguro, tako, tai there.
The menu foods are also delicious. The katsu tastes fresh and homemade.
It is one of our favorite sushi places along with Sushi Sake, Blue Fish, and C Rolls.
