Not my kind of place

Given the variety and sheer abundance of Japanese cuisine available on the island of Oahu, it baffles my mind why anyone would ever go to Genki for sushi, or anything Japanese for that matter. While it might seem harsh, it is absolutely true to my experience the one time I stepped foot into Genki on Kapahulu.

The vast majority of the items that we had were cold since they had been rotating on the conveyor belt for so long. The service was sub-par and the prices are, in fact, NOT reasonable when compared to what’s available in the surrounding area (if you compare what you pay for what you get in return). For example, we tried their karaage chicken. It was cold and flavorless. To be honest, I can marinade, bread and fry chicken with mochiko flour or katakuriko (potato starch) far better than that!

To end on a constructive (and perhaps helpful) note, I would suggest trying the other two places in its vicinity: Izakaya Nonbei (slightly more expensive Japanese lounge across the street), which serves high-quality food and drinks if you’re looking for that extra touch of class or even Sushi-man on Waialae if you’re just looking for a cheap bite of something good.

While Genki might be the McDonalds of Japan, it cannot come close to stacking up to the other options that you’re given for Japanese food in Honolulu.

Karaage Chicken

See above.

Agedashi Tofu

Overly breaded, little actual tofu and the sauce was too sweet and Westernized.
