Not many sushi places in Atlanta comes close – This is place is def. one of Atlanta's best.
The owner Reid is the friendliest guy I know and he takes care of you when you are there. The customer service is the best in Fulton County hands down and not to mention the best sushi joint in the GAi area. I go there once a week and I have never been disappointed.
The price is right and the fish is so fresh that it's hard to stop eating it lol.
Came here for our 2 year anniversary and we were both VERY pleasantly surprised. We're both snobs when it comes to sushi and never have high hopes when it comes to exploring new places. Genki, however, kind of surprised us.
Location: We came here because we were staying in Buckhead in nearby hotel and it looked interesting.
Food: Everything was great from the curry and crispy eggplant to the sushi
Drink: We did our own sake tasting and ordered a couple of Gingo style bottles. We got hammered :)
Service: Our waiter was great. Very relaxed and helpful when it came to suggestions since it was our first time there.
Final: Can't wait to come back to Atlanta Great Foooooooood Great FFFFFFuuuunnnnnnn!
1st time today & not the last time. This place was amazing! I read the recent reviews about prices are higher, but the quality of fish was excellent. You pay for quality! The yellow tail was amazing, great portions & melted in your mouth. I had the hand rolls & sushi.
The manager even stop and answered all our questions about fish quality & how they order.
Thank you guys I will be back soon.
Had a GGGGreat time here last night, food wine and women!
This restaurant has THE best. sushi. ever.
My parents take me here every time they come down to visit me in ATL, because I love sushi to death, and they love sushi to death, and Genki has some of the freshest, most exquisite and melt in your mouth sushi dishes you will ever taste. Like seriously, you have not eaten real sushi until you've tried this place.
Basically, if you want good sushi - none of that Americanized California Roll shiz - come here. And get the omakase ("I'll leave it to you" in Japanese) - it's pricey, but the chef knows what he's talkin' about. (;
Had a great time with friends! Food was excellent, service too (and we had 9 people with a LONG order). Much better value than other sushi joints in Atlanta.
Will definitely be coming back soon!
Best Genki experience ever. Be ready for a long meal shared by the most discerning diners. We brought a bottle of sake but were shamed by the other patrons. There were multiple bottles of really good wine that were kindly shared by our dining neighbors. I'm talking about at least 6 bottles of good stuff that was opened for just a taste. Not to talk about the ridiculous good Scotch shared by another group of people. Wow, the alcohol we injested alone was amazing.
I won't go into detail of each portion of the meal because I feel I would do a poor job doing so. So many other reviews do a better job. I hate paying for bad food and don't mind the price tag at Genki. it is truly an experience. I can't wait to return!
Service is always extremely slow and not very attentive.... every time I've been there this is the case. The manager is rude and doesn't seem concerned about keeping long term customers. There are plenty of other sushi restaurants to dine at where they'll actually appreciate your business.
Creative Rolls, But Lacking In Basics – I like funky, creative sushi rolls as much as the next guy, but if a restaurant really wants to be a great place for sushi they have to be able to do the basics well, too. That means finding the freshest, highest grade fish possible, having excellent blade work from a skilled chef, and only using perfectly cooked and prepared rice. It's not like Genki does all these things poorly. They just don't do them especially well either.
If original maki and "create your own" noodle bowls are more important to you than top grade toro, then you'll probably love Genki. If not, I suggest you look elsewhere.
