Not the easiest place to find. The avocado and crab salad was really nice as was the nigiri. Would return.

Genki comes recommended for good sushi, with a fabulous setting too. Make sure you are sitting outside. Not ideal for small children. The wine list is more than adequate, with very friendly service.

Fabulous lunch at Genki - started with the adamame beans, tempura prawns and calamari - all delicious and then the mixed platter, which was great - good mix of style and content. All topped off with some lovely wine. Great courtyard venue too.

This is a small cosy little sushi restaurant in Stellenbosch. You need to book otherwise you might not get a table. Owner is hands on and waiters provide friendly service with good recommendations. Top quality food thats well presented. We had a wonderful night out and we will be back.

Nice evening with a couple of friends. The sushi had only three kinds of fish: Tuna, salmon and as "linefish" cape salmon. The maki were an endless variation of avo and mayo. Tasted ok, but it did not come even close to what sushi can be. Somewhat more honest food: The fried octopus and the selection of dumplings. The service... More

As Asians, we have been looking for authentic Japanese food in South Africa for long. We were not disappointed with this one. This little place is hidden in a courtyard. We sat outside under the trees, and we had some great sushis, salad and hot food. Service was a bit slow but was acceptable if you were on a holiday... More

We sat on an outside table in the Square just outside the restaurant. The restaurant was very busy but the owner was cool, calm and collected despite a large table with many different requests. We ordered the Dim Sum (Salmon) delicious and their signature california rolls encased in tempura batter. I have never tasted anything SO delicious. Please try it... More

We enjoyed our dinner at Genki sitting at an outside table on a beautiful wind-still summer evening. But the food took really long- probably about 45 minutes and when we ordered more sushi we waited again for another 45 minutes. The sushi, however, was really good. My favourite was the tempura sushi - try the boy and girl rolls! I... More

We went again to Genki, and cannot summarize. All identical to what I said previously. This is really a hidden gem. Keep it up!
