Not just super fresh sushi, but the rest of the menu is full of flavours. The Miso soup is delicious. The Tempura Prawns are always a winner. Their specials on the evening were plentiful, we chose the Tempura Squid Heads which were top notch. With...More

We found this place on the web after buying a bottle of wine that apparently paired well with sushi. It's really easy to miss Genki because it's pretty well hidden in the courtyard between dorp en pleinstreet. Glad we found it though, because the service,...More

We didn't expect to find a sushi restaurant in the heart of a town like Stellenbosch in South Africa, so were pleasantly surprised. There were tables inside, but it was a lovely day and we were happy to eat outside at one of the few...More
