My fiancé and I visited at the end of March. We arrived later in the evening to a full house mid-week. The wait staff was very nice and it was definitely fun to watch the sushi chef work. You can tell how talented he is. The sushi was good and very fresh, my only complaint was the wait time. It... More

Our meals were katsu don (mom), tempura shrimp and vegetables (dad) and chef's sushi special (me). Everything was perfectly cooked, prepared, and presented. The prices were very reasonable too. A surprising find in... More

Loved this place! The sushi was phenominal, came with personal edamame & seaweed appetizer, and ended with free homemade caramels of many flavors (which were equally as delicious). The homemade soy sauce was delicious. Wish there was a restaurant in upstate NY like this one!

I have visited Genki multiple times and it is always consistent in both the food and the experience. The fish is always fresh and they have several homemade items from Wasabi to saki. Chef is always friendly and interactive even though he's very busy. He and his family are very welcoming and genuinely appreciate the business. This is a must... More
