Genki Sushi continues to serve as an innovator in the culinary community after initially popularizing kaiten sushi — the popular Japanese offerings served on a revolving conveyor belt.
With its beloved sushi delivery system and an expansive menu that includes daily and seasonal specials, Genki Sushi continues to take Japanese dining culture to new heights across the globe.
Some Genki Sushi locations across the state offer the double-rail, “bullet train” sushi delivery configuration for convenient, ultra-fast ordering. Diners can place orders via an updated, lightweight touch-screen panel and receive their fresh sushi favorites at their table.
“Genki has always remained affordable and family-oriented,” says David Moon, director of purchasing and operations for Genki Sushi.
With nine locations on Oahu, as well as multiple eateries across Kauai, Maui and Hawaii Island, Genki serves up flavorful sushi creations in a fun, welcoming atmosphere.
“We’re committed to providing our customers with the latest technology and improving on everything we do within a family-friendly environment,” Moon explains.
Diners may choose from a host of delicious sushi selections, rice bowls topped with local favorites, bento sets and even tasty desserts. Genki offers a wide variety of nigiri, gunkan and roll sushi, from simple favorites to extravagant creations. Some of the popular offerings include Seared Spicy Ebi ($3.15), Vegetable Spring Roll ($2.55), Summer Roll Salmon ($3.15) and Shogun Roll ($4.15) — a battered and deep-fried bite with ebi and a savory, spicy sauce.
“We evolve and try our best to keep customers happy,” says Moon. “We continue to look at updating the menu in the near future. However, customers have their favorites, so we will make sure to keep those on the menu.”
Just in time for the highly anticipated Super Bowl matchup and accompanying potluck parties, Genki Sushi is rolling back prices on its popular sushi platters. Starting on “Super” Sunday, Feb. 5, Genki’s platter selections will be discounted anywhere from $7 to $12 off the regular price. The popular Party Platter A, which includes 50 pieces of assorted sushi varieties, will be available for just $45 ($48 at the Ala Moana and Neighbor Island locations) — a sizable discount when compared to the original price of $57. Party Platter B ($30/$33) will be available for $8 off the original price, while Party Platter C ($30/$33) and Combination Platter ($15/$16) will save diners $7 each.
Genki Sushi also is offering a 10 percent discount for kamaaina, military and seniors ages 55 and older. The discount is available Sunday through Thursday on dine-in orders only. As a reminder, diners must show valid photo identification and this offer may not be combined with any other discounts or promotions.
