Genki Sushi continues to revolutionize the sushi game with its popular delivery system and an eclectic menu that includes daily and seasonal specials.
Taking the Japanese sushi tradition to new heights, Genki Sushi also offers tasty menu items to go, including delicious party platters.
Genki Set 1 ($16.50) is a hearty to-go selection with 10 assorted pieces including Spicy Tuna, Ika, Tako, Tobiko and Tamago. Spicy Tuna Set ($17.50) also is bursting with flavor, as 10 pieces of Spicy Tuna are packed in a convenient bento box to enjoy on the go.
Just in time for the bustling holiday party season and tail-gate get-togethers, Genki Sushi offers an array of sushi platters. The popular Party Platter A, which includes 50 pieces of assorted sushi varieties, is available for just $60 and is ideal for the entire ohana as multiple varieties such as Tekka Maki, Ahi, Ika, Tako and Ebi are featured. Party Platter B ($42) is another favorite amongst local diners as guests can enjoy an assortment of 42 pieces, such as California Roll and Inari.
“Genki has always remained affordable and family-oriented,” says David Moon, director of purchasing and operations for Genki Sushi. “We’re committed to providing our customers with the latest technology and improving on everything we do within a family-friendly environment.”
An innovator in the culinary community after initially popularizing kaiten sushi (translated to mean “revolving”), Genki Sushi rolls out its popular Japanese offerings conveniently on a conveyor belt. Most Genki Sushi locations across the state now offer the double-rail, “bullet train” sushi delivery configuration for easy, ultra-fast ordering via lightweight touch-screen panels.
With seven locations on Oahu, as well as multiple eateries on Kauai, Maui and Hawaii island, Genki Sushi serves up flavorful sushi creations in a fun, family-friendly atmosphere. Diners may choose from a host of delicious nigiri, gunkan and roll sushi selections, rice bowls topped with local favorites, bento sets, and even tasty desserts and beverages.
Some of the popular offerings include Poke Roll with delicious ahi poke and the Ultimate Trio, which features ahi, hamachi and salmon sushi in one convenient combo. Spicy Bomb is composed of the iconic spicy ahi blend atop sweet cone sushi for an intriguing contrast of flavor, while Sukiyaki Bowl includes a hearty portion of thinly-sliced beef cooked to perfection and presented upon a bed of rice.
“We evolve and do our best to keep customers happy,” says Moon. “We continue to update the menu as culinary trends change. However, customers have their favorites, so we will make sure to keep those on the menu.”
Genki Sushi also is offering a 10-percent discount for military members and seniors ages 55 and older. The discount is available Sunday-Thursday on dine-in orders only, and as a reminder, diners must show valid I.D. — this offer may not be combined with any other discounts or promotions.
