Genki Sushi Set 1 ($16.50)

Roughly translated from the Japanese language, the word “genki” means “vigor.” So, if you’re seeking stamina in the new year, or really any time at all, Genki Sushi is a super source for invigorating sushi, sashimi, soups and salads. And there’s a sizable selection of sides, sweets and sodas for the sinfully self-indulgent.

Thanks to a colorful menu of more than 120 items and a fun delivery system that delights old, young and everyone in between, Genki Sushi is one of Hawaii’s most popular sushi restaurants.

Genki Sushi Set 3 ($24.50)

Genki’s charming logo — a frowny little face in sunshine yellow — graces eight locations on Oahu as well as stores on Maui, Kauai, and Hawaii island.

According to a company statement, the frowny face is a visual representation of Genki Sushi’s corporate concept, which embraces health, happiness and warmth through the image of “a child growing toward the future.”

Spicy Tuna Set ($17.50)

After debuting in Japan in 1990, Genki Sushi opened its first Hawaii store three years later, thrilling guests with its unique conveyor-belt delivery system, the kaiten. Twenty years later, Genki Sushi’s first Bullet Express, named for Japan’s high-speed trains, debuted at Ala Moana Center. Now found at most of its Hawaii stores, the double-rail system delivers sushi, sashimi, and other treats on surfboards, trains, space shuttles and Formula One race cars.

Tuna Salad Set ($9)

If your day is too busy for a ride on the Bullet Express, you can get your sushi to go. Check out Genki Set 1 ($16.50), a selection of 10 delicious pieces, highlighted by Spicy Tuna, Ika, Tamago and Tako. Genki Set 3 ($24.50) is a generous collection that includes Ebi, Unagi, Salmon, Spicy Tuna, Tamago and Inari.

Tamago Set ($7.50)

For those who just want plenty of one good thing, Spicy Tuna Set ($17.50) includes 10 pieces of your favorite sushi, hot enough to make you smile. And if mayonnaise is your jam, go for Tuna Salad Set ($9), as it comes with 10 pieces of the creamy creation.

Customers wanting something other than seafood can opt for Genki’s Tamago Set ($7.50), which features four pieces of Tamago and four pieces of Inari.
