Translated to mean “revolving,” the stellar sushi gained notoriety for being served on a conveyor belt. Local diners of all ages are invited “all aboard” the train as the Genki Su- shi “Bullet Express” con- tinues to bring satisfaction to patrons across Hawaii. The restaurant group has also introduced a new mo-
bile technology that allows guests at select locations, including Pearlridge Cen- ter, to order directly from their phones and pay for their orders with just a few clicks.
With eight locations on Oahu, including the re- vamped Pearlridge Cen- ter restaurant that recently opened on March 1, as well as eateries on Kauai, Maui and Hawaii Island, Genki Sushi serves up flavorful creations in a fun, fami- ly-friendly atmosphere. Diners may choose from a host of delicious sushi se- lections, rice bowls topped
with local favorites, bento sets, tasty desserts and beverages.
