The cleanliness of this place is not good -- usually the tables are not wiped clean and there may be bits of roe on the table or seat. It also has a funny smell. However, since there are not really alternative sushi joints nearby, it is either this or supermarket take-out sushi to satisfy your sushi craving.
Cheese with eel roll (芝士鳗鱼卷): Either this or the Boston roll (salmon with cheese) is one of my must-orders at Genki and did not disappoint.
Caramelized fried sweet potato (大学芋): Quite well done except unfortunately it is served cold -- I prefer the way it is served in Chinese restaurants which is hot with threads of malt. The outside skin is crispy and coated in caramel and the sweet potato inside is sweet and soft
Steamed egg custard: The quality of this is usually good, light and flavorful.
Soft shell crab hand roll (软壳蟹手卷): I like ordering the hand rolls as they are made on the spot. This one though was kind of a let down --- the deep fried crab was cold and soggy, and the seaweed was almost impossible to bite through (???)
Service is non-existent, impossible to get attention whether or not the restaurant is full. The chefs making the sushi looked tired and despondent
All in all, this is OK if you want to satisfy your sushi craving but definitely not worth the long snaking queues during lunch and I try to avoid too much raw fish here given the cleanliness (lack thereof) of the place!
