Took a colleague to lunch here while shopping at the Japanese store in the same complex. A hidden location for a great sushi meal!

Very unique venue, to be held in the canteen of a Japanese elderly home. Pork cutlet curry on rice was amazing, and very sizeable portion too! First time trying agedashi MUSHROOM! Ya, it's awesome.

This was my first visit to Hi Genki Japanese restaurant. When I went for lunch on q Sunday, I was surprised with how full the restaurant was which indirectly suggests the food quality must be good. I ordered Bento Box (Chicken Teriyaki Bento) and really...More

So , we decided we wanted Japanese food and settled for this place based on others experience. Well my first thought was oh, it's on the ground floor of a high rise. Getting past the initial strangeness, it was positive from then on. Place was...More
