I decided to go eat at Genki with a friend after reading some very positive reviews. Not sure how those reviews came together. The staff was friendly and the place itself is not bad, but the food was very mediocre, the all you can eat formula for 30€ [excluding drinks, dessert and coffee] makes you spend at least 35€ for...

The food was excellent, so were the waiter and the waitress! We had lunch in this restaurant and the sushi was very good. Bad mark for the water: we paid 6€ for a bottle of water!!! That's why I'll give 4 stars instead of 5!

If you like Japanese cuisine and have a good appetite, just try this one. The easiest and best option is to go for All you can eat with different kind of sushi!

Trust me. Don't go to shabu shabu or sumo, genki is definitely the place to be for all you can eat sushi. It's fresh and rice and fish ratio's are great. portions are smaller so you can try more flavours! I also love their tofu dish! Nothing authentic about all you can eat, but so for my bias is either... More

Great restaurant, friendly and helpful staff to explain the rules of Genki eat as much as you want which is a great value for money and quality of food! Presentation is immaculate and elegant. Flavours are authentic and there is so much to choose from. Great for lunch or dinner. Wouldn't go anywhere else for my sushi!

first of all, the staff was very friendly!! food justifies the price of 30€. if you want to visit the restaurant with more than 2 people, a reservation upfront is highly recommended. we tried to eat all 5 rounds of foods, no chance... If you have appetite for sushi, Genki is a must visit in Amsterdam!
