this place offers several nice veg dishes and will happily make brown rice with any sushi roll. Service and food are both very good. we've been to this location as well as there Brookline location. Same high quality in both locations.

Good menu selection of sushi. Some unique sauce flavors. Service very good, though I was there for lunch, and place was essentially empty. Will go back

Genki Ya is an authentic Japanese sushi restaurant. They have beautiful rolls and other menu options that are presented well and taste great also. I got the lunch special, and it was plenty of food for a great price.

Pictures on the menu are perfect for novices to Sushi and Sashimi. Selection is pretty standard with just a few esoteric menu items - but what they do, they do well. Only negative was atmoshphere - which truth be told, is not unlike most Sushi places - small and dark.

Having photos of all the sushi items on the menu is super helpful when ordering with kids. They don't totally understand what a "rainbow" roll or a "spider" roll is - this makes my life easier! Organic wine, organic salad (and lots of other organic items), delicious seaweed salad, delicious sushi and sashimi, quick service and gluten-free soy sauce made... More

There are a lot of restaurants here in Legacy Place in Dedham, but this one stands out. Some of the best sushi I have had, and really quick, friendly and courteous service. Order the double spicy tuna roll and dynamite. They both have a little bit of a twist on the common rolls and have extremely high quality ingredients. Definitely... More

Fresh is the unqualified requirement for sushi. The rice makes the best stand out. At Genki the rice is so light and flaky it challenges your chopsticks skills to keep your bites whole. The fish is not only fresh - it is generous. For example, the Nigiri pieces completely overwhelm the rice - just the way I like it. I... More

We liked our sushi and related items. I had seaweed salad, and that was very tasty. The variety of things you can order is remarkable. I'm not a sushi expert, but in my view what we had was quite good -- but not outstanding. I appreciate their efforts to offer organic.

Thank Dave S
