Great sushi! Nice decor too!
The wall is kind of empty. Suggest to hang some nice Japanese painting on the wall. Otherwise, great food and good service!
Food is good and Freshly prepared.Service is good. I love the Banana Dessert.
I liked it a lot. It was clean, had good food and good service. What more can you ask for?
Order was messed up twice, sushi was below average quality. Nice atmosphere though.
The best sushi I ever had in Ottawa! I also enjoy the shrimp tempura and will be back again.
Good is excellent!
Great shrimp tempura! The tea is very nice to go with the food. The noodle is excellent. The banana ice-cream is fantastic.
I work at 160 Elgin and didn't detect this Japanese restaurant so close to my office. I had lunch last week and enjoyed the lunch very much. I brought my family to Genji last Saturday for dinner. My daughter wanted chicken tempura which is not on the menu. The chef had it made for my daugther. She was so happy. Thanks to the chef who made the chicken tempura for my daughter. She was very happy.
Just wanted to tell Genji folks that I am your loyal customer since your grand opening. I come to your restaurant every week (the one who already wears the cap). I tried your beef teriyaki, salmon teriyaki, chicken teriyaki and black cod teriyai so far. I like them all. Good food with beer is a treat for me after a busy day of work.
Awesome sushi and sashimi! I had a great time and good conversation with the sushi chef.
Great food and great services. Genji is now one of my favorite restaurants. Keep on the good work and don't increase your price!
Some of the Sushi I could not find it from other Japanese reaturant. I
think the chef created and designed by himself. Taste good and delicious!
I liked the banana dessert too which is excellent.
I had my early Valentine's dinner last night at Genji with my husband. I have to tell you that we love the food, we love the decor and we love the price. We had a great time! Thanks for taking the picture for us!
We went to Genji on our Valentine day. The dinner was delicious. We had a great time! Thanks for the rose for my wife. Will be back for sure.
Excellent sushi with nice presentation!
I have been looking for a good Japanese restaurant in Ottawa after my return to Ottawa from Japan. I tried Genji Japanese restaurant last Friday. I am so happy that I have found one. Your sushi presentation is excellent. It is an art work! The black cod teriyaki is the best I have eaten in Ottawa. I just wanted to convey my appreciation that I enjoyed the food very much. Keep up the good work! I will be back and see ya soon!
I just want to tell you folks reading this that if you haven't been to Genji Japanese restaurant in downtown Ottawa, you are missing a lot!! The food presentation just reminds me of the food I ate at Princess cuisine ship.
We went to Genji for dinner on Monday night based on our friend's recommendation. We were the first two arriving at the restaurant. My girl friend wanted me to leave and choose another one since she was not confident about going to a restaurant without customers. I insisted to go in anyway (didn't like to drive and park again). After trying out the first bite of sweet potato maki, both of us smiled at each other. The sushi was outstanding! Monday night must not be a busy night. Few customers came in later. But the food is a treat to us. We will be back again to try out other food in the menu!
I like the food. The service was very good. The Chef is friendly and proud of his food. Sushi was great and fresh. Location is in a quite area.
Amazing food and good price!
It was my first time to try out the delicious fruit salad sushi! The strawberry color with grapefruit colour together just make the sushi cubes look so good. I will be back for more. Great time, great food, and great services.
Fabulous sushi!!!!!!! I finally find my best Japanese restaurant in Ottawa.
100% agree. The best sushi I've ever tasted in Ottawa. Great service and nice decor!
Good price and delicious sushi!
I go banana with the fried banana dessert. Yummy food here. Keep up the good work!
We enjoy every aspect of the meal tonight! Trendy place as well.
Very nice place for a relaxing dinner. The food was great!
Everything was perfect: the food was delicious, the service was attentive, the ambiance was friendly and the decor was cosy. Genji is now one of my favourite spots.
Yummy sweet potato maki!
Great place to impress your date!
A hidden gem in Ottawa. Great food!
One of the best sushi places in Ottawa. Sweet potato maki is my favouite. I can eat the tempura banana dessert every day. Yuymmy food.
We went there on a Saturday evening. The service was great until the restaurant was full. All of us agreed the tempura was the best we had in Ottawa but the rice of the sushi was not cooked properly. Or the chef was not using the proper type of rice.
Genji has the best sushi in Ottawa!!!!
Establishment's Comments on this review:
thank you and please come again.
Very good sushi! Enjoy the food there!
very good sushi indeed!
I went with a group of friends and family from Sydney Australia, Hong Kong and Toronto. We were all impressed!
I visited from Brisbane, Australia and we have some very good Sushi restaurants there. I have not been able to find a good Sushi restaurant since I have been here (4th time here in 2 years - spent at least 6 months here). This Genji Restaurant is the best I have seen, and eaten at, so far. A little expensive though. Been to a few of those ALL U CAN EAT ones and been bitterly disappointed with them all - a lot of food but not much quality. The best so far.
