Genki Sushi @ Sunway Pyramid
“I’ll be back”
It is a famous catchphrase associated with the movie “The Terminator”. But I would like to associate it with the welcome greetings of Genki Sushi back to Malaysia’s shore.
With the intro above, you could guess how old I am when I mashed The Terminator with fond memories of my dining experience with Genki Sushi back in the 90s. Back then, there was not much affordable Japanese dining available but Genki Sushi was an exception with quality food at great prices. Alas, I felt extremely upset when Genki Sushi was closed down more than a decade ago.
Well, my nostalgic heart did skip a beat when I learnt that Genki Sushi opened an outlet at Sunway Pyramid recently. A foodie like me would not waste the chance to revive back all the sweet memories. Therefore, a customary visit was done swiftly. How was the experience? Read on~
Genki Sushi Sunway Pyramid outlet – It’s a bright and fuss-free space, with simple setting of banquette seats and long counter seats in soothing earthy and white theme.
We were given our personal QR Code once we were seated and this is the ordering system that Genki Sushi is using to allow patrons to make order using their devices. Free one hour WIFI is provided too!

Apart from the new ordering system, Genki Sushi also proudly introduces the Kousoku Express delivery system, which designed after the Japanese Shinkansen bullet train. The “train” allows speedy delivery of food directly from kitchen to table, ensuring freshness, so no more plates of sushi plates revolving around the the conveyor belt!
Their extensive menu featuring all the essential items included sashimi, sushi, appetizers, assorted rolls, handrolls, tempuras, fried and grilled food, rice and noodles. One of the hightlight in their latest menu is the Dai Man Zoku selections, showcases sushi 1.5 times bigger than the standard sushi serving.
