Here’s a short guide to two famous restos in the city.
Genki Sushi, Hong Kong
Genki Sushi is highly recommended for its traditional Japanese specialties. True to its name, it is best known for its sushi and Japanese dining service.

This place is for sushi-lovers who’d have much delight sampling different flavors. The menu includes tuna and shrimp sushi, crab salad sushi, and corn sushi. California handrolls are also a specialty here. In every bite, you’ll enjoy the mix of seaweed, rice, avocado, and crab in a wrap. You might also want to try their seafood treats and other delicacies such as the salmon, whelks, and fish roe.
Good food is coupled with good service at a more affordable price, making it one of the favorite food chains for traditional Japanese cuisine. From Monday to Sunday, you can drop by the place from 11:30 am to 11:30 pm. However, you may see yourself lining up during lunchtime and weekends when there are usually plenty of customers.

You’ll be surrounded by bamboo, sandstone, glass, stainless steel, and marble decoration and furniture sets, which all add up to the restaurant’s appeal to customers who want good food and good ambiance.
