Genji M Japanese/Korean Restaurant: Unlimited Sashimi and More (Kalayaan Makati) (Closed)

July 23, 2014 Makati Avenue, Ayala Avenue, Makati, Philippines

I've long encountered the ripple of buzzes over Genji M's Unlimited Sashimi, Sushi and Rolls Promo.  So one Friday night, my friends and I decided to take on the challenge and see how much we could consume.

It has the typical Japanese restaurant vibe with wooden everything.

I thought the place was small but its actually very spacious with multiple private rooms.

At the sushi bar area, you can see the Sashimi being prepared by the chefs.

Food

UNLIMITED Sashimi (Includes Sushi & Rolls) (699 php)
unlimited sashimi
Yellow Tail, Tuna, Tuna Tataki, Salmon, Octopus and Tuna Belly
At the start, we were given a sampler of these Sashimi (2 piece per person).  You can tell by the looks that they were all very fresh.Then, we were given a checklist so we could select what we want to be refilled (maximum of 10 pieces per item).  There's a button at the table to call out their happy and courteous servers to accommodate your requests. Sashimi selections include: Salmon, Tuna, Tuna Belly, Tuna Tataki, Squid and Octopus.  I enjoyed the Salmon and Octopus the most!


unlimited sushi
Shrimp, Fatty Salmon,   Crab Stick, Baked Tofu, Tuna and Salmon
For starters, you get 1 piece of the items above per person before you can order from the checklist.  Sushi selections: Tuna, Tuna Tataki, Salmon, Fatty Salmon, Octopus, Squid, Crab Stick, Spam, Samgyupsal, Bulgogi, John Dory, Shrimp, Baked Tofu, Flying Fish Roe, Corn Salad, Hirame, Cream Dory, Silver Fish, Unagi (Premium) , Urchin Egg (Premium) and Tuna Belly (Premium).  I like that their Sushi has just the right amount of rice on it so it's not too heavy to eat. 

unlimited rolls
California, Crazy CaliforniaBulgogi, Salmon, Spicy Roll, Cheese and French Fried
Rolls selections Include: Salmon, California, Tuna, Kimchi, Cucumber, Crab Stick, Egg, Spam, Bulgogi, French Fried, Cheese, Spicy Roll and Crazy California.   

My favorites are the French Fried, Cheese and Spicy Rollwhich I re-ordered several times.

miso soup
Miso Soup

The UNLIMITED Promo also includes a hot bowl of Miso Soup.

Buffet Items (included in the UNLIMITED Promo)
We were surprised that aside from the Sashimi, Sushi & Rolls, there is also a buffet of various delicious dishes.

ebi tempura
Ebi Tempura (300 php)
The Ebi Tempura was superb!

chicken yakitori
Chicken Yakitori (120 php/3 pieces)

The Chicken Yakitori had green chili on them so be ready for a spicy kick.  I love the tenderness of the chicken bits and the sweet and salty blend of their yakitori sauce.  However, I expected the chicken to be a bit bigger. 

Update (April 1, 2015): Passed by Genji M this and was surprised that it is now closed.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Genji M not only offers a fun experience with their unlimited sush, sashimi and maki.  They also serve great authentic Japanese dishes.
