My In-laws took us there for our 14th our anniversary, because we love the food. We were put at a table where customers and servers kept bumping into us which was very annoying. The food wasn’t the best that night, my food came out luke-warm. When we were headed out the door my poor mother in law tripped over the carpet at the door, of my husband wasn’t standing right there to break her fall she would’ve busted her head or broke her arm. I thought everyone saw it, I even told a waiter and he didn’t seem concerned as I told him someone needed to do something about that rug. Very disappointed and it just ruined the night.

This is one of my absolute favorite restaurants in Wilmington. Their sushi is fantastic and perfectly made and they have the best shumai dumplings that I have ever had. The service is very attentive and at the end of the meal they give you a variety of homemade caramels. 12/10 would recommend.

This is one of the best Japanese restaurants in Wilmington. The ambience is like a comfortable small neighborhood restaurant where there are many regular customers who know the staff and chef. The food is fresh and offers unique fish and seafood options that one would expect in an authentic Japanese restaurant. This is why the prices are slightly higher but the quality is worthwhile. Make sure you make reservations, the restaurant is small so seating is limited. Many walk-ins had to wait for seats.

One of the only places we've been where splitting an entree wasn't seen as a big deal and they were actually very accommodating. To the point where they where they brought two plates of equal portion out to us. Oh and who can forget this place has the best sushi in town!

We first ate at Genki in 2001, now, another family has assumed the business after spending time with the og owners who've retired.
The have captured the spirit and breathed new life into it, the family running the restaurant now are just a delight. The food and beer and saki are all fantastic, real deal sushi, traditional and with actual snow crab. The otoro I've had here is among the best I've had. The house made soy sauce is low sodium and quite delicious. I like the coconut saki and the house saki, the coconut being milder.
The specials are usually something I've never seen before, a visual treat as well. I've never regretted ordering one!
If you want to watch the sushi chef ask for the corner seats on the side of the bar.

Danny, Lana and the staff of Genki Sushi made us feel right at home from the get go. From the smiling welcome of Lana at the back of the restaurant, to Chef Danny behind the bar, to the various employees, we were made to feel special. Like old friends. The menus is a bit daunting, but easily navigated with the help of Knowledgeable and friendly wait staff From the warm moist towels brought out first, thru the delicious offerings, to the hime made toffees served at t he end of the meal, everything was first class. Genki Sushi is a winner and that's why we keep coming back... For family occasions, for groups of friends, or for a date, This place is a winner!
