Amazing food, staff, and service. My boyfriend and I are obsessed with Genki. We get excited to go eat there, knowing it’s going to be perfect! We both agree that Genki is the best sushi we’ve ever had.

We have been in Wilmington for 10 years and It was by far the best sushi we have had here. Recommend it to anyone.

In terms of food and preparation, one of the better and more authentic Japanese restaurants I have visited in the US. Another was Yakatoria, Little Osaka in LA. Sushi: The chef seems to use a better grade of fish than other sushi shops. It is well made and presented nicely. Plenty of other dishes done well - Fried Fish in Vinegar with pickled onion, Shumai, Sakekama (my favorite) all were delicious. Love it and will be back.

Probably the best sushi restaurant in Wilmington. They even make their own soy sauce. Nice selection of fish for their sushi.

Having grown up in Tokyo during the 60's my love of Japanese culture, especially their cuisine, is fondly remembered when I step through the door of Genki. The food is as authentic as the decor and Danny and Lana make you feel like family. Highly recommended.

Genki is our favorite Sushi spot in town. The staff is always so friendly, the food is always delicious and so fresh tasting, and it is all very reasonably priced. We go here at least once a week and have not been disappointed yet. It is a smaller restaurant and gets very busy at night so it helps to make reservations.

Great find on our recent trip to Wilmington. We landed here mainly because it was near our hotel -- and because of the great customer reviews -- and were super happy with our meal. Highlights: the complementary little dishes of edamame with hijiki, pan fried veggie dumplings, and oddly enoug, the egg drop soup (pretty bland in most restaurants, but they step it up here in flavor and presentation. I'd have never thought to order it if I hadn't seen it on someone else's table and it looked great!). The sushi was very fresh tasting and generous in portions, if not terribly creative. Our party of 3 all ordered different mains, and the only one that was just so-so was one noodle dish (Yakisoba) that was a little too sweet for our taste. The ambience is charming and simple, and the servers were extremely friendly, efficient and attentive. They do a good pour of wine too :-). Would highly recommend, and I'll definitely go back to Genki next time I'm in Wilmington!

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!
