Will continue to come to this restaurant. Great food and friendly staff.
We love the sushi, the cozy atmosphere, and the fact that it's close to home haha
Also think its the best sushi in town
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.
Amazing food and great service. Sort of a hidden gem. I would definitely recommend!
I absolutely love coming to Genki ... its always a special treat and they are consistently amazing! Happy 2019 Genki
Full house Friday night. Dependably good food. Shrimp fried rice and sushi.
I have never had a bad meal and the staff and chef Danny are the BEST!
Server was knowledgeable and had great recommendations. The food is always fresh and amazing here. Our favorite sushi in Wilmington, hands down.
Love this place !!!
We loved our experience at Genki Sushi. Easily our favorite sushi spot in Wilmington. Fun atmosphere, so authentic! Highly recommend!
Best Japanese in town
Freshest sushi we’ve had in a long time. We were visiting our daughter at UNCW and she wanted sushi. Had never tried Genki before. We will always come back here from now on. It’s was DELICIOUS!
Awesome! The food is amazing and the service is always great.
Took my daughter here for her birthday, what a gret pick! Food was excellent, service was good. A little pricey for an everyday meal, perfect for any sushi loving special occasion.
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!
I am so happy to find Genki Sushi! Newly relocated from NJ, I was looking for an authentic Japanese cuisine and found it here at Genki Sushi.... please keep up the freshness and wonderful menu.
Best sushi in Wilmington!! Always an amazing dining experience all around. We’d eat there every night if we could.
good sushi of wide variety provided by a warm, friendly staff in a clean attractive space with a nice vibe. We have dined here a fair bit lately and it's consistently a very good experience.
Everything was amazing, from start to finish. Chef Danny is brilliant and we can’t wait to go back!
Great food and great service. Wonderful selection, almost too much. Recommend to anyone looking for some good sushi and quiet conversation.
This our favorite Japanese restaurant in Wilmington! It is family run and consistently delicious!
Genki never ever disappoints! Feels like home from the moment you arrive. Food is fresh and beautifully prepared. Wait staff are the best and very knowledgeable
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.
Always the best
Absolutely the best sushi of my life...the food was just outstanding!!
Great service, great food for a good price. Can’t go wrong.
This was my first trip here, recommended by friends. It was very good overall with a wide variety of menu options, not just sushi.
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!
The food was amazing! But something was smoking and the door had to be opened so it was hot. Also, I’ve never waited that long for sushi.
The service was outstanding! The wait for the food was about an hour and the food was good but not the best Japanese food I’ve had in Wilmington. The coconut cake is fabulous. Would definitely go back.
Everything I’ve had here is fantastic. Don’t miss the gyoza—it’s so good we ordered more for dessert.
best sushi in Wilmington, favorite Sushi ever! Authentic and delicious with a warm and friendly atmosphere. Must check out!
Our go-to-place for sushi. Interesting and different sushi rolls. The spicy tuna hand roll is amongst the best I have had anywhere! Must make reservations.
Our favorite spot in Wilmington hands down. So much more than sushi. The owners are incredible and the food is made with so much love and care.
Always great sushi and service. Excellent quality, highly recommended!
The best sushi I have ever had! Very fresh, great service and always something new. Try the coconut cake homemade by the owner it’s amazing!!
Our server, "Awesomeness", was, well, awesome. Great sense of humor, great service. The sushi was some of the best we have ever eaten. Will recommended to friends and eat here again if we are ever traveling in this area in the future.
Genki was wonderful as usual. We have been eating here for 20 years. The quality of the sushi is excellent. I hightly recommend this restaurant. The homemade caramels that come with the bill are yummy!
