Best sushi in Wilmington. Amazing every time.
We’ve been coming to Genki for two years now, it’s always our choice for date night. Amazing quality food, the service is always wonderful, the owners are absolutely fantastic. They’ve kept it as authentically Japanese as is possible here in the states, and from being stationed overseas for three years it’s my favorite comfort place to go for a reminder of the incredible place I lived in Okinawa. They’re absolutely killing it here, highly recommend you visit!
Excellent as usual!
My go-to for Sushi whenever I’m visiting Wilmington. Great vibe. Excellent sushi.
In 20+ years, I’ve never had a bad experience here
Without a doubt, best sushi in Wilmington!. Dinner by reservation only...plan ahead?
The service was good but it took a little longer than I would have expected. The staff did take care of us along the way.
Amazing experience as always! Food is spectacular!
This place never disappoints. Since I’ve moved here, I’ve been a few times. It is worth the wait for the amazing food and the fact that you can only eat there for dinner with a reservation.
As usual, great food and experience. We look forward to visiting this restaurant every year.

We love Genki! The food is always amazing and fresh. The staff is always spot on and takes care of you like family. You can’t go wrong with anything on their menu. Best authentic sushi in town
Excellent first time at Genko Sushi!
They just need more powerful AC. Everything else was excellent
Amazing food and great service !
Best sushi in town. Most authentic!. You MUST have a reservation
The food at Genki is exceptional. While the wait was long, it was definitely worth it for the quality of the sushi we received—my advice: eat a small snack beforehand or order an appetizer (it came out much faster than the sushi). Our waitress was attentive and personable. I only wish we lived in the area so we could visit again soon!
Delicious food and excellent service
Genki is always a great choice for sushi. It’s the best in town!!!
Love Genki! We eat here once or twice a month. Staff is always friendly and quick as possible, the food is phenomenal! Remeber to be kind to the staff they are doing all they can with limited people and, make your reservation the place is always busy!
Excellent service. Nice selection of Sake. Knowledgeable and personable wait staff. Best Wagu sushi.
Best sushi in the area. The staff is great and the food is always well done. The ownership clearly prides itself on being excellent and it shows.
Absolutely fantastic food. Best sushi we have eaten in North Carolina.
Love the food!!!
So I’m being pretty nice here given COVID and it’s impact on restaurants right now. It took over an hour to get dinner due to staffing issues. Having said that, they were up front about the problem. The time went by fast - actually worked out well for me with my date to talk longer than normal. The food was really good. Thanks for being honest and providing a good experience.
We are new to town and wanted to find a good sushi restaurant. After reviewing the listing we selected this one based on its reviews.
We were not disappointed at all. Note: do make reservations as they fill fast.
The service was friendly, attentive, and informative. The sushi was delectable!
We will no doubt return.
After having lived for four years in Japan I can tell you, this place is authentic, right down to the staff welcoming you with a cheery sumimasen! Go for the vibe, enjoy it for the food, go back for the staff and service they provide.
A professional staff with great food and a packed house. Free parking and easy to get to a great local sushi restaurant
Make sure you order some cooked food in addition to fish. Enjoy nice dinner.
Great family atmosphere and the food is amazing! If you’re into spicy definitely try the Fire In The Hole roll. One of the best rolls I’ve ever had!
Best sushi I ever had
Food was great but took a long time to get
Great food as always. Staff appears happy to be there and it shows in their care of the customers.
We Love Genki! The owners are wonderful people and truly care about their restaurant, staff and customers.
Chef Danny and his staff run the best sushi restaurant in Wilmington - and one of the best I've ever experienced anywhere. Hospitality abounds and the food is superb!
Everything we ordered off the menu was fantastic. Accurate descriptions on the menu and staff was helpful to answer questions. Flavors were delicious with a variety of sauces and textures. We enjoyed every single bite. We can’t wait to go back and try new items.
