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!

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.

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.

This is honestly the best restaurant in Wilmington, NC, probably in the state of North Carolina. We love eating at Genki's and have always had an amazing meal. Lana and Chef Danny are very particular about their ingredients and only serve the best.
