I've been to quite a few sushi restaurants in varying price ranges, and Genki is probably the best combination of price and quality that I have found thus far. The service was excellent, the tuna nigiri was succulent and fresh, and every appetizer ranging from the Gyoza to the Miso soup was hot, fresh, and delicious. Being seated at the... More

Great food and great atmosphere! Shrimp tempura roll was a personal favorite. That price was responsible and the staff was very friendly!

We had the regular and deluxe sushi. It was delicious. They let you substitute which is nice. The hot tea and hot sake we're good. The homemade caramels were lovely.

Okay - you have to try this place. I live downtown, and everyone raves about Yo Saki. But the sushi there is mediocre, and Genki is HEAVEN. It is the freshest, very best sushi in Wilmington. I am never disappointed. My uncle and I go together, we are both from Northern California and we both LOVE it. Nice, nice people... More

There are times I actually CRAVE their food. The sushi is PERFECT and so is the egg drop soup. Actually it is OUTSTANDING!! I have celiac disease so I can't eat gluten at all. I am very comfortable eating there because they clearly understand my allergy.

Genki is hands down the best sushi in the greater Wilmington, NC area! Better sushi, better service and better prices! Can't beat it! Highly recommend.

Went to Wilmington to visit my daughter at UNCW and took a chance on Genki Sushi. To my surprise and delight, it was incredible! Fresh, delicious and melt in your mouth! I'd been disappointed with sushi since moving to Nashville from the West coast, now I can't wait to go back to see my daughter so I can eat at... More

The staff was friendly and attentive. The sushi was just OK. Not bad, not good, just OK. It's possible that it's the best sushi in Wilmington...to that I cannot attest. But as far as sushi goes in general, it was just average.

Thank ZwinC
