The sushi is always fresh and traditional. The soba noodle bowl was perfect! The new owners are super nice and have carried on the tradition of the extras that come with the meal, yeah!

I have been a fan of Genki since they opened in Wilmington. The couple that owns the restaurant is so appreciative of every patron that visits there.

Our experience was AMAZING. The service was wonderful and friendly. The presentation of the food was lovely, and the value was every bit as nice. I cannot express how wonderful everything was, start to finish. Never go anywhere else for sushi in Wilmington! :)

Genki is a small place with a really intimate setting. I have been several times and the food is always fantastic as is the service. The sushi is incredible. Definitely a great place for a date or to bring guests in town for an amazing meal.
