Each time we go to Wilmington we take out from Genki. The sushi menu offers a wide variety and everything we have had has been fresh and tasty. The place is busy and small so if you plan to eat there get in early. Staff is friendly and helpful. I look forward to going there again soon.

Appearances are deceiving as this is in a strip mall with fairly sparse furnishings. It is the real deal. Friendly staff, great food and wonderful free home made toffees (4 flavors) offered at end of meal. If you are in the mood for authentic sushi or Japanese food, none better in Wilmington.

This seemed to be a family owned Japanese food restaurant that was run by an elder Japanese man and his wife. The sushi was the best I've had in Wilmington, but they offer many other delicious dishes as well. The staff was very kind and polite and the atmosphere was relaxing. I will definitely go back.

I am very picky about my seafood. We had raw and cooked sushi and everything was fresh and came as ordered. Server and Sushi chef were very helpful. Restaurant was very clean service was spot on. I would recommend this to a first timer since there is plenty to choose from.

This is a local favorite of my family's. I've never had a disappointing dish here. The shrimp tempura is the best.

Tried this place based upon other reviews, so we had high hopes for a great meal. They exceeded even those expectations. What a treat! The eel sushi was the best we've had. My normally reluctant to eat four-year-old dug into chicken fried rice. The miso soup was also a big hit. If you like sushi, you must try this place.

Recently visited Genki Sushi near Target in Wilmington for lunch with my mother in law who is in town visiting from Michigan. Husband and I just moved here a few months ago and have been trying to sift through the local restaurants to pinpoint our favorites. This one takes the cake in the sushi category! I only choose to write... More

What genki has to offer is amazing service, home like atmosphere, and incredible fresh food. The price point is beyond reasonable for such good sushi and the smile you get every time you enter the door is so fantastic.

I really like Genki. The sushi is the best around and prices are reasonable. Service can get a little slow on busy nights but that is to be expected when the sushi is at such a high level. Really fun with a group of friends, always worth it.
