The real deal

I've had the privilege to live in both Japan and China and will say without a doubt that the sushi here is as fresh and authentic as anything you would find in those countries.

Although I do think the food is good at Genki, the servers tend to disappear for long periods of time. Also the place itself lacks atmosphere. I still think that for sushi in Wilmington, Nikki's is the best bet.

This is the best place for sushi in Wilmington! The sushi is delicious, very fresh, authentic. As soon as you walk in, they make you feel welcome. We enjoyed meeting the owner, who went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with our selections. The service was fast but not so fast you felt rushed and the wait... More

Genki never disappoints. Extensive, exotic sushi menu, delicacies like California uni, blue fun tuna and toro are always fresh and prepared with love. Chef Dani is by far the most talented and creative sushi chef in town. Each plate is carefully and artfully designed. There is always a courteous and upbeat staff to take care of you. Menu goes beyond... More
