Always fresh with a very friendly atmosphere. Great for a nice date night and also for a family night out! Wide variety of choices. The only place in Wilmington I'll go for Sushi!

I love Genki. They have the best sushi, always fresh and expertly prepared. Their cooked dishes are also sensational. The staff is always warm and helpful. Some of our favorites are the Aji Dashi Tofu, Salmon Skin Hand Rolls and Shrimp Tempura Rolls.

I've been here a few times, sushi isn't generally my favorite food, but this is my favorite restaurant because the food is always extremely fresh and the service couldn't be better. I've eaten at quite a few places in wilmington, and this is for sure the best!

Great place in an unassuming location. The owners have been serving excellent sushi in town for decades. Living in the Triangle now and deeply miss it.

Genki is under new ownership. The original owner are retiring but the new owners, Danny and Lana, are doing a great job at carrying on Reiko and Sugi-San's high standards of great sushi and service. Genki is my son and my go to for sushi and all things Japanese.

Squid salad is good just a little small. Had five sushi rolls. They can make anything you want. Restaurant is a little dated but food is good. Staff very helpful and polite. They have change hands in the last month, but still good.

atmosphere average, food average, service friendly but just average overall. I don't get all the high marks... was expecting more after reading all the glowing reviews. Strip mall sushi.

I am a sushi nazi. I have been eating sushi long before it was popular to do so. This is the ONLY sushi I eat in my home town of Wilmington NC. This is traditional sushi..not trendy. It is prepared artfully and graciously by the owner. It is always fresh. The cooked items are terrific for anyone in your party... More

Unassuming restaurant with fabulous sushi and sashimi. Spicy tuna sushi and eel sushi are wonderful. Edamame and seaweed appetizers are great, as are the complimentary sweets for dessert. Try the hot sake. Burikama is to die for but rarely available. Set aside a couple of hours for your meal: fresh sushi takes time to make and shouldn't be wolfed down.
