Genki Sushi is the ONLY Authentic Japanese sushi bar and Restaurant in Wilmington and surrounding areas. We only use fresh ingredients and we make every thing in house including our very own soy sauce blend. We are located in the heart of Wilmington. We strive hard to maintain the highest quality of food, ingredients and service. We are considered " A True taste of Japan". Come and see what real Japanese sushi taste like! We cant wait for you to have a new place to eat sushi at, and that is with us!

Hands down the best sushi in Wilmington

Genki is my favorite sushi restaurant in Wilmington. They have an authentic and traditional menu, which is impossible to find these days. The sushi is always fresh, and the the entrees are identical to what I've had in Japan. The customer service is excellent, even when they are slam packed.

If you really love sushi like I do this is the place...authentic hand prepared by Chef Danny. They use only the best ingredients prepared by a master resulting in a consistently top notch dining experience. You are greeted at the door, attended to like they are happy you came and give best wishes and thank you when you leave. Your... More

This our favorite sushi in NC. We've been patrons for over 13 years. The newer owners have made a wonderful transition and kept the same quality and taste we've grown to love. Highly recommended.

There sushi is incredible and the service is great. The staff is friendly and attentive. Their other dishes are also delicious and very traditional. The sushi chef will happily swap out one thing for another if there's something you'd rather have. They also have these amazing little caramels that they give you after your meal that are like nothing I've... More

If you love sushi, this is a quaint small place with a pleasant atmosphere and authentic handmade sushi. Loved everything about Genki! The chef makes homemade caramel that is delicious! Try Genki. You will appreciate the tip!

Chef Danny is an expert with all the traditional methods, and uses his training to present a very modern and inviting restaurant experience. A "must stop" for sushi lovers and first timers . . . new & old!! His partner (and wife) Lana make this experience not only great food but a friendly, wonderful atmosphere for any group or occasion.... More

Another great resturant hidden in a strip mall. The Sushi chef is amazing. I am not generally a big fan of sushi, but I went with a friend. The food was amazing. The resturant is a family owned and operated place, and the attention shows. If you are into sushi at all, you will really enjoy a visit.
