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.

The service was very friendly and attentive. The sushi was AMAZING - so fresh and tasty. The post-meal toffees were delish!

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. If you decide to... More

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.
