One of the best restaurants in Wilmington if not the best.

Some places ruined sushi from me. I had gone several years with no sushi and finally decided to give it another go at Genki Sushi. Zero regrets and I am now officially a Genki Sushi... sushi... addict. Despite only recently trying their sushi, I have been going to Genki for almost half a year now... read more

While visiting the Wilmington area, I knew one thing for sure, that I wanted to eat as much fresh seafood as I possibly could while I was here. As any savvy traveler would, I consulted the wonderful search results on Trip Advisor as to figure out where I could find the area's best sushi. After reading the rave reviews of... More

Genki is the most amazing sushi restaurant that I have ever been to. My boyfriend and I recently moved to Wilmington and on our first night we found Genki after searching "best family owned/ authentic sushi restaurant" We landed on Genki and decided to try it out. The experience was unparalleled from the moment we walked into the door when... More

This is a great family run restaurant and it shows in the quality of the food. There are fancier restaurants in Wilmington however the quality of the food does not compare. If you like Japanese give it a try you will be happy you did.

I don't necessarily consider myself a Sushi Connoisseur, but I have dined at many Sushi establishments in town and feel that Genki offers the best variety and value of them all! Recently undergoing a management change, Genki has continued, if not improved, under the new owner/management team! We have been dining here for about 5 years now and always come... More

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. The chef and owner did his apprenticeship under a Japanese sushi master in New York City and you can taste the difference. Everything is made fresh... More

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.

Dear ChacaNC, I hesitated to respond on this one, simply because I am puzzled. I am not sure if you have eaten with us or not. I notice that you have many reviews on your page and lots of badges. So before I jump ship and call a bluff on this one, I must confess I have been racking my... More

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
