Finally tried this place out after heard good things about it. Food and service were top notch! We had a little bit of a wait because they were short a sushi chef but we received complimentary sake while we waited. Waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable. Will definitely return! If you haven't been, go!!

Sushi is very fresh, it is delicious. Went for lunch after reading the fabulous reviews. While the restaurant was very clean, the booths were a bit damaged. Service is great, they are very accommodating. The house salad with the sesame dressing is fabulous. It is simple with lettuce, carrots and celery with the dressing, but so tasty. The miso soup...

This place is amazing! My only disappointment is that we didn't discover it sooner. Our first visit was about 8 months ago and we try to frequent as often as we can. Service is always impeccable and I have never been disappointed with anything I have eaten. Take out is equally as satisfying and the prices are more than fair... More

The moment you step in the door to this cosy space, the owner/chef and his wife call out a welcome. The sushi was amazing, and Danny the owner chef talked with us about all the ingredients he prepares daily. From fresh wasabi, to soups, to dressings, etc. It was delightful and delicious. We will absolutely be back.

I've been to Genki Sushi two times and am sure to be a 'regular' there for years to come. My first visit, I enjoyed the fantastic sushi, both a familiar roll and an innovative roll, which is a signature roll of the amazing chef. They were delicious! My 2nd visit i tried the Kutz Curry, which was amazing. This dish... More

You can tell these people know what they're doing; the fish and rice were prepared perfectly. My husband and I have been to a LOT of sushi places around town and throughout NC and this is BY FAR the best we have had. Staff is super cheerful and nice and make you feel very welcome. We definitely found our new... More
