Guaranteed consistently amazing quality; they do not compromise on their ingredients or preparation. I’ve been all over town looking for a suitable back-up but have yet to find anything that comes close. Thank you, Chef Danny and Lana for your hard work and for giving me something I can always count on!

The food is always excellent. Chef Danny makes everything, hardest working chef I've ever seen. The staff is friendly and efficient, even greeting you in Japanese. The kama is worth the trip alone.

I have been going to Genki for more than 10 years with family, with friends, with coworkers and with business associates. We all agree this is the best, the freshest and most authentic sushi in Wilmington. The wait staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The place to go if you are a novice or experienced sushi devotee!

I frequented this restaurant in the past under the previous owner. The restaurant was good for what it was. There was no effort to create a fine dining atmosphere. I always felt comfortable with the husband (sushi chef) and wife team who were always welcoming and humble. I visited recently and the restaurant was empty minus a table and I... More

Dear foodietothemax! Thank you for your review! First off let me say that for this to be just a 3 star review, this is the worse review we have ever had! We must have really struck a nerve somewhere with you because you also took the time to give us a 1 star on Yelp as well. As the owner... More

Awesome. The sushi, service, chef, staff, owner. We have lived in Wilmington for just over a year and this was our first visit to Genki. When the owner took time to talk to us and introduce herself after dinner and learned it was our first visit to Genki her response was simple, "What took you so long!?"... we didn't have... More

Genki Sushi is by far the most authentic Japanese experience in Eastern North Carolina! I've lived in Japan for 6 years and I never thought I would find Japanese food in North Carolina that could compare to what I experienced there. If I'm ever visiting my family and craving real Japanese food, I'm coming here. I'll be back soon.

Due to reviews, I was expecting great food. Unfortunately we were a little disappointed. The shrimp tempura was a little soggy, and they didn't have the ginger salad dressing that I love and expect at sushi restaurants.

Sofie101, Owner at Genki Sushi, responded to this review

Dear Sue A, Thank you for your review! I am so sorry to hear that your tempura was soggy. Its kind of hard to mess up tempura because it is just dipped in tempura batter and lightly fried. There are a couple of ways that it can get soggy however; one is if it sits too long before consuming and... More
