Frozen fish doesn't make it. All looks good, but not up to snuff. Chef too sloppy, always wipes knives on same towel, never washes. They were told of allergies when we ordered, but took no measures, did not care. More interested in calling out greetings...More

I've been to quite a few sushi restaurants in varying price ranges, and Genki is probably the best combination of price and quality that I have found thus far. The service was excellent, the tuna nigiri was succulent and fresh, and every appetizer ranging from...More

Great food and great atmosphere! Shrimp tempura roll was a personal favorite. That price was responsible and the staff was very friendly!

We had the regular and deluxe sushi. It was delicious. They let you substitute which is nice. The hot tea and hot sake we're good. The homemade caramels were lovely.

Okay - you have to try this place. I live downtown, and everyone raves about Yo Saki. But the sushi there is mediocre, and Genki is HEAVEN. It is the freshest, very best sushi in Wilmington. I am never disappointed. My uncle and I go...More

Genki is hands down the best sushi in the greater Wilmington, NC area! Better sushi, better service and better prices! Can't beat it! Highly recommend.

Nope, They do not.
On April 5, we'll be arriving in Wilmington from Charlottesville, VA and thought we'd like to try your restaurant. However, I noticed via Open Table that the only available reservations start at 7:45. I tried April 6, same times. April 12, same times. Is there a problem with your Website, do you not take reservations early in the evening? Please tell me how we might be able to eat at Genki Sushi a bit earlier.
