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...More

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.

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.
