My fiance and I have been going to Genki since we first started dating when we were UNC Wilmington students, and it quickly became our favorite restaurant in all of Wilmington. We went there all the time and didn't only get the amazing sushi that will please even the pickiest eater, but my favorites were the Tonkatsu (pork cutlet) and Gyoza Dinner! He loved all of the sashimi platters because the sushi chefs are the best around!

When I worked with our international students from Japan, we had one student who was intensely homesick. He didn't like speaking English, hated American food, and just wanted to go home. We brought him to Genki Sushi for lunch one day and after tasting the food, we starting crying because it tasted just like his mother's cooking. Genki will always be our home when we return to Wilmington and the staff is always welcoming and accommodating.

With amazing atmosphere, food, and people, Genki lacks nothing. Love them!

I was in Wilmington for a conference. I am originally from the west coast so I am a bit picky about my sushi. This place had excellent reviews so I thought I would check it out. I wasn't disappointed! It was good sushi that was not over Americanized. They also offered a few unique rolls. I echo what other people said about the ingredients being quite fresh (a MUST for sushi).

I would recommend you visit.

My friend and I are in town for the Ironman 70.3 race, and we saw this place near our hotel and decided to try it. WOW—were we impressed! I haven’t had sushi this fresh and well prepared since I was in Japan several years ago, and I LOVE sushi! Very friendly and helpful staff too! Highly recommend!

Genki Sushi is simply an amazing restaurant from beginning to end. The service is amazing, the food outstanding and the ambiance quite authentic. I am so glad that we were able to eat in this place. Every person that assisted us during our dining experience was more than friendly and attentive to details. The miso and egg drop soups, ginger dressing salad, curry and rolls were simply delicious. What was to die for was the coconut cake. It was one the best cakes that I have eaten my whole life. Even if you are not a coconut fan, this cake is a must. It is so moist and delicious that one slice is not enough. At the end, we were given these series of homemade candies that were really great. I am so looking forward to our return in November for my mother's birthday celebration. This is now one my favorite places to eat Japanese food in North Carolina.
