The staff was friendly and attentive. The sushi was just OK. Not bad, not good, just OK. It's possible that it's the best sushi in Wilmington...to that I cannot attest. But as far as sushi goes in general, it was just average.

We love this place! There has never been a time when we come here that we don't have an outstanding service, great food. A great overall experience. While we are frequent visitors in Wilmington, this place feels like our own neighborhood restaurant. The chef is very accommodating with substitutions. This place has a happy atmosphere every time we come here,... More

We had a great experience sitting right at the sushi bar. The chef/owner was a great host and the sushi was fabulous. Huge menu with choices for the sushi-curious (me) as well as the sushi fanatic (my husband.)

This is by far the best sushi I've had. They make everything in house including their sauces. The staff was unbelievable and I appreciated being spoken to by the owners. It showed they really cared. I never go back to the same restaurant twice because there are so many but I WILL be returning and tell everyone about it.

This place is awesome. I absolutely love sushi and thought I had tried every place in town after living here for nearly 10 years, yet somehow just discovered Genki yesterday and I have to say it is my new absolute favorite sushi place in town and I plan on going there a LOT. You can really tell it's a family... More

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.
