Excruciating wait, with no reservations (always hour+), but amazing sushi. Their sashimi special is a HUGE amount of fish at an amazing price.

Bad host service, but good sushi

Today was a disappointment. We had a party of 5, but my brother in-law was pulling into the parking lot and we 4 of us sat first. They notice we were missing one of 5 and said, we can't sit you. We were already sat down and he gave us a minute. I went outside to get him and by the time I get back, the host asked my folks and sister get up and wait. He gave our tables to another party of 3. I was so upset. He said it's not fair to sit us when all party was not here and it was onl...view morey 2 minutes. He made us get off the table and made us wait another 15-20 minutes for another table. The food was always premium, I come here enough times, given very generous gratuity every single time. So, basically he can be unfair to us, but he doesn't want to be unfair to others. We were embarrassed and people saw us sat down and get up after 2-3 minutes sitting down. This is the worst service from a restaurant host ever. Despite the disrespectful host, I still gave my fair gratuity today because the rest of the service is fine and I don't like making others suffer because of one uneducated idiot.view less

Great Fish and Huge Portions!

I go to all the ""best"" sushi restaurants in town often: Nozawa, Sasabune, Zo, Mori, etc....

Gen is straightforward. The fish is fresh and they give you a nice hunk of fish.

Great quality with reasonable price

Sushi gen is one of the best Sushi place if you are looking for good quality at reaasonable price. One of the best thing is their lucnh special. The quality is great and the price is like $15 to $20 to have a sushi combo. Love it!

Great Japanese food in LA

This food is a little pricey for what it is, however, if you are feeling sushi tonight and you are in LA, there is no better place

Favorite Sushi Restaurant

Hands down my favorite sushi restaurant to go to. Freshest and best quality sushi in the LA area. Try to go for dinner as the lines for lunch are ridiculous.

Great sushi @ an affordable price!!

The sushi is always fresh here and the service is good. I always enjoy sitting at the sushi bar bc I know I will be well taken care of.

The Chirashi bowl lunch special is worth the trip to dtla! But come before it open or after the lunch rush!! If not, you will have to wait!
