“My favorite sushi for YEARS!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Don't judge GEN sushi until you've been to this location--the original. When I first came to NJ from CA I thought I'd never find good sushi. When a friend drove me into a strip mall, I thought I would die. NOT SO! Gen is my FAVORITE every-day sushi place ever, anywhere. Reliable, cheap, friendly staff, fast yet chill. Their lunch specials can't be beat. Try their white tuna--never had any quite like it anywhere.

“Good Japanese food at a price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

This is probably the best Japanese restaurant Iin this part of Bergen County but you will pay relatively high prices for an uninspired setting and mediocre service. The most fun is the Hibachi table - especially if you bring a large group. It's not over acted like some Japanese restaurants and the food is excellent.

“Very interesting and creative rolls”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2012

GEN in Montvale has been here for several years. Located in a strip shopping center, there is plenty of parking. The service is very good and friendly. The are a bit pricey, but, the quality is first class, and, the selection of some uniqure rolls is fairly extensive. They do not sell alcohol, but you can bring your own bottle, and, there is a liquor a couple of doors away.

I frequent GEN quite often and have never been disappointed.

“Not bad but not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2012 via mobile

If you want to get some good hibachi this restaurant in a strip mall is a pretty good choice. The preparation around the table is fun for kids but can be a distraction for adults. The food overall is good to very good. The overall atmosphere is just average. The service is generally mediocre.
