Reviewed October 16, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Best sashimi and sushi deals for lunch! The only worse case scenario is the long wait and hard parking...

“Great weekday lunch specials!”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

The weekday lunch specials here are amazing, the sashimi platter is delicious and reasonably priced ($15-$20). These lunch specials are only offered on the weekdays before 2pm, so expect to wait in a long line since the establishment is popular. Located in Little Tokyo in downtown Los Angeles, can park in the paid parking lot or at meters for street parking. Well worth visiting for an excellent, delicious sushi experience!

“Great place for sushi.”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

The special lunch combo is the best thing in the world. You may have to wait in the line for at least half an hour, but it is definitely worth it!

“Not just excellent, but refreshingly different!”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

Every classic nigiri sushi I tried here was not just very good, but also made with a slightly different taste which was highly satisfying. Spicy tuna roll with a twist, California rolls - oh my gosh, I NEVER order California rolls (they are not true sushi, right?!) but I heard they were good here and ... Sushi Gen makes them soooooo good! Uni - so fresh it melts in your mouth. Unagi, saba, hamachi, all the "normal" sushi fishes - SO GOOD!!! But not cheap. Dinner for two was $135 with only 1 beer.
