I like Sushi Gen. The atmosphere is nice, but the food is okay for the price. There are a few other sushi resturants in Little Tokyo that I don't want to name because I'm afraid they're going to get too crowded when I come to LA.
For example, on a sashimi deluxe dinner... they give you a pretty full plate of fish, but 1/3 of it are tartare like chopped up fish mixed with scallions... which really are just leftovers that are packaged to look like something fancy. For 3 people on Feb 10, 2006, it cost $120 for a sashimi deluxe dinner, mixed a la carte sushi that we picked, yellowtail collar, 1 salad, 2 miso soups and a 1 glass of wine, and 1 diet coke. Don't get me wrong. The food is good... but the price isn't.
This place is hopping on Friday nights with fun sushi chefs and fun clientele. I like to go with a small group to eat and drink and make some noise. The food is not to be outshined by the atmosphere. I especially like the large portion sizes of fish and shrimp because I can eat a lot. Price is as expected, not out of range.
Alright, I've been going here for over 15 years. I noticed that the price has sky rocketed in the past couple years. What's up with that? I use to consider this place to be a great valued sushi joint, but now its one of those over priced - mediocre place. Time to look for an alternative.
This is the place to go when you really like shashimi, best in California. Everything is absolutely fresh. The only thign i don't like is that service is a little slow, but that's only because the restaurant is so crowded from customers. My family and I go there every day and I'd definately recomend this place to anyone that likes sushi.
Be aware: Don't eat in front of shushibar, very pricy and order sheet has no unit price, few sashimi and nigiri cost me $117.00 two time more my wife and daughter lunch special at regular table after 70 minutes wait.
