Sushi Gen Restaurant Review

If the number of dining options in Little Tokyo overwhelms you, this conveniently located sushi bar is a good place to know about. Its sushi chefs are skilled and friendly, and for those who don't want to sit at the long lacquered bar, a number of white linen-clad tables are available in the traditionally decorated, but smart-looking restaurant. The sushi menu is fairly predictable, but the...

A long time favorite sushi

This famous sushi haunt lives up to its long-standing reputations for being one of Los Angeles best freshest Japanese restaurants. The service is fun and fast once you have been seated.

Ok I’ll spill the beans like seemingly countless people before me judging by the line. Yes you might have to wait a while but grin and bear it. Sushi this good doesn’t come along every day. Wether you choose a table to enjoy the more...
