    Great mixture of sushi/roll and Japanese home cooking plates.

    Gen salad is a good shareable side. Salmon entree was the best looking dish at my table
  • Datrianna M.
    Sushi wasn't that great.
  • Lukas F.
    Strangely—and unfortunately—the appetizers were much tastier than any of the sushi we tried.

    I'm not going to lie, this was one of the best meals I've ever had. Try a bunch of appetizers and special rolls and don't forget dessert!

    Enjoyable neighborhood Japanese spot. I liked the pork katsu curry (pictured) and the gyoza, but the chirashi and nabeyaki udon also looked good!

    A well rounded sushi menu that's budget friendly, but doesn't compromise on freshness. Sit outside whenever weather allows

    Head to Brooklyn for one of our favorite Japanese restaurants which serves fresh dumplings. The wrappers have a silk-like quality which chefs worldwide strive for. The shrimp shumei is also wonderful. Read more

    Great breakfast/brunch deal with a ton of food. Pretty authentic and finally, a place that serves some proper natto in south Brooklyn.

    Your friendly neighborhood sushi restaurant with a chill vibe. The seared tuna belly roll with avocado is a great combination of flavors.

    The Traditional Breakfast brought me back to Japan. Try it if you've spent time living in Japan or want to embrace traditional food, it's not easy to find! Yaki-salmon, unagi-maki, kinpira, and NATTO!

    Came in for take-out maki lunch special. Haven't eaten yet, but they're playing Aphex Twin, which at least indicates they have good taste in music!

    This is possibly the best Japanese sushi restaurant in Brooklyn. Also, if you're lucky, your waiter might be McGuyver (or Keifer Southerland from Lost Boys).

    This is really the best sushi in all of Brooklyn. It's served the way it should and always go for the Chef special.

    What a GEM! The lunch special is the best bet. If you are feeling adventurous try the fermented tofu (its a little nutty) but if not, the old standards for sushi are excellent, fresh and well priced.

    Try to get ten don if you can, although sometimes the servers will insist it's only on the lunch menu.

    Staff Pick! Stephanie (Education): Gen has high-quality, fresh sushi at good prices. The patio out back is a lovely spot for dining in the spring and summer. Enjoy the green or red bean ice cream.
