Gen isn’t the best sushi you’re ever going to have, but it also isn’t the most expensive. As far as sushi goes, it’s actually pretty affordable. The staff is also really friendly, and it’s a nice, cozy little space. You wouldn’t really travel to come here, but it’s popular amongst the locals. So stop by if you need some affordable fish. Drink one of their many sakes.
