Gen Sushi in Belmont serves “exceedingly fresh” sashimi in an “intimate setting,” okra says. Other hounds appreciate the generous portions, like the sushi and sashimi combo that taterjane describes: nine pieces of sashimi, a California roll, and five pieces of nigiri, with fish all “quite thick and large.”

While the sashimi rivals that of nearby Toraya, taterjane thinks the menu is somewhat limited for diners who don’t eat raw fish. Sushi rolls were “nothing special,” though an appetizer of miso black cod was delicious. The only real concern for hounds is the size of the space: Once Gen Sushi catches on, it could be hard to land a table.
