Whats our Story?

It Started, Quite Simply, Like This...

Gen Kai has been serving the Chico area for over 30 years. Specializing in traditional Japanese cuisine we serve only the freshest seafood, meats and local vegetables. Come in and watch our skillful sushi chefs display their artistic culinary talents while preparing our exciting and unique signature rolls.

For the non-sushi patron we offer an extensive menu with authentic Japanese dishes featuring tempura, beef teriyaki, sesame chicken and nabeyaki udon. A full service bar is also available for your enjoyment, serving Gen Kai's own exotic concoctions. Be sure to try our out of this world Jalapeno Peach martini.

Our friendly staff will make sure you feel like family.
