First time at Gen, which is new. It is located at the Galleria Mall (exterior entrance). I went for lunch and tried to get there shortly after 11am (opening) to avoid the line. Nice choice of meats. Interesting grill built inside your table, which actually is easy to use. Very good ventilation. One price of $14.95 for lunch. Good service. Bottom line is this restaurant provides very tasty food at a good price point.

Well three of us decided to try this place for lunch today (april 19, 2016). Due to some negative reviews both here and on yelp it made us wonder how it could be so good for some and so bad for others. I'd say go check it out for yourself.
Our waiter was Ozzie. Very nice fellow, took his time explaining how it worked. It is an all you can eat but where you order and they bring it to your table. They bring you as much as you want and they also checked back regularly. I'd suggest the KFC (Korean fried chicken), the pork ___ (I forget what it was called but it is an appetizer that comes out cooked) also the pork steak. The apps come out cooked, the entrees you cook yourself in the center of the table. The regular steak is nice, and is the spicy chicken bulgogi.
tip: do not get the brisket. It is too thin, it cooks to nothing. Waste of time really to order that.
The only down side was the Asian hostess was a very sour woman. No smile, nothing. It was as if she really hated her job. I hope she finds a job she likes so she can be happy.
But for only $15 a person, well worth it.

We visited Gen on Sunday for lunch as we had heard it opened and decided to give it a try. It is located at the front of the Galleria Mall in Henderson which is good especially if you have to drop by the mall for something.

The décor is modern and the restaurant is clean and wait staff is friendly and very helpful, especially if you have never been to a Korean BBQ before. The concept is all you can eat which includes appetizers, some of which are already on the table and others that you can order. As the waiter explained, you can even order more appetizers if you want more. One then selects the meats for grilling.

We selected Marinated pork, beef, pork belly and calamari for the first go round. How do they grill it? They don't, you grill it yourself on the round grill centered in the table. It the pieces are too big, they provide each table with a pair of scissors to cut it. Some of the meats grill quickly, others take a little time so don't expect a quick lunch or dinner. The pork was best in our opinion and the beef was also pretty good. I probably would not order the calamari again. The next round we tried the beef tongue (very thinly sliced and cooked very fast), chicken and we rounded it out with the shrimp (still in the shell and heads attached). All and all, the sides and appetizers were tasty and some of the meats were also very good.

The downside? Some of the meats were poor cuts and kind of fatty. The beef was made up of some good size pieces whiles others were just slivers. Would we eat there again? Probably but we won't be rushing back. First off, it's rather pricey at $19.95 per person for lunch on Sunday (Slightly cheaper during the week) and the food isn't the best around (maybe it was the guy doing the grilling? Hey, that's me!). Still it is a fun and interesting way to have lunch so if we're ever at the mall again, we're quite hungry and willing to part with the money, sure we'd eat there again.

This is by far the best place to get Korean BBQ in Vegas. The price is right and the atmosphere is amazing. Definitely make the trip to Henderson if you're in Vegas. It's worth the drive.
