This restaurant does not take reservations, but we got here After 8 o’clock on a Saturday so it didn’t seem to be an issue. My wife is gluten-free, and they did have gluten-free soy sauce. She went with a chicken noodle dish, which I also...shared, and thought it was very tasty. I had Gyoza As an appetizer, I thought those were extremely good. I also had some California rolls, they seemed a little bit small to me, I might go a different route on those next time. We have been here before, and we will be back.More

If you love sushi, this is the place for you! While it is a little dark inside, this sushi restaurant is not given enough credit. It is certainly a hidden gem in Galena. We brought our parents here for their anniversary weekend and they loved...every single dish and drink they had here. If you have money to indulge, I encourage you to get the sushi boat! We definitely plan to stop here again when we are back in Galena.More

Second best because if I say the best, you wouldn't believe me. It really is great. The pad thai is one of the best my family and I have had and we live in Chicago near little Saigon. The rice dishes in hibachi are delicious....My husband loves the pineapple fried rice, it's pretty darn good considering I don't care for pineapple in my food. The salad that comes with the meal is crispy and tasty. The sushi is excellent too, way too much to name but you can't go wrong. We think it's funny that this place is in Galena, what an unexpected surprise. We stumbled on it last year and now it's all we talk about when we discuss returning to Galena, it's one of the highlights.More

Our lunch exceeded expectations. The teriyaki combination, miso soup and Little Tokyo salad were all outstanding! It was flavorful and the service was excellent. Good value too!

Bento box was very generous, with lots of meat (we had chicken and beef ones) two tasty gyoza, 4 pieces of California sushi roll and rice. Started with soup or salad all for $12-$13 each. Free refills on soda as well.

Little Tokyo was very good, the saki and large punch bowl was very good. The sushi was so fresh and good.
