We had a few different sushi rolls and they were great! The tea was nice as well. Very clean and quiet.

Last week a friend and I went down to Little Tokyo for lunch. We each had a little bottle of saki and shared some entrees so we could share the experience, and they were all very good. I will be back.

We were shocked at how good the sushi was at Little Tokyo. We went not expecting much and were pleasantly surprised. This is the 3rd time we have been and every time has been really good. We are big fans of their rolls. So far none of them have disappointed us. We will definitely be back next time we are... More

Four of us went there for my birthday. I had calamari for an appetizer, which was hot and crispy. Our friends had scallops, which were delicious and beautifully presented. For the entrée I ordered regular sushi, which was varied and delicious; then banana tempura with green tea ice cream. Our only complaint is that two dinner dishes were brought before... More

No, there wasn't catfish on the menu. This is an excellent sushi restaurant. We have eaten sushi through out the US including from Japanese chefs in Hawaii, this was an excellent one of the best average priced dinners we have had. My wife commented that the rolls were tighter than anywhere else. She hates it if they fall apart when... More

We love this place! Our favorite rolls are the Romeo & Juliet, Sweetheart and Sunshine. You can't go wrong with those!

We visited Galena for a few days. And enjoyed eating at Little Tokyo twice. The food was outstanding! We have visited Japan a few times and still enjoy the memory of the delicious food that we had in various cities in Japan. At Little Tokyo they have a well appointed menu with appetizers, entrées, tempura, seafood.. We especially enjoyed stuffed... More

This had a great combination of steak and fish so couples who didn't want to try sushi have lots of options. A local bartender recommended it and we were very happy. Very fresh fish and lots of choices. Great service. Only turnoff was all the photo prints of food blocking the Windows. But when you get inside its lovely, charming... More
