Sushi rolls were very good and the service was excellent. A great place for a quick lunch and quiet enough for a business meeting.

Little Tokyo is hands down the BEST sushi/ hibachi in town! They dont have hibachi tables, but the food is much better than those places. The establishment is small, and always busy. Well worth the wait!! I can't comment on a certain dish, because I've NEVER had one that I haven't absolutely LOVED!! GO, you won't be dissapointed!

This place is awesome. The staff is phenomenal and the food is delicious especially the hibachi. I brought my kids, and they were so nice to them. It made the visit memorable. I definitely Will go back.

We eat here regularly and always have an excellent meal. The sushi is fresh and high quality. I love that we can eat hibachi without having to watch the "show" that often comes with a meal like this. I just want to eat and talk with my family and not have to listen to the banging and clanking while the... More

I was visiting from out of town, a couple of very close friends that live in the Mt. Lebanon area. They treated us to several amazing restaurants in the area. However I'm sorry to tell you this one missed by miles. I have traveled the entire country and eating at many a quality Japanese restaurant. I'm not a sushi person... More

My husband and I have eaten at Little Tokyo dozens of times and it is consistently excellent. We have tried many sushi restaurants in the Pittsburgh area and this is by far our favorite! The quality of the fish at Little Tokyo is excellent. We typically order a sashimi deluxe platter and rolls to share. Everything is consistently good. The... More

I continue to go back to Little Tokyo for a few reasons: the sushi is very good and reasonably priced, the staff is friendly, there is a good atmosphere, and the location is convenient. The combination of these things have made for an enjoyable experience every time. Even if you're not in the south hills, it is worth the trip,... More

Everything about this restaurant is excellent. The owner, Frank, is always welcoming and charming. The service is personal and attentive. The sushi is fresh and the best in town. The hibachi is always great and perfectly prepared. The wine list is extensive and reasonably priced. We are consistently pleased with everything about Little Tokyo!

Food was good. Atmosphere was nice. Staff was very polite. Sushi tasted great. It was a little pricey for me. More of a date night cost, but I think cost of living could be a little higher here than TN, too.

Thank Gage113
