Good food - Great looking makeover!

New owners & a make-over made all the difference. Little Tokyo has always has good food, but the interior was a little tired-looking. They've had a make over, and it looks great! Food is still YUMMY and a good value.

My husband and I were driving to Big Bear and we decided to stop for sushi along the way. This was the Japanese restaurant that Siri pointed us to, so we decided to give it a chance. We showed up mid-afternoon on a Thursday and it was really busy. Always a good sign! We shared three rolls- Hawaiian and a... More

We ate here for lunch on a Friday. Walked in at 11:40, and there were just a few people inside. It became more crowded as lunch progressed. The waiters were very accommodating, knowing we were waiting for the 2nd friend to arrive. We asked for soup and Edamame early because we were starving and they brought it, and helped us... More

Sad day... After going to this restaurant over 20 years and knowing the owners and workers like family, this restaurant has changed owners. I had to try at least once to see what has changed... They did do a good job renovating the restaurant but that is the only positive. The quality and value are not there.

This is my favorite Japanese restaurant. It may not be the fanciest but I always leave happy. The miso dressing on the salad is fantastic and by itself worth the trip, but the chicken is the most tender and flavorful I have tasted. Their rolls are delicious too. I come here as often as I can.

This review is long-overdue as Little Tokyo is one of our favorite restaurants and certainly the best sushi in the area. We heard about it from Yelp, but didn't know quite what to expect except that it was "authentic." When we arrived the first time we almost sat at the restaurant section, but when I glanced at the menu it... More

Went for sushi with my daughter the other night. What a disappointment. Indifferent service, mediocre food.

Always have good times at the sushi bar. They can make any of my request. Try the spicy tuna hand roll with the garlic olive oil, it's to die for!

Unless you want to drive to LA, this is the best sushi for miles around. The owners of LT are extremely professional and very kid-friendly without sacrificing quality of food or decor. We've taken our daughter here since she was one month old and the waitstaff has always been very courteous. Their tempura udon is the best I've ever had... More

Would you pay for water in any restaurant ? Well, you don't pay for tea in Japan. Would you pay for some more bread in a restaurant ? Well, you don't pay for an extra bowl of rice in Japan. This is one of many litmas tests of whether you've walked into an American restaurant or an authentic Japanes erestaurant.... More
