After reading reviews we decided to give them a try. It was a little off putting that the restaurant was more than half empty on a Saturday night but like we discussed, there are many choices before you get to Little Tokyo, it is early in the season and people eat at different times depending on evening activities. We are... More

Good sushi & sashimi, hibachi suppers & REAL tea (not the fountain stuff...yuck)! Large portions. Definite stop while in Galena.

Delightful space and wonderful cuisine. Great sushi, but the Bento Box Lunch Special is our favorite. The Bento offers choices of several main dishes such as Teriaki Salmon, smothered with onions in a delicious sauce, or Teriaki steak, or Tofu, or Shrimp, and also includes the best fried rice I have ever eaten, four pieces of California roll, two pot...

I cannot believe the quality for a small town in Illinois. The sushi was good, as were the bento box lunches. Even the friend rice, which is usually nothing spectacular at most places was tasty. Good service, great food.

Friendly owners and good food. Had the love boat which was a variety of sushi and sashimi which to our surprise came on a model boat. Very nice knife work on the fish and vegetables to make a beautful display.

We were in Galena and had lunch at Little Tokyo. The sushi was well done and the same high quality that you find in a large urban area. All food items were very tasty and I agree with other TA reviewers that you get a generous amount of food. We did order the gyoza appetizer and the soup also had... More

Good sushi rolls and sushi lunch plates. Fish was fresh, and there was a Friday lunch time sea food delivery while we were at the restaurant. Tataki beef was very tasty.

My husband and I have eaten at most of Galena's restaurants many times, but never Little Tokyo, though we had heard from more than one person that we should give it a try. So, we did. We easily made reservations on a Friday night for 5:30 on a Saturday night of one of Galena's busiest weekends of the year. We... More

This is a nice place to dine in Galena. Sushi was good! They offered basic rolls and some specialty rolls. The "Denise roll" was out favorite. Dining room was quite large and had a nice atmosphere. Good alternative to burgers and beers.
