Try them for take out too!

My wife and I took take out from Little Tokyo while spending the weekend in Galena. We tried the California roll and the Dynamite roll. Both are on their basic sushi menu. The flavors for each were distinct and fresh. We also had the Gyoza (pot stickers) from the appetizer menus. very nice... read more

I love Sushi. I rate this place as average due to the cost and the sushi is average. Meaning not horrible but tasty. The service is ok.

The Tuna tar tar is the best (my favorite). The tiny multi colored caviar on top makes the most delightful popping sensation when you bite into it!! The combination of the tuna, thinly sliced avocado, caviar and delicious sauce is like a party in your mouth. Pair it with the Miso soup and your meal is complete. The service is... More

The restaurant seems like a family owned business like most shops in Galena. The sushi was tasty and well made and presented. The restaurant is on a hill so you can notice the slightly tilted floors if you pay attention. The service is a bit slow but it's a relaxes town so no rush at all. Loved the food and... More

We were in Galena visiting family and stopped in to have lunch. The food was excellent! Fresh seafood! We loved it. My husband is still raving about it and he particularly liked the ginger dressing on the salad. There are a lot of items to select from. It has a cozy cafe setting. It is attached to a nice bar...

My spouse and I always share the King & Queen meal for two - lobster, shrimp, steak with vegetables and fried rice. It's the best. Our friends rave about the sushi, too The presentation of dishes is excellent. Add a nice bottle of wine for a wonderful evening.

My fiance and I had dinner here the night of our engagement. This was the only sushi place in the area, and boy are we glad we checked it out! The menu and selection was amazing, the prices fair, and the food fantastic! We started off the meal with some plum wine and green tea, and miso soup (YUM). I... More

Fresh fish daily in Galena, what a great surprise. Excellent lunch menu. I had the Bento Box, which is a really filling meal. Not cheap, but prices are quite reasonable. Nice, courteous staff. Sushi bar! A separate bar room. Nice ambiance. I'll go again anytime.

We got the love boat and it was fantastic, fresh selection of sushi and sashimi. The fish is consistently fresh and a good selection. The owners take great care in preparation.
