Their sushi is fantastic!! It took a long time to get,but fresh and tasty. They lost our reservation and did little to rectify thee situation. We had to be pushy and ask for tables to be put together. They were going to make us wait for a table to get done. The food was great, but the service brought this... More

After leftovers of holiday trimmings our family was ready for a different flavor profile. Sushi seemed to be just the ticket and Little Tokyo did not disappoint. The pot stickers were particularly good. I appreciated that chef was willing to alter a bento box to suit just my taste. I included a picture. We did not try dessert but the... More

This place is top rated in Galena for a reason. We ALWAYS make a stop here when we visit Galena. Make the trip to the end of the strip and you will not be disappointed.

Sushi and rolls were just fine. Smelled and tasted fresh and were affordable as well. We went in for lunch and the place was deserted due to poor weather, but service was prompt and courteous and lunch specials were filling too. I did not care for the tea as it seemed it was brewed with some sort of grass perhaps?... More

I've eaten here twice and both times was very happy. The first time I had their hibachi fried rice which was amazing and the last time my husband and I both had their dinner bento box. You get a good variety of food and it was all delicious. I'll definitely come back!

It's a rainy day. We found this little restaurant from Tripadvisor and gave it a try. It is Japanese store run by Chinese - servers and sushi chef are from mainland China. Restaurant is very clean. Menu is very straightforward. We picked out Bentos from children menu and from adult menu, plus sushi rolls for our lunch. Bento is a... More
