We visited Little Tokyo in October and had a negative experience due to it being very busy (Galena's Halloween parade). Recently, on the Saturday before Christmas, we were on our way back to Dubuque from O'Hare and my son (visiting from NYC) requested we eat at Little Tokyo. Because we had been there several times and knew it to be... More

We just went for Japanese style food, not the sushi. It was fine, but not great. They were preparing a lot of takeout, so maybe that was the problem. Would probably only go again if I really wanted Asian food, as it is the only place on Main Street that serves it.

For the past several years on our anniversary, my husband and I have thoroughly enjoyed the food at Little Tokyo. The food is so fresh and prepared to perfection. We always stop at Little Tokyo and enjoy the quality we always receive.

It is sad for me to write this review as we have always had great service and great food at Little Tokyo. But, here goes: on our way to watch the Galena Halloween parade, we stopped by to put in a reservation for our party of six for 8:00 (an hour and a half later). When we arrived at the... More

My husband and I love sushi and eat it regularly. So glad for Little Tokyo! We've enjoyed every roll we've tried and really love the hibachi! We were pleasantly surprised at the authenticity and flavor. We'll be back for sure.

We'll be back! While not like Chicago's Sushi, the sushi and other foods were really quite nice. The service was especially warm, and took good care of our grandson, too!

The sushi was great considering it was in the middle of farm lands. We were pleased with the spicy salmon roll. The Ultimate Roll was great, too.

I'd actually give Little Tokyo 3-1/2 stars, but it's definitely above average. Nice selection of sushi. I had the bento box dinner with chicken teriyaki and beef teriyaki, which was OK but nothing special. I did like the soup and the salad with ginger dressing. The restaurant was very busy on Saturday evening around 7:00pm, and it seemed like the... More

We get to Galena a few times a year. We've eaten at Little Tokyo as a couple, family of 4, and my wife's birthday party with 12, every meal was wonderful. We returned to this town after being away for a few months. Amy the owner was welcoming and the food consistent as always. I'd recommend the Bento Box and... More

We were very pleased with the food! We were here on a Saturday night and we only had to wait for a few minutes for a table. Service was incredible. Definitely recommend.
