The word "Chirashi" means "scattered," so this is basically a big bowl of rice mixed with fish, vegetables, and additional ingredients of your choice. What I received was Sashimi with a side of rice... wish restaurants would do just a little home work to maintain the integrity of the food. On a brighter note, the Sashimi was fresh and great...

In the mood for Sushi, but the server offered us the early bird Hibachi meal. It was a delicious meal, so we had sushi on the side. I shared it with my daughter. It was a great portion to share. Delicious shrimp and chicken with lots of vegetables.

This is the third year my family and I have visited Lil' Tokyo and it just simply the best! It is one of our main reasons for coming here on spring break. We also love the fact that the servers and Hibachi chefs are friendly [this hasn't changed at all]. What did change, however, is the sweet tea recipe. That... More

Food was very good, but how can you do hibachi bad. Waitress was clueless and very, very slow. Even for a laid back vacation she was slow.

Our chef was very good, funny and entertaining. Hibachi food was great. The only thing I did not like was the variety of salad dressings. Only 2 were offered and I did not like either.

I go at least once a month to Lil Tokyo, and can't imagine anything better. The sushi chef lets us know what's fresh so we can make a decision (very hard to choose what delicious sushi to try each time). I can't get enough of the Japanese Eggrolls and the Snow-Crab salad, and absolutely love everything that Frankie makes. I... More
