“Great Japanese vegie- and vegan-friendly restaurant in Brunswick”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Little Tokyo is a great restaurant with so many choices for people who are vegetarian, vegan and/or need gluten free. The menu includes classic, traditional Japanese food and wonderfully tasty, creative options as well. The staff are friendly and helpful.

Ive eaten here twice and enjoyed the meal both times. The only average part is the service. Lunch is a nice deal

“First sushi experience a hit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012 via mobile

This was my first sushi. My date brought me here because she said it was some of the best she had ever had. We ordered yellowtail maki and sweet potato tempura, along with seaweed salad. Very tasty and filling. Highly recommend food. Waiter was very attentive and nonintrusive.

“A Great Choice in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012 via mobile

We have eaten here several times and everything has been wonderful.  The owner or manager has often come to the table to be sure everything is as good as you expected.

The hot towels before the meal are a treat and the atmosphere is delightful.  The entrees come with miso soup, salad and rice.  All that ends up being quite a bargain.  The teriakis are very good as are the noodle dishes.  

Do not be afraid of raw fish.  All sushi does not have raw fish and their menu will guide you as to the ingredients.  Last time we were there, we tried a raw tuna appetizer and it was very good.  If Bobby Flay on the Food Network can happily prepare and eat raw tuna, then it must be safe and delicious and it was.

Try a shrimp tempura sushi roll.  It's a real treat to have the crunchy shrimp in every bite.  Check out the pictures and menu on their web site:

“Fresh Sushi in Brunswick”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

We have eaten here many times, mostly for take-out. They are very quick to get our order ready and also friendly. The sushi and vegetables are fresh and packaged very nicely. They always put extra soy sauce and napkins in the bag as well. I especially like the "Crazy" roll and the "Idaho" (sweet potato) roll. If you are a vegetarian, there are many good options for you here, from the Idaho to asparagus and avocado. We used to have to drive to Portland to get good sushi, so I am very excited that it is now available in Brunswick.
