We visited Galena for a few days. And enjoyed eating at Little Tokyo twice. The food was outstanding! We have visited Japan a few times and still enjoy the memory of the delicious food that we had in various cities in Japan. At Little Tokyo they have a well appointed menu with appetizers, entrées, tempura, seafood.. We especially enjoyed stuffed... More

This had a great combination of steak and fish so couples who didn't want to try sushi have lots of options. A local bartender recommended it and we were very happy. Very fresh fish and lots of choices. Great service. Only turnoff was all the photo prints of food blocking the Windows. But when you get inside its lovely, charming... More

If you are in Galena, Little Tokyo is a must for sushi lovers! Good service, quality food, and a casual/friendly atmosphere. Typically you won't find a good Japanese restaurant in a small town like Galena, so this one is highly recommended.

I eat sushi about four times a month, so I would consider myself a pretty good judge of sushi. I had the spicy tuna roll, the vegetable roll, and the sweet potato roll. Everything was so fresh and the flavors were really great. These were definitely the best rolls I have ever had. Next time I will try some Maki.... More

I eat here every time I am in Galena. The food authentic and the staff are wonderful. My niece and nephew (ages 14 & 21 ) came with me this time and we ate there two days in a row once for dinner and back again for lunch. We can not get enough. Their seaweed salad is great! Sashimi is... More

Good sushi, beautifully presented, was not what I expected to find in Galena. The food and service were both outstanding; my daughter had the sushi/sashimi combo, and I had a dinner bento box with sushi and teriyaki salmon. Both meals were outstanding and portions were very generous. Their prices were also very good, particularly for the quality and quantity served.

The restaurant is under new ownership and as locals who frequented minimally twice a month we were hoping for the best. Well, it has exceeded our expectations. Fresh as ever and we do mean fresh!! Some new additions to the menu which are spot on! I'm a sashimi lover and it is the best, hands down. Hard to believe you... More
