No, there wasn't catfish on the menu. This is an excellent sushi restaurant. We have eaten sushi through out the US including from Japanese chefs in Hawaii, this was an excellent one of the best average priced dinners we have had. My wife commented that the rolls were tighter than anywhere else. She hates it if they fall apart when... More

We love this place! Our favorite rolls are the Romeo & Juliet, Sweetheart and Sunshine. You can't go wrong with those!

We decided to try this restaurant for an evening meal and all four of us really enjoyed our meals. The service was good and the food was excellent.

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

We had hibachi rice(chicken) , shrimp tampura and Japanese Noodiles soup like something. I forgot the name but it was great. Friendly staff. Clean restaurant. Highly recommended.

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.
