I always saw this restaurant but never went. Finally decided to stop in for dinner while out shopping and made the right choice. We didn't try the hibachi but had the sushi. It was excellent as was the service. Our waitress Karina was very friendly and insightful about the menu. We will definately be dinning here again.

We thought the wait was a little lengthy, although they were running a special and this time of year I guess its to be expected. It was well worth the wait however when we got to the table and we now understand why this place is so poplar. The amount and quality of the food was exceptional and our waiter... More

Thank you Robert R for your feedback, i'm so glad that you enjoyed, about the wait is 10 minute before we close the table ether someone join your table or not, and turn it to the chef, and take another 7 minute max to prepare your food before they can go to your table! I'm not sure why you have... More

I have eaten sushi from coast to coast and Lil Tokyo is now in my top 3 (the other 2 are in AL and MT).  This place has some specialty rolls that are very unique and very good.  We tried the Sunrise, Angel Hair, White Christmas, Shrimp and Sea Dragon rolls.  All of them were outstanding but the Shrimp roll...

We love going here... tonight our waiter Edward and our chef Enter both did an excellent job. It was a packed house due to the locals appreciation night, but that didn't make the quality of the service or the food any less amazing than any other time we've come!

My daughter wanted to have dinner with her friends here for her birthday. Sushi was fresh and the service, via Jason, was awesome! Keep in mind this is a habachi restaurant, but I cannot stop talking about the sushi. We will have to make this a once a month stop, especially during the off season.

This place had good reviews so thought we'd try it but were disappointed. Service was slow & food sloppily prepared with inadequately seasoned rice. We ordered spicy tuna, tuna roll, & tempura, each dish forgettable. Not a friendly place & not one we'd visit again. Both the interior & exterior are attractive, but that's where it ends.
