After reading reviews we decided to give them a try. It was a little off putting that the restaurant was more than half empty on a Saturday night but like we discussed, there are many choices before you get to Little Tokyo, it is early in the season and people eat at different times depending on evening activities. We are so happy we tried them. We had two very large, beautiful and yummy rolls (Dan's roll & another spicy one - name escapes me), the tempura shrimp and the spring roll apps. The presentation was just lovely and the food was delicious.
We will move Little Tokyo to the top of our Galena favorites. The staff were friendly and tentive. If you love sushi, tempura and such, you will not be disappointed.

Good sushi & sashimi, hibachi suppers & REAL tea (not the fountain stuff...yuck)! Large portions. Definite stop while in Galena.

Delightful space and wonderful cuisine. Great sushi, but the Bento Box Lunch Special is our favorite. The Bento offers choices of several main dishes such as Teriaki Salmon, smothered with onions in a delicious sauce, or Teriaki steak, or Tofu, or Shrimp, and also includes the best fried rice I have ever eaten, four pieces of California roll, two pot stickers, and orange slices. A very filling, wonderful meal. Amy and her husband (the sushi chef) are young, service minded, very sweet and friendly. We love taking out of town guests to Little Tokyo to introduce them to excellent Japanese fare and they never leave disappointed...or hungry.

I cannot believe the quality for a small town in Illinois. The sushi was good, as were the bento box lunches. Even the friend rice, which is usually nothing spectacular at most places was tasty. Good service, great food.

Found this place based upon Yelp reviews, and love it. Great place for a light lunch. Sushi was quick and perfectly made.
