Little Tokyo is a very small Japanese restaurant run by a family. It is located at the end of a strip center and may easily be missed if you do not get specific turn-off instructions. Seating is limited, and on weekends, you often will have a wait. That aside, the food is prepared only after being ordered and is worth the wait. This is not a place to go for "fast/instant" food. It is also staffed by family, so if one or more are not there, patience and understanding (and good manners) go a long way . The restaurant has close seating, so everyone is aware of other customers around them. A disgruntled couple sitting next to us -- instead of excusing themselves and leaving once they realized that one person was taking orders and serving the whole restaurant, and one other was doing all the preparation and cooking -- sat and complained. We would have preferred they leave; however, they remained and had no complaints about the food once served. GO AS EARLY AS YOU CAN ONCE YOU DECIDE TO HAVE A MEAL THERE. Avoid the popular meal hours and plan to spend time between your order and being served. A complimentary bowl of soup is served after your order is taken plus the traditional cleansing cloths -- a nice touch for those who enjoy Japanese food. The dishes other than Sushi are extensive, so those who are not fond of "raw" will have plenty from which to choose. A favorite at our table was the Shaggy Dragon, and the Shrimp Tempura with a nice dipping sauce was gone almost as soon as it was served. A vegan with our group enjoyed the Edamame and the vegetable tempura. Two in our group of 4 had 2 drinks each - beer and wine. We had more food than most people would need -- and the TOTAL was under $45.00 If you like Japanese food, enjoy spending time over a meal with your guests and like a casual Japanese restaurant, we recommend Little Tokyo in the Montgomery area. They have abbreviated hours and are closed on some days -- so check before going, although there are a number of reasonable restaurants within easy driving distance but not Japanese!

I was hesitant about trying this restaurant because of its location. The sushi was great and the lunch special (3 rolls for $11) can't be beat. The montgomery roll is to die for! The calamari and edaname were also good. The chicken teriyaki was not that great. Immediatley when you sit down, you are greeted with a warm bowl of soup and warm wash cloths. yum!

I have eaten lunch at Little Tokyo five time in the last three weeks and have been constantly amazed at the quality of the sushi for the price-- they have five or six different rolls on their lunch special and they are all delicious-- 2 rolls for $9 or 3 rolls for $11. This is a very small space in a strip mall, but the staff is very friendly and efficient. The atmosphere is not great, but the sushi is superb for the price-- I normally spend $60-70 dollars for a meal for two, but the bill here runs $25. Give them a try- everybody I take here for lunch loves it!

We have eatin at Little Tokyo many times, once 3 times in a week! Little Tokyo is AMAZING. I have eaten at some well known expensive sushi restaurants and I rate Little Tokyo well above them. The sushi and sashimi is super fresh and prices are very reasonable. I can't even finish 1/2 the lunch specials before getting full. The place is small but the staff is very friendly. My husband has shellfish allergies and he asked for a roll he could eat. They made it then put the roll on the menu and named it after him.
