My husband and I were here for our anniversary. We ordered the meal for two and we were very pleased; it came with a variety of meats/seafood and vegetables. It was well prepared and delicious. The presentation was nice as well. We will be eating here again.

Not what it used to be and that's very disappointing. Food is average now but prices haven't changed.

The sushi was very good Service was good The decor and ambience was basic. Overall a good experience, if you like sushi it is a place you cannot go wrong with. It is not a romantic high end eatery. I believe it is the only sushi joint around in that area

This sushi was seriously good. The restaurant was not crowded, pleasantly quiet. We tried several rolls, sashimi, and the miso soup. All were delicious. I would recommend that you not be in a hurry when eating here, but the sushi is worth the wait! The XO roll was amazing.

If your in the mood for amazing sushi, soup or whatever your hungry for..this is the place. This is a treat for us because it's a little more than we would normally spend on a dinner for 2...but the old expression. .."you get what you pay for"...holds true here. Would highly recommend. ..it's amazing! ! Enjoy!!

Last week a friend and I went down to Little Tokyo for lunch. We each had a little bottle of saki and shared some entrees so we could share the experience, and they were all very good. I will be back.

We were shocked at how good the sushi was at Little Tokyo. We went not expecting much and were pleasantly surprised. This is the 3rd time we have been and every time has been really good. We are big fans of their rolls. So far none of them have disappointed us. We will definitely be back next time we are... More

Four of us went there for my birthday. I had calamari for an appetizer, which was hot and crispy. Our friends had scallops, which were delicious and beautifully presented. For the entrée I ordered regular sushi, which was varied and delicious; then banana tempura with green tea ice cream. Our only complaint is that two dinner dishes were brought before... More

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
