Visited today for lunch. Had a warm welcome with great food. With an alcoholic drink each you are looking about £25 per person, we picked a selection of different dishes. And had to order the dumplings twice as they were so good.

What hit me personally was the unpleasant smell of used cooking oil (rancid) as we entered. I mentioned to the waiting staff who attended our table and we were told they had a 'technical problem with the extractor'. Reassured, we chose to stay to eat. Restaurant did not 'feel' clean, just my instinct. For me, wish we hadn't stayed. I... More

Thank you very much for your review. To our surprise, the review came 3/4 months after your visit. The open kitchen did cause some smell due to poor extraction. We had no complaint about that since, with better extraction, ventilation and use of an ionic air purifier. About those vegetarian items, we did not receive similar feedback about those items....

Decided it was about time to check this place out as it's fairly local - it was a brilliant evening out. Staff are friendly and attentive, and the food is fantastic. Opted for a sharing platter of appetisers and a couple of the set meals in boxes. Everything was well cooked and tasty on the app front, and the mix... More

I visited Little Tokyo at a lunch time mid-week. The have an offer, spend £25 and get £5 off. Despite this, I would still say that the food is very overpriced for what it was. I have visited many sushi restaurants and honestly £22 for about 18 pieces of sushi is a bit dear. Especially when it's not put together... More

My partner and myself visited for a meal as my partner loves Japanese food. As less of an enthusiast and a vegetarian I was less keen! How wrong I was. The food was authentic and tasted fantastic and the staff were so friendly and helpful. I particularly enjoyed the katsu curry followed by the green tea ice cream.
