“Expensive but nice ”
Reviewed 15 February 2014 via mobile

Not the best japanese I've been to.. The staff are ok but quite pushy and it's not a relaxing meal. We had sushi/sashimi combo and it was expensive for what we got if u ask me. I've had better and cheaper in other places although not in Leicester. Would go back again however

Thank Cookvic

“Great food but be quick!”
Reviewed 13 February 2014

Been here a few times with friends, food is always really tasty and great value for money. Service is quick but they don't like you to hang around and can be a bit pushy if you are taking a long time to decide what to have or taking a long time to enjoy your meal. Not the place for a leisurely meal but a great place for a quick bite to eat.

“Food tasted good, although not what was expected ”
Reviewed 20 December 2013 via mobile

Whilst the food tasted quite nice, it was not the stuff that we expected when presented with the menu. Ramen was incorrect (should be a soup). Staff were friendly though.

Sunny C, Guest Relations Manager at Little Tokyo, responded to this review, 22 December 2013
Dear Customer, Apologies for the confusion caused, you are right to expect Ramen to come in a soup base. We separated the ‘soup based ramen’ and ‘stir fry ramen / chilli ramen’ in the ‘noodle in soup’ and ‘stir fried’ sections in our menu respectively. To avoid future confusion, we will explain to our customers before ramen orders are being taken. Many thanks for your custom and kind feedback, we hope to see you again soon. Merry X’mas & Happy New Year.

“A very nice experience”
Reviewed 19 December 2013 via mobile

We had two of the Moriawase combo set meals as it was a good way to sample a range of what Little Tokyo has to offer, and also for speed of dining. The food was very nice, it was served very timely and the service was good and attentive. A very pleasant experience that will be repeated.
