“Good food, maybe too expensive”
Reviewed 22 March 2014 via mobile

We have been to the Little Tokyo tonight and it has been a good experience, if related to the average quality of Japanese restaurant in Leicester that would mostly provide a mall and corporate experience. Nonetheless,the quantity of the food was somehow scarce if compared to other countries in relation to the prices, even if the quality was good for ramen soups, sushi and main dishes in general. The service was really polite even if with some linguistic misunderstanding.

“Quality food, good price, enjoyable meal out”
Reviewed 21 March 2014 via mobile

I visited for the first time in ages and it was just as good as it used to be, delicious platter to share, lovely chicken curry with udon noodles and a few crisp Asahi to wash it down. A good value quick and friendly place with a good atmosphere, will remember to go more often now!

“Poor food / not authentic”
Reviewed 15 February 2014 via mobile

Went with a group of friends, staff got a little bit flustered about serving so many people, despite having taken the reservation. Had beef noodle soup that consisted of around 30grams of sliced beef, bean sprouts, overcooked noodles and bland water, nothing more. Unappetizing, unappealing and nothing like what I had in restaurants all over Europe. Cheap ingredients and overall experience doesn't match the premium prices.

“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

“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.
