High Quality FREE FOOD! – I've been to Japan, I've tried many sushi places. This one is one of the best. It does not only have very tasty reasonably priced, creative sushi. It gives you free appetizers, and free deserts sometimes when you go for dinner. And I'm not talking crackers, I mean free crab or spicy tuna appetizers.
My favorite dish here is the salmon avocado salad.
I have gone to many sushi places and the only thing I can say is that in Arizona I went to a Sushi place with more variety of sushi's--still, this is still my favorite for the free dishes, HIGHLY responsive waiting staff, and high quality food.
Best Sushi Restaurant – Being raised in Japan, sushi takes a nice chunk of my life. Which means I'm very picky about the restaurants I visit. Little Tokyo is, by far, the best sushi restaurant I've come across ever since moving to the US. The staff is extremely kind and easy to make friends with and the sushi chefs really know what they're doing. What pleased me the most, was the quality of the sushi/sashimi, it's always fresh. When I learned the old owner, Juno, had left the business to go back to New York, I was afraid they quality and atmosphere would change. However, it's still the Little Tokyo I've come to know and love. Absolutely worth every cent.
Just okay – We went there for the first time two weeks ago when some colleagues recommended going there for lunch, claiming they are really good. I eat sushi a lot and can tell if a fish have taste (fresh) or if it doesn't (frozen). This place didn't impress me at all; the sashimi doesn't have any fresh fish taste and the salad dressing doesn't taste fresh too. The only thing that impressed me was that they gave us two free appetizers on the house, I thought my colleagues ordered them but turned out they are compliments from the restaurant. But the appetizers were quite oily and didn't taste that great either. I don't really want to write a mediocre review for any restaurant but do feel I want to say something since I saw all these raving reviews and don't understand what all the hype is. Maybe I went at the wrong day when the good chef had a day off?
Easily the best...! – I have used citysearch for a couple years now, but after reading the last two reviews I feel compelled to make my first ever post. Little Tokyo is outstanding! The chefs clearly know their stuff. The fish is brought in fresh daily from Boston and New York, not frozen like the last reviewer states. Bottom Line, you will never find sushi of this quality, for this price! An absolute must try for sushi lovers.
Mediocre food and sushi – I find my self agreeing with the person who wrote the review below. Basically took the words our of my mouth. Descent food and descent price. Nothing special and inexperienced sushi chef that didn't know much but thinks otherwise. I don't blame the people that gives high praises to this restaurant. They don't have any good japanese restaurant near this area. The free apps and desserts are a plus. Good idea to keep customers happy and think this is really good sushi joint.
What's with all the high praises?!? One of the best?..I think not – First of all the service was not good....I don't mind the small size and the not so good location. I always judge by the food. I've been enjoying sushi for a long time..and I hear from someone that this place was AWESOME. Obviously he doesn't know what he is talking about. Kitchen food was just ok...nothing bad or good. The sushi rolls I ordered were definitely not "tasty". Far as the sushi and sashimi goes...nothing special. I'm a veteran sushi eater...and I know my fishes. They only carried frozen fishes...normally a descent sushi joint will have lots of frozen fishes but they atleast have a few that are fresh. The choices of the sushi were limited and quality was just ok. Price?..it's not that expensive...but watch out..the menu looks like they are reasonable but some of the items are overpriced... Especially for their quantity. The free appetizers and desserts are a plus and makes up for their "below average" food. Would I go back?...for me the answer is no..I'd rather get good sushi and food and sacrifice the little freebies. Don't get me wrong...it's not the worst in the triangle..but definitely not one of the best.
FANTASTIC SUSHI! – We're new to the area but this has to be some of the best sushi in the Triangle! We've lived in New York, Chicago, St. Louis, and have eaten sushi around the world and this is really some of the best for the price. The rolls are very interesting and original and many are topped with interesting sauces (that are original but not overwhelming). There are a couple of good waiters and a couple of really bad ones so you're either going to have great service or bad service. Either way, the sushi is worth it and they bring you a free appetizer or two and free dessert. You'd never guess the quality of the food from the outside since it's in an ugly strip mall and the interior decor is hideous with brown splattered paint all over the walls and black splattered paint all over the ceilings. Despite the problems (bad service, hideous decor), this place is completely and totally worth going to for the sushi. Let's just hope they keep their prices reasonable!
Best sushi in the triangle – Little Tokyo is my favorite place to eat sushi in the triangle. The sushi is fresh and affordable and the service is great. We do take out about once a week and they have no problem accommodating us. If you do take out on the weekend, it's important to order early because it is a very popular crowded place. I recommend the New Heaven Roll and the Godfather roll.
They dont take order to go on friday night or saturday night – For the past few weeks. I called Little Tokyo on friday night and saturday night to order some sushi and each time they told us "we are busy and can't take order to go". Heck, one time we came in and ordered sushi to go and they told us "We are busy now so we can't take any order to go".
Another time, we got lucky because they were not busy but they still told us "it will be 45min"
May be when you order sushi, they have to take the boat out to catch some fish, cook the rice ... ??
The place is small and all the sushi ingredients are either raw or already cooked so I don't know why it's taking them so long to make one.
If you don't believe me, just call them on a friday night or saturday night and order togo
Best Sushi – Little Toyko is a hidden treasure in Cary. The service is great, the sushi is to die for!! They bring you free starters and dessert! We love the "Hidden Dragon" "Crouching Tiger" and "Super Crunch" rolls! It is a must try! ENJOY!
