Fans of quality Japanese food should go to this impressive little spot. There’s plenty of authenticity to affairs here, from the kimonos of the waitresses to the quality knife skills from the itamae working wonders with some surprisingly good sushi.
Little Tokyo was opened two decades ago in year 2000 as a small family run restaurant, they started eight tables. Being one of the first Japanese restaurants in Western Yorkshire, Little Tokyo became an instant hit in town, their capacity grew significantly within a year to accommodate over 100 customers upstairs and downstairs.
They were rated “Top 10 restaurant” by the Yorkshire Evening Post in 2000, “Top 100 restaurants in the UK” by the Sunday Observer in 2002, and “Top 5 restaurant” by Galaxy 105 in 2003. We were also included in “The Good Food Guide” from 2003 to 2005.
Throughout the years, Little Tokyo continues to be one of the most favourable Japanese restaurants in Yorkshire, and celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2020
