3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed yesterday NEW

A bit "rustic chic", but clean with beautiful koi carp on display. There is an extensive and tasty menu. Plenty of options for vegetarian, vegan and gluten free diners, also lots of choice for non-sushi lovers. Polite but rather innattentive service-orders are taken quickly and food delivered quickly and correctly, but takes a while to get plates cleared/they don't check... More

We went here for lunch as we both love Japanese food. It's dark inside and quite atmospheric, tinkling water feature and quirky wooden tables. Some of the tables are traditionally low. We ordered ramen with crackers and yakisoba with ribs in OK sauce from the set lunch menu. Got a huge portion and it was pretty tasty. I wanted a... More

We hated the food here, it was so disgusting that neither me nor my friend could eat it. I was so disappointed as I love Japanese food. The Teriyake was heavy and sweet like it had come out of a bottle and the batter on my friends tampura was horrible. I would never ever go and eat here again. Perhaps... More

Glad I had not read the mixed reviews on here or it could have influenced my decision to eat here. Never eaten Japanese before so I will not comment on how Japanese it really is. I ordered a bento box and found it to be very enjoyable would return but may have to try another Japanese restaurant. Quite liked the... More

Overall a bit below par. Lacked atmosphere and although the place was quiet, plonked next to a chilly exit door. Service was just about polite - if a bit distant. Food very average and not cheap

Little Tokyo is my favourite restaurant in Leeds. I go at least once a month. The vegetation options are great.

This place is a jem, it's so refreshing to vidit an independent cafe/restaurant in the city centre on a Saturday lunchtime, just set back from the shopping crowds. I recommend the Bento Boxes, they are great and come with a little bit of everything, salad, rice, tempura veggies etc. It's fast service and a nice atmosphere too.

Came here for a meal before a night out with some friends. It has a lovely atmosphere, and downstairs there are some "sunken" tables which are a nice touch. The best thing on the menu in my opinion is the bento boxes, which really do give you a bit of everything (in generous portions!) for around £15 a head. The... More
