“Best spicy tuna rolls”
Reviewed 25 April 2011

Well, I have tried many of the sushi restaurants in Bellingham, and Little Tokyo's sushi is the freshest and tastiest around. I know the salmon is wild salmon, so maybe that's part of it. I just find the rolls delicious and mouth-watering. And pretty reasonably-priced too. May be the best sushi I have found in 4 states.

“Best Japanese food including Sushi in Bellingham!”
Reviewed 8 August 2009

Where do I begin....Little Tokyo is hands down the best Japanese restaurant in Bellingham not only for its sushi, but its main meals as well. The sushi rolls range from the greatest sushi roll I've had, the Ruby roll (it has shrimp tempura and avacodo in the middle, with tuna on the top, then deep fried yams, spicy sauce and eel sauce), the spider roll (deep fried soft shell crab), to the classic California roll (immitation crab meat, cucumber, avacodo).

The Japanese meals are awesome, especially the bento boxes. And there is a bento box on special every lunch M-Sat. and every dinner M-Thurs. Bento boxes if your not familiar are box plates with little compartments. An example of a bento box that is offered at Little Tokyo includes, chicken teriyaki, assorted tempura (deep fried veggies and some prawns), gyoza (pan fried pot stickers), salad (with homemade salad dressing), rice, and miso soup (best miso I've ever had).

The service is also great, food comes fast and waitresses are friendly.

They also do to-go orders which is great.

Also, in terms of alcohol they offer hot sake as well as beer and wine.

Overall, I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone.

“Best Japanese in Bellingham!”
Reviewed 26 June 2008

Little Tokyo has the best food and the best prices for their food compared to the other Teriyaki / Sushi restaurants in Bellingham. This is a definite must-dine location if you're in the mood for sushi / teriyaki. They have great daily specials and on Wednesdays their full nigiri menu is $1 per piece (unlike other sushi happy hours in Bellingham which offer a limited menu).

Great place to eat!!
