The Root and Spice of Healthy Eating

Welcome to Little Tokyo, located in the heart of West Yorkshire, bringing you Japanese style cuisine with a Yorkshire twist. Our salad dressing, curry sauce, soya sauce, teriyaki sauce and the gelatos are all made on the premises to ensure the unique flavours and quality.


Sushi is the most famous Japanese dish outside of Japan, and one of the most popular dish among the Japanese.

In past centuries, “sushi” referred to pickled fish preserved in vinegar. Nowadays, sushi can be defined as a dish containing rice which has been prepared with sushi vinegar.

In Little Tokyo, our sushi is freshly made every day with sushi grade fish which is among the freshest, highest quality seafood that one can buy from the market (ie. the golden standard for any seafood dish that involves raw fish or slightly cooked fish).

There is always room for sushi, please enjoy!



Little Tokyo was opened two decades ago in year 2000 as a small family run restaurant, we started humbly with merely eight tables. Being one of the first Japanese restaurants in Western Yorkshire, Little Tokyo became an instant hit in town, our capacity grew significantly within a year to accommodate over 100 customers upstairs and downstairs. We 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. Our unique décor and elegant ambience: such as the oriental wooden bridge, underneath of which are the colourful koi carps sliding gracefully all year round, the characteristic wooden tables and chairs hand crafted by the restaurant owner, an array of gourmet Japanese dishes with a Yorkshire twist, the friendly and attentive staff, all added up to provide a distinguished and memorable dining experience to many customers.

Little Tokyo will be celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2020. A series of fun-filled activities will be posted on the Facebook and website, please watch out for more details and join us in the celebration of the milestone year and be a part of the historic moments.
