Best sushi I've found in Houston 5/26/2011

It's been a while since I've been here because I've since moved, but this is the freshest sushi I've found in Houston. They use real wasabi (ground instead of the powder mix) and shiso leaves instead of the plastic ""grass"" sheets. I love sitting at the bar since the chef usually gives us freebies off the ends of the rolls or new creations to try. The food is very traditional, so you will not find exotic rolls that are in the new, hip joints. There are usually many Japanese dining there and the service is friendly, though they can get backed up. more

Best Authentic Japanese Restaurant in Town 3/11/2011

When the Japanese consul wants to have a reception at the consulate, he asks Toshiro Sato to prepare dinner for him. more

Outstanding 3/25/2009

Chef Toshihiro Sato knows what the heck he is doing. Contrary to the previous negative post this place will meet your traditional sushi desires. Of the ""Big 4"" Japanese owned/operated places in town I like Teppay the best because Chef Sato takes such personal care of his clients, even 1st timers. There are minor issues, the mentioned restroom is not a resort and the waitstaff will try your patience if you sit at a table from time to time, but the quality and diversity of food is truly top drawer. Try the aji sashimi served on the fish carcass, then have the bones fried up kara age style. It's quite the presentation and adventure, not to mention that it's highly edible. Last week Chef Sato had tobiwu, flying fish, flown in from Japan. The nigiri from this bad boy was ridiculous. Topped with finely shredded scallion and ginger with a drizzle of the Chef's own ponzu, it was amazing. Don't let the ulcerated opinion dissuade you, this place is the real deal. Pros: High quality traditional sushi experience Cons: Service at tables can be slow more

Licensed Robber. Even one star is a mercy for Teppay. 4/13/2008

If you want to make someone suffer from gastric ulcer, please take him/her to Teppay on Westheimer. Pros: gastric ulcer Cons: you should have donated your money to charity organizations, or even paid a speeding ticket more

Try Kenny's Special Sushi Rolls! 10/31/2007

My boyfriend and I go here for entertainment, good sushi and sake! The fish is fresh (no dyes in the tuna) and the wasabe is hottt! Japanese food made by a Japanese chef, who has studied in Japan - although he is young - is better than a Mexican behind the sushi bar slicing your sashimi. If you ask the chef to be creative, he has come up with some signature rolls that aren't on the menu, but if you give him an idea of what ingredients you like, he can come up with something tasty as well as asthetically pleasing. However, if you prefer authentic fare, they offer it as well. We recommend this establishment to sushi beginners, as well as those who are experienced Japanese culinary experts, and we've been to all the sushi spots in Houston!! Pros: Sushi, Parking, Sake and Tatami Rooms more

YUMMY! 7/20/2005

The freshest Sushi I have found in town! The Sushi like butter in your mouth. No chewy Sashimi here! The rolls are excellent as well. My only complaint is they allow smoking and for such a small restaurant, it should certainly be non-smoking! Other than that, the service is great and it is quite cozy inside. Perfect for eating alone or with a very small group. Not great for large parties. Pros: Fresh Sashimi, Friendly Staff Cons: They allow smoking more

Ex-favorite Jap rest. 2/20/2004

Used to be my most favorite Japanese rest---best quality in town after Fuji! Extremely expensive---friends used to call it $80 buffet!(per person of course). But it was still worth it due to the quality. Unfortunately, quality has gone down(even the sea weed for the sushi has changed from crispy to soft(very BAD in a highly-rated, real Japanese rest). After all, quality still better than most Am-Japanese rest. Pros: location, quality Cons: , service more

Cozy Kitchen 2/11/2003

I live around the corner and every time I walk here the staff always takes great care of me and my company. The food is always exceptional and I don't think I have every heard a complaint from any table while I dine there. more

Fun, but not the best 11/5/2002

Teppay's new sushi chef is very funny but a little young (21-25 I would guess) to have enough experience to prepare a quality sushi meal. You wont be bored but for the best and most authentic sushi, teppay just isnt there yet. Better than miyako or cafe japon but just not the cream of the crop. Pros: fun chef, uncomfortable bar Cons: sushi, ask for water more
