Diner Reviews
  • "We have been going to Nippon Tei for many years. It is a great place and the addition of the lounge made it even better. The open table reservation was so easy to use...even same day for 7 people. We got the center table in the lounge, which I think is the best table in the house. The food was excellent. Try the Hamachi Kama. This is the fried yellowtail jaw. Many Japanese restaurants do it, but non as well as Nippon Tei."

  • "Food is good, can't complaint. My sashimi was fresh, the rest of the group had different rolls, all happy with it. Exception, is service, we were ready to leave before someone took our drink orders."

  • "I asked my Facebook friends for a recommendation on a sushi restaurant in West County, and Nippon Tei came back as the clear choice, and I totally agree! The spicy tuna roll was the BEST I have ever had, hands down. All of the dishes were not only delicious, but each plate was a beautiful presentation as well. We have just found our new favorite sushi place!"

  • "I was a little frustrated when we were told they were out of high chairsdispite having a reservation and when asked no one knew what the desserts were. And they never came to refill our drinks."

  • "We made a reservation for two. We had never sat on the bar side of this restaurant, which seems to be much quieter and low-key. That was fine for us, but the table setting was unique if you weren't prepared for it. They were Asian inspired low tables with bench seating. This table made it a little difficult to lean over eating sushi, especially for my 6'3" husband. With low tables, it almost would have been more comfortable to sit on the floor. Otherwise, the food was terrific."

  • "We were first sat down at a table with stools and no backs. Was not comfortable and asked for new seats. Ordered and food came. Food was very good. Some of the best sushi in town. However, 1/2 way through meal, a large group of 22 people came in and consumed the entire area. They didn't have them all sitting together and they were running around taking pictures, being loud, etc. On top of that, our service declined. They had 1 waitress for the bar and 1/2 the restaurant. We never got our drinks refilled and had to track her down to get a check and pay it. I would get this sushi to go anytime, but unlikely will dine in again."

  • "Sushi was very good as usual. We were a group of 11. Most of us ordered sushi. Sushi chef was considerate that they made sure everyone got at least one roll in the first round, when the regular menu food came out."

  • "Highly recommend the Manchester roll (large portion for the price) and the lobster roll. We went there for New Year's Eve and the place was obviously busy so the service was a little slower than normal but the food was hot and excellent and we were not in a rush."

  • "We've been going to this neighborhood sushi spot for years. On New Year's Eve, we enjoyed their delicious crab rangoon, their special new year's roll and, of course, hot sake. The food is always great and the servers are always friendly. Highly recommend!"

  • "Have dined here before and had mixed experiences. Needed a place that has sushi plus some other food for a non-sushi eater. Service was slow throughout meal including a more than 10 minute wait to even get a first visit from our waitress. Sushi was good with a few interesting rolls, but I have had better. Actually miso soup was highlight. Others had cooked Thai food that they liked. Would go back, but not rush back."

  • "The food here has amazing fresh sushi. I eat a lot of sushi and the spicy tuna rolls are the best! Not only is it fresh, but you get a lot of the tuna, its not a small portion, but a large amount in the roll. Get to the county and enjoy this special place. Worth driving to this spot wherever you are."

  • "Ordered a bento box, chirashi, baked Manchester roll, and tuna tartar. All were very delicious. The tuna was quite spicy, but I like spicy. The bento box was a very good value for the quality, variety and amount of food. Chirashi was off menu, but good value and one of the best I've had in a long time. It had been a few years since our last visit to Nippon tei - I don't know why."
