    We (my boyfriend and I) do a monthly date night with my brother and his wife. This past weekend we chose Teikoku, I have been many times but the rest of my party had never been. They all loved everything from the ambience to the food. Our server Annie was spectacular! We will definitely be back!

  • Small selection
    FirstTime
    Dined on 2/14/2014
    The sushi selection was smaller than other restaurants I've been to, so I was underwhelmed. It all tasted fine, but wasn't the best I've had. For desert I tried the carmelized cheesecake and it was a bit room temperature; I'm used to my cheesecake being cold. My friend ordered the fried ice cream and it wasn't warm on the outside like I'm used to fried ice cream being. After I told another friend about my experience there, she said, "Yes, it can be very hit or miss", so perhaps I was on a miss night. Also, the waiter said he could split our checks, then came back and said he couldn't and then ultimately mixed up the amount on our cards. This lessened the experience there.

    We had a 7PM reservation and was seated immediately. The service was a bit slow. It took quite a while for our dinner to arrive. The food was good. We both had dessert. My friend had the creme brûlée and I had the fig ice cream. They had just run out of the green tea gelato. Darn! It's my favorite.

    Great variety of Japaneese and Thai food with (5) Sushi chefs on the weekend. Avocado salad is very tasty and enough for two. Red Curry Chicken was very flavorful and rivals authentic Thai restaurants. Fried Rice with crab is also recommended. Great food and service and our table was ready when we arrived on Saturday night.

    This was our first time to visit Teikuku even though it is within 3 miles of our home. It was extremely expensive. The house wine was $10 per glass! The room was extremely noisy and the tables placed so close together I felt like we were eating with the table next to us, I could hear their conversation. Our server was great, knowledgable and attentive. Our food was excellent. Just dont need to spend $80 on a dinner for 2 we split an appetizer and each had an entre and 1 glass of wine each.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006VIP
    Dined on 1/10/2014
    Teikoku is a fine place to go if you want a loud, noisy restaurant and are not in a hurry. While it features sushi, there are many other items on the menu to satisfy anyone who does not like sushi or Japanese food. The sushi pieces are on the small size compared to other restaurants in the area but tasty nonetheless. The salads are huge and big enough to split three ways for a starter. The waitstaff is pleasant but not the greatest when it comes to making sure the drink glasses are refilled. If nothing else, I love, love, love their gelato. Hard to pick between the cafe mocha and dark chocolate which one is better.

    First visit to Teikoku and really enjoyed it. Started with the lobster dumplings and pork dumplings for appetizers - both of which were very good with a nice thin dough and tasty sauces. For sushi, we shared 4 rolls (California King, Philadelphia, Volcano, and Red Dragon) and all were very good. Teikoku is definitely a nice sushi spot.

    We have been going to Teikoku since it opened and have been impressed by the good food, good service. The dishes are well prepared and reliable. If you want the latest food-fad, this is not your place. The salmon tartare is so good that it is hard to try another first course for fear of missing another opportunity to enjoy this dish.The sushi and house rolls are fresh and carefully made.

    We had reservations at 6:30 two adults for New Years Eve. We were seated immediately but in a loud, high traffic area. The ambience was vibrant, hip and trendy but there were also too many young kids there to really relax. Food and service were fantastic (as always). I recommend going later to avoid the family crowds.

    Outstanding service! From the moment we were seated until the check was paid we had the best service by all who waited on us. My friend had never been here and it was several years for me so the ambience is still warm and welcoming. She is a small eater and normally doesn't order more than an appetizer but had the salmon and oooed and ahhhhd over every bite. We shared the duck appetizer and it was the tastiest and crispest I've ever had. My entrée was lobster with pasta and 1/2 was taken home for another meal. Dessert? Shared pumpkin cheese cake...yum!

    The place looks inviting from the outside and the menu sounded great. Unfortunately like other Asian restaurants around today, all the food and specialty drinks we sampled had a very sugary sweet edge to them which isn't to our liking. It may be what others enjoy as it seems to be a thing. Also, we thought that dining on the day before Thanksgiving would be quiet, but it wasn't. The side dining room wasn't open that night and our server said its only open Fridays and Saturdays. So the main dining area surrounds a large bar that was packed and noisy. The acoustics of bare wood didn't help so I presume they planned it to be noisy and sports bar-like, also not our thing. Service was attentive and accommodating.

    First visit to this restaurant. We did check out the menu online after making reservations realizing they featured a lot of sushi and spring rolls, but decided to give it a try. We all had one of the teriyaki dinners. Steak, shrimp and salmon were good, but nothing to write home about. I love green beans, but they were way too much undercook. A little crisp is one thing, crunchy is not tasty. The white and brown rice was just plain. I guess we expected a little more with these prices and no competition around this area and driving over from East Fallowfield Township. Disappointed.

    As usual, the food was excellent. On this visit however, we were in a dining room off the main room. It was full and quite noisy. Some of the problem could be solved with acoustical solutions to the room. Otherwise, everything was great. Saturday nights are just really busy at any good restaurant. I prefer dining on an off night when it is quieter.

    I've been to Teikoku several times, and it's just as delicious each time I go. The wait staff is attentive, yet not overbearing, knowledgeable, and helpful with unfamiliar menu items. The food came out hot, fresh ingredients, and vibrant flavors! I would recommend the Chicken Satay appetizer, the Tom Ka Gai soup (phenomenal), and the Chay roll ( my absolute favorite)! For the quality, the awesome atmosphere, and the experience, it's wallet-friendly. I was surprised when I got the bill as to how low it was (I was expecting more). We'll be back again and again!
