Excellent Food and Service but boy, those drink prices! Count on $10 per drink or more.

We had brunch at Teikoku 2 weeks ago and went back this past weekend for dinner. The food is unbelievable and the staff is awesome, attentive and knowledgeable. It's our new favorite place! Thank you.

First time visitor to this restaurant and the Sunday brunch. Large selection to choose from. Food was good but not outstanding. $25.00 cost was in line with selection and not overpriced. Ambiance fits the theme of the restaurant and was pleasant. Our waiter was just OK. Not all that attentive. We had to ask for refills on water and other drinks. I may or may not return. It would not be my first choice.

I love the food and friendliness at Teikoku. The jumbo lump crab spring roll is fabulous. I also recommend the crispy calamari. The sashimi is so artfully presented and very very fresh. We almost never have dessert when we are out for dinner, but the Teikoku Soufflé' (warm chocolate ganache center with vanilla bean gelato) is very special. Overall, this was the best dinner out that we've had in a long time.

We were seated immediately for our brunch reservation. This was our first time there for brunch, and we were delighted with the variety and quality of food presented. We received plenty of attention from wait staff, and were not rushed from our table when we finished eating. Overall a terrific experience, and we will be back!

New Year’s Eve and the place was busiest I’ve ever seen it. Host/Hostess stand had 4 people standing around, but only handled customers arriving for reservations AND phone calls one at a time. Gave a pretty chaotic impression with people milling around everywhere. No space to wait at bar. Once seated, service was good considering there were several large parties. Food great as always, but hard to choose. Specials were nothing outstanding. Way too noisy for someone with hearing impairment. Next time I’ll ask to sit in the room to the side and try the Omakase menu...

We have eaten at Teikoku previously and decided to celebrate a birthday dinner there. It was the usual good experience, the seafood drunken noodles were good along with the sushi we picked the Calamari was not worth it. Service was excellent as usual.

We always think of Teikoku for special occasions because it offers great food and a warm atmosphere. The sashimi platter was especially fresh, with superb presentation. Our group enjoyed the Kobe beef that you cook yourself on a hot stone, a special of Alaskan cod with lobster mashed potatoes, sesame encrusted tuna, the surf and turf roll (amazing!) and the fresh sashimi platter. It was our son's birthday and they arrived with a tasteful presentation of green tea cake and gelato for him. We can't say enough good things about this gem of a spot. So glad we're only 12 minutes away, but we'd travel much further for Teikoku if we had to!

Teikoku offers some of the best sushi in the Philly suburbs. We enjoy sitting at the sushi bar because we like interacting with the sushi chefs and watching them prepare the food. Plus they often give us some tasty treats to eat while our food is being prepared. We ordered the chef's choice sashimi platter and it was amazing. We have been eating sushi/sashimi for 40 years, way before it became mainstream, so the chef's choice works well for us. You can always let them know if there is something you don't eat, but you need to be open and or adventurous to order this option. The toro (belly tuna) was among the best I've eaten here, and Tako (octopus) was excellent -- not chewy at all. We really enjoyed out meal -- one of the best we've had here.

I took my son there on Christmas Eve, to celebrate his college graduation. He was thrilled by the place, as the restaurant is try beautiful, with a warm and inviting decor. We experimented with a flight of three sakes, and shared a crab roll starter which was delicious. We also decided to share several small plate samplers of sushi, sashimi and lobster dumplings as well as a piece of chocolate lava cake. Fun time, memorable food and service and not too hard on the wallet. Great experience.

Perfect as always. Derek always makes sure our experience is first class. This will always be our number one choice and place for special celebrations as it has been for over a decade. The Teikoku crew and staff have become our family. The food in incredible and by far the best sushi I have ever come across and I’ve traveled across the globe. I’m so glad to have this place in our own back yard. Teikoku has become the bar to which all others are measured against.

My husband took me on one of our first dates here almost 12yrs ago and we haven't stopped talking about the Godzilla Roll since. We chose to come back for a special birthday birthday recently and it was delicious. Seaweed salad was mild and fresh, hot and sour soup was hearty and thick, yellowtail ceviche was slammin - super fresh! We went HAM on sushi: Godzilla Roll (not as great as we remembered but absence makes the heart grow fonder), Special Roll (VERY good but needed SOMETHING), and a spicy salmon roll (total winner! It's hard to make an average roll amazing, which Teikoku absolutely did). Creme Brulee for dessert... average but always a goodie. I do love Teikoku, it'll always have a special place in my heart. We felt it was a tad overpriced, but like I said, we went HAM on food and may or may not have ordered 6 house sakes. Great service and ambience, I always recommend it to friends.

I was immediately struck by the decor and ambiance. It felt similar to some of the swanky Asian places in Las Vegas that I've visited. However, they do not have Las Vegas prices. Everything was very reasonable and I was pleased with the value. The food is plated in such a way that makes the dishes as visually stunning as they are delicious. Our waiter was friendly, knowledgeable and checked on us just the right amount. Would definitely go back!

The lunch boxes are an unbeatable value for diversity, quality and quantity of food in one meal. I absolutely love the steak teriyaki. Charred steak with the sweet teriyaki finish is just glorious.

I made ressies on OT and stayed that it was a dinner for my daughters birthday and that we would have a toddler and an infant. When we arrived we were so surprised to have the small private dining room all to ourselves! It was perfect! Our server(s) were very attentive and kind especially to my grandchildren. It was the best!
