The food was absolutely marvelous. Our server could answer any questions we had and she was a lovely young woman. One nice extra was a champagne (by the flute) on your menu was from a town in France where I went to school in the summer of 1965. What a lovely memory to drink to on New Year's Eve.

We have already recommended the restaurant to several friends and will certainly return there for more delicious meals.

Last two times we have gone, food has not been as great as usual. Had to send back a martini - is it supposed to have floaters in it? Maybe it was the screaming baby seated next to us?

A hidden gem a bit isolated in location but it's well wortht he trip. The service was very good, food was superb and the ambiance was quiet and relaxing. I can't wait to go back. Salmon Tartar, best Sush and the Butterfish was first rate. Drinks were well made, prices are reasonable.

Although I don't live in the area, I always make a point of getting to Teikoku whenever I am in town visiting my parents. The food and service is exceptional and on par with even the top dining destinations in Miami (where we moved), minus the pretentiousness and ridiculous prices. My favorites are the traditional Pad Thai (ask for extra spicy) and the chicken curries, though the sushi rolls are also incredible. Kobe cheesesteak was goid not as delicious as it sounds so pass on that one. Make sure you go early or have a reservation b/c it gets packed. I think it is the best restaurant in the W Chester area.

Had a feeling the night was not going to end well from the begining. Hostess was not real friendly and did not say a word to us when she took us to our table. Took five minutes for the waitress to greet us and provide us with water after we sat. Another ten minutes to get our drinks from the bar. Appetizers came out within a decent amount of time. The entree portion is what we did not get a chance to see or eat. After about an hour and a half and repeatedly asking for updates, we decided we had had enough of waiting and left. People showing up well after us were being served their appetizers and also entrees. We were left waiting with no logical explanantion from waitress or manager. Been here a few times before and never had this problem.

We brought friends of ours to dinner. The Saketinis were flowing and delicious. We loved the atmosphere-the dark wood in the restaurant gives it a cozy and intimate feel. We all loved the Kobe beef Hot Rock Appetizer-yum! We thought the sushi was the best we've had-fresh and sooo good. We also shared the Shrimp Pad Thai and we definitely could have eaten more. I wanted to come back the next night. This is our new go-to for sushi and all foods with an Asian-Fusion flair, and we pretty much crave sushi every weekend!Highly recommended...

While the sashimi, mki roll, calamari salad & desserts were very well prepared and flavorful I was extremely dissapointed in the Seafood paella which provided only 2 pc each of the shrimp,mussles,squid, scallops & salmon. For 22$ there should have been at least 4 pieces each. It was way to much rice.

We had dinner with another couple. They were very accommodating when we requested a table further away from the open kitchen. Menu is varied and food was delicious. Service was also timely without our feeling rushed.

our waitress was kind of snarky and somewhat inattentive... it's always too noisy and the tables need more coziness -- the lamps get in the way and the chairs aren't that comfortable. Sitting at the sushi bar is preferable

"Chef's choice" of sushi/sashimi was all heavily tuna-- very little variety. My companion ordered a cocktail that had ice in it (not properly made). Great looking restaurant, but food was not very good, especially for the price.

This is one of our favorite restaurants to go to! I've had sushi all over the country and this restaurant could be the best. We like Kooma in West Chester too, but the ambiance here is much better and quieter. I wish they had more specialty rolls here but the ones they have are amazing. There is one wrapped in cucumber that is especially delicious. Oh, and the hot and sour soup is the BEST I've ever had and you get a huge bowl of it!!

Le love coming to teikoku. Weve had two other great experience and just figured it would always be that way. The service blend and generally nonexistent, my dish was cold and just so so (pabang beef). We get the sweet basil rice To share and it was nearly inedible. Her scallopps we're overcooed and tough/chewy. The desert finishedup the night as being hugely disapointing.

We've had several great meals at Teikoku, but the service this time was lacking. We waited 20 minutes for our drinks. 30 minutes later two (of our party of six) received their appetizers (salad), it was another 60 minutes before our sushi appetizers came out. 3 sushi apps were brought over, then 3 entrees, then the rest of the sushi and entrees came out. Our apps and entrees came out together. Refills on drinks took 20 minutes. Some people got frequent water refills (when glass wasn't even half empty) while others in the party never got a refill despite having an empty glass. We were not offered to have anything taken off our bill, and only received a "sorry, the sushi bar is slow" (people who came after us got their sushi before us.

This restaurant had a very interesting selection of food and it was very good. The bartender was very attentive and helpful. Our waitress was not very good. Requests we made were forgotten by the waitress. It was also very loud. We will go back again to see if we caught it on an off night but it will not be our first choice.

This is a restaurant we just love. Had the tuna with mashed yams. Yummy! Husband had the Godzilla roll which he found a bit mushy which has never been the case. The pork dumplings, peking duck and coconut based soup are excellent. I think the bar area and main dining room are beautiful but I prefer the quiet of another room they have off of the left side of the restaurant. All staff members are there to make sure you have a great dining experience. Been to happy hour a couple of times and its a good value.

Request a table away from the bar if you want a quieter dining experience. There was an obnoxiously loud woman at the bar that made it hard to hear at our table. We've gone other times and sat in the rooms away from the bar and it was fine.

My boyfriend and I went here on a Friday night. It was packed. Service was a little slow but our waitress was very accommodating and quick to our attention. The food was ok...great for suburb area, I think. We had the salmon tartar, which was very good and tasty. I would recommend it for starters. We had 3 specialty rolls and some a la carte. Pretty good and fresh, but not "off the chart" good. I've had better, especially a usual sushi eater like me become very picky with fish selection. We had warm saki for drinks...$5/carafe, which is very cheap. Pricing is fair overall. Since the restaurant was packed, it was very noisy. This place seems to be good for groups but not romantic. I would recommend this place for food and service.

We hadn't been to Teikoku in quite while, but decided it would be fun to celebrate my wife's birthday there. What a disappointment! Perhaps it had to do with the late hour (8:45) but her meal was inedible. The crispy duck was hard and dry as a rock and the vegetables it was served with were tough and difficult to chew. My rib eye was OK. Definitely not how we remember what used to be a favorite of ours.
