Food was great service not so much. Our first waiter was terrific, however half way through our meal he disappeared, our food came very slowly and some not at all, our table was not cleared, our water and drinks were not refreshed and we spent a great deal of time just sitting waiting for our server to return, but he didn't. Eventually a new wait person appeared and asked if we needed anything? When we asked what happened she said I've replaced your waiter he was sent to another section. No apology for having left our table unattended or our lack of food and service. When the bill came I asked to speak to the manager who, did come over and when we explained the issue, she offered a half hearted "I'm sorry" with a tone that implied "Are you done complaining", and walked away. Too many great sushi restaurants in the area to go back here again...bye bye Teru Sushi!!!

Reliable sushi that is served in surprisingly large portions (a special roll has 8 large pieces). The outdoor patio with the lovely garden is definitely a highlight.

Teru sushi is a valley institution. I have been going there for 20 years. The sushi is great and the price can't be beat. Dinner for two with drinks came to $84. It would be twice that across the street at Anasebo. Service is only average. I had to ask three times for the edamame. Be sure to make a reservation if you are going on a weekend. It fills up.

Many Sushi restaurants to choose from and this one lacked sufficient ingredients in the rolls. Specifically the Philadelphia roll was short on salmon and contained an overabundance of rice. It was some what difficult to get the waiters attention for additional orders and to request the check.

We hadn't been to Teru Sushi in years. The food was amazing, and the prices were very reasonable. The service was good when we first were seated, but as it got more crowded, our server seemed to disappear, and we couldn't get our last roll and check. It was frustrating because we had a show to get to. I still would go back.

The food and service were good. The table next to us was a little out of control which made conversation at our table a little difficult. Not the resturaunts fault but still made for a less then excellent experience.

Always a great experience at Teru Sushi from the moment you walk in you are greeting by friendly staff to the service from the waiter and the rest of the staff. Food is wonderful and super fresh so many favorites to mention Baked Hamachi Brussel sprouts are so tasty. Crab and cucumber Sashimi has been one of my favorites for over a decade. Try the sushi bar its always a great experience. 5+ stars if I could give it!

Even with a reservation we still waited 25 minutes and our waiter took another 10 minutes getting to our table and then we couldn’t find him the rest of the night and ended up having to flag down other servers

Sushi here is really good and fresh. The restaurant doesn't smell fishy either. The tables are really close together, so you can pretty much hear other diners' conversations, and it gets a little loud. I will definitely eat here again.

Good was great, a bit overpriced. Service was pretty good, took a while just to get water let alone food. Ambiance was nice, but reeeeeeally loud. My only real complaint was, they don't take reservations. They claim they do, but when we went to the front desk to check in they said they couldn't find it I double checked my OpenTable account and it was there. They then said that for some reason they were not getting any opentable reservations. So we had to sit and wait almost 30 minutes after our reservation time before we were seated . Honestly I don't think we'll be going back.

I hadn't been to Teru in many years. I used to consider it a moderately decent sushi restaurant. Either my standards have gone up or theirs have gone down - perhaps both. I went alone, got seated, was totally ignored for over half an hour until I flagged down a waiter. I'd give the sushi a C minus and the service an F. The staff seemed quite unhappy and there was no excuse for the slow service - there weren't many customers. I hope they up their game.
