When we talk about Sushi Tei, my friends and I would always like to joke about how we always order our standard food items everytime without fail. Not because we don't like trying new things or we dont like the other stuff at Sushi Tei but its just that some things are just too good that even after eating it time and again we still do crave it. It all started when we started working and every time we could contemplate on what to treat ourselves with after work, as we are always craving for good food and due to convenience purposes, we always end up at Sushi Tei.

The fresh sashimi at Sushi Tei is always a must have that is for sure because despite the many restaurants that I have been to it still serves one of the best quality sashimis at a reasonable price. There are also many selections of food in the menu, from the various kinds of bento sets, to the different collections of sushi, and even the "hotpot" selection. A personal favourite would be the chawamushi which is the soft steamed japanese egg. It is tasty, enough and not too much and always good as a side dish or appetizer.

The price at Sushi Tei is reasonable for the quality food that it is serving. Although it is not the best around but it is one of the better ones to go for for just a meal and still be able to step out feeling all very satisfied. There are also buffet options for the big-eaters, who would definitely eat their fill and money's worth given the spread.

unique sashimi salad with sushi tei sauce
Overall Score 
 
3.5
Sushi Tei serves a wide range of Japanese dishes that are generally fresh.

At Sushi Tei, I like the sashimi salad with sushi tei sauce. The sashimi includes pieces of tuna, salmon, octopus and several other fish sashimi. The fish slices and vegetables are fresh, and thus it is juicy and delicious when eaten on its own. The sushi tei sauce is slightly sour, replacing lemon that is usually dripped over fresh sashimi. Altogether, the sashimi, vegetables and sauce complement each other well and each mouthful has a burst of different flavours. With the cold salad, a hot green tea is nice to warm up the stomach. Another dish that I like will be the chawanmushi. Although it contains average ingredients, the egg is soft and the ingredients used are fresh.

The service at Suishi Tei is below average, perhaps due to the lack of service staff as they are constantly busy especially during the peak periods, and they would take some time before coming to the table. It is advisable to make reservations before turning up at an outlet, as there can be a long queue at times.

Sushi tei is one of my favourite places to go to to enjoy authentic tasting Japanese cuisine even though most of the cooks there are not Japanese. I frequent the outlets at east coast park and raffles city and I have to say that I love the ambience there. The dull brown décor and dimmed lights just makes the entire dining experience so much more tranquil and even slightly romantic. The sushi served there are really fresh. I prefer to order the sushi rather than grab them off the conveyor belt as it would be fresher. I would ALWAYS order the beef kaminabe with miso soup base.

Filled with a generous amount of golden mushrooms, toufu and cabbage, I just realized that I could ask for a refill for the miso soup too! Beef slices are cut to the right thickness too and are really tender. I usualy go for their dons. Chicken katsu don is awesome! They are always generous in their toppings such as onions and sauce. For dessert, I love the pinos, which is a plate of 6 little chocolate balls with ice cream in it. If that’s too little for you, the ice cream waffle is awesome too! Will always prefer sushi tei to sakae sushi!

Sushi Tei is my favourite Japanese dining with my friends. The food quality is constantly good and fresh, the wide variety of sushi, sashimi and cooked food are good for sharing during friends gathering. After trying almost everything on Sushi Tei menu, some dishes don't suit my tastebuds as I'm not used to sweet and sour sushi like mango roll or fruits roll. 

My frequent orders are Zaru Soba, sashimi set, some sushi and warm food. You can ask for minced radish for the Zaru Soba as it goes very well with the soba sauce. Sashimi set is good for sharing and it is filling too. Salmon belly is more tender than the normal salmon, Mekajiki (sword fish) is chewy and has a tint of butter taste, Maguro (tuna) is moist and has a tint of sour taste, Tako (octopus) is very chewy and tough, and Hamachi (yellowtail) is tender. Tai (seabream) is quite dry but a popular choice as it has less fats and people find it as a healthier choice. 

Mentai (baked mayonaise) Scallop is tender but quite greasy. Nabe (paper pot) soup is salty but the ingredients are fresh. The saltiness from the soup brings out the flavour of the seafood. I don't mind spending high calories at Sushi Tei since the food taste so good.

Sushi Tei evokes fond memories from my JC days. I love the Japanese styled decoration in the restaurant. It has a very traditional vibe to it, making it a very pleasant place to dine in. I especially love the semi-private 'rooms' with partitions on the 2nd level in the Serangoon Garden branch. Not only is it ideal for a cozy gathering, it also allows us a little privacy away from the crowd.

The sushis served at Sushi Tei are superbly fresh and delectable. Not only that, they are all of a generous portion. It would be good to visit as a group as it would be impossible to savour the wide variety of sushis they have to offer unless you share them with friends. My favourite sushi dish from Sushi Tei is the Phoenix Roll - sushi topped with unagi and avocado. There was also another dish we tried of which I forgot the name, but it had mango on it and surprisingly, the mango and sushi went delightfully well together! For those who are keen on more fulling meals, Sushi Tei offers a wide array of ramen and bentos as well.

Sushi Tei is a popular and known restaurant in Singapore, and despite its numerous branches, it is often full-house on weeknights and public holidays, so it would definitely be wise to call and make reservations prior to going.

Also, prices can run pretty steep, but it is a great value for money in my opinion. If you are craving for quality sushi, Sushi Tei will be sure to satisfy you like a king.

If I were questioned about my favourite Japanese restaurant (mainstream, of course), I would say Sushi Tei in a heartbeat. Price of Sushi Tei is slightly more expensive than the other Japanese chain restaurants in Singapore, but a few more dollars for quality food will always be worth it.

Sashimi that Sushi Tei offers is undoubtedly fresh, and serving is rather generous. I would wolf down a couple plates of salmon sushi before I start on my favourite dish — the Udon (Niku, Tempura, plain, whatever!). Don’t be deceived by the unimpressive clear broth of the dish, the soup is extremely palatable and sweet. The soup of Niku Udon tends to be oilier, so order the plain one to indulge in.

Friends have nothing negative to say about their beef hotpots. I’ve tried it personally but I still prefer my bowl of udon. The ramen, however, is mediocre but as I’m a fan of udon through and through, this doesn’t bother me the slightest bit.

Queues at Sushi Tei get ridiculously long at dinnertime, especially the town outlets. Even the Holland Village outlet is packed at dinnertime. This is expected so it would be good to have late lunch or early dinner to avoid waiting.
