Have been to Sushi Tei on a few occasions, and I would always order their ramen. Their beef ramen is really nice. The beef is tender and easy to chew on, and the ramen base is tasty! Probably my favourite dish there.

I have also tried their chicken katsu ramen, which is also pretty nice, but I'd still settle for the beef ramen instead, because I think it tastes nicer together. The chicken katsu is served separately, because it wouldn't taste nice if soaked into the soup, thus it is more like I am eating two separate things. Have also tried the chicken katsu don. Not bad, but have tried better (and cheaper), so nothing worth praising.

Not a fan of sushi or sashimi, so I've never tried any here. I have a friend who loves their salmon sashimi though!

I always notice that the queues at nex and Vivo City can be really long, but I've always eaten at the outlets at Orchard (Paragon and Takashimaya), which have no queue. In fact, the outlet at Paragon was almost empty when I visited. Perhaps it was because it was off peak hours? But I guess the queues speak for themselves: Sushi Tei is no doubt a good choice for a casual Japanese meal!

Out of all the sushi restaurants in Singapore, Sushi Tei is my family's favourite, and for good reason. At our favourite outlet in Paragon, the restaurant is spacious, with large tables and cushy seats perfect for a family lunch. Even though the lighting is slightly dim, it sets the atmosphere for an enjoyable meal.

My personal favourite is the kaki mentai sushi - fried oyster wrapped in rice and topped with delicious mentaiko sauce. This was the very sushi which sparked off my love affair for mentaiko, otherwise known as spicy cod roe; during every single visit, it is the first thing I'd order from the menu. Apart from sushi, Sushi Tei also offers your typical Japanese dishes, such as udon and rice, all of which are well-made.

I'd highly recommend this restaurant to everyone, from cozy dates to family lunches.

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.

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.

Order the Sashimi Salad with Sushi Tei sauce. Do it.

Sushi Tei is one of those restaurants that serve Japanese cuisine at near-complete authencity, and since young has always been a place associated with treats in my mind.

A must-order is their Sashimi Salad which comes with plump cubes of fresh raw fish. Choose the Sushi Tei sauce and you’ll be presented with a refreshing and tart salad that makes for a perfect appetiser. The Salmon Oyako Spicy Roll is another dish that will please your palate. With plump sushi rice that wraps crispy salmon skin, topped with aburi salmon, every bite promises a texturally engaging experience.

There was once I tried the Tan Tan Don, and I was not impressed. It tasted like normal rice topped with minced meat that you can probably get at a fraction of the price from a hawker centre. Nonetheless, there are many other dishes that make it worth a trip!

In my opinion, Sushi Tei is just the average Japanese buffet restaurant. I don't really fancy their food and find their sushi a little over-priced. There's not much variety to begin with as well.

A few times when I patronized, I received really bad service, in terms of an extremely long waiting time (it wasn't really crowded that time), semi-cold food and a few wrong orders.

It took them awhile to rectify the problem too. Since then, unless my friends have a serious craving for only Sushi Tei would I comply and dine there. Otherwise, I'd recommend Japanese restaurants that can easily win them hands down.
