Good Japanese

We were disappointed that the adjoined lounge area had been replaced by a Ramen restaurant. Business was quite brisk in both restaurants. We had 3 couples in our group and tried a variety of dishes. Shrimp pad Thai was very good as was all the sushi. Another person did all the ordering so I... read more

There is a saying that one bad experience can ruin all the good ones. That is the situation here. Earlier this fall, after a number of very good dine-in experiences, we did a take-out order. The minute I opened it after arriving home I knew there was a problem. The Hamachi nigiri sushi in the box didn't look anything like... More

Nippon Tei is one of my favorite sushi restaurants in St. Louis. I've never met a roll I didn't like. It's great for any occasion or lack thereof. There's a connected bar/lounge off to the side.

My wife and I acquired a taste for quality sushi during the 15 years we lived in Southern California. Of all the sushi places we can find in greater St. Louis Nippon Tei is our favorite. The ambience is chic, modern and the place has a nice vibe. Brian and his staff know how to throw down the tastiest of... More

It is not very common for a place to have both the highest quality and very modest prices, but this place does combine those 2 traits and merits 5 stars. I am a sushi aficionado and am extremely picky about sushi and there is simply nothing to criticize here. Every sushi item I've had has been pristinely fresh and the... More

PHENOMENAL dragon roll! Everything else was good, as well, but the presentation of the dragon roll totally rocked. Tasted good, too.

We eat at Nippon Tei regularly. Normally it is an excellent choice. The food is fantastic, flavorful and fresh! The staff is friendly. We bring our children and they go out of their way to involve them and make them feel welcome. Every once in a while they have an off night where the experience is sub par. We will... More

This used to be one of my favorite restaurants in St. Louis. They have changed their sushi menu, and they were probably the worst rolls I've ever eaten. I've had better rolls from a grocery store. The lobster roll was inedible. It had mushy salmon on top with a weird mayo-far from the mouth-watering recipe it used to be. The... More
