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

I'm not a sushi fan, but people I have been with think it is very good at this restaurant. I like the tempura dishes, and they are excellent at Nippon Tei!

We don't make it here as often as I'd like. The reason is we don't live that close. I have had some good sushi and I have had some really heinous sushi (the kind you would have thought came from a gas station). But OMG!!!! If I had to recommend a certain roll, it would be the lobster roll... It... More

This place is one of our favorite places for sushi in West County. It probably ranks second to Oishi. They are also open on Sunday which is a bonus as most sushi places aren't.

I am a huge fish nut. I have had Salmon every day of my life for probably the past 5 years.. and never get tired of it. I love fish. I got the Chirashi bowl, just so I could get a sampling of all of their raw fish. I have to say they really do have excellent fish quality and... More

Can only say that there isn't better or fresher Sushi than that at Nippon. Very good service with an excellent variety. We are always pleased and will return many more times. The meals are large and plenty to share with a lot of people.
