Excellent Sushi!!!!

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... read 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.

We moved to St. Louis from SoCal several years ago so we we're pretty spoiled with some high quality sushi options. It took us a bit before we tried Nippon Tei & we've been going back now for over ten years. Owner Brian & his crew work hard to create a warm and inviting atmosphere & even harder on the... More

The rolls were large and they supply a "cheat sheet" incase you are not sure what is in the roll. They will add or cook items if needed. For example add cream cheese to a califorina roll. Full bar, house mojito is great. They have lots of other choices if you don't like it raw.

In the Mood for Sushi? This is the place. Watch the sushi chefs as they prepare your fresh Nigri and sushi roll while you enjoy miso soup and a salad. Friendly people, fresh food, excellent quality...all for $10

We tried this place based on another review service, and we have been eating here ever since. This is our "regular" place. We have only had the sushi here, and it just makes your mouth happy! All fresh, always good, excellent service and awesome atmosphere.
