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.

This place has some of the best sushi I've had anywhere in St. louis. The best part is their GENEROUS-sized rolls, and the sauces! Beautiful presentation, fast and friendly service, now my mouth is watering thinking about their food. :) Favorite rolls- *Lobster Roll*- crispy, served in a martini glass *Manchester Roll*-baked scallop creation in a huge tin foil concoction...

My last visit there was for lunch. Lunch was reasonable and delicious. We normally have the sushi, but the sukiyaki is great and I love the scallops. Try the gyoshu.

This place doesnt look like anything from the outside but they have the best spicy tuna in the midwest. Also try the Dragon roll. Great and friendly staff make the visit well worth.

Our fab sushi place. It's always great along with the service. We usually have sushi and often share an entree. We love the sukiyaki and their tempura is perfect. I often opt for one of their fusion dishes such as the eggplant and scallops. Keep up the great work.
