Good but pricey

This is an authentic Japanese sushi bar with highly skilled Japanese sushi chefs. Only minus on this is of course price. Be prepared to spend $30-$40 per person at least when you visit.

Visited Teppay Japanese Restaurant for the first time today. All we had was the Wafu Ramen, a soy based broth ramen and it was very good. I will be going back to try the sushi when I get the chance. Small place but good flavors.

Just arrived in Houston and wanted some light. The outside is not that attracting and near by shop pretty empty. It was rather an accident I found them. It was 7pm and only one table taken but by the time I finished the restaurant as full. 3 cooker behind the counter preparing sushi, friendly staff and food excellent. I wish... More

Wow, my experience here was quite different the two times I went. The first time was dinner, during the week, with a friend from Japan. The owner was there. We received terrific service and he made great suggestions for what to order from the Japanese language menu. When they arrived he explained what they were and how they were prepared.... More

We eat a lot of sushi, of both the traditional and fusion type, and we appreciate both. Perhaps our expectations were too high because of the reviews, but we were disappointed with the food. Pros: 1) fish was of reasonable quality and sliced relatively thick. 2) the party room in the back ($20charge) was well worth it! Fits perhaps up... More

We have lived in Houston for over 25 years during which the number of Japanese restaurants mushroomed, particularly over the last 5 years. I have sampled most if not all 'worthy' Japanese restaurants in Houston, but Teppay remains by far the very best. As I indicated in my other reviews, I am a Japanese living in US but visit Japan...

We visited Teppay Japanese Restaurant on a Friday night, and we had booked ahead. Sitting inside I felt like I was in Japan, the atmosphere is great and there were a lot of Japanese people eating there, which is always a good sign that the restaurant is authentic. I had some green tea which was delicious, then myself and my... More

Mamsan greets you at the door, Papsan works behind the sushi counter with his daughter. I've been coming here for over 15 years. The fish is unquestionably fresh, try the fresh mackerel it's out of this world.

OK, we have been to the so-called #1 top 'fusion' in-spots... they are fun, but they are not authentic. We travel to the Pac Rim lots, so I know sushi... Teppay is just like walking into a little spot in GInza... or near the Toyko fishmarket... wonderful and real! We have enjoyed their food for more than 20 years, and... More

A great find. Maybe the best sushi I have had. Trust the chef. Make sure you try the ramen soup after.
