I really enjoy Sushi Tei. The restaurant is clean, well-run, and the food is very fresh. I particularly like the Mistletoe Roll. Note that this restaurant is around the side of the strip mall building and at night the shades in the window may make...More

FYI, they have a special lunch menu, which currently is not advertised on their website. They even have some Bento Box lunch specials. I liked that they gave me a choice of a soup other than miso. Their clear soup was surprisingly very tasty. I...More

Sushi Tei is a traditional Japanese restaurant located in Albany, NY. We feature fresh, healthy Japanese food (dine-in or take-out). Wine, sake and various imported beers are also available for your refreshment. Sushi is a small piece of raw fish or shellfish on a bed of vinegared rice. This can be eaten as is, or is often dipped into soy sauce and then eaten. Sushi is based on the belief that nature cannot be improved, and is usually very simple. Therefore, great care is put into the creation, arrangement and the many methods of preparing the food. The finished appearance is also very important because the natural beauty and taste must not be lost, but enhanced!
