Great tiny Japanese restaurant. Servers speak Japanese, surroundings emulate Japan - complete with framed paintings and paper sliding doors. It is not knock off sushi. Their rice is smaller, stickier and allows the ingredients to be more flavorful. For those with a salty palette, mentaiko is the saltiest roll on the menu. Spicy hamachi was delicious, and definitely try the... More

First, my truck was not a big fan of speed bumps in the parking lot. It took too long for the food to arrive but it was hot and tasted good. Service was good too.

Japanese owned and run for over 30 years, this gem has a neighborhood feel. But don't be mislead into thinking this is just another average Japanese place. It is, quite simply, the best and most authentically traditional Japanese restaurant in Houston. World class sashimi, sushi and a wide range of simple, perfectly executed traditional Japanese cooked dishes that are not... More

This is an excellent suchi restaurant in a nice location. The owner is a fine Japanese chef and anything you order is a good idea. We enjoyed our dinner here tremendously.

The nigiri sushi are very nice and fresh. Also, their chirashi has a very beautiful presentation. Service is sometimes slow but the food is good. Also, if you have time for weekday lunch, go for their bento.

Great food, good service. But check your bill if you can understand Japanese, I caught them over charged me twice. Not going back again.

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
