“A decent japanese place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

I like going to sushi tei once in a while when i crave for a quick japanese food. I usually have the sashimi, miso soup and edamame. Nice atmosphere, service and the price is decent..

“This is NOT Japanese Food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

The ratings of this place are proof that most Indonesian DO NOT have a clue of what is good Japanese food.

First of all, sushi and sashimi must be eaten as soon as it is cut and prepared. It is not meant to be on a conveyor belt that goes around and around the restaurant for hours until an unlucky customer picks it.

Second, ikura is supposed to be firm and fresh so that when you barely touch it with your teeth it explodes deliciously with aromatic flavors of the sea. It is not supposed to be chewy like little rubber balls and fishy stale on your tongue.

Third, look around and see the customers eating their sushi with Sambal ABC! See the customers mixing lethal amount of fake wasabi into their soy sauce. They have no idea that real shredded wasabi exists! Look at their smug faces as they order California rolls thinking that it's real Japanese food!

I could go on and on but why bother? Indonesians will still come to this place and the restaurant owners will think that there is nothing wrong. Hey, ignorance is bliss.

“Biggest sushi choice I've ever seen in my life...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014 via mobile

Excellent place to have dinner. Such a large menu with classical sushis and then japanese dishes more original that brings diversity.
Staff mainly speaking only local language so quite difficult to ask special things in english but very good experience! Recommend with no hesitation!

“Sashimiii sushiii”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

The queue on almost every lunch and dinner session describe the taste and the service of this restaurant.
Although the price is often rising but it doesn't make me to take this restaurant off my dining list.
My wife and I love sashimi and sushi and this is the right place to go.
