We are too excited of it before we go, therefore after we got the first bite, we felt disappointed.

I think the main reason is The quality of rice is not up to standard.

The price is not cheap,but is acceptable. The serving time is around 15-20 minutes.

But their services are good, the waitresses are ready all the time.

I can see that many locals there, guess this is consider good sushi among the others in Bandung,

Delicious sushi for a cheap price compared to Europe. Very friendly staff.
The portions are small, so you can taste different things.
We spend around 30€ for row persons including drinks.
Tip: try the tuna sashimi, best I ever had!

Originally from Singapore, Sushi Tei is probably THE definitive sushi franchise in Indonesia, especially in big cities such as Jakarta and Bandung. There are other smaller restaurants and franchises, yet Sushi Tei is still the sushi restaurant most people know.

First of all, you can choose between the usual seating like in other restaurants or you can sit by the sushi bar -- in which the chefs put sushi on a conveyor belt and you can take the sushi you like. It's a nice experience to have, but only sushi and perhaps desserts are available on the bar.

They offer a lot of variation on the menu. Not only the eponymous sushi, but also other Japanese food. Just from their website, their food are categorized as such: appetizers, salads, sashimi, sashimi moriawase, temaki, makimono, donmono, yakimono, agemono, tempura, wanono, house specialties, sushi moriawase, nigiri sushi, gunkan, nabemono, and noodles! (it seems like they forgot to list their beverages and desserts!)

For the sushi, they offer both 'traditional' Japanese sushi (simple, bite-sized sushi with only rice and raw fish slice) and fusion sushi (elaborate rolled sushi with various fillings that may even incorporate ingredients such as avocado or cheese).
Then the other items on the menu you can choose include fried snacks, rice meals, sashimi (raw fish slices), pot/boiled food, noodles/ramen, and more. You can have a Japanese culinary tour just by visiting this restaurant and ordering the food!

The food are made with certifiably fresh and top quality ingredients (they have to maintain their image after all!). From my limited experience, their sushi are not only delicious but also unique. Very different from small sushi places.

The value is, well, worth it. They are a bit of a luxury for most Indonesians, but their prices are actually really fair compared to their food.

The place is elegant and certainly memorable. The architect and interior designer did a good job. You'll feel comfortable.

Their staff are actually pretty good with satisfactory service, however, the restaurant can get really busy even with their ample amount of seats and waiters, so it's pretty much unavoidable that the service might go down a bit, but still decent.

Conclusion: Sushi Tei is a relatively high-end restaurant that offers a variety of fresh and delicious Japanese food. If you're a sushi or Japanese food lover, you should definitely try Sushi Tei at least once -- and it'll be very tempting to go back again and again!
