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.

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
