This is a delightful Japanese restaurant which has typical decor and atmosphere for a Japanese place in the U.S. The food while dining in, has been wonderful every time, including last night. Their sushi and sashimi is the best I've found in St. Louis because it's really fresh and the portions are on the generous side for each slice of... More

I have dined in here many times and all of my dining in experiences have been superb, really good sushi no matter which one I ordered. And I am really picky about sushi, so I would say without hesitation, that for those reluctant to eat sushi out of concern that it may not be fresh enough not being on a... More

It had sadly been too long since we enjoyed the great food at Nippon Tei. This week my wife and I joined some co-workers for dinner and had a great time with great food. We enjoyed: - Edamame - Miso soup - Incredibly good Goyza / dumplings; served with a tip from the waitress on how to get the dumplings... More

I met with some friends for an early Sunday dinner here. There were 11 of us in all, so we all got to share and taste several different dishes. All of the sushi I tasted was amazing. I think my favorite was the simple, yet elegant, White Tuna Nigiri. It melted in my mouth. The octopus salad, miso soup and... More

I had a carry out order, which was my 1st time here. I ordered the Pad Thai Chicken, which is delicious!! Was packaged nicely, with small containers of crushed red pepper, and another of chopped peanuts for my dish. Loaded with white chicken! It came with a small salad & cup of soup. The edamame was also very good! Wonderful... More

Quiet, clean, and delicious food. Sushi special is perfect. They have teriyaki chicken and salmon for those who aren't sushi fans. Have been coming here for years and have never been disappointed!

Good food and a nice quiet table makes for an excellent business lunch. My associate enjoyed the shrimp pad thai. I had the breaded pork cutlet. Sauces and salads and soups were all excellent.

Nippon Tei doesn't look like much from the outside, it is in a strip mall. Definitely go inside for really good sushi. We liked it better when they had the bar next door. That was our favorite place to eat, but the dining room works. Order the red dragon sushi. It is delicious.

My friends and I ordered 2 riceless rolls and 4 regular rolls. They were all amazing and huge! The service was good...it just took a little extra time to make those awesome sushi rolls. It was a little more pricey than we are accustomed to but it was worth it. I can't speak for my friends but I would most... More
