Authenticity and freshness are the two things I look for at a Japanese restaurant and Teppay has both. It's definitely not the most glamorous Japanese restaurant in Houston but the food is amazing. Great selection of sashimi, fresh uni included, a vast menu of both cooked and raw rolls and one of my personal favorite, ramen! The chashu is cooked and charred to perfection and the broth is just right. Yummy!

So the ambience is very Japanese.... Service not so.... If you decide to order appetizers, expect to get them after your entré and before your desert.... Could be a Japanese custom but in don't know. Sushi was decent, but no refills on water and the tuna sashimi is like chewing on jerky. We won't be back.

You could not justify Teppay's average 3.5 star rating to me... I felt as though I'd been transported to Japan - a small nook of a restaurant, simply decorated with little maneki-neko and mini-sushi figurines at the sushi bar, a real Japanese staff that gently greets you with a "moshi moshi"... not like Miyako's abrasive "MOSHI MOSHI!!!!", and most notably, the incredibly well-done, authentic food. My experience was pure peace and comfort, and I couldn't have gotten a table-for-one at a better place. Per recommendation of my Teppay addicted friend, I ordered the clam miso soup, the 6 piece omakase, and 2 pieces of torched salmon belly sushi topped with lemon and sea salt... Yes, you just read right. Wipe the drool off your chin and keep reading. The clam miso (not on the lunch menu) came out in a bowl with a bowl shaped lid. Steam floated up upon the unveiling, and fresh clams filled the bowl, swimming in a beautiful miso broth. The bowl-lid was the perfect receptacle for my clam shells, and I made sure there wasn't one drop of soup left. Next came the torched salmon belly - which includes a little fire show if you sit at the sushi bar. The slightly charred taste on the outside, with the raw, cold, buttery inside, and that pop of citrus and salt make this one of my favorite sushi of all time. The omakase was an obvious mix of salmon, mackerel, yellow tail, red snapper (I think), flounder or trout, and amaebi (sweet shrimp). Each sushi was adorned with high quality seafood. The mackeral was unlike any I've tried - not that crazy, pickled mess you get at every other sushi joint. The amaebi, a perfect finale to my meal, was presented with two halves of a fried sweet shrimp head, making it much easier to eat than when fried whole. Don't pay attention to that 3.5 star nonsense. If you're here complaining about the price and the portion size, then maybe you should be going to Tokyo One or something. This is how Japanese food is supposed to be done, and definitely something to try at least once when your wallet isn't empty. If you find yourself next to a large Skecher's shoe store on Voss and Westheimer, know that you are actually moments away from Japan... or at least the most Japenese experience you will have here in the H.
