Sushi Tei (which originated from Singapore) is yet another popular sushi chain restaurant in Malaysia (with outlets in Klang Valley, Penang and Kota Kinabalu) serving "a good deal of sushi" (+ an array of other delicious Japanese cuisine).
In the mood for some Japanese food (and a light meal), we ended up at Sushi Tei @ Pavilion one Saturday evening.
We started with the Special Unagi Roll @ RM17.80 (for small) which had 4 pcs of omelette and cucumber sushi roll topped with unagi (eel) with a drizzle of mayo and sweet sauce.
Let me scrape away the (abundant) mentaiko so that you can see (some) of the salmon underneath!
Finally, a main course without mentaiko, the Ten Don (Regular) @ RM14.80 which comprised of assorted tempura on rice. This dish came with 2 tempura prawns and tempura vegetables of eggplant, carrot and green bell pepper.
Crispy, crunchy tempura is always a mainstay favourite at any Japanese restaurants. As I weren't very hungry that night, I was not able to sample more dishes...ah, well...I could always come back ;)
Our drinks were a glass of filtered water @ RM1 and something called Sunrise @ RM7.50 (can't remember the fruit juice combo of this, though I remembered the taste of orange in it).
My Personal Opinion
Sushi Tei is yet another good place to have sushi. Although Sushi Tei is also a "kaiten" sushi, there weren't that many sushi plates moving on the conveyor belt though. So, my orders of sushi came freshly made and piping hot...and that was a plus for me! The other thing that I really liked is that they were really generous with the cod roe here (though it can be a tad salty for some taste buds because of the abundance of it).
Their prices may be a tad higher than Sushi Zanmai (which seems to be the more popular one currently, probably because of its affordability) but the dishes are served hot at Sushi Tei...and that should endear them to some patrons.
For me, most of the big brands "kaiten" sushi out there (like Sakae Sushi and Sushi Zanmai) are decent enough (for the prices we pay)...it just depends on which is your favourite (as long as it's not the mediocre Sushi King for me)! Personally, it's Sushi Tei vs Sushi Zanmai anytime but my son seems to like Sakae Sushi (for some 'unexplainable' reason). I guess it's 'to each his own' as we all seem to have our perennial favourites!!
It's a marvellous month...for celebration!
