This is my 2nd time to Sushi Tei within a week time. I must be crazy as the food there wasn’t exceptional. At first, we wanted to have YTF at Jalan Ipoh, but when we were there, the place was closed. Then I suggested to them to try out Sushi Tei since DC was around to see if his cousin’s taste was that good.

... the unagi sushi looked dry. Probably leftovers from the day before.

Firstly, the unagi that was jogging on the kaiten belt looked unappetizing. It looked dry and I guess it was probably leftovers from the day before. Even when I ordered for unagi, the staff just pick them off the kaiten belt for me rather than making a new set for me, unlike other sushi places. Even Sushi King made new plates for you as the staff don’t go hunting on the kaiten belt for leftovers for their customers. There’s a very good reason why we paid the 10% service charge. If they would just serve us what’s on the kaiten belt, why would we want to pay that 10% service charge while we could practically kiss the moving belt from where we were seated?

Next, while we had an order for a maki, despite not mentioning the name, DC just pointed to the waiter on the item based on the picture on the menu. The staff still managed to made mistakes on it. Ended up we made a complaint and asked for our unagi maki instead as we’ve got no idea what was the maki that was served. Though it has a nice prawn head and tail on each end of the maki.

Food wise, nothing exceptional. It’s pretty similar to Sushi Zanmai. Service, there are still a lot of rooms for improvements.
