Sushi Tei is a traditional Japanese restaurant located in Albany, NY. We feature fresh, healthy Japanese food (eat in or take-out). Wine, sake and various imported beers are also available for your refreshment. Sushi is a small piece of raw fish or shellfish on a bed of vinegared rice. This can be eaten as is, or is often dipped into soy sauce and then eaten. Sushi is based on the belief that nature cannot be improved, and is usually very simple. Therefore, great care is put into the creation, arrangement and the many methods of preparing the food. The finished appearance is also very important because the natural beauty and taste must not be lost, but enhanced!
"Any sushi restaurant is only as good as the quality of its fish, and Sushi Tei represents well on that front." -- All over Albany
"This is hands down the best sushi place in Albany and I'm pretty sure I've tried them all and never been disappointed. I think I read about it originally in the times union? It's really a hidden treasure in the back of a random shopping center on a sparsely lit stretch of route 20 in westmere. Sorry guilderland, you can't keep this one to yourself!"
"Best sushi in the area. This is a somewhat small place so when they get busy it can take a little while to get the food. But it is worth the wait. This is some of the best sushi you can have in the capital region!"
“In LOVE! I have been here about 20+ times and every time I walk out satisfied with a smile on my face. The servers are so nice, they to make you meal perfect. Love the sushi chefs. So happy to have this so close to home. "
