    To best understand the full measure of Sakurai’s mastery, call ahead and request the seven-course omakase that often includes A5 wagyu beef and ultra-seasonal fish. Read more

    "I like to have a bowl of their ramen for lunch—it's a life changer! Pork belly and tonkotsu broth are the type of soulful cooking that I adore." Chef Brian Zenner Read more

    Delicious! We had the Tei tasting menu. ($50pp) Chef sent out 6 courses. Seaweed salad, tempura veggies, wagyu beef w/hot stones, CA & spicy tuna rolls (pressed), dumplings, green tea noodles. Yum

    The best Japanese in Dallas hands down. From the owners of Tei Tei, this new venue is not so much about the fish - Tei An is a traditional soba house offering a mountain of hot and cold soba combos

    Slurp away at this Arts District noodle shop. This restaurant offers humble handmade soba with dips like Texas pecan a pedestal and provide customers with unexpected libations like Japanese vodka.

    A five-star, very traditional Japanese restaurant. Main course consists of soba noodles. Limited sashimi and sushi, along with pressed sushi (like rolls without seaweed). Menu not updated online.

    Amazing food and service!! Highly recommend the white seaweed salad (you will not regret it), curry udon with duck meatballs and shiitake mushroom, ramen, and the soba with honey!!

    For simplicity sake, just order the Omakasye menu preferably the "An" version - be sure to tell them what you don't like or allergic to and how many times you have ate there.

    Chef Teiichi Sakurai's One Arts Plaza hotspot Tei-An is unanimously the city's best Japanese restaurant, which means that it makes a damn fine bowl of ramen.

    Try the ramen. It's umami heaven as long as you add a poached egg. Oh, and it'll run you about as much as a cocktail. 👍 Those are also great.

    I wanted to like this place but I was not impressed. The ramen wasn't amazing but it didn't suck either. I just can't get over the unbelievably tiny portions! I will not be returning.

    I'm not sure what the men's room looks like, but if you're a lady, you might as well hold it. The stall doors have huge windows — no, they're not fogged.

    Ridiculous. $14 for about 5 pieces of tempura? I'm still hungry & now I have to go get something cheap & horrible for me. Bleh. I will never come here again. Also, the service is slow. Double Bleh.
