Sushi Tei is an international Japanese restaurant chain, with about 37 outlets in the Asia Pacific region and it is still growing. With an origin from Singapore, many of Sushi Tei restaurants are found in South East Asia cities, like Kuala Lumpur, Jarkarta, Surabaya, Bali and of course Singapore. As an expanding international brand, it can be found as far south to the Australia continent with restaurants in Sydney, and branching out to the opposite direction, the northern hemisphere, it has also established outlets in China most cosmopolitan city, Shanghai.
To the delight of all KK Lites, in January 2011 Sushi Tei has decided to open an outlet at Kota Kinabalu most prestige address, the Suria Sabah which is located on the waterfront. The restaurant is situated on the ground floor towards the end of the Kinabalu Mall. Its interior is modern and unique, and the tables along the glass wall do have a view to die for.
With a tag line that reads “A Good Deal of Sushi”, Sushi Tei is inspired to bring the true Japanese dining experience to the masses. Its menu features many Japanese offerings and innovative dishes which illustrate the emerging influence of Asia on modern Japanese cuisine. Clients are going to be mouth-watering over these items like donmono, makimono wanmono, tempura, and sushi moriawase. A few variety of noodles are also on offer. Guests can choose from the green noodle to the normal yellow noodles. After a meal, one gets to savor a healthy dose of green tea washing down the gut.
Apart from good gastronomical experience, Sushi Tei believes in providing an alluring ambience to its customers. Getting every one in good and relaxing mood is just as important to Sushi Tei. Walk into Suria Sabah Sushi Tei, one will immediately feel the unique design of this restaurant, besides the constantly and almost unending welcome greetings from the waiters and waitress. The most attractive feature of this restaurant is the big glass walled kitchen in the centre, where one can watch the chefs preparing many of the delicious dishes. It is not uncommon to see huge flame of fire while the chef works on the wok. The papers decoration on the top part of the glass kitchen are also very interesting and appealing to the eyes.
The seats are arranged to circle around the glass kitchen. Those seats immediately next to the glass kitchen are serviced with a conveyor belt bringing a wide varieties of sushi to the clients. A private room at the back of the restaurant is also available. The side seats that attached right beside the glass wall are probably the most desired, as one would have a good view of the harbour and the Gaya island. At night the brown warm lights used by the establishment also give the place a special kind of feeling. Like every thing new in Kota Kinabalu, this place at the moment is filled to the brim especially for the dinner crowds.
