My fiancée and I had four rolls between the two of us thinking about our previous sushi experiences and not wanting to be left hungry. We should not have been concerned. The sushi was fantastic and in good measure. I myself had the special roll-of-the-day and asked for a "surprise from the chef." Clearly he knows what he's doing. They... More

I am a novice to the sushi world. Stopped at this quaint little place in the strip mall as I have been told it is excellent quality. It was quiet, clean and friendly. The staff were accommodating. I thoroughly enjoyed my Hurricane Roll. My more experienced cousin enjoyed her roll as well.

Actually I went by accident coming back from the gym. The food is absolutely delicious, fresh and qualitative. The menu has a really large choice! The rolls are super refined and fresh. Service is top notch. I do recommend this place. It is worth going there, no doubt

Ate here for lunch for the first time. It's always a good sign in a Japanese/Sushi restaurant when there are several tables of people speaking Japanese during their meal. I had chirashi (raw fish slices over sushi rice with vegetable garnishes) with a nice assortment of fish and my wife had a bento box. Both very nicely prepared. Not sure... More

Good variety on the menu. Always fresh sushi. I wish the rolls were bigger but what that lack in size they make up for in taste. Never disappointed after eating here.

Great food. It's kind of hiding in a strip center but I'm so glad I found this place. The sweet potato roll was like a dessert.

The lunch menu was OK. Small rolls and the spicy crab, while flavorful, had almost no crab in it. The salmon and avocado roll was nice. Their bento boxes looked very nice.

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!
