If $10 for lunch and a LOT of sesame oil doesn't bother you, this place is probably fine. They do a brisk business, have kind of a cute decor, friendly service and have a wide variety of menu items. I had a poke bowl that would have been decent except for the heavy amount of sesame oil on the fish... More

My Cali cousins, Maylene & Steve took Val & I to Teri Cafe last night for dinner. I had an order of shrimp fried rice and some fried shrimp I added and loved it. Everyone was very happy with their choice. The only complaint was because the place was so crowded we had to wait for a table after giving... More

Honestly, I eat here at least once a week. Nothing fancy but everything they do, the do well. Teriyaki and Ramen are always good but they also have a terrific Ahi Poke Bowl, Yakisoba and a variety of sushi selection. Reasonably priced and prompt service makes Teri Cafe hard to beat.

Teri Cafe is the place to go to when you want Japanese food. People are always friendly and the food is always good.

Can't beat Teri Cafe. Great Japanese food, restaurant quality with a takeout value and atmosphere. We have been going to Teri since it was a small shop next to Target.

I've been going to this restaurant since it was a small little establishment in the Target shopping area across the street. They are since expanded to a much larger establishment and is always busy. Their teriyaki dishes are very good and so are their ramen soups. My favorite is the Chashu Ramen with the pork so perfectly cooked and full... More

No atmosphere but good food at reasonable prices. Nice assortment and they have gluten free soy sauce. I like all the rice dishes and the bowls. They also have Sushi.

While travelling we hit upon this at the recommendation of the vendor at T-Mobile in Carlsbad. We were not disappointed. Decor is tropical (a bit cheesy, but it works). Variety of choices - a sort of fusion between Mexcian and tropical/Asian. We had Tempura Hand Roll, Spcy lbacore Hand Roll and Beef Yaki Soba with Raspberry tea and Root Beer.... More

The prices are very reasonable. Went for late lunch and ordered shoyu ramen. Portion was just right. Would like to go back and try the daily special. This place is highly recommended by locals. You order at counter then sit down and a server brings the food to your table. I was confused when entering the restaurant at the wrong... More
