This is a remarkably good sushi restaurant by any standard – I'm a 50 year old Chicago businessman who's eaten sushi from Osaka to Tokyo to New York to San Francisco to L.A. to Miami and hundreds of towns across America. Tenshi is FIRST RATE. They didn't have everything (like Toro or Uni) on my visit, but what they had was GOOD. And today, most customers care about the maki rolls - how can somebody mix fish, spices and rice into a unique set of flavors that is both good and very attractive to the eyes. I sat at the bar for more than 2 hours and was impressed again and again by the artful rolls put together to please customers. And the pricing - is REMARKABLY CHEAP. From the saki to the fish, I was impressed at what I got and the extremely attractive pricing. By the typical standards in America, they are selling #1 food at half the normal price. I'm just a traveling businessman, so there's nothing in it for me to give a review that's "over the top" - except that this restaurant was. Everything, from edamame to ebi with fried fish heads to rolls was absolutely first rate and about half what I would have expected to pay. This restaurant is a remarkable gem in the Houston outskirts that deserves a lot more customers than showed up on 1/21/09 when I was there. Five stars all the way.
Best Sushi in our area! – A small, intimate sushi restaurant that is PERFECT. Husband and I love this place. Great, fresh food, wonderful service and fantastic sushi rolls.
Best Sushi anywhere, great service, family friendly – Tenshi is simply the best!
How do you say "We love this place" in 5 different languages!? :)
First loved it for the sushi- the freshest, most tender fish, the best rolls we've ever had (and we've had a lot of sushi, worldwide!).
They also have the best homemade ginger dressing, yummy soups, cooked-just-right edemame, just everything.
Second loved it for the people.
The owners Nina & Mike are amazing people. We love our waitress Irene.
When I need to sneak a break, Tenshi is where I go.
The private room is perfect when our whole family is there, which is about once a week....yep it's that good!
Best sushi in town – I've gone to many recommended sushi places but the only place I keep going to is Tenshi. Tenshi have such wonderful employees and best managers. Mike & Nina seems to remember everyone and welcomes everyone like they've known you forever. The sushi just melts in your mouth, it's so good. I've had sushi at other places that seems to stick to your mouth, but not a Tenshi, & I try different ones every time I go there. Place is small, intimate, clean, & always has a warm feeling to it.
Casual, family-friendly Japanese restaurant in the Cypress area known for its varied and accessible sushi rolls. – In Short
Inside this intimate Northwest Houston sushi restaurant, area locals opt for a seat at the sushi bar (within eyeshot of the TVs) or cozy dining room. The menu includes dependable dishes such as teriyaki, tempura, Asian salads, udon soups, noodle dishes and rice bowls. The sushi and sashimi menu includes approximately 50 different rolls, with daily chef specials and "invent your own roll" options. Lunch features popular bento boxes, and free Wi-Fi is available.
just not so sushi – Just wouldn't recommend this place for sushi. The people are friendly, but don't really make you feel welcome like other places. The setting is not so bad even though slightly small. What I would not recommend is the actual sushi itself. The sushi there is not fresh, flavorless and if it is flavored it's a bad one. The thing that bother me the most is the smell of the place....for some reason the place definitely have a strong yucky smell. Overall I came in there and came out thinking to myself...I am not going to eat sushi for awhile. first time I felt like I could not finish all of the sushi I had ordered.
great place to get sushi – I go there now and then and everything been great. Adriana is a great waitress and Mike and Nina are very friendly Chef.
