Why 'safest'? Well, Sushi Tei is like the most common sushi place in Jakarta. Craving for sushi but not sure where to go? Sushi Tei it is.
Sushi Tei serves authentic sushi and it actually pretty good and value for money. Like a lot of other sushi places, the sushi served in different kinds of plate color to indicate the price. They have various kinds of sushi, and it's always served fresh.
As usual, we ordered their Kani Salad (fresh garden salad served with crab meat on top) with Sushi Tei dressing. Fresh and refreshing as always! Then I also added Chawan Mushi to my appetizer list. Unlike usual, the Chawan Mushi tasted funny and smelt a little fishy it left a weird after-taste in my mouth, I decided not to finish it.
Moving on to the main course, I ordered Grilled Chicken Ramen. After several visit, I knew their noodle soup is pretty much so-so, but I've been craving for hot soup all day so I ordered it anyway. It surprisingly tasted great tonight! The seasoning is perfect unlike my previous order where it usually tasted a bit tasteless.
The Karage Curry was great too, but the pickles should be sweeter for curry. After the main course, I ordered Inari Sushi and Chuka Idako Gunkan. I was surprised that they cut down the portion waaay less than usual yet the price is still the same.
So after getting my tummy full, we ordered their new Peach Shorbet for dessert since our usual dessert which is Chocolate Waffer (more like ice cream sandwich with chocolate plate in the middle of the ice cream) was out of stock. The peach shorbet wasn't like what I expected. It was too sweet and fragrant where I thought it should be at least a little sour. But anyhow, the shorbet was very very soft it melted perfectly in my mouth.
So long story short, as for Sushi Tei, the food is great (although I get bad Chawan Mushi tonight, never happened before), the place is great, the price is worth the food and service, overall it's all good.
