Teikoku Restaurant Review

: The quiet rush of a falling water wall and the shine of natural river rocks mark the entrance to Teikoku, where owners Win and Sutida Somboonsong (Thai Peppers, Mikado) have created a showcase for their native Thai cuisine as well as traditional Japanese food and sushi. Have a drink in the lively bar, which offers handcrafted cocktails along with an array of high-end sakés. Appetizer standouts include steamed lobster dumplings, and chicken spring rolls with pineapple salsa and plum sauce. Sushi is first-rate, from rich buttery toro to the house special maki roll, a contrast of barbecued eel, crunchy cucumber and brilliant green, creamy avocado. Thai curries, grilled teriyakis and crispy duck breast are a few of the entrée options. Desserts are a mixture of East and West; we suggest the coconut macadamia tart with white chocolate raspberry gelato and the tropical sorbets.
