We finally tried it!!
On this not-too-particularly-hungry early evening, we figured that we could probably withstand a bit of queuing 😛 The queue started from around the corner of the shop (it’s located at the end of the building) to almost the end of the building wall when we arrived, only about 30 minutes into dinner service. The shop was very socially responsible and put up the PSI level at the start of the queue to remind customers on the haze situation.
Some time into the queue, a waiter came out and asked for the number of persons in our party, and to take our orders. We couldn’t really remember how long we took to queue for seats. Maybe around 30-45 minutes, judging from the timestamp of our photos. 🙂
Katsu Curry set
Chirashi Don set
We wanted to try something different for dinner, but it was crowded everywhere! Finally, we found a Japanese restaurant that still had available seats, so off we went. We tried the Katsu Curry set, Chirashi Don set (x2) and the Bara Chirashi Don set (x2).
Each set came with miso soup, chawanmushi, salad and pickles. The sashimi slices were quite fresh and the rice was not overly sticky, but somehow, the food did not quite “wow” us. The curry was of mild spiciness, and the fried pork slices was so-so… Quite a disappointing meal 😦
The total bill for 5 adults came to THB 1783.16, inclusive of 7% VAT and 10% service charge.

So we were trying so hard to get seats at Teppei that we gave up. Then came G’s friend, JY, who happened to know a chef in a Japanese restaurant, and she had seats for Omakase dinner! She very generously offered to bring us along and we were so excited (even though it’s not Teppei, haha…)!
