I have been going to Tenshi since I move to Houston (2007-2008) from NY, and have always been very satisfied with the quality of food and service. Tonight's visit completely changed not only opinion of the food but the quality of character

Someone should go Gordon Ramsay on the owner of this place. Why would you have someone answering the phone to take orders if they do not know the first thing about the menu and severely inexperienced and lacking in customer service. My $17

My husband and I discovered this place about 5-6 years ago, and we go all of the time. \r

The decor is not as fancy as typical sushi places, but what they lack in ambiance, they more than make up for in quality of food and price.

I have gone here with co-workers and numerous birthdays. I always had a great experience. My favorite is the yo-daa roll and the crab puffs. One of the best places in North Houston! They also have a kareoke room, great for small gatherings!

My family and I love sushi and we are very particular about our sushi. This restaurant is "OUR PLACE" and for several reasons. The sushi really is the best quality in town!!!! REALLY!!! This is the first place we stop into when we come back from a vacation because the whole family misses the food!! And the staff is VERY FRIENDLY; they take the time to get to know you.

So many of our friends go here as well and they all share the same feeling, they say it is "THEIR PLACE."

Definitely a great restaurant with very good sushi! The service was a little slow, but once the sushi came out, it was worth the wait! The seaweed salad hit the spot; the Miso soup was excellent. We ordered the sushi & sashimi deluxe platter which had MORE than enough for two people to share. Our waitress was very helpful! We will definitely be back for more!

A coworker and I just went to Tenshi for lunch. When we arrived, there was one other table of people there (which is how it remained during our entire meal). The decor is what you would expect from a low-end restaurant, certainly not one with three $$$.
My friend ordered a bento box that also came with a soup. She liked the soup but not the box. I ordered sushi, which arrived by the time my friend was done with her lunch! Upon delivering my food, the waitress claimed that the kitchen made the wrong food, but no explanation for the slow service was made until that point. The waitress made no apology, and did not discount my meal at all. We won't be back!

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.

Pros: Remarkably good food in an unexpected location

Cons: Limited business means they can't stock all the fish they would like all week due to freshness issues

A small, intimate sushi restaurant that is PERFECT. Husband and I love this place. Great, fresh food, wonderful service and fantastic sushi rolls.

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!

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.

Pros: Service, atmosphere, food, etc

Cons: Not around the corner from where I live in Spring

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.
