Chef and owner, Teiichi Sakurai, was born in Tokyo and learned the art of sushi in high school. He later moved to Texas, where he opened his first restaurant, Teppo, in 1995 and his second restaurant, Tei Tei Robata Bar, in 1998. He brought uncooked fish and Japanese grilling to Dallas! Both restaurants still exist today and are incredible, but Sakurai no longer owns them.
