While many restaurants have come and gone at One Arts Plaza, Tei-An has remained a constant, turning out progressive Japanese cuisine in what has become one of Dallas' finest and most popular restaurants. Folks looking for everything from a casual lunch to a multi-course omakase will find what they're looking for in this smartly appointed, minimalist dining room. Soba takes center stage. Unlike most restaurants, Tei-An makes the noodles fresh and serves them with garnishes and sauces that change with the seasons. The ramen is the most fawned-over bowl you will find in Dallas, and by far one of the best lunch deals. In the evenings, Tei-An becomes a sleek and dimly lit restaurant filled with well-dressed diners who appreciate fresh sushi flown in daily from Japan. You can explore flavors that range from clean and briny to assertive notes that explode with umami. If you think you don't like a cut based on experiences you've had at other restaurants, Tei-An is the place to try again.
