Teishoku 8 offers a good selection of Japanese food at a reasonable price
Generous portions of traditional Japanese dishes including grilled mackerel, sashimi and teriyaki steak, served in comfortable surroundings – no wonder people are queueing to get in
If you happen to be in Tuen Mun or are willing to make the trek westward, there are worse places to stop for a reasonably priced Japanese meal than Teishoku 8.
The restaurant, decked out with warm wooden panels and grey brick walls, is tucked away in the corner of the K-Point shopping mall, and is popular enough to have people lining up for seats.
Its menu offers a selection of traditional Japanese fare – from udon and grilled mackerel to sashimi and teriyaki steak.
Teishoku has rows of tables, and a large wooden table for communal dining. In the corner is a self-service station where diners can have as much as they want of rice, tea and miso soup.
The food was colourful and luxurious for its price. The centrepiece of the deluxe seafood donburi set (HK$58) was a bowl of fresh sashimi slices atop radish slices and rice. Arranged next to it was a small bowl of miso soup, a three-tray platter of side dishes such as wakame seaweed salad, and a scoop of pudding. It wasn’t the most dazzling sashimi we’ve tasted but it was fresh-tasting and affordable.
The mixed sashimi platter (HK$30) also did not disappoint, and we also liked the salt-covered grilled red shrimp (HK$10 for a small serving, HK$30 for a large one).

We also sampled the teriyaki steak (HK$58), which was well seasoned and a generous serving.
While we wouldn’t make the journey just to eat here, Teishoku 8 is a good place for good food with friendly service in a comfortable setting, and won’t put too much strain on your bank account.
