In southeast Wichita, I was looking for a restaurant I hadn’t been to in a while. Teriyaki House immediately caught my attention. It has been about five years since my last visit. I remember the first visit going well and I thought why not come back for a revisited review.

Teriyaki House is a Japanese restaurant that serves different rice, noodle, and soup dishes that also have other Asian flavors.
Going through the menu, I asked my server what the popular dishes were. She said the most popular dish was the teriyaki chicken bowl. After that, the hot basil beef bowl was the second most ordered dish. She said the mains would take about 10-15 minutes with how busy they were, so I ordered a bowl of Tom Yum Chicken Soup to start.
The Tom Yum chicken was excellent. It was the perfect combination of acidity and spice. It rivaled many Thai restaurants in town and at $3.95 this soup was also one of the most competitive Tom Yum soups.
And as I was told, the rest of my meals came out about ten minutes later.
Of the two dishes, the hot basil beef bowl was my favourite. It was served with steamed rice and basil, jalapeno, onion, mushrooms, carrots and chili garlic sauce. It was a very fragrant dish that gave my senses a virtual massage. I loved the use of basil where there was plenty, but not so much to overpower the dish. It was a flavorful meal that had just the right amount of spice.
The teriyaki chicken bowl ranked a bit lower on my list. There wasn’t much teriyaki sauce, but I was given a bottle so that helped. I could see how on take out orders this could be a problem, however. Once drizzled with teriyaki sauce, it tasted so much better. The chicken itself was pretty good, but if I’m being completely honest, I’d say Tuta’s Teriyaki was a cut above. If you are a chicken fan, I would definitely go with the basil hot dish but with chicken.
Probably the best part of Teriyaki House was how affordable everything was. The prices were very competitive. All three courses were less than $20 before tip. Everything came out in a timely manner and the server was very friendly. All in all it was a great place and one I would definitely visit frequently if I was more in the southeast part of town.
