While out in southeast Wichita, I was on the hunt for a restaurant I haven’t been to in a while. Teriyaki House immediately caught my eye. It’s been roughly five years since my last visit. I remember the first visit going well and figured why not return for a revisited review.

Teriyaki House is a Japanese restaurant that serves different rice, noodles and soup dishes that also have other Asian flare to them.
While browsing 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 dishes would take roughly 10-15 minutes with how busy they were, so I ordered a Tom Yum chicken soup bowl to start.
The Tom Yum chicken was excellent. It was the perfect combination of sourness and spice. It rivaled many of the Thai restaurants in town and at $3.95, this soup was also one of the most competitively priced Tom Yum soups.
And just as I was told, the rest of my meals came out about ten minutes later.
Between the two dishes, the hot basil beef bowl was my favorite. It was served with steamed rice and basil, jalapeno, onion, mushroom, carrots and chili garlic sauce. It was a very fragrant dish that gave my senses a virtual massage. I loved the usage of basil to where there was plenty of it, but not so much to overtake the dish. It was a savory meal that had just the right amount of spice to it.
The chicken teriyaki bowl ranked a little lower on my list. There wasn’t much teriyaki sauce, but I was given a bottle of it, so that helped. I could see how on carryout orders that might be an issue, though. Once doused in teriyaki sauce, it was much better. The chicken itself was pretty good, but if I’m being completely honest, I’d say that Tuta’s Teriyaki was a step above. If you’re a chicken fan, I’d definitely go with the hot basil dish but with chicken.
Probably the best part about Teriyaki House was how affordable everything was. The prices were very competitive. The three dishes were under $20 before tip. Everything came out in a timely manner and the server was very friendly. Overall, it was a great place and one I would certainly visit frequently if I was in the southeast part of town more.
Here’s the menu:
