The experience of their sushi is unparalleled and truly unique. From the freshness of their ingredients to their presentation, it's truly an art form that they have perfected. The staff are all friendly and knowledgeable, always happy to help when I'm undecided on what to order.

I absolutely love the variety of TenTen's menu. They always have something new to offer, but my favorite is definitely their signature roll - the TenTen Roll! It's made with succulent salmon and tuna, paired with creamy avocado slices wrapped in crunchy tempura flakes. Even if you're not into raw fish like me, you can still enjoy it as it comes with a delicious teriyaki sauce that gives another level of flavor.

In terms of price, I think TenTen offers some of the best value for money around town – especially if you order from the Happy Hour menu. Plus, its cozy vibe makes it great for casual meals or late-night sushi dates.

All in all, TenTen provides some of the best sushi in Downtown Austin. From their quality ingredients to friendly staff and amazing deals – every visit is unique and special!
