Kei is definitely the best Japanese restaurant in Kuwait - no questions. It is also one of the best in the Middle East. The fish is always very fresh, the menu has a lot of variety and many of the dishes are very creative. I would not miss a meal here.

Of all the restaurants in Kuwait that claim to have the best Japanese Cuisine this is one of 2 that actually are the best. The food used is of the highest quality and fresh, and the presentation is excellent.
