AMAZING MEAL

The appetizer with sushi and guacamole is one of the best things that I have ever eaten. Even the onion garnish was wonderful. I don't think that I have ever ordered a $30 appetizer before, but I would do it again now. My son (who is quite the foodie himself) and I were talking about the... read more

Myself, my wife and step-daughter decided to try this place out after all the rave we had been hearing. We had to schedule a reservation two weeks prior to even get to eat here. On arrival we were pleased at first to see the nice looking interior of this establishment. It took a bit for service to get into gear,... More

After trying to get a reservation for a few months, we finally got lucky. The outside of the building do not do this place justice. It is very small with a few tables, long sushi bar table and then some seats at the bar. We chose to sit at the bar just to have more privacy. We started with some... More

Keiichi is a wonderful, small hidden gem in Denton. The freshest sushi I've ever had, and the pasta was perfect. I understand that the chef trained in Italy, so pasta may sound weird at a Japanese restaurant, but it was great. Laid-back atmosphere and probably seats 12 people. We loved it, and made reservations to go again.

We were very excited to see what the chef at Keiichi had in store for our friends and us as! The atmosphere is very quite and understated. I expected there to be at least a little interaction with the chef as he prepared food but, there was none. The two waitresses were friendly while taking drink orders but we all... More

Saw the reviews for Keiichi online and went by to try it out on a Friday night. It is not what you'd expect where you'd expect. Located in downtown Denton, just off of the main square, it looks like an abandoned building. But inside is a small (~15 or so seats) restaurant with a Japanese chef and small staff that... More

I love this place. But it's small so you need to call ahead and make reservations. The chef combines flavors like Rembrandt combines colors. You will love every bite. Try to get in as often as we can. It's just that the place only sits about 12 people. So if you want a golden tickets - make sure you make... More

Blend the absolute best of Japanese with the absolute best of classic Italian cooking, and throw in the absolute best chef in Denton, and it's a wow experience. Very, very limited seating, but that's deliberate. Reservations a MUST.

A good friend had arranged for 20 of us to spend an evening at this restaurant. Essentially we had a tasting menu of 15 main courses. About half were lovely Japanese dishes 1/3 lovely Italian (eg lasagne) and the rest somewhat of a fusion. It may sound strange but I absolutely loved it. All the dishes were really tasty. My...
