Sushi and pasta that will blow your mind.

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... read more

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

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...

Thank you to Chef and his staff for making our dinner an experience we will never forget. The food was excellent. The quality and freshness make the meal a delight. We felt as though we were special guests and he was cooking only for us! That is how good the service is. We can't wait to make reservations and return... More

I took my wife here for a birthday dinner. I have lived on this town for 43 years and never knew it existed. This man serves the most amazing food I have ever had. From his sushi to his other creations are amazing. I believe this man can make dish water taste good. Spicy tuna is magical and he is... More

Stop what you are doing and make a reservation. Incredible hidden gem in Denton. New menu daily but some staples always available. Must make reservations as they only can seat about 15 people.
