Probably the best sushi around.

Forget going to Dallas, Plano or Frisco. If you want phenomenal sushi go to Keichi. This is a tiny restaurant, you must make a reservation - no walk-ins. Sushi selection, at least when we last went there, was limited but as fresh as can be had.

If you drive past this place, you would never guess that this is the best kept secret in Denton. This is my favorite place to eat in all of DFW. Kei is awesome and the wait staff are cool. The food is unbelievable. My husband and I don't eat sushi and this is our favorite. Highly recommend!!! But call at... More

I have known K since his early days of his fine restaurant and he has Never disappointed myself or anyone I have sent there as his sushi is top notch from quality to presentation! But if you don't like sushi (I pity you, ha) he makes some awesome non-sushi dishes - his Italian is super as he did that for... More

We had the pleasure of sitting at the table surrounding the Chef and witnessing his creations with 6 others. Every plate was stunning. The Beef Tataki & Spinach, Tuna & Guacamole, Japanese-style ginger soy Ribs & Tirimisu were our choices. All were great but we eagerly await returning to try some of his other choices.

Small but cozy place with excellent service. Sit at the sushi bar and witness the skillful preparation of the great food. Pricey but worth every penny!

I've visited Keiichi twice. It's decent, but it doesn't really live up to the hype (or the prices). Don't get me wrong, the food was fine, it just wasn't over-the-top amazing like all of the reviews would have you believe.

Finally was able to get a booking when all the family was together + my sons girlfriend! I've never sat anywhere except at the chefs table, we love to watch Keiichi work his magic and this time was no exception! We always order the tuna w/ avocado because it's always the favourite! We love to have Keiichi make his choice... More

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 marinade and trying to... More
