Five years been passing this place. First it looked out of business. Closed. Sign was old and falling apart. Weeds in the parking lot. Finally there was a new sign. I read so many rave reviews of the chef and his sushi, had to give it a shot. But like everyone else, had to make reservations weeks in advance. Save... More

I have to say I was impressed. Small little restaurant but big taste! My beef, jalapeño, cream cheese roll was to die for!! Can't wait to go back!

This was one of the best restaurants for sushi that I have ever visited. Atmosphere is minimal, but the food more than makes up for it. It is a very small place, so be sure to make reservations.

If you are looking for a dining experience, Keiichi is your best bet. It is not much to look at on the outside, because they get most of their business by word of mouth, not by flashy decorations. The chef has a unique story, which is reflected in the style of food he prepares in front of you. Very wonderful... More

Keiichi is an total gem. I can not recommend this place enough. It is more than just a restaurant, it's an experience. The chef is a true Japanese trained sushi chef, and has also trained in Italian cuisine, so his dessert menu includes an dreamy authentic tiramisu. He prepares your food like a zen master while you sit at the... More

Reservations a must. The jalapeño,cream cheese beef appetizer roll is the best thing I have eaten. The marinated tuna with guacamole is outstanding. Worth the high price tag.

This establishment was highly rated and we were excited to see what all the fuss was about. It was a huge disappointment. The outside is very drab and parking is extremely limited. We came into the door and before we could be greeted a rude server said if we didn't have reservations that we had to leave. It was embarrassing... More

Everything about this place is totally Denton but the food is NYC style. It's delicious. K does the preparation of the sushi in front of you. The steak roll is a MUST. We could just eat about 4 of those for a meal and call it a night. Don't be mistaken by all the delicious and fresh sushi, the pasta... More

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
