This guy knows sushi and how to do it right! Only problem is once you've had his sushi you'll never like other sushi the same. This is the only place I trust eating raw fish..

Best sushi ever. Nothing else compares. You will need a reservation, walk-ins very limited as it is a small restaurant.

The food and ambience was amazing! Chef Keiichi was great! We had the beef tataki and spinach, beef and jalapeño cream cheese sushi, sashimi platter and for dessert, the green tea tiramisu. Everything was so well prepared and delicious and everyone was so friendly. It felt like we were sitting in someone's home enjoying a meal together. Cons, place is... More

Can't even begin to review. Website/Yelp said they were open at 7:30 pm on a Tuesday night. Showed up and they were locked up tighter than a drum. Might be nice to be open when advertised. No signs or hours posted anywhere I could see either.

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

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.
