My husband and I went to Kei with two friends for lunch. Overall, we had a good experience. First the good things:
- The ambiance is very modern, white and clean! While it gives the restaurant a formal feel, it isn’t pretentious and over the top
- The service is good – our waiter had a good sense of humor and the sommelier did a good job with the wine recommendations
- The food was definitely the STAR as it was innovative and tasty- French food with an Asian flair. We had opted for the shorter menu, which by itself was made up of 4 courses, not including the amuse bouche and palate cleanser. For dessert, we were given 3 different desserts!
What I was disappointed about was that they did not properly take into account the dietary restrictions we had specified at the time of our reservation. While they were able to replace my one seafood course with vegetables, I dont think they put much thought into that dish. Also, while I had originally opted for the shorter menu (4 courses), I quickly changed my mind, and wanted to go for the 6-course menu. This seemed to cause some confusion amongst the staff and I was finally told by the waiter that it was better that I stick to the 4 course menu as I didn’t eat seafood/fish and that they wouldn’t be able to provide a good experience on the 6 course menu for me. This seemed a little odd to me, as they should have planned enough options incase I wanted to go for the 6 course meal
That said, despite this, we had a good experience and would recommend it to our other friends.
