This restaurant is so popular, one has to make reservations far in advance, which we did. It is a relatively small but well-appointed restaurant and sushi bar. The owner/chef is a master sushi chef, and the quality and presentation are top-notch. All four of us had an excellent time. Just beware it is an expensive restaurant. My wife and I... More

"World Class" food served right here in Denton. Best Blue Fin Tune ever by Chef Keiichi. By reservation only, small, intimate setting...Be sure to ask the chef for his recommendation. I've heard of folks flying in from surrounding states to eat here...

First but not last time to visit Keiichi. Everything was perfect, from the sashimi appetizer to the rolls to the Japanese style spare ribs. All cut perfectly, tender enough to melt in your mouth. There's a surprising amount of sushi places in Denton County but I may never go back to any of them as none can measure up. Small... More

I'm a big foodie. I own several national food and wine events and manage several chefs. I had wanted to eat here for ages but am always traveling. I took a wild chance and called to see if there was a cancellation or if I could squeeze in. The host answering the phone told me I actually could come there... More

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
