Description

The Kei is a small bastion of the Bahrain fine-dining scene, having quietly been serving authentic Japanese to diners for over three decades. This place definitely follows the rule that the best Japanese restaurants take up the most tiniest of spaces, and it's easy to get a Tokyo vibe from the petit size of the main dining area and wardrobe sized private dining rooms. This is the spot where Bahrain's Japanese population hit up when they want a taste of the motherland, so brush up on your Japanese and get ready for some seriously good chow.

Fresh ingredients and perfect techniques ensure that the Kei's cusine does the ancient art of Japanese cuisine justice. Classic Japanese delicacies, from sushi, maki and teppanyaki to sashimi and chicken katsu curry are prepared beautifully and taste equally awesome. You can also indulge your sweet tooth with some of the best Japanese desserts on the island, including our personal favorite; sesame ice cream. In the thirty years that the Kei has been serving chow it has accumulated a long line of special mentions and foodie awards, the most recent of which was Best Japanese Restaurant in the 2014 Time Out Restaurant Awards.

The ambiance emanates Japanese authenticity too, with Kimono clad waitresses, sakura cherry blossom print screens and bamboo. The restaurant is divided between a sushi bar, a teppanyaki room and a few private dining rooms.

Nothing comes close to Kei.

I have been visiting the restaurant since 2012. Been seated in the Tepanyaki table, the sushi bar, the private room, practically everywhere.

Their service and food is...
