This Golden Tulip favourite is apparently the oldest Japanese restaurant in the country, and is hugely popular with Japanese ex-pats. A small series of rooms make for a relatively cramped dining experience that wouldn’t feel out of place in Tokyo. With a trio of chefs manning the sushi bar, ordering from it is de rigeur.

This is our favorite Japanese restaurant and has been ever since we came to Bahrain. This is also a favorite of many of my friends and co workers, who happen to work at the Bahrain World Trade Center. If you are looking for proper Japanese food and value for money, this is where you should go. I find that the other Japanese restos tend to modernize their offerings and I'm not a fan - they are also overpriced. The article does not do justice to Kei. Their udon and soba are great, so I do not agree to the author's comment on the noodles. Here is where the Japanese folks go, 'nuff said.
