Always the best sushi and service around. We are so lucky to have this little slice of Heaven in our neighborhood. Juan is so fun to watch if you are lucky enough to sit at the sushi bar. Leta is an amazing server......

For my husband’s birthday my mother in law and I took him to Keeper’s. Food was good as usual. Service was slow considering it was lunch and it didn’t look all that busy.
Nothing special for his birthday, they didn’t even offer dessert...but overall we still love the food here.

We've been to Keepers many times and the food, I will say, is always good and at a good price. When reserving a table, I advise that you go in early to see which table you would like (pending on your group). I asked for a table in the back and was told that it was already reserved - only to find out that throughout our time at the restaurant (4 hours), the table wasn't even used at all. :{ The service is slow. We kindly had to reminded our server to check up on our group every now and again, but service didn't improve. I gave 2 stars due to reservation and service.

Valentines! We got seated in the new section. I guess it was the kids section? Lots of crying kids. One threw his car at us. Very loud room. I recommend the front room for sure. And yes, I had reservations. :( bummer.

They have a happy hour pricing menu that was good for all day Sunday. Saves you $1-$2 off many items. I had the Salmon Miso Soup (not on happy hour), the beef negimaki (sp?), Philadelphia hand roll, 3 x blackened salmon nigiri, and shrimp tempura. Also had the tropical fizz drink. Staff was awesome and the food amazing. Sat at the sushi bar, it's always fun to watch them make the sushi. Highly recommend them.

Most of our party got food that was cold/cool (not hot as intended) - the waitstaff was very helpful in getting that taken care of, but that was less than ideal (and having that happen at one previous visit was the main reason we almost did not return to give another chance).

Thank goodness they had space although they were so busy! My reservation through open table for three people did not show on their records even though I had confirmed it from my email! They were still able to seat us right away but they were packed. Love their food and service!

We've lived in the area but never attended this restaurant. They have two different happy hours in the evening so when we arrived for dinner we were pleasantly surprised. There's a ton of food options and the service was good & it didn't take long to arrive - even with a full house. We will be back again to visit!

Terrible service! Never cleared dishes and never came-back to see if food was okay. Soba noodles tasted fisheye and had very little chicken. Chicken teriyaki was not very good and fries were cold. This was a very poor experience for our first visit.

We went for a family Christmas dinner. We waited for over an hour for sushi. Other tables that came in after us received their orders before us. After questioning the waiter on the status of our food, he rudely replied “I’m waiting too”! After asking to speak with the manager it was clear that the sushi order had not even been put in! We decided to eat left overs at home. Will never be going back!

It was pouring rain this day, so Friday night was not as crowded as it normally would be. Food was great! I tried the snow cocktail drink to start and I loved it! Definitely will start off with that again if they still have the seasonal drink.
Great food and great place for young, old, families, singles...

Keepers is one of my favorite restaurants done right. It’s not a chain and it is a local staple. I wish their selection of saké would be more robust but a great restaurant nonetheless.

We celebrated my little sister’s 17th birthday here. The food and the service were great! They even gave us a free birthday dessert! Just wished it was a little quieter and the table was a bit bigger to accommodate the 6 of us, but over all it was a great experience! Delicious food, awesome service, and an over all successful birthday celebration!

Freshest and best sushi anywhere in southwest Houston. Keeper's continues to offer the freshest, tastiest seafood and sushi around. Never disappoints in quality - worth the drive from anywhere - fortunately I just have to come from Missouri City but by son in law comes from Katy for Keeper's!!!

We had never eaten here before. Keeper’s was recommended by multiple people. We went with a friend that is Vegan. He had an ample selection and they were very accommodating. The hostess and supporting staff were friendly and joyous. The food was prepared in a timely manner and was delicious. The recommendations by staff were excellent as well. The ambiance was on loud, but was on par for the crowd.

We usually love this restaurant. This visit, however, was disappointing. There were 3 people in our party, and the first dish came out quickly. The second dish arrived at a different time. The third person in our party sat there for 20 plus minutes watching the other two people get and finish their food before being served. The servers/kitchen need to be better at getting out orders together. It makes for a very awkward dining experience where one person waits and doesn't get their food in a timely manner. Moreover, there were tables that were in and out after us.
