My family & I had the Shaggy Dog (excellent), Tuna Tower (chips were soggy & didn’t hold the food up well), Spider Hand Roll (excellent), Beef Rib BBQ Teriyaki (excellent), Julie Crunch Roll (excellent), Angry Lion Roll (excellent), Baked Mussels (excellent), & Peppered Blue Fin Toro (excellent). We were seated at the front of the restaurant and it was packed, so of course a lil noisy, but if your party is only 4-6 people at a round table you can hear everyone at your table and still enjoy even if the restaurant is loud. My family likes the noise, but if you don’t then don’t come at peak hours. All in all the food was tasty & fresh 😋, the service was fast, & the staff were friendly. We’ll be back 😊

It was a cold day surprisingly & the hosts were on the slower side. There was two parties ahead of me and both were told they had to wait, but I still stood behind them for about 10 minutes. As soon as they got to me, I was seated quick because I reserved on OpenTable. I recommend this because I dined on a Saturday at 4:30 PM and it was packed. Considering it was cold, it would have been better if the hosts weren’t confused about wait times with the parties in front of me cause people were out the door cause the waiting area is small. On the other hand, the food was great! We waited about 30 minutes for everything to come out, but it’s sushi and it takes time but then again they have a lot of sushi chefs. Furthermore, the waiter checked on us once & didn’t at all on my previous two visits. I didn’t mind though, but if you like attention & want a refill or the check to come fast it’s a problem. Moreover, if you like alcohol, they have 5 or so seasonal drinks that are all intriguing. I had the Irish coffee and it didn’t disappoint. Oh, & they never skimp on the alcohol with any drink so that’s a plus! All in all, it was a great experience for me, but I’d say be smart & use open table or get take out on busy times!

Service is terrible. Food slow. Only got appetizers in 1 hour and 20 minutes. Waitress didn’t want to talk to you— put your food on the table then look away and left.

One of the best places for Sushi in Sugar Land. Staff was very attentive, selections were fresh and different, and the value for the portions was spot on. It's crowded for a reason!

Food was delicious as always. Ambiance and noise level were moderate and comfortable to enjoy a dinner with others. However, I have had better service there before. I was kinda disappointed that our server didn’t know how to answer some questions I had about the cocktails and basic sake questions. Other than that, my family and I had a lovely dinner.

Keepers is hands down our favorite restaurant. The food is always consistently perfect. The service is always very good. The employees are very personable and remember us every time we come in. I would say we average at least 2 times per week there. Not once have we ever had a less than stellar experience. If sushi is your thing then you seriously need to try this place.

Staff was very accommodating, changed a party of 5 reservation to party of 9, last minute even though it was at 4pm (not peak time). Service/Waiter was great. The food was fresh and delish! Everything ordered was delicious and nothing disappoint. My ONLY complaint was that it took a bit long for the food to come out (which I do understand that during this Covid time, there are low staff) but it wasn't that busy in the restaurant and saw there were quite a bit of staff at this restaurant than most....
But overall, it was a great experience for my first time here and will definitely be back!

We dined yesterday after a 2+ year hiatus. I appreciated that the entire staff wore masks. However, the service from our waiter was lackluster. He was not attentive, and never came by to ask how the food was after we received our order. The spicy chicken egg rolls were horrible. They should change the name to bland lettuce rolls. There was barely any chicken in the midst of endless lettuce and no seasoning. When we mentioned it to our waiter his response was “Oh ok”. This used to be one of my favorite sushi spots in the area. I doubt I’ll return anytime soon.

Party of six on a busy Saturday night. We've dined at Keepers many times as a couple; this was the first time as a group of 6. You know how some restaurants have 'front' and 'back' waiters? So when your order is ready, there are two or three additional waiters ready to jump in and help bring ALL the entrees out at the SAME TIME. Not at Keepers! First one dish came out, then ten minutes later two more, then another ten minutes two more, then finally, after 35 minutes, the last entree for the final person came out! SO disorganized. The kitchen and sushi bar need to REORGANIZE so that orders for groups are prepared, first come first serve, as a group. The food of course was very good, except for the long wait between the individual entrees coming out. The waiter was trying very hard -- not his fault. He had to rush back to get one dish, then rush back to get two more for a different table, then rush back and forth to get one dish for a third table. on and on... so much wasted effort because the kitchen was so disorganized! So; in conclusion: Go to Keepers as a couple. Do NOT go when they are busy on a Friday or Saturday night, and do NOT go there as a group larger then one or two people!

Easily my favorite sushi restaurant in all of SL and one of the best in the Greater Houston area! The food is just too consistent and too tasty. We started with a few different pieces of nigiri, including the Blackened Tuna, which is one of the best flavored/seasoned pieces of nigiri in town. I’d also highly recommend the Beef Tataki (Kitchen) and Jalapeño Age as appetizers to get a mix of flavorful and spicy. For sushi, the Hot Mama is our go-to roll and never disappoints. We’ll definitely be stopping by again soon!

We visit Keeper's about once per week, we love it! Last night was busy, as usual! The bartender was also our waitress and it was crazy, busy and she was outstanding!! Way to hustle, she didn't miss a beat! We enjoyed having her serve us and as stressful as her night must have been she smiled and was incredibly gracious and never once complained.
