Excellent restaurant. Great setting and location. The format and layout had me feeling like I was back in Tokyo. Can't recommend the place enough if you're looking for something authentic.

My wife and I had the pleasure of dining at Etsu the other night. The food is superb, the sashimi is so fresh, but the sushi is some of the best I've tasted outside Japan. The Sake is strong(well worth it), and the staff are very helpful and knowledgable, when it comes to a few strange things on the menu.... More

Not visited Etsu for a little while so we popped in for lunch recently and had starters and bento boxes. Just wanted to say it was excellent as usual - food delicious and staff helpful and friendly. We won't leave it quite so long before we visit again!!

The staff were very friendly and the service was outstanding. I shared a sushi board with my partner and had udon noodle soup with tempura vegetables, all of the food was lovely but the sushi was especially good. I would highly recommend Etsu to anybody who wants traditional Japanese food,
