Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Came on a passing off chance but we thought as we’re not sushi lovers this wouldn’t be for us. Tempura veg wasn’t a great starter just a bit boring to be fair. The beef curry was just a runny version of my steak pie filling😳....Staff and surroundings were all good we should’ve known better but we tried it.More

Chose the chef's choice mixed sushi plate first and we were delighted! Unlike the chain sushi place nearby, it wasn't only tuna and salmon but also seabream, surf clam, octopus, mackerel, yellowfin tuna and more. All very fresh - perfect. The sushi was presented as...an art form. Second course: my companion chose a softshell crab dragon roll which was coated in flying fish roe. Beautifully presented and delicious. I had a simple five pieces of mackerel sashimi presented on a bed of seaweed. The mackerel had some extra prep. I think it was very mildly pickled which was lovely. All around excellent experience. We will return more frequently.More

Both me and my husband are new comers to this Restaurant, we have only been here twice but we will certainly return again. The Service is excellent as you would expect from the Japanese, we had small plates between us like the tempura prawns, the...chicken skewers, the etsu roll, rice, dumplings and many more (to much to be honest) I tried the Japanese Gin and my husband the Rum it was very nice but if you go large it can work out expensive £11 each with out the mixer so next time I we will stay to singles!More

We loved eating the delicious food offered - including younger members of the family who were well pleased too. The service was excellent, and the atmosphere warm and relaxed. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this as the best Japanese food experience offered in Liverpool.

This is my favourite restaurant in Liverpool and one of my favourite restaurants ever. I have been twice now and the service I experienced is only rivalled by Michelin Star restaurants I have visited. The staff are so friendly, helpful and considerate. And the food...is absolutely exquisite. I will keep coming back as long as they are open!More

We needed a break from the wonderful dinners both in Ireland and Liverpool. Etsu was recommended as a place that would provide a respite from wonderful European dinners and some palette cleansing . And we were not disappointed from the delicate taste of sashimi, sushi,...and beef. The scallops entree was stellar that had been delicately grilled to bring its sweetness. Another good find in Liverpool.More

Lovely restaurant, good food. Good service. But massively overpriced for what you get. I had the Unagi. Eel with rice. Small portion, that left me still hungry. £20 for a bottle of wine that's £5 in Tesco. The bill had extra items we had not...ordered added to it, and a service charge I had them remove. I always tip but not for this. Bill for 2 was over £100. I go to Japan twice a year. This same bill in Japan would have been less than £40. If you never had proper Japanese food, then try here as rlthe food is good, but be prepared to be paying a high price, and sma portions for the price.More
