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.

Just had dinner there one hour ago and think I have enjoyed the experience there very much! With the food being very very good (obviously), the owner-chef and his wife are extremely friendly and talky.

The sushi here is second to none, it was easily the best sushi I have had yet, and the service is fantastic from the husband and wife. It was definitely worth the hundreds of calls for months to get a reservation! The only disappointing bit...for us, unfortunately, was the price, we were shocked to get a £400 bill for 2 when we only had 2 drinks in total. The prices have certainly gone up since covid. Definitely worth a visit (just be aware of the cost as they don't tell you that part!)More

There is not a great deal to say about this place that has not already been said. I have not been to Japan yet but it is, equal with a couple of other (more expensive) places the best sushi I have had to date. Getting...a reservation was a real battle and took hours of phone calls over many months. Takahashi-san and his wife were superb hosts and the food was basically flawless. Lots of thought went into every little thing.More

Feel very privileged to have had an experience at Araki (when Araki San was still there) and now at Tetsu. While the idea is similar (small, counter seating only, pay in advance etc), the experiences were different, for instance, Takahashi San is much friendlier than...Araka San, not to mention that Araki was 3 times more expensive. Anyway, let's not talk about the booking process and long emails. We went for the early seating at 5pm. It started promptly a few minutes past 5 and finished exactly at 7:30. The time just flew past while Takahashi San prepared and served every dish with precision, love and pride. There is so much attention to detail to everything from the absolutely correct temperature of rice to roasted nori for the hand roll to the blend to the balance of condiments on each piece of Nigiri. Simply amazing and thoroghly enjoyable experience. Thank you Takahashi San and Harumi. How do we go back to eating simple Nigiri elsewhere now is the question?More

Hi, the restaurant only has 7 seats. Keep ringing and try and get a reservation the way the rest of us had to. It requires a bit of effort but it will be worth it!
