Squaremeal Review of Sushi Tetsu ?

Squaremeal London Hot 100 2016A quick glance at the website is essential before a visit to the tiny Sushi Tetsu as the chances are it may be may be fully booked. Still, once you’ve secured a perch and made it through the door, you’ll see a handful of punters, with chef/proprietor Toru Takahashi on the other side of the counter, calmly preparing the sushi and sashimi with near forensic precision. This is a husband-and-wife outfit, with spouse Harumi completing the perfect circle that is Sushi Tetsu. Since you’ve gone to all the trouble of bagging a seat, you might consider going for the bespoke ‘omakase’ menu at 96 quid a pop: what you get depends on what the chef decides is good enough, so glistening sea urchin, turbot, snow crab, black bream, octopus and (hopefully) seared otoro fatty tuna might be on the cards, all embellished with the necessary accoutrements (wasabi, soy, mirin, seaweed and chilli). From the rice to the saké, everything is impeccable.

I am so suprised that there is no review of Sushi Tetsu! I visited with my boyfriend about a month ago and I have to say I was very impressed. It is run by the Chef and his wife (I think he worked for many years at Nobu before opening his own restaurant) and as a result you get a very personal experience. The space itself is very small and there are only about 7 seats at the sushi bar, but the whole effect is very airy and well appointed. The food- well just great. You can order selections of sushi...

    Dips Dines :: Sushi Tetsu – Japanese Gem | Dips Dines

    A friend who works in the area mentioned Sushi Tetsu to me and it saddens me to think that had he not, I might still not know about it … and now that I’ve been, I can see why people like to keep hush hush about it. Hidden away in a narrow Clerkenwell alley, it’s a tiny 7 seater sushi bar, owned by ex-Nobu chef Toru Takahashi. Toru commands the kitchen, while his wife Harumi runs front of house. Sushi Tetsu is probably the closest thing in London, to an authentic sushi bar you’d find in the back streets of Tokyo & dining here was without a doubt, one of my best sushi experiences in London.

    YUMMEI :: YUMMEI: Sushi Tetsu - Farringdon - London

    Those who have been fortunate enough to get a seat at Sushi Tetsu, know of the trauma attached to finally getting that coveted reservation at this 7 seater restaurant.

    Harumi and Toru Takahashi set up shop in a tiny alleyway in Farringdon, with only 7 seats at the bar. It's so eye waveringly small you have to do a double-take. It feels so exclusive that like Sushi Tetsu was opened for the night just for you.

    Sushi Tetsu offer only sushi and sashimi. ..
