A Level 10 Experience. I am routinely disappointed with many dining experiences. Etsu is a stand out place to eat with a fantastic atmosphere and friendly, prompt and professional service. 10/10

Fabulous atmosphere. Excellent culinary experience. Great friendly and casual service. Great band. And the feeling of discovering something most people don’t know about... A 10 on all fronts...

The food is exceptional, fresh and very tasty. Service was great too. It was busy the night we went, and the only problem was that it was super noisy and quite hard to have a conversation with the person next to you without yelling in their ear. Overall a great restaurant that I would recommend for smaller groups/parties as apposed to larger groups.

A popular Japanese restaurant on the Gold Coast, blending traditional with a tapas-style delivery. Plenty of plant-based options for the non-meat eater if you make note when ordering so they can use a different broth, etc. Excellent Japanese whiskey selection.
