Probably, one of the few places were you can eat fantastic Japanese food. Lucky Etsu is on Liverpool and not on Tokyo! . Totally recommendable !

Booked a table to take the wife for a nice meal. The meal was poor, boring and tasteless. The staff are lovely and very helpful but the food isnt anything to write home about.
