The menu is divided into à la carte and omakase. Omakase is a Japanese phrase that literally means, 'I'll leave it up to you'; in the restaurant world, it means entrusting the chef. The omakase menu must be ordered at least one day and advance and is strictly per person. Diners might be treated to shimmering nigiri finished with a dab of soy, a sprinkling of sea salt or the lick of a flame from a blowtorch and then served on a glossy bamboo leaf. Each piece arrives individually to be eaten by hand. Their subtly smoky prawn nigiri are said to be utterly captivating. Sushi Tetsu is a treat worth being patient for.
