With all ingredients sourced locally, eSUSHI bosses have said the eatery “has Glasgow on its mind but Japan in its heart.”

Traditional ramen, noodles, and miso soup are all on offer, with all sushi being cooked to the preference of individual customers.

An exceptionally-crafted “dragonfly” dish is presented in front of the customer in the form of a dragon, with its uniquely-shaped sushi pieces brought to the table topped with avocado, with additional edible head and tail, sure to make it an Instagram favourite.

Proud of its Japanese heritage, the inside has been designed with the modern eater in mind and the use of traditional chopsticks and classic Japanese plates are sure to be a hit.

Where other restaurants in the city might offer a 13-page menu but offer little expertise, eSUSHI prides itself on the intimacy that each chef knows every dish.

From lunchtime boxes to three-course meals, Glasgow’s newest Japanese restaurant also offers the additional bonus of offering delivery.

Nothing has been left to chance and we think customers will find our menu offers something for everyone; from our starters and mains to our fortnightly-changed homemade desserts menu.”

eSUSHI can be found at 130 Byres Road, and it is open from noon to 10pm, Monday to Friday, and until 11pm on Saturday and Sunday. Head to esushi.org for more information.
