It's not just a meal at Tets but a full experience taking over 2 hours. Despite the numerous courses you may still end up being hungry if you don't fill up on some of the bread.

The tasting menu offers no individual choices, but they cater to any food restrictions. The entire table gets the same dishes for every course -- each of which was delicious. It doesn't pay to mention the individual items since you have no choice. Different rooms in the restaurant have different menus so they can substitute if a particular food is... More

yes the food is nice, but the place now feels like a production line. It's a set menu so all 60 odd dinners get the SAME food, the SAME explanation and in many cases the SAME wine. Serve that many people the SAME thing and the enthusiasm soon dwindles from the wait staff. When you pay over $300/head you expect... More

I can't fault the place. My partner took me here for my 25th birthday and I was blown away. The restaurant is just off a busy street in Sydney CBD but the garden layout made it feel like you were dining in a secret hidden japanese restaurant. I enjoyed everything on the degustation menu. The food I could not fault,... More

Made an online reservations about few months before we were in Sydney! The place looks clean cut in the dining area, nothing over the top, and the tables were quite distant away from one another giving us total privacy. Though their speciality was their trout, I simply loved the way the lamb was cook! Juicy & full of flavor! Ask... More

Tetsuya's is a special place for my husband and myself. One of our first few date places while I was working in Sydney. Since then we have been back a couple of times and Tetsuya has always been very consistent in terms of food and service. We are always made to feel so special which makes us want to come... More

If you can't bear too much raw seafood than this is not the place for you. The first 5 courses are basically raw, followed by a well cooked beef but continued again with a half-done quail. Food is undoubtably world class but the protocol of serving, i.e. 8 courses over about 4 hours is just too long. Don't plan to... More

Let me start by saying that this was a special occasion, as I had planned for some time to propose to my girlfriend on this night at Tetsuya's. In the lead up to the night, the staff (Keelie) was amazing and plans were made for the proposal. On the night, I could not fault the staff, as they made the... More

Second time here. The food was as delicious and a treat to the palate as I remember with. My absolute favourites were the soy custard as well as the basil soup/ice cream dessert. Staff were wonderful, very friendly and inviting, polite. My only disappointment was the marinated raw scampi + egg yolk dish. The texture and taste just did not... More

Amazing experience, more art than food (I thought), incredible flavours, and good company for the valentines day shared table idea.
