My daughter organised this dinner to celebrate my birthday. It was a pleasant surprise but I think she paid too much for the night. Food was good but my husband did not eat seafood so he missed out and the vegetarian food offered to him was no match to ours. On the whole, I think you paid for the name... More

I had been wanting to visit Testuyas for a long time, after experiencing Vue De Monde and Per Se in NYC. Tetsuyas was on my 'To Do ' list. I was not disappointed. I booked a good 10 months in advance and rewarded with a table on the window looking out to the beautiful Japanese garden. We chose the matching... More

This is one of the best meals I have ever eaten - the restaurant itself is gorgeous (and was years ago when it was the Suntory), the staff pleasant and helpful. But the food. Oh the food. From the bread to the aperitifs - my mouth was the happiest it has ever been. Wish I could afford to eat here... More

I first ate at Tetsuya's when it was a small, unpretentious restaurant in Balmain many years ago. It was extraordinary. So when a group of friends suggested a celebration at the much acclaimed restaurant, now in the city, I was very excited. The venue is luscious. The Japanese garden setting transports all diners in a bubble of tranquillity, from the... More

Tetsuya's isn't just a restaurant to go and have a meal it's a restuarant that offers an experience. Expensive, but if you can, try it at least once. At the end of your meal you may well start thinking of saving up to go again.

Spent a wonderful Saturday afternoon with friends celebrating my birthday. We has a private room as there was 10 of us dining. The food was fantastic as usual as was the service. In my opinion Tetsuys's is the best restaurant in Australia.

The tasting menu was beautifully constructed, the courses flowed and there was a perfect amount of time between courses. The staff were attentive and friendly, without being intrusive. It is no surprise that the trout course is their signature dish and the chocolate mousse cake was phenomenal. Worth every penny and I would love to return.

To be transported away from the reality of busy sydney by a dining experience is rare. From the reception to the to the farewells this is a dining journey. Match the wines and go all in. You will be rewarded.
