This was our first time at Tetsuya. We were welcomed by friendly staffs and we got the seat next to the windows. My partner and I can't drink much, so we were introduced to their tea degustation to match our meal. It was the best decision we made! Tea were refreshing, and complement the food very well. Waiters are professional... More

When you hear about this place from everyone you expect a lot. We did and it fell short of our expectations. I like the degustation concept if its done well, our experience was a bit hit and miss. Firstly the good, the service was efficient and professional throughout. The ambience is great, it looks out onto a courtyard with a... More

excellent Restaurant in the middle of Sydney. 10 course menu only. THE best place I have been in Australia. Only 4 out of 5, because quite expensive. You could have the same quality in Europe (France, Germany) for the half amount.

Tetsuya is still one of the best and most imaginative restaurants in the southern hemisphere. The service is correct and professional, the food delightful with interesting variations on the basic japanese kaiseki theme and the wines are expertly paired to compliment and enhance the food. Worth the high price.

A few friends and I visited Tetsuya's back in December for the 8 course degustation. To be honest I don't like fish but what was dished up was superb. The service was A1 the only let down was it was a bit pricey but would recommend at least one visit.

I have been to Tetsuya's twice and wish I could go more often (however they are not cheap and need to make a reservation few months prior due to their popularity) The ocean trout which is Tetsuya's signature dish is to die for.
