I have been dining at Tetsuya's since the 80s and have always been happy with the experience. One of the things I like about Tetsuya's is that it is BYO which allowed us to bring a lovely Montrose 2005.The signature ocean trout and the lamb backstrap impressed me the most. The waiter was excellent. Our car was waiting for us... More

It's been an institution in Sydney since the 80's and its reputation is firmly established as a top restaurant that serves memorable, outstanding food. Today the reputation stands up head and shoulders above many others in Sydney.  Degustation with matching wine - delicious, take your time as this is fabulous food and don't plan to drive!! Iconic dish of ocean... More

We had not dined at Tetsuya for approximately 4 years. The last time we were there it was stunning and we could not wait to return. It did take a long time to get back but what a difference. Tetsuya's stunning has become bland. A huge pity and disappointment, waiting 20 minutes for a simple drink, every dish having the... More

It seems like we should have gone to Tetsuya several years ago as the magic that others shared then seems long gone. The food, while still excellent and correct lacks any sense of renewed inspiration and staff and pace of the meal too well practiced and executed without any feeling. Tetsuya is a great chef but his restaurant no longer... More

Took a friend for his birthday dinner and enjoyed an amazing ten course meal, beautifully matched wines, and excellent service. A truly wonderful experience.

A most impressive evening. This is certainly not a normal dining experience, and it will be memorable for many years. And while it was excellent, I have to award the restaurant 4 stars (really 4.5). It gets highest marks for service, presentation, creativity and quality. However, it gets dinged due to a great similarity of flavors that lacked punch. Not... More

I visited Tetsuya's a few weeks ago. Since this is similar to a Michelin I will review this at that level, after all we did spent £300. When we arrived we were greeted warmly and shown to our table. - Food lacked creativity, design and presentation. Desserts were good. Trout was good as was the big eye tuna sashimi. Savoury... More

Lets start with the decor, outdated. All the textures of the food were the same. We had to wait at least half an hour between each course , we got there at 630 and didn't leave until 1045, it was exhausting. Another table complained and walked out, we perservered. The scampi tail was tough and flavourless, the chicken liver parfait... More

The 9 course degustation menu is divine. Matching wines really made it a special experience. This is a special occasion restaurant, not a meal to be rushed. Allow 3 hours and relax and enjoy.

No amount of words can describe how good the meal I had here was! The confit ocean trout was perfection!
