Tetsuya's serves a ten course degustation menu. The degustation is unique, based on the Japanese philosophy of using natural seasonal flavours, enhanced by classic French technique and utilising the freshest possible ingredients. Tetsuya designed his own on-site "test kitchen" within the restaurant to enable him to create the constantly evolving and inspiring dishes on which he has built his esteemed international reputation.

Tetsuya's offers one of Sydney's most comprehensive wine lists and our sommeliers will, upon request, match the dishes with wine available by the glass.

Superb for a 50th wedding anniversary

We dined at Tetsuya's in early February for my parent's 50th wedding anniversary, and were given a private dining room as there were 13 of us (including smallish children). This was our second visit, the first for a 60th birthday in 1998 when Tetsuya's was at Rozelle. The degustation menu was... read more

If you love food at its finest, then this is one tasting menu that is an absolute must. Amazing matched wines, brilliant service in opulent surroundings. There are always plenty of new exciting restaurants popping up in Sydney, but this may still be the yard stick!!

I was lucky enough to visit Tets for my first ever degustation. The wait staff and sommelier were all fantastic and the food was pretty amazing. Scampi dish was definitely best in show.

Booked this for a special meal. Degustation with matching wines. We had a great night. The weather was bucketing down. I wish either I or the taxi driver had known to drive into the carpark and sheltered drop off area

This was by far one of our best meals. The service was excellent, the food was top notch, and the evening was perfect! Go for the wine flight and enjoy everything this restaurant has to offer!

We absolutely love Tets! This is where I want to go every birthday. Can always rely on the world famous confit trout to be on the menu :)

We went with a small family group as a celebration and had the classic degastation. Really enjoyed the whole experience. Attentive staff, an amazing location and great food!

I returned to Tetsuya's first time after seven years. The experience seven years ago was awesome. While service quality and freshness of products is still very high, I missed creativity this time. From the 9 courses (the tenth required extra payment) not a single one made the way in my long-term memory. For me price-value doesn't add up anymore.

A Sydney institution and any foodie's (aged over 30 at least) first thought when thinking degustation, fine dining and five star service. We enjoyed a celebratory dinner here and it was faultless. The service was calm, refined and what I would expect from a restaurant of this calibre. We're always a fan of the house made butter when dining out... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
