A truly memorable experience

We shared an amazing night with wonderful friends. Every dish has the wow factor - visually and taste wise. Wine pairings carefully selected to compliment the food. A veritable feast with dish after dish astonishing. Heartily recommend this.

Tetsuya's serves Yellow Fin Tuna on their menu which is disgraceful especially in Sydney a city claiming to be sustainable. Green Peace Asia Pacific has Yellow Fin Tuna on the Redlist of Threatened Species lists the Yellowfin Tuna as 'Near Threatened'. This a hat rated restaurant how can possibly condone this behaviour just for an expensive dinning experience. This restaurant... More

We visited Tetsuya's for a Birthday treat and we were not disappointed, from arrival at the electric gate we were made to feel very special. Having known of the restaurant for some time we had always wanted to visit. Service and staff were friendly and not too pretentious as you sometimes find in upmarket restaurants, I loved the food, some... More

I participated in a degustation diner out with work colleagues that we planned well in advance. There were sixteen of us and we had a private dining room upstairs and were looked after wonderfully despite us being a little rowdy. We had a lot of catching up to do having come together from across several states and we enjoyed an... More

Amazing venue for a birthday dinner. Staff were attentive, friendly and great with the small children. We were only charged for the dishes that the children ate and a private room was great for the kids. Degustation menu with matched wines was excellent. Food was fresh, modern Japanese with a French influence. As each course is served the waiter explains... More

Going to Tetsuya's is always a treat. The wait staff are very attentive as usual and the dishes are superb. This is not a restaurant for diners who want everything cooked but is for the discerning palate. The 10 course degustation is truly magnificent, especially when matched up with the appropriate wines. The little Japanese garden and brook is a... More

We flew up to Sydney a while ago just to try this place out and I must admit I wasn't too impressed with the food as I thought I would be after hearing so many people bragging about this place for so many years. We both had the tasting menu with matching wine. The one dish I didn't enjoy as... More

An institution in Sydney and a must visit for anyone who loves modern Japanese cuisine. On the pricey side but well worth it!

My wife and I went for dinner during the week on our Wedding Anniversary. We've always said we'd go there but never quite made it. We're sorry we didn't go earlier as the service was stunning and the food matched it. We've eaten at most of Sydney's top restaurant and Tetsuya's makes them all appear lacking.
