We had planned to go there for many years, but just never made it until last week. Some commenters think the place is dated, but that was not our Impression. It is certainly not hip, rather tranquil and peaceful - we do not need to see celebrities. The food was fantastic, at the same time simple and sophisticated. We both... More

I enjoyed the degustation menu and wine pairings at Tetsuya's however when explanations were given for the various courses, the accents of the wait staff were very difficult to understand. I also found the atmosphere to be somewhat stuffy.

This was our seventh visit to Tetsuyas and the quality of food, wine and service has never faltered. It has been our restaurant of choice for birthday and anniversary celebrations. The staff are always chatty and friendly. Sometimes you are also surprised, an extra desert course of a coffee and date creme brulee, was excellent and totally unexpected. We will... More

Second visit in a few months, and definitely will be back. The foods flavour, the service, and attention to detail is fantastic.

With a table of eight, there is always a chance for things to go awry. well, that was not our experience at Tetsuyas. We had booked for the degustation menu and were ushered to our private room. From there we had a dining experience to match many in the worlds best. The menu is centred around seafood but the variety... More

Celebrated my husbands 40th here. The place is nice inside, well decorated but a little dark during the evening. Situated on the dodgy end of Kent St, a hatted restaurant like that should be near Circular Quay. 8 course meal very nice. By the 8th course you're probably already full but for a male you may be still hungry. Small... More

After looking forward to dining here for a very significant birthday of a family member, I was extremely disappointed after the meal. 8 or 9 course meal and only 1 was enjoyable. The texture was all the same, in every single dish (Mushy, soft or squishy). There were no crunchy elements, creating a very unenjoyable meal. Many of the dishes... More

The staff always make you feel like it is a special occasion. The food is simply stunning. Simple but subtle. Superb flavours & combinations. Never had a bad experience. Recommend to anyone.

Loved everything about Tetsuya's and it lived up to all we had been told about it from friends. Amazing food, wonderful staff and great atmosphere without being stuffy. Celebrated our sons birthday and it was a wonderful memorable evening. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a very special dining experience but be warned it doesn't come cheap.

Went to Tetsuya's on a Wed evening to celebrate my birthday with my wife. Excellent seafood with a Japanese/French motif and the place is elegant and simple in a subtle way. Small table number with a zen-like garden view. Fantastic service as expected.
