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.

Best Dining in Sydney

Having been loyal Tetsuya's devotees for 15 years. We dined there last Friday for my birthday. It is without a doubt among the best dining experiences any where in the world let alone Sydney. The service and food are beyond reproach. It still remains one of the best restaurants in the world. See... read more

Tets has quite a resume and has developed his passion for cooking to an incredible dining experience in a very captivating setup. Outstanding food and wine with very attentive service will excite the gourmet. Pre-booking for up to six months is worth the effort.

This is then 2nd time l have dined at Tetsuya with a space of 5 years in-between.Once again Tetsuya did not disappoint. The high price is offset by the extreme level of service, and the A* food. Each mouthful is a pleasure to the tastebuds and if you to pause between each bite to savor the delight of textures and... More

The night was for my husbands 40th. The degustation menu was amazing very delicate meals too nice to eat - but tasted amazing. The produce was sensational and the staff were really well trained and no matter who you asked they all had the answers. It was actually educational having chosen the matching wines (shared and it was PLENTY). The... More

From the moment we entered the restaurant, the experience was outstanding. The service was exemplary, the food exquisite. We chose the matching wines, plus oysters (an optional extra to the 10 course degustation menu), which were well worth the extra cost. The oysters were the best I have ever tasted, served in a ginger & sake dressing. There were a... More

We went for a birthday and found the food was exemplary and the service just right. We chose the matching wines with our degustation menu and enjoyed the night very much. I would recommend it as one of our best Sydney restaurants

We dined at Tetsuya and found the ambience, service and some of the dishes served for the degustation menu good but the red meat and dessert fell short of the restaurateur’s reputation .(This was the same experience we had when we dined there some years ago.) The potato soup, seafood dishes- kingfish, scampi tail, ocean trout and tooth fish were... More

My only regret is that I didn't find this restaurant sooner! It was simply mind-blowing; an adventure for the senses. Quite possibility the best restaurant I have had the pleasure of dining at, in my life. I long to return, when I am next in Sydney. I am told by a friend of mine, that it is better here in... More
