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.

Awesome experience!

Decided to visit Tetsuya's for the first time taking the opportunity that my parents were visiting me in Sydney. Booked a table for dinner at 7:30pm on Saturday when the most of the tables looked fully booked. We're satisfied with the service offered during our entire stay there. Before the... read more

I had dinner last Saturday night with a friend and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. It took about 3.5 hours and the time just flew by. The food was spectacular though my friend wasn't that enthralled with the ocean trout, she thought it was a bit too "mealy" rather than flaky but I thought it was incredibly flavourful and very...

Check my food blog for the entire review【http://missneverfull.com/sydney-tetsuyas/】 Only one $220 AUD menu was served. Loved most of the dishes, the veal tenderloin, scampi, quail, etc. The dishes was processed in a French way with a Japanese twist. Except the most famous ocean trout, it was large in size but the seasoning was too salty for our liking. The chocolate... More

Sydney is like my 2nd home, and every year I travel to Australia to see friends and check out the latest eating places. I've lived and worked in Sydney (American Express) from 2005-2006 and even though it has been almost 10 years since I've left Australia, one thing I remember for sure is my virgin fine dining experience at Tetsuya....

Where do I begin...let me start by saying that it was a stunning sensory experience on every level. The ambiance, the attentive staff, the little touches (giving you a little bench to put your bag on) all make you feel relaxed and pampered and you haven't even eaten yet! You're given a bit of a debrief at the start of... More

Made reservation one month in advance upon a friend's suggestion. The meal was fantastic!!! They serve chef's selection set menu only. The fish and seafood dishes were definitely the best especially the signature dish of the trout. What a wonderful experience! Price is not cheap but given the quality of the food and the services it worth every penny! I... More

My husband and I have waiting to visit Tetsuya's for about 4-5 years now and after such a long wait we can safely say it was well worth it! We booked 6 months in advanced and used my birthday as the excuse to go celebrate. Starting the night through their Valet service, everything was speedy, convenient and fuss free. Everyone... More

Don't go there expecting a cheap japanese meal. We were prepared to pay the price about $350 per head with exquisite wines for the degustation. Everything from your arrival to your experience at the table is relaxed, exquisite and a gourmet delight. My second visit and I will carry the memories of a very special night with my daughter and...

We went to Tetsuya's for my husband's birthday and loved the location of the restaurant. It's nestled in a beautiful building, set back off a main road in the middle of the city but away from the hustle and bustle. A real oasis in the middle of town. The food was a little hit and miss. The fish dishes were... More

After waiting months for our reservation we were finally able to experience the famous degustation menu of Tetsuya's. The food was an experience, beautifully presented, subtle flavours and a unique experience on the pallet. The menu is heavily seafood based which I was initially worried about when the waiter informed us of this as I'm not a huge fan of... More
