Long time ago The best and now ?

My wife and me had dinner in this restaurant maybe 10-12 years ago - so this is a late comment on the food, but then the only justification i can bring up for doing so - is that this restaurant was then our best ever food and since today we keep it as our number one. At the time we... read more

Managed to get a last minute booking. The place is really nice, interior was simple yet elegant. Food & Wine presentation plus service was definitely excellent. Knowing that Tetsuya is a high end dining place, we emailed to checked on dress code with the restaurant beforehand. We were told smart casual. But Boy was I surprised because there were a... More

Tetsuya's what should i say? We make it short it is what it is one of the iconic Restaurants in the World, with his stile of food and the classic backbone of Japanese/ French/ German kitchen. No doubt about the freshness and the quality of the food and the excellent knowledge of our Chinese waiter. He did pronounce even the... More

We went to Tetsuya's Singapore a few years back. The opportunity came up to be in Syndey and managed a booking for a Tueday night. The service is outstanding and what you would expect. The wine matched to the courses was excellent even though I am not a red wine drinker. The restaurant was full. The first courses were served... More

Another of our "must do" restaurants ticked off and what a delight. Everything was top notch on our visit and we left feeling well fed and superbly looked after. The restaurant itself is a lovely little building nestled within all the skyscrapers of the CBD, set well back from the road. Something of an oasis. Town Hall station is close... More

I went there with my husband and 2 best friends to celebrate my 60th birthday - my husband had asked what I wanted to do or where I wanted to go to celebrate, it took me a few months to make a decision, and I must say I am so very glad I selected Tetsuya's. From the moment we arrived... More

What better place to take your family and in-laws to meet each other for the first time than a degustation dinner in a private room at Tetsuya's? Large group booking so also booked a private room (at additional service cost). The restaurant is located on Kent St and looks like a small Japanese style garden and house that you could... More

A good meal, but for the price would have expected it to be great. The staff were lovely and attentive, although they were kept busy and service wasn't quite as fast as you would like. The decor is pretty bland. The famous garden is indeed lovely. I couldn't really fault the food. It wasn't wildly inventive, and I suppose i... More

We went there on a Saturday night so couldn't enjoy the garden view but the room in which we were seated is not very nice. Brown carpet, no table centre, no flowers,... The staff is nice but you don't have a dedicated waiter => 10 dishes/ nearly 10 different persons. The food is good but if some dishes are excellent... More
