From the moment your car stops and the valets take your keys, Tetsuya's restaurant provides understated elegance and fine dining. It's not cheap, but if you like personalised service, creative dishes and privacy, then this is the place for you. Each of the widely spaced tables has its own serving staff who will bring you dishes prepared to your specifications.... More

Being a dyed in the wool foodie, I was expecting much from this famous landmark restaurant and wasn't disappointed. Ambiance and service in my opinion struck the right balance and was greatly appreciated. The set degustation offered an incredible array of flavours to savour with subtle surprises in every way. Each new dish complimented rather than competed with each preceding... More

Went for dinner on a Saturday night. From the moment of booking, to stepping out of our car for valet parking and being ushered into our seats (we were surprisingly allocated a private room being a group of 6), to the expert recommendation for wine selection...the service was absolutely impeccable, non-pretentious and friendly. Then comes the food. Ten glorious courses,... More

We had a wonderful experience at Tetauyas. We went for our anniversary wanting a five star level of service and quality of meal. And we weren't let down. An amazing degustation 10 courses plus Delicious truffle butter and bread and they throw in an extra dish here and there as pallet cleansers.. The service was really the icing on the... More

Took my wife to Tetsuya's recently to celebrate her Birthday. The restaurant has been around for a few years now, and the décor is starting to look a little dated however the food is still very good. Not brilliant, but very good. We also had the wine matching; one small criticism however - the Sommelier seemed to be in quite... More

Went for dinner last night. I eat at great restaurants all over the world and this place came recommended. The food was good, a bit artsy but very uneven. One course was great, the next just ok. The service was slow and the timing of the courses left us sitting for 15 minute gaps, waiting for the next course to... More

We visited Tetsuya's to celebrate my husband's birthday and were not at all disappointed. Every course was exceptional and having opted to match the wine to each of the courses we came away feeling extremely satisfied. The service was impeccable with friendly and very helpful staff. We enjoyed the explanation of each course and the marriage of it with the... More

Absolutely amazing food. The signature dish ocean trout is simply sensational. The entire menu is spectacular. Overlooking the delightful courtyard gave a lovely view. The service from the greeting at the entrance to the description of each dish to the coats held ready at the door was without fault. A meal well worth the price and perhaps a yearly visit.... More

A combination of fine Japanese tradition, outstanding food, delicate serving, and a fine winelist makes it simply fantastic... We will be back.
