We dined today at Tetsuya 's to celebrate my birthday. The food preparation was absolutely delicious. The attention to detail was great. The pacing of food, tea matching was also great. The calibre and service of the staff are 5 star. They explain all beverages, meals and are very attentive. If you are celebrating a special occasion, you must visit... More

今晚的晚餐用於 Tetsuya's,一家以主廚名字命名的餐廳. 主廚曾入選世界五大名廚之一.餐廳晚上只提供一種menu,所以基本上不用選. 蠔一入口,真的驚為天人!除了生蠔本身的鮮味與甜味都有保留下來,主廚在上所加之醬料完全發揮了日本人對海鮮生食無可比擬的經驗與天分,增加了它優雅的一面,完美的一道生蠔料理!第二道為 Savoury Custard with Avruga,魚子與鹹蛋塔的搭配,非常的棒. Confit of Petuna Ocean Trout With a Salad of Celery, Witlof, Apple & Unpasteurised Ocean Trout Roe,這道可是他們家的招牌啊!非常的讚啊,鮭魚的選擇非常重要,油脂的分布完全會影響這道菜的表現!

We ordered the 9 course which really seemed like a 12 course which i think included 4 courses of deserts. Half of our group wasn't impressed but i definitely had an excellent experience. we went there with 2 other couples, the service was excellent and most of the dishes unique. the picture you see above looked like a thick piece...

Always wanted to try Tetsuya's and the food and service did not disappoint. I was a little disappointed with the ambiance as the table we were seated at did not have an outlook of the garden but overall a great experience. Would highly recommend for a special occasion as the degustation was delicious.

After a bad experience with the reservations staff, we were a bit put off to try again for another reservation, but glad that we did! It was a fantastic experience where the food was fresh and delicious -- and different ... creative (but not pretentious), and the wait staff was knowledgeable and attentive (without being too in-your-face). Would splurge again... More

My partner treat me and two other friends with this fantastic dining experience. Food is amazing, service is excellent, wine selection is very good. Of course, it's expensive, but this is one of the best restaurants in the world after all!

We had a spectacular dinner at Tetsuya's as a group of four. The degustation with matching wines is pretty incredible with each dish having wonderful flavour. Even though the whole thing took 3 hours it only felt like an hour - good food and company will do that! Everything is great here (except the price, ha ha) - ambiance is... More

Extraordinarily slow; manager very defensive and not really apologetic. Waiters all nice and doing their best. Would have been better to admit that there was a major issue with the kitchen. Would never come back despite the good wine

Birthday dinner with my wife We're both gluten intolerant and she's pregnant. However, the restaurant managed to successfully tweak each of the degustation dishes Wonderful view of the Japanese garden and water feature along with fantastic service made from a fantastic experience Each degustation course was truly sublime. Beautifully prepared and truly delicious

Description
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.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
