The degustation menu at Tetsuya's is a truly memorable experience. Each dish is carefully prepared, combining wonderful flavours and textures with presentation that is, put simply, perfection. The marinated runs with egg yolk and the confit of ocean trout were my favourite courses, though the duck breast and spanner crab were very close runners up. The poached pear with leaves... More

Tetsuya has been consistently ranked in the top 10 Australian restaurants and has almost iconic status in the Asia-Pacific region. Therefore it was with great expectations that we dined here for the first time. Certainly the atmosphere and the excellent service put it in the 3* Michelin category. There is only one menu available, priced not unreasonably for a fine... More

I've had the degustation and wine pairing several times (both for business and with friends) and i can tell you it's truly an experience. Each dish is incredibly delicate and meticulously blended with the perfect accompanied wine. An absolute must whilst in Sydney.

I was very much looking forward to taking my partner here for his birthday. I had been here in 2010 and it was superb. We arrived by car, greeted by the valet, and had two people swing open the doors for us (royal treatment!). Our table was in a very quiet section of the restaurant overlooking the BEAUTIFUL Japanese inspired... More

The 9'course meal was a lot for me to eat at night , but every dish was so worth every calorie I ate. The salmon especially was the best and I loved it.

If TripAdvisor would let me use only one word, it would be perfection. Every thing from the service at the driveway to the end, was flawless. Amazing food, the best degustation I've had, with an amazing and inspired wine match. Stand out is tetsuyas trout. Service is warm and professional. Such a beautiful view when you're sitting next to the... More

Booked a table for 3 with less than 24hrs notice. We were very lucky to get a table. From arrival to departure, the service was impeccable. Our waiter was both professional and engaging. We enjoyed the 9 course degustation menu with matching Australian wines. The food was superb, tasty and beautifully presented. Our waiter was very informative about both the... More

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.
