My family have been going to tetsuya's since opening his original restaurant in Balmain, You are treated as Royalty as soon as you enter those front doors, The waiters are very friendly and professional and nothing go's un noticed. We love it so much that we have the degustation as the food is so nice you want to try everything.

This was our big blowout of the holiday and a very expensive night out. I loved all the courses but was most impressed with the effort made for my wife who is a veggie. She received an equally impressive degustation menu. We opted for the wine pairing which was fantastic. The waiter was so knowledgeable and paired the wines perfectly.... More

My first visit. I cannot praise too highly. Magnificent experience! Degustación with excellent pairing. An oasis with Zen Garden in the CBD.

The night after a most disappointing meal at Quay which I posted about last week, we ate at Tetsuya's in Sydney. Apart from the view which was undeniably special and better at Quay, Tetsuya's food was at a different level and far superior. Every dish was different and very good in its own way. We had a couple of minor... More

Sydney is pretty lucky to have tetsuya in its doorsteps. It was an amazing degustation menu. Make sure you like raw fish because there's plenty of it. The whole experience was outstanding and I can eat the truffle butter all day everyday. It certainly delivered on service and cuisine. A must for all the foodies.

My husband and I visited Tetsuya's for lunch. The service is exemplary. From our initial greeting until we left, the staff made us feel like the only customers in the restuarant. The staff knew the menu intimately and were able to provide detailed information on each dish and accompanying beverage. The atmosphere was lovely and we had an outlook over... More

Dined here for a friends birthday, and was again blown away by the experience! The staff are so lovely and welcoming and very helpful when it came to any questions about the menu or the wine. We had a lovely table by the window in front of the pond, absolutely stunning. Can't recommend this beautiful place enough!

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

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.
