We had a dinner at Tetsuya's to celebrate my father's birthday. The food and the service were impeccable! One of the best dining experience we have had! The dining rooms look out to the private Japanese garden, beautiful and tranquil. The texture and flavors of the food were perfect. The valet parking was the best we had experienced. As soon...

The food here's impressive. Reserve at least a week in advance online, preferably, to be sure of getting a place? The restaurant is an oasis of peace and serenity in a refurbished mansion in the middle of the city. It's so understated I actually walked past it at first? XD The staff are amazingly attentive to your needs as soon... More

I've just checked Tetsuya's off my bucket list. Was it good? Yes. Am I planning my next visit? No. The small room we were in overlooking the Japanese garden felt intimate. There were other couples, groups of friends, and a family birthday. Service was excellent - attentive, knowledgeable and not snooty in the slightest. The one tiny hiccup was when... More

I had booked for a special occasion. I had been a few times before with larger parties in private rooms. I thought I had an online booking for 4 in a private room but arrived only to find that we were on a table in the main restaurant - a bit disappointing but the maitre-de went to some length explaining...

After too many years of procrastination, my wife and I finally made our way to Tetsuya’s for dinner. Given that Tetsuya has little to do with the restaurant now days (focusing on other projects) I was worried that the food would no longer live up to the hype. I need not have worried at all – new Executive Chef Kevin... More

Obviously it's a fine dining place to go when there is a special occasion or you need a treat to yourself. Space is good but not as good as traditional Japanese fine dining with less people and normally super quiet. All tables have garden views. But some tables are quite close to each other sometimes you can overhear the entire... More

Came here for my sisters birthday. The moment we arrived, we were greeted by the friendly staff who were very attentive and helpful. They offered to take our coats and place them away for us. We were walked to our table and looked after by our waiter Martin. We got the degustation menu and it is definitely something you must... More

Well heeled clientele abounds in a restaurant that relies more on the established reputation of its head chef (who was in attendance tonight) than hype. Japanese/French fusion done well, with some outstanding dishes such as the kingfish and optional oysters. Appetisers and desserts are where the menu really shine although the 'meat' (non fish) section exceeded expectations. Excellent staff. Wine... More

I have been eating at Tets since his old days in Rozelle and it is always exceptional.The signature ocean trout has been served with various garnishes over the years,some better than others ,but always a knockout dish (I once ate with 2 opera singers there and they sounded as if they were warming up---mmmmm,mmmmm as they tasted ).The present premises...

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.
