Dinner with my wife on a thursday evening. Food outstanding. Matched Aussie wines worked well. Staff polished and welcoming. Setting is excellent. Some great art around the place. Certainly not trading on reputation... after operating for around 30 years you could almost forgive them for a little complacency but there is not a trace of it. This is what's possible... More

We came for a special occasion as most people were also there for an anniversary or birthday. And why not? This restaurant is perfect to celebrate in! Food is perfect, service isn't just service, it's warm welcoming and professional. Not intrusive though. We give this 100%. Can not be faulted. Be aware though of costs before you go as the... More

The meal, a degustation menu, was excellent from start to finish. We especially enjoyed the wine pairings featuring Australian wines, and the sommelier was very knowledgable and engaging. The service was wonderful.

If you have the time, this place is a must try. From the moment you walk into the secluded Japanese style restaurant off the hussle and bussle street, the staff make you feel so welcome. All of them so friendly and full of conversation. The food was simply the best taster menu I have had in a long time. Each... More

My sister and I had an amazing time at Tetsuya's, the degustation menu was completely changed since last time I was there six months ago (apart from the signature dish). I particularly enjoyed the tuna dish and the warm service we received from our waiter. Highly recommended, worth saving up for.

Beware of this place. We made a confirmed booking through Trip Advisor. We arrived on time and after making our way there they said they were fully booked. Would not visit again.

We had 9 courses of food matched with appropriate wine. Our group of 10 had a room to ourselves. The presentation and description of each food item and accompanying wine was well done. A bit pricy.

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.
