We first visited Tetsuyas 5 years ago and we are thrilled that they have maintained the standard of excellence over a long period of time. It was again an incredible dining experience. Our favorite restaurant!!

I had just flown into Sydney from Melbourne and was now early afternoon. The day before I had dined at Vue de Monde for lunch, and Attica for dinner, two of Australia’s top 10 restaurants. For dinner on the following day I would be eating at Quay, another top 10. All three of these restaurants plus my lunch reservation today... More

I have waited 2 weeks before posting this review to make sure that I had time to digest the full experience that is eating a meal at Tetsuya's. Firstly as we all know this is a Sydney food institution and I was with a group of 12 in a private room and we had a great evening. The food was... More

The Tetsuya's degustation with wine pairing has to be the best fine dining experience I have had to date. The food was out of this world & the service impeccable. We had the best time. I will go again. If there is one issue, the room & decor was a little tired but once the incredible dishes started coming out,... More

We had a refined boys rugby trip. Hadn't eaten at Tetsuya's for over 10 years. I was impressed then and on Friday night again - Impressed beyonds words from the simple - bread and truffle butter to the sublime signature dishes - in particular the final chocolate desert. An experience in food excellence. The atmosphere is warm and has enough... More

Service was without fault. All courses were absolutely stunning. My standout favourite was the desert which looked like autumn leaves on a forest floor. The salmon was excellent. The quail divine. The chocolate desert was exquisite.

Tetsuya's has been a favourite in Sydney for many years. But only recently did I discover that some of their produce appeared to have been tainted with agricultural products and possible human carcinogens manufactured in China. There has been widespread publicity about 'fabricated' food made out of all sorts of chemicals such as paint, solvents and even pigmented dyes to... More

Our flight from Queenstown, NZ was delayed so we got in to Sydney late. Then, there was a storm so our luggage was delayed in getting to us. However, after an incredible chain of events we were seated at Tetsuya's. The meal absolutely took our minds off of our travel day. Our server was knowledgable and expertly guided us through...

I decided to take my partner to dinner at Tetsuya's after a grueling interview process. We loved the fact that the restaurant drew such a contrast with the city: on your way there, the traffic is heavy with cars, construction and pedestrians everywhere. When you drive in, a valet greets you to take your car and your coat. You walk... 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.
