Location and contact

Tetsuya's serves a Degustation menu of Eight courses. The menu is unique and is 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. Tetsuya's does not accept or allow the service of BYO Wine, Beer or Spirits.

This was on my list of things to do, having last visited the old location 20 years ago. There were certainly parts of the menu that were really interesting and worth the price, but some courses are always going to be better than others. I...More

This restaurant was recommended by a friend who grew up in Sydney of my sister. Therefore, reservation was made well before our trip to Australia. You have to like seafood to appreciate this restaurant since there's no menu except by the choice of the main...More

Our second visit; it had been nearly 16 years since the first. The restaurant is lovely (though the worn carpet should be replaced in some areas). I agree with other diners: the smaller room is quieter, and we were right next to the garden so...More

Tetsuya’s is simply the best. The degustation menu is exquisite. There are three or four tiny seafood orientated courses and then a couple of gorgeous dessert courses. They are faultless. The wines are excellent. There is a large folder filled with wine, sake and other...More
