I booked Tetsuya's for my 40th birthday dinner after years of wanting to go there and I am so glad I did. The service was excellent. I enjoyed the very complete descriptions of all the food and especially the wines. I loved every single dish I ate and every single matching wine but there was one dish which was one... More

2 friends came from Melbourne to celebrate one of their birthdays. The 3 of us went to Tetsuya in Sydney with great excitement. The Doorman / Front of House at the entrance was rude, arrogant and pretentious. He had trouble finding the booking and once found, called my friend by a wrong name. There was no smile, no friendly greetings,... More

My love of Japanese food was not disappointed here. But you need to understand the whole experience as whilst its not cheap, the degustation menu is an experience you will not forget. Sydney also has a love affair with Japanese cuisine (evident by the number of sushi bars and japanese restaurants) and Tetsuya's is up there with the very best.

After waiting 15 years to get here, I knew my original expectations would not be met but I was unprepared for very indifferent service. This is after all, a special treat. The food was blandly presented by current standards but mostly tasted wonderful - the toothfish and quail spoilt by oversalting; 2 granita desserts not enjoyed in freezing airconditioning, but...

One night in Sydney, booking available, have to try Tetsuya's. Entry is magnificent and service impeccable from the greeting at the door, all of the wait staff you encounter through the evening and up to the farewell. Food styling is everything you expect from a tasting menu. But the food itself - thoughtfully prepared but I have to say with... More

I was invited by friends to have dinner at Tetsuya's on November 5th, 2016. It was a wonderful experience. Absolutely one of the best fine dining places in Sydney. The restaurant was spacious and the private rooms were elegant. The service impeccable and the series of food served were magnificent. There were 4 of us and we had a fabulous... More

I've been left wondering what all the hype is about. While the service and setting was exceptional the dishes I found were rich and over complicated. The flavour of the sauces and additives over powered rather than complemented and enhanced the flavour of the core ingredient particularly with the seafood. I am no chef or cuisine connoisseur however I am... 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

Neighbourhood 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.
