Best restaurant I have ever been to hands down. The service was absolutely incredible- the staff were friendly, helpful and very knowledgable. Small rooms created an intimate but vibrant atmosphere. I had the vegetarian menu with wine pairing and was thoroughly impressed. Flavours and presentation were outstanding. The courses were well portioned leaving you satisfied but not overly full as...

Hard to put into words that a unique and extraordinary dining experience this was. Standout dishes of the degustation were the famous ocean trout, sashimi, duck, lamb and my delicious chocolate birthday cake. Don't miss this dining experience...you won't regret it!

This place is amazing and somewhere you should go once in your life. Yes it's expensive but I would rather one meal at Tetsuyas than 20 local Chinese meals. The food is art and the tastes unique. It's amazing and I'd like to say more than a once in a life time experience. Hopefully!

Tetsuya's has taken the concept of omikase dining to a new level. You come in, are seated, and your big choices are (a) whether to add a raw oyster course to the prix fixe menu, and whether to add wine pairings. The menu is set (though if you have an allergy, they can likely accommodate that). Here are the highlights:... More

Outrageous on multiple levels. Outrageous food with even more outrageous prices. Dining room is stark. No flowers, no candles, only the Japanese garden outside the window. Hated the stark lighting above my head. Everyone eats the same thing, so no way to get by any cheaper. But the food was great, and so was the service. The problem is the... More

It is impeccable! The attention to detail, the waitstaff, the food - there is not one thing I could fault. You pay a lot, but it is definitely worth it. I would recommend this place to anyone, you will not be disappointed!

we have been going there for birthdays and special occasions for at least 10 years. This visit we all felt that it had changed from the great food and service to just good that you can find in lots of other restaurants in Sydney which is a pity.We did enjoy the food especially the signature dish but felt that it...

I thoroughly recommend the degustation experience particularly with a wine match. The service from every staff member was courteous and relaxed. I have not enjoyed a meal as much since the last time we visited and would highly recommend it

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.
