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.

“Meal to die for....”
Reviewed 13 August 2012

Must do bucket list ..This was worth every cent, the attention to detail with the food was just amazing and the tastes outstanding. It has first class service with the floor staff knowing all about the food and wine. I could not fault the meal, service and restruant itself, I can see why it is an award winning restruant. The out world building also adds to all the experinece of the dining and the lovely garden it looks into. Well done to all at Tetsuya's.

“Pricey but a work of art”
Reviewed 12 August 2012

A word of warning. $500 for 2 people for a dinner is not for the weak-hearted.

If we can pass that, then, Tetsuya is a marvelous restaurant. I had degustation menu and each dishes is a work of art. The staff is very detail and very knowledgeable in explaining each dish. It's a place that one has to experience to understand.

I have no hesitation in recommending Tetsuya. That is, if you ever get a spot (my friend booked 3 months earlier!)

“The care shows”
Reviewed 8 August 2012

Degustation menu and wine pairings were excellent as was the service. For a special indulgent evening you can't beat it. The restaurant itself is very tranquil and the tables have plenty of room between them. For a big spoil, book yourself a table by the window overlooking the Japanese garden and enjoy.
