Review of Tetsuya’s


Tetsuya’s is one of Sydney’s most famous restaurants and Chef Tetsuya Wakudu is internationally renowned as one of Australia’s best chefs.

Tetsuya’s began in 1989 in a small suburban restaurant in Rozelle, but moved to its current refurbished heritage-listed site in the city in 2000.

Tetsuya Wakudu’s food is influenced by his Japanese heritage and his love of classic French techniques.  It is a style uniquely his own and has earned him worldwide recognition.

The decor at Tetsuya’s is minimalist and centered around a tranquil Japanese garden.  Artifacts from Tetsuya’s own collection adorn the rooms, but the food is without doubt the true star.  The service is precisely what you would expect for a restaurant of this caliber.

A 10 course degustation menu with a heavy seafood focus is offered, but they are happy to cater to dietary requirements.  You will be pleased the dishes are small, so you should have no trouble finishing your 10 courses!  The dishes are beautifully presented with exquisite flavours and the signature Confit of Ocean Trout is outstanding.


The lengthy wine list is exceptional and is offered by the glass and the bottle, or you may choose to have wines matched to your courses.

Dining at Tetsuya’s is an experience to remember, but certainly best suited to the adventurous foodie.

Oh and if you ever find yourself in Singapore we suggest you secure a reservation at Tetsuya’s restaurant Waku Ghin.  We can tell you first hand it is an experience to remember.  One word.  Wow.
