    Tetsuya: Want to taste one the best? Eat on Tetsuya

    by happy_journey Updated Jul 26, 2008

    Tetsuya restaurant

    It offers one of Sydney’s most remarkable wine lists, and will match the dishes with wine available by the glass

    cuisine is unique, based on the Japanese philosophy of natural seasonal flavours, enhanced by classic French technique.

    restaurant has garnered numerous global accolades including 2004, 2005 and 2006 mentions in the Restaurant (Magazine) Top 50. It was also awarded the highest rating in the Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide 2007 (Three Chef's Hats), Restaurant of the Year and Best Fine Dining at the Restaurant & Catering Association Awards 2005. In 2007 Restaurant awarded fifth place on its list of the world's top 50 restaurants It has been named Good Food Guide Restaurant of the Year for 2007.

    This is a fine dine-in and ethnic restaurant

    Favorite Dish: There are a lot of foods to choose form because it is neither Japanese, French or Australian, rather a haute cuisine combination of all three, prepared with refined taste. The only dining option is a degustation menu ($175 each), and the waiters description of any particular dish (there are ten!) takes longer to hear, in most cases, than it does to eat. Refined food at a rarefied price.

    This place is out of this world.. Definitely the place to go for a really special occassion or if you want a truly unique dining experience. It is very pricey but I'd say it's worth every cent. The food is so good it's indescribable - the whole time you're chewing away you don't want the taste to end!! The best!! :)

    TETSUYA'S: Japanese/ French/ Modern Australian

    by amyhenderson Written Aug 2, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tetsuya's used to be located in hard-to-find Rozelle, only frequented by people in the know. Now, its in the city on Kent Street, with a slightly larger dining area.

    Apart from the mouth-watering meals served here, a very unique feature is that there is a set meal of 7 courses for each diner.

    Each course is small, yet an absolute masterpiece, in presentation and taste. Japanese/Australian Head Chef Tetsuya Wakuda says he likes to use cooking influences from many different cultures. Most evident are Japanese, French & Modern Australian.

    This is the perfect kind of place to take a very special (and lucky!) someone, especially due to the price. However, it looks like a lot of business deals go down here too.

    Fully licensed

    Favorite Dish: The dinner started with a bracket of five small dishes. These were a tea and tomato soup, scallops served on the shell and garnished with lemongrass, a dish of octopus served on potato and garnished with wakame, scampi with deep fried leeks and a crab sushi.

    These dishes were followed by the famous confit of Tasmanian Ocean Trout (sometimes he does it with Atlantic Salmon) cooked in extra virgin olive oil and garnished with a vibrant green parsley oil.

    Next we had veal served in a large white bowl with porcini mushrooms and a rich, intense broth accompanied by blanched potatoes.
    A light broth accompanied spatchcock with fresh soy beans and spring onions, peas and bok choy.

    We finished the meal with two desserts. An apple sorbet sitting on top of an apple jelly then a ginger creme brulee.

    Tetsuyas - 5 stars,...

    by vandi Written Aug 26, 2002

    Tetsuyas - 5 stars, expensive.
    Darling Mills - 3 stars
    Tetsuyas can only be booked 6 weeks in advance, they will not take earlier or later bookings. Most international entertainers dine here. It's wonderful.

    Favorite Dish: Tetsuyas - definitely definitely definitely the oysters ! Huge oysters with an exquisite sauce ontop, he brought out 2 oysters per person and we had to special order more ! It's a set menu, french/asian, but you have to experience it at least once. Lots of little dishes keep coming out, you will be so full by the end guys, don't fill up on the bread when you see the small dishes. You have been warned !
