This restaurant and St. Andrew's Cathedral can be both really attractive for tourists. Here you can taste Japanese cuisine. You can order the divine ocean trout, amazing coral trout and good tuna sashimi. Many people come to try the delicious chocolate cake. If you like the fine wine, don't miss the opportunity to try it. The excellent service is always an important addition. Tetsuya’s can be characterized by the awesome atmosphere.

I read through the reviews for tetsuya's before my visit and I have to say most of them are true! In combination, atmosphere, foods, service and entertainment are not worth its price and its name. It could be me having an unlucky date, or maybe too much expectation, which leads to disappointment. For example: customer service, all you get is the waiter or waitress reading to you what is on the menu. What do I expect ? Simply a little more than just reading the name of the courses. What you could do is? Tells me what I will be expecting on this course or what is the ingredient ? Or why did chef has chosen This? Just something would be better than reading the names ! Will I expect this from $20 restaurant of course not! But Tetsuya's is branded so you can consider to reach the standard for fine dining. Overall, will I visit this restaurant again? Unfortunately no :(
I had been looking forward to this for many years and on this visit to Sydney, 6 of us made our way to the lovely establishment in Kent St. A miserable night weather wise, our welcome was warm and the staff who attended us were extremely pleasant and efficient. Our wine waiter was fantastic; so knowledgeable about the wines, as you would expect, and passionate in sharing it. We had the degustation of course, and the wines were truly magnificently matched for each course. 9 course, interesting combination of ingredients, and the signature confit of ocean trout was a magical dish. 2 of the party were non meat eaters and they had an extra seafood dish and a vegetable dish that they both enjoyed. I wish I had dropped the 2 meat dishes and joined them. Chocolate cake is the same everywhere unfortunately, and there are nicer desserts to be had. Thanks to our waiter for making the evening a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
