Sydney’s Finest Food at Tetsuya’s Restaurant

Tetsuya’s Restaurant is regularly named one of the best in the world, so it’s safe to say that it probably offers the finest meal you’ll taste in Sydney.

Of course, this sort of quality doesn’t come cheaply. But if you’ve got a few hundred dollars to spare, a night out at Tetsuya’s is worth your while.

Tetsuya’s is the brainchild of Tetsuya Wakuda. He left his native Japan at the age of 22, lured to Australia by his love of koalas. He soon met acclaimed Sydney chef Tony Bilson, who taught him the French techniques that influence his culinary creations today.

Tetsuya’s famous degustation menu offers ten courses that are always changing. The dishes complement one another perfectly, from hors d’oevres to signature mains and mouthwatering desserts. Tasty treats on the current menu include roasted duck breast with ginger and lime, ravioli of octopus, rice, and tomato, roasted scampi with herb and citrus oil, and strawberry and watermelon with balsamic icecream. Yum! Tetsuya’s also offers a brilliant wine list, with wines handpicked to match each course.

Tetsuya’s stunning heritage-listed site offers private dining rooms for groups and two main dining rooms overlooking manicured Japanese gardens.

It might leave a big hole in your bank balance, but Tetsuya’s offers a culinary experience you won’t forget.
