The menu had a wide range of food, starting with seafood, moving on to meat, then ending with sweets. I think the thing that wowed me most about Tetsuya’s was that considering the range of food, everything was cooked perfectly.
This is Tetsuya’s signature dish and it was a close second to my favorite thing on the menu. The seasoning on this looked like it would be kind of a coarse, crunchy salty seasoning but it was actually super fine and almost velvety. It’s an absolute winner.
I absolutely love spatchcock. And this was just wow.
This was my absolute favorite thing on the menu. The venison was so juicy and tender.
Yes, that’s green. I know it looks/sounds weird, but it was really good. Tetsuya isn’t horsing around with this first dessert.
Would I go back? Definitely if someone else was paying and it was on a night when I wasn’t working the next day and could go through 11 wine pairings. Yes if I had a family member in from out of town who really wanted to go. Not necessarily if it was for a special occasion with some of my friends.
One of the most talked about elements of this restaurant is that, according to the Sydney Good Food Guide, it’s “only” two hats. Of the two hatted restaurants I’ve been to, this one is the best from a food standpoint. But considering the price and the very grown up atmosphere, I wouldn’t rank it my #1 Sydney restaurant. However, if you’re looking for an uber classy dining experience, Tetsuya’s is a great choice.
