Short biography
Tetsuya Wakuda is a Japanese-born Australian chef based in Sydney, Australia. He is widely recognised as one of Australia’s most original, creative and successful culinary talents.[citation needed] His eponymous restaurant, Tetsuya's, is celebrated both nationally and internationally. Tetsuya’s occupies a large, heritage-listed property on Kent St in Sydney’s CBD that once housed the former Suntory Restaurant. The restaurant seats comfortably up to 140 people, including private dining rooms and two larger main dining rooms overlooking a Japanese garden.

Many of the modern sculpture works displayed around the restaurant were made by his friend, the late sculptor Akio Makigawa. The ceramics used for plating some dishes, meanwhile, are made personally for Wakuda and the restaurant by another friend Mitsuo Shoji. Tetsuya’s continues to garner top awards and is internationally recognised as a leading Australian restaurant. The restaurant still maintains its Good Food Guide Three Hat status and was named Restaurant of the Year (again) in the 2008 edition. Tetsuya’s has also ranked within the top five “world’s best restaurants” as nominated by UK publication Restaurant magazine in 2005, 2006 and 2007. Tetsuya has won an award every year from 1992-2009.
