Thai Surprise

Not a big fan of Thai food, I ended up visiting with some work colleagues for a lunch. We had the private room which was great for the group. We decided to go with the banquet which was their signature dishes. I absolutely loved it and the choice of wines and beer complement it well. No one walked... read more

worst Thai ive ever had. this is all hype and not about the food. my duck was totally dried out , chewy and disgusting. also over salted. the whole fried snapper ($42) was also so over salted and ordinary. our bill came to just under $200 and i was left feeling ripped off . ive had far better Thai take...

Longrain provides for a full Asian-style culinary experience and is well worth a visit. Admittedly, it is not cheap but well worth every single dollar. The waiting staff is friendly, attentive and helpful.

Four of us went for dinner. The food was nice especially the pork hock and the curries; however, each main was about $35 which I thought was expensive given it is communal dining (everyone sitting at long table). Rice was $4 per small bowl and a small plate of steamed greens was $16. Wait service was attentive but from ordering... More

I have rated this restaurant as excellent because the food is stunningly good. It's not often that every course is met with even more superlatives than the last but on our visit this restaurant achieved that. Isn't that what a good meal is all about? Well, not always and so to the caveats..... We visited on a Saturday evening and... More

I have been to this restaurant many times over the years and it never disappoints. The food is sublime and every mouthful an explosion of flavour. I miss the 'hip' cocktail bar and DJ upstairs which was a welcome opening to an evening, but never the less, still a fabulous place to dine and share amazing food with friends.

We ate here 2 nights ago - with about a 10 year gap from the last time, which had been a birthday dinner where we had wonderful memories of the food. So this time, another birthday dinner, where there had been an uber cool, hip bar is now a REALLY noisy dining section and this is where we were seated.... More

I went on a double date at Longrain Sydney last Sunday night. We had a reservation for 4 and were seated on a spacious semi provate table, which was nice. If you're looking for a pretty venue, this is not for you. Very dull and bland, I'm guessing so all your attention is on the food and drink? The menu... More

We dined here a few days ago and what a treat it was. The food was so good and the service excellent also. We all shared a lamb curry, an egg net sprout and pork dish, twice baked pork and a beef curry with plenty of rice. Honestly it was such a great meal we all went away raving about... More

I came here for my birthday with my family having heard about the eclectic food here. The maitre d was snobby, unprofessional, rude and unfriendly. To obtain a private table at Longrain you must have a large group therefore my family and I (group of 3) had to sit on a long communal table (felt like I was dining in... More
