A group of 4 of us went to Longrain on a Saturday night the wait was almost 2 hours but it was peak time and raining so no one was moving quickly. We set up in the bar downstairs and managed to eat a number of the entrees from the main restaurant as bar snacks. When we eventually did get... More

Go for the salt and pepper tofu and beatle leaves. We dine here at least once every three weeks. You won't have to wait for a table if you go during a week day. Weekends are busy and you can edit up to 2 hours.

We had been to Longrain before, enjoyed the food so were looking forward to returning. We knew that the restaurant didn't take bookings and expected to wait. However, there were plenty of spare seats when we arrived at 9 pm and were told that the wait was up to an hour and 15 minutes. We were sent downstairs to the... More

Service to ruin your night out. We chose Longrain for an early dinner before heading to the Leonard Cohen concert. On arriving at the restaurant around 6:15 pm, I asked the maitre de for a table for 4, explained we had a show to go to at the Ent centre, and would we be able to be served etc and... More

Wednesday evening, drinks down in the Bunker bar beforehand found friendly and attentive staff. Upon arriving upstairs and being seated at the bar by the host, we had chosen all our meals and a bottle of wine before a waiter graced us with their presence. By the end of the night we were still unsure who exactly was suppose to... More

Went as we were recommended by our concierge. We arrived early so no problem getting a table. Waitress very friendly and helpful. Food was excellent. Liked the ambiance with shared tables. Not normally a dessert person but we ordered two. Both fantastic. Not as expensive as I thought it would be. Would go back.

Sunday evening - fairly quiet in the lovely bar downstairs and we indulged in some fabulous "sticky" drinks such as the Camp B..ch and another one with chili and raspberry (blissful sigh). Then upstairs to some of the best food I have eaten in Sydney, The caramelised pork hock is truly sinful. It is impossible to stop (and my Mum... More

We visited this restaurant after a memorable experience 2 weeks earlier in the restaurant with the same name in Melbourne. Our expectations were extremely high but we were bitterly disappointed because there were issues with the service & the cooking of the food. There was only 5 of us & therefore we couldn’t reserve a table but we got there... More

Amazing food, the best pork hoc ever, fantastic and friendly service. Can get very loud due to the combination of music and seating arrangements.

Living in Melbourne and been dying to try Longrain in our own city for ages, we decided to give it a go in Sydney. It was FANTASTIC. Every dish was beautiful, would certainly be back!
