Great service

Great restaurant, with a different spin on eating out, as you share all the dishes. The service was really good, enjoyed most of the dishes, they were quite varied, and it was fun to be able to try all the plates. There was plenty of food, so didn't come away hungry. Enjoyed the flavours they put... read more

After three attempts to dine at the Longrain in three years I at last made it. The seating style is a little unusual, with long tables that one shares with others or at the bar. My friend and I choose to ate at the bar which was very practical as we could watch the bar tender make cocktails and ask... More

Excellent Asian fusion restaurant, the lamb curry was perfectly flavoured and soft, the fried fish of the day was fresh and delicious, and all other meals were good to excellent depending. It is rare to find such a big restaurant maintaining high quality for such a long time.

Another restaurant that's been on my to-do list for a while. The good: Prompt service Decent portions The bad: 37$ for a Barramundi fish curry (cheap white fish) - that's a little steep, and although it was nice, it was no better than what you'd get elsewhere for a lot less. Communal seating: I'm not sure who actually likes to... More

We have dined here many times before and once again the food and service did not... More

All in all the service was faultless with regards to booking and seating. We were running late and they were kind enough to hold our booking. All seemed excellent and we were of to a good start. We were quickly informed that they had a heavy booking schedule and that we would need to be finished within the hour......we were... More

Went there with a friend on a week night, with certain expectation after reading the reviews. I must say I was a bit disappointed the dishes all have the same sticky and sweet flavour to them. One dish like that is fine but our pallets need a bit more variety. And it isn't very Thai, the dish I liked the... More

I was here for a wedding banquet, and the food was the tastiest food that i have ever had at a wedding. The ingredients was very fresh, they were cooked and served on the spot unlike some weddings where the food comes out luke warm and rubbery. The presentation was fabulous, and the flavour combinations were unique. The stand out... More

This restaurant has a chic and fun vibe without being stuffy. The tables are all family style seating with long wooden banquet style tables. The room is very open concept and the atmosphere is fun. It is a very popular spot so the wait can be long. We had to wait about 1 hour for a table, however they have... More

We were attracted by the Thai food menu online and made dinner reservations for our last night in Sydney. Dinner was great. We enjoyed a really nice bottle of wine as well. The spices and flavors were unique. We tried the steamed fish, the oysters and the green papaya salad. Plentiful for two. We walked back to the hotel with... More
