The food at Longrain was lovely. We had the banqueting menu, the betel leaves were particularly special as was the lamb curry. What would otherwise have been a very special meal was let down by lacklustre service. Staff were friendly enough but dishes were plonked down without ceremony or explanation (which would have been good as we were new to... More

Had my first visit to Longrain and wasn't disappointed. Went with a group of 5 people and the table was a generous size for this number of people- didn't feel cramped at all. The restaurant is in an old warehouse, giving it a great atmosphere. We had the $65 banquet and the dishes were very generous in size- definitely didn't... More

Just wow! Came in for dinner on Saturday and loved it so much we decided to return the next night. Service was warm, friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The food is SUBLIME. Must try the pork hock and the velvety massoman curry. We definitely came with lofty expectations, but boy were they exceeded. A go to restaurant for any... More

Unusual food for Sydney. Even more unusual for Surrey Hills. Try one of the betel leaf dishes. Perhaps order it with oysters. The taste is not exactly Madagascar, but it is very, very good. The comfit octopus is delicious and not too much food for a course. If they have the eggplant, get it. The barbeque does it pleasantly and... More

I really love this place. Atmosphere, food, drinks - the works. Pricing is quite fair considering it is an up market restaurant. One of my favourite restaurants in Australia.

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.
