Start with the Betel leaves, and then share some pork hock, beef shin, a curry and if it's on the menu, the delicious fresh Barramundi. A few signature cocktails should also not be missed. And try and leave some room for the dessert platter... especially the duck egg palm sugar custard. If you're on the go and are looking for... More

Great restaurant but be prepared to pay for it. With a cool bar to start off at cocktails are at a price that would knock you over at the knees. The hip cool vibrant corporate crowd call this venue their local drinking hole and rightly so - it is trendy, modern and kool. Reservations aren't so as important as the... More

Had dinner there last night. The food was good (although the menu was very small!) and service attentive, but certainly not worth the price. And this is coming from someone who regularly dines out and spends quite a bit each time. You would be better off trying some of Sydney's other better Thai restaurants, leave this one to the people... More

Food was very good. Service was good. However, the whole experience was ruined by: paying very high prices for comparable Thai food available in Sydney for less than half the price this place charges. Noisy despite the place only being a quarter full; so noisy that we could barely hear each other across the table. Finally, as there in no... More

I've never had a bad experience at Longrain. Service is always friendly and efficient, cocktails are sublime and the food, oh my goodness, the food! The filled egg net has to be one of the tastiest dishes I've ever had. It's so fresh and zingy and not heavy, I feel like I could happily eat that dish all night and... More

We had a cocktail at the bar while we waited for our table to get ready. It took only 5 minutes or less. The service was excellent, the waiter suggested us a great bottle of wine, and he was really nice. The food is interesting, and the menu has a great variety. Overall it's definitely on my list of favourite... More

Had a cocktail downstairs in the Bunker bar while we waited for our table - they had some interesting options on the cocktail menu too. We were seated fairly quickly on a busy Saturday night, and ordered drinks and half a dozen plates to share. The meals arrived quickly, and everything they put on our table was just sublime. The...
