“clean clear flavours”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Professional staff, wonderful space. A sydney classic. Deserts are worth saving some room for. Tip - if there are 3 or 4 of you dont sit at the big communal tables - they are too wide to talk across without yelling. Ask for the tables in the old bar area on the left.

“Go to Cockle Bay”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013 via mobile

Food took a long time, this is a big problem as we had only a 2 hour allocated time limit. Food and service was average considering pricing was of high end. I don't mind paying high end prices, but I expect high end food and service.

“Best food ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

This restaurant is by far my favourite restaurant in the world. I have dined here with work colleagues multiple times, my teenage son, and by myself; and every visit has been a memorable one. I cannot speak highly enough of this place. I tell everyone I can that they need to try Longrain, and everyone I know who has, comes back to me with the same reaction, they LOVED it. I always look forward to my next visit to Sydney (I live in Perth)
Red Dragon cocktail is sensational!! Egg Net Salad is addictive.

“Excellent!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

Loved this restaurant. Started our evening in the cool cocktail lounge downstairs, drinks were delicious and service attentive. Dinner was amazing, started with the duck and rice cake entree which was a mouthwatering medley of flavours and textures. Had the caramelised pork hock and sour orange curry for mains, both were exemplary and delicious fusions of flavour. Shared a 'layered Longrain special' for dessert - slightly disappointed by this. It was a mix of several desserts together but they were all in the same glass meaning it was hard to get individual tastes of each. Still very tasty though. Will definitely be back, highly recommend!

“yum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Have been wanting to visit this place for a while... but it is a bit pricey.

Eventually went - and can't complain. Loved it. Food was delicious and very interesting... nothing traditional here... everything is unique and has it's own twist.

Lot's of delicious cold dishes too.

The cocktails are also very worth the visit.
