Longrain has been around since around 2000 and I used to go quite regularly. No particular reason, but hadn't been for 5 or more years. That's my problem as we went with friends before a show and had an excellent couple of hours early on...More

The atmosphere and restaurant layout is fantastic and the service from our waiter was fun, friendly and second to none. The food was great and incredibly filling, we opted against the banquet and were happy we did as we ordered far less and couldn't eat...More

Really liked the atmosphere, and the staff were attentive and friendly. Food came out in a timely manner and everything tasted great! Loved the eggnet especially, and the pork hock too.

Great service and food - but the food was possibly a bit on the rich side. The waiters were kind, and happy to help with dietary requirements. They kept giving us sparkling water, which wasn't even expensive! Overall a great night.

Longrain Sydney is located at 85 Commonwealth St in Surry Hills. Inspired by the communal eating philosophy of the Asian table, our menu is made up of dishes created for sharing. Longrain's menu has evolved from Martin Boetz's original Longrain vision, bringing South East Asian influences to carefully sourced ingredients with fresh, zingy flavours. His vibrant menu is carefully balanced with wines and cocktails chosen by restaurateur Sam Christie. Our long, shared tables encourage the spirit of eating together, so you can try each dish as part of a full tasting experience, just as it was intended (limited reservations available). Book one of our individual tables for parties between 6 - 10 people; or Private Dining Room for 12-18 guests.
