Description: 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.

“Amazingly good food - curry, pork, veggies, everything!”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

A colleague brought me to this one. Not on the main tourist neighborhoods such as The Rock, but boy was this good! Had the betel leaf with pomelo as starters, then shared coconut tumeric curry and caramelised pork hock and some veggies. The pork was so tender, so sweet at the same time, it was like a dessert :-) The curry was so well-balanced, the taste melted on the tongue. The athmosphere was really nice, fresh Tiger beer from the draft - what more can you ask for? Highly recommended, to have great fusion Asian food.

“Recommended and proved a great night”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

My 17 year old daughter dined here on a 4 day stay in Melbourne. It came highly recommended and didn't disappoint. I knew we needed to go early so arrived 6.45, we had a drink in the bar first before our table was ready.
Had a really helpful waiter, thanks to him we made great choices and every single dish was beautiful. The restaurant atmosphere was lively but you could still have a conversation .

“A real favourite!”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

What started out as a quick drink downstairs turned into a wonderful evening of great food and wine. The downstairs bar has a relaxed and understated vibe and just invited us to stay a little longer and have something to eat upstairs.

We went "off-piste" from our normal favourites and chose Salt and Pepper Tofu, Pork Hock and Crispy Fried Barramundi. We had friends and shared the meal. The Tofu raised eyes when we ordered and became the favourite dish when tasted.
