    The green curry is to die for!

    Betel leaf. Salt & pepper tofu.

    Pork knuckle all the way! The bar down stairs is really cool with a dj playing cool grooves

    Crispy market fish is a MUST HAVE. Don't be put off by the "whole fish" thing: the best bits come separated as the best fish sticks you'll ever have.

    Great ambiance, dusky lighting, high ceiling and spacious. Friendly service. Dishes are on the overly sweet side adjusted for local taste, a little let down, they could have been that much better!

    Cocktails are fantastic. Dining is good if you don't mind communal seating. Tho' there is an option to get individual tables. The green and red curry are splendid dishes.

    Nice spot, quality food and extremely flavoursome. The asian-inspired pork belly is to die for

    Pete Iannetta · October 26, 2014
  • Stephanie S.

    Salt and pepper tofu with lime, soy and mirin dressing was the standout dish to me!

    Fancy Thai cuisine to be enjoyed at communal tables. Earthy yet modern atmosphere

    Mel Mc · March 14, 2014

    Cocktails look good an Eagle Rare oldfashioned just leave out the soda.

    Chris Telford · February 26, 2014

    The Banana Crumble was probably the best (sexiest) desert I have had in a long time. We ordered a second one...

    Max Hegerman · February 11, 2014
  • Buzz U.

    Get the pork hock. Then never eat again. Ever.

    Buzz Usborne · November 2, 2013
  • Claire B.

    The caramelised pork, prawn & sour pineapple entree is RIDICULOUS. I pretty much could've just had two (or three, or ten) plates of that & been EXTREMELY happy. Fantastic staff, epic cocktails.

    Busy and always buzzing, Longrain’s ad-land fashion crowd enjoy live DJs Tuesday-Saturday

    Found a cockroach swimming in my water and when we pointed it out to the staffer they told us that sometimes when they set up the table small cockroaches crawl around the table. Not reassuring!

  • MikiRei

    Love all the cocktails here. Red dragon and Gin Sin are must tries

    MikiRei · June 8, 2013

    Oh.My.Goodness. The taro cake, coconut and peanut ice cream. Makes you weak at the knees

    jungle curry, ask for the original hot one..

    Kent Hughes · April 9, 2013
  • Ryan S.

    Start out with some drinks downstairs at the bar. Green Curry and Pork Hock were winners, but you can't go wrong with the food.

    Ryan Sarver · March 30, 2013
  • Simon H.

    The best Thai in the East. Try the $16's an orgasm in the mouth. Jungle curry is awesome too

    Simon Heyes · January 10, 2013
  • Kelly B.

    Light & airy space. Food is sensational, egg net is a must. Cocktails created by experienced barmen.

    Kelly Bassett · January 1, 2013
  • Vivek K.

    Avoid the papaya salad if you think it's going to be really spicy and sour like the real thing...

    Vivek Krishan · October 27, 2012

    Coconut sorbet. Mmmmm... Cacao and Ginger as well

    阿欣 · May 25, 2012

    Restaurant is still fab but the bar staff downstairs are slack, unprofessional and are not of the same calibre as the staff upstairs.

    Michael Morrison · May 15, 2012

    Dragon blood for an Awsome spicey vodka cocktail!

    Nik Walker · May 9, 2012

    Caramelised pork hock is a standout dish! Egg net is also a must order. Wash all that down with a ping pong or red dragon cocktail! Cocktails are unique :)

    Vanessa Goh · February 25, 2012
  • Amy R.

    Just the best Singapore Sling in the world. Food is pretty awesome too!

    In October, Sydney’s coolest bars mix it up for you – with a creative Chambord cocktail and matching canapé for just $20 as part of the CSIFF 2011.

  • @JaumePrimero

    The interior is very chic. Had a hard time staring at my food, because the atmosphere is so incredible. Dining is communal and the food is meant to be shared, you won't be disappointed.

    Great cocktail list. Stick drinks come with a game. Read more

    Expect slow bad service and overpriced food that is over seasoned. Overpriced and disappointing. Will not be back. Hat restaurant my ass.

    Don’t miss any of the merrily named in house cockatils such as the Ping Pong, Camp Bitch, Bloody Longrain or the famed Caiprioska. Trust us, you want to be slightly drunk when the bill arrives.

  • Tara A.

    Reviews about pork hock are spot on. Wow.

    Tara Airlie · April 11, 2011
  • Summer R.

    Dr Loosen Dry Riesling. Definitely the best match for the food here...

    Summer Riesling · January 30, 2011
  • Bec Z.

    For entree, you can't go past the betel leaves with smoked trout, and the caramelised pork hock is a standout main. Egg net was a little disappointing; I was expecting a little more flavour and egg.

    Bec Z · January 30, 2011
  • Jenny L.

    Definitely the egg net! And try and grab a group as the portions are quite generous.

    Jenny L · January 18, 2011
  • Tiffany S.

    i love it. try their caramelised pork hock and grilled octopus with pork belly.

    Tiffany Sis · January 17, 2011
  • Matt C.

    Get the beef curry. You ain't never had beef like this.

    Matt Carter · January 9, 2011
  • Lauren S.

    Duck salad is a must!
