Longrain is a contemporary restaurant, bar, Asian produce store and canteen. It is uniquely located within an expansive, 110 year-old converted warehouse. A hip, yet welcoming atmosphere is combined with warm service, original cocktails, an inspired wine list and award-winning, modern Thai/Asian food, created by executive chef, Martin Boetz.
Positioned within the heart of the artistic design quarter of inner-city Surry Hills, Longrain is only minutes from Sydneyâ€™s CBD and eastern suburbs - making it both a popular lunch and dinner destination for locals and visitors alike. Industrial features of the original warehouse co-exist with modern design additions, such as a signature wall of woven-wood panelling and a contemporary selection of Australian art and photography by celebrated artists such as Christopher Hodges.
Longrain Sydney's main entrance flows into two dining spaces, to the right, the room is divided by three enormous wooden communal dining tables. These are deliberately designed to encourage traditional â€˜Asian-styleâ€™ banquet dining. And to the left, a new space has been added to the mix which is located in what was the original cocktail bar. The new dining area is an elegant room with pod-like booths and individual round tables that can be booked for groups of 6-9 people - a Longrain Sydney first.
Longrain Sydney's Private Dining Room is hidden behind a slatted wooden wall, working as an annex to the main dining room. It comfortably seats anywhere between 12 to 18 guests, the private dining room can be booked in advance for a private celebration or event.
Longrain's Executive chef Martin Boetz creates a set menu that includes a balanced selection of dishes , suitable for any event. An example of the banquet menus are available under menus on the website. The banquet menus can also be matched with wine chosen by Longrain's sommelier or guests may choose to select wine from the comprehensive wine list. Function enquiries are welcome.
Executive chef Martin Boetzâ€™s menu is a mouth-watering blend of Thai and Chinese influences with dishes that are designed to be shared. A wine list is carefully created by fellow co-owner and award-winning sommelier Sam Christie to perfectly balance the menuâ€™s combination of hot, sour, salty and sweet flavours.
