I’m always super excited about sharing hot restaurant tips.
Last night I had dinner with friends, at a sensational spot in Surry Hills, called Longrain.
The conceptual layout at Longrain has a northern European feel. The space is light and airy, but finished with a modest and determined décor.
Longrain is driven by aesthetics; this is a dining experience that is all about stimulating the senses, with dishes designed to share (which I always love).
The cuisine is a fuse between Thai and southern Chinese.
Longrain was impressive from start to finish; from pre-dinner, freshly shaken, cocktails, at the candle lit bar, to impeccably presented, scrumptious, desserts. It was a beautiful story.
Yes, caught up in sensual stimulation, romanticised, and, as with any romance, perhaps becoming prone to overlook flaws. Therefore I will make it a point to express my disappointment in the waiting staff, which lacked any sense of engagement and charm.
Was that a little harsh?
