Review of Long Chim
Long Chim, translates to ‘to come sample and taste’ and is Chef David Thompson’s (ex Sailors Thai) latest Sydney venture. (David Thompson left Sydney in 2000 to open the Michelin star-winning Nahm in London.) Long Chim in Sydney follows his restaurants of the same name in Singapore and Perth.
As with his Singapore and Perth restaurants, the interior is dark with an industrial feel with exposed bricks, polished concrete floors, rustic timbers and quirky Bangkok art pieces featuring on the walls.
The rather extensive menu pays homage to Thai street food and we suggest you pay attention to the chili markers if you’re averse to heat! On the menu you’ll find a selection of noodle dishes, curries, soups, stir fry, grilled meats and salads.
In terms of the drinks, they’re offering a Thai inspired cocktail menu along with craft beers and local and international wines.
We think Long Chim particularly suits groups (dine on their banquet menu) and is a great corporate option.
Though one thing to note, whilst this might be street food, do not expect to be paying street food prices!
