Not just a Surry Hills institution, but a Sydney institution. Uber trendy Longrain is well known for its Thai cuisine and also boasts some great drinking options. (Bunker Bar, anyone?)

Celebrity Chef Colin Fassnidge’s restaurant. Embracing the ‘nose to tail’ philosophy and being true to his Irish roots, expect to find some unusual cuts of meat on the menu. But the food is good and it’s a hot spot.

- BISHOP SESSA RESTAURANT & BAR
We love the quality of cuisine at Bishop Sessa. Perhaps not as ‘trendy’ as some other Surry Hills restaurants, but nevertheless serving up superb fare at reasonable prices.

Bill Granger’s original restaurant. We’ve been long term fans. Breakfast, lunch or dinner. Nothing fancy – it follows Bill’s philosophy. But, sometimes simple food done well is all you need.
